AMD's due to launch its Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Generation processors this November, starting with a 24 core model. Rumour has it that this launch will be accompanied by new motherboards, sporting the new TRX40 name and support for new features such as PCIe 4.0. 

While new motherboards are commonplace for new CPU launches, at the time of writing it is unknown whether or not AMD's upcoming TRX40 motherboards will support older Threadripper processors, and if today's X399 motherboards will support 3rd Generation Threadripper processors. 

Now, a TRX40 motherboard from Gigabyte has been pictured, featuring the Aorus name, support for processors with TDPs as high as 280W and four PCIe 4.0 x16 slots.  

Rumour has it that AMD plans to reveal its Ruzen 3000 series Threadripper processors on November 5th alongside its TRX40 series motherboard lineup. Judging from the image below the TRX40 CPU socket is the same as today's Threadripper processors, making the platform's rumoured lack of backwards compatibility rather confusing. 

The image below comes from Gigabyte Aorus South Africa through Twitter.
