    My Motion Simulator:
    Okay guys I need a big favour I need a poll of which motherboards Chipset you guys are using as it seems that the information I was given about how many USB host controllers the motherboard has isn't the whole story it depends whether the USB host controllers are share the same PCI-e 3.0 4x equivalent interface along with all other chipset functions to the CPU like intel x299 Chipsets motherboards or whether the controllers, all with their own connection (1 set directly from the Ryzen CPU, a second set directly from PCI-e lanes, and a third set from the Chipset, which shares bandwidth with other components back to the CPU), making it a little bit more effective to share the bandwidth load like the equivalent z470 AMD motherboards.

    So I could really do with people's real-world experiences with whatever version of AMD and intel chipset you're using.

    So if you could let me know in your signatures are replying to this poll which chipset you're using and whether you had USB bandwidth issues requiring that you added a PCI express card to solve it please It will be much appreciated so I can finally get this P3 working.

    I've ordered but not used the Gigabyte X299 Aorus gaming 7 pro so if anybody has any experiences with that would really appreciate your findings from the USB issue.

    My current motherboard is the ASRock fatality Z270 mini ITX that doesn't allow me to expand the PCI express with a usb 3.0 card that would solve the problem as it has run out of slots because it only has one for the GPU.
    If anybody has any preference for me to add to the poll just let me know or just mention it here in a reply if it's a good USB bandwidth solution with your motion simulator.
