Cool, thanks!The Gaming Pro Carbon has a few extra features that the Tomahawk lacks, like integrated wifi, an audio AMP with a better sound chip (Realtek ALC1220 on the Pro Carbon vs Realtek ALC892 on the Tomahawk), an aditional M.2 port (but I would suspect some part of the price difference may be the RGB). Physically it is closer to the X470 Gaming Plus, but without the X470 features( SLI) and with and added wifi module. (edit the X470 Gaming Plus seems to also have the Realtek ALC892).
The Tomahawk is perfectly fine though. VRM seems to be just as good.
The A-Pro seems to be the same as the Tomhawk just with different ports, lighting and aesthetics.
Though I wonder, these say they're for Ryzen 1st and 2nd gens - will they work with the 3rd gen Ryzens that are supposedly just around the corner? Or will those only work on newer/more expensive motherboards?
Basically, how future proof are they (the motherboards listed above)?
