On Ashes of the Singularity
According to latest rumors from Videocardz, new scores on two upcoming AMD RX 500 series graphics cards have appeared. Although Ashes of the Singularity isn’t a great benchmark to use for comparisons, there are plenty of scores in a similar range to the RX 580 and RX 560. The AMD RX 580 should compete against the NVIDIA GTX 1070, while the RX 560 might be fast as a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card.

Another high-end model
Both based on B350 chipset
A few days ago ASUS has unveiled two new AMD AM4 300-series motherboards. As we already mentioned a few times, the X370 chipset is followed by the B350 and then the A320. While the first addresses the mid-range market the latter targets the entry-level segment. As a result of that the B350 chipset still allows for overclocking while the A320 doesn’t.

A few days ago AMD's Ryzen stock coolers have appeared online, showcasing their new cooler design. According to the latest reports from Videocardz, one of them might use Intel-style push-pins and the second one comes with a different retention kit. The coolers are capable of removing either 95 or 140 Watts of TDP depending on the model.
Good for workstations and NAS
According to a leak on ASUS’s official site, the upcoming AM4 Prime X370-Pro might be compatible with ECC memory at launch. Furthermore the default DDR4 memory speed is set to 2666 MHz. This new feature seems to be exclusive to AMD's Ryzen CPUs since A-series APUs and the Athlon chips are only compatible with non-ECC DDR4 2400 MHz by default.
