During Computex 2019, ASRock announced its range of X570 chipset motherboards for launch on 7/7 alongside the Ryzen 3000 series of processors. The ASRock X570 Creator is focused towards content creators with a range of high-end features including 10 G LAN, support for DDR4-4600, and dual Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports. 

The ASRock X570 Creator is geared towards content creators with a similar feature set to the flagship ASRock X570 Aqua, but without the focus on high-end aesthetics, and water cooling. The X570 Creator has a simplistic and elegant theme with silver heatsinks, with black contrast. Its X570 heatsink is actively cooled, and incorporates an M.2 heatsink, with a standalone heatsink for the top slot; the top M.2 slot supports PCIe 4.0 x4 and SATA, while the bottom slot is geared for just PCIe 4.0 x4 drives. For SATA there are a total of eight ports. On the PCIe front, there are three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots which run at x16/x8/x8, and x8/x8/x4, as well as three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots. 

With the ASRock X570 Creator being one of its more higher-end models, it has two rear panel Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports. with an Aquantia AQC107 10 G LAN port, an Intel Gigabit port, Intel's AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 interface, and six rear-panel USB 3.1 G1 Type-A. It also has two DisplayPorts with an input, and output, as well as one HDMI, a 14-phase power delivery; impressively all of this is on an ATX sized PCB. With memory, the ASRock X570 Creator has four slots with support for up to DDR4-4666.

The feature set of the ASRock X570 Creator is similar to its other premium X570 models, but the main difference is primarily in the aesthetic. A cleaner, more professional look, without as much flash and pizazz. ASRock's X570 Creator will be available on 7/7, but the official pricing has still yet to be confirmed.

    high-end professional audio interfaces, among others.

    I wonder what exactly the displayport in ports are for? There is no DP out, so it can't be an optional pass-through, and if it had a capture card, it would be a first and on the info card... Reply

    I think it is compatible with the APUs that have an iGPU.

    And with decent luck it will also support the next generation of APUs.

    I would assume your plug the DP out of your video card into the DP in, then the video can be routed over TB3. Reply

    Oh look, TWO Type-C ports! Reply

    On all modern boards including this, there's one USB 3 10Gb type-c header for a front panel connector too. Do you see that vertical metallic housing on the right/front edge above the sata ports?
    Plus you can always get a Type A to C adapter

    I expect you to sacrifice either one of the m.2 slots or one of the PCIE slots if you use the Thunderbolt ports Reply

    How would you even feed the internal DP post?? Reply

    I've seen a few VR focused GPUs with an internal video port and a drive bay breakout box you could use to route video to the front of your desktop (wonderful for the 3 people whose cases are still old enough to have drive bays not walled off behind a door I guess).

    According to the card next to the board in one picture both display ports are video in not video out; so in this case I guess it's so if you have a GPU with an internal displayport out you can route from the card to the board for thunderbolt passthrough without needing an external cable. If using a discrete GPU the other 99% of users would need to run a DP cable from their GPU to the port in the IO panel to achieve the same.
