In the process of building a new rig to replace my old fx8350 build from 2013. Plan on picking up a 5900x once available and was wondering if there are going to be new motherboards released soon (like an x580) or if it's safe to go with an x570 with updated bios?

As far as we can tell, AMD does not have plans to release a new chipset any time soon.

That is what I would recommend for a 5900x. Just make sure you get one with a sufficient VRM/VRM cooling. Take a look at the Motherboard VRM Tier List

Greatly Appreciated! My plan is to go with: https://www.newegg.com/msi-meg-x570-unify/p/N82E16813144273?Item=N82E16813144273 but I will go through the provided VRM Tier List to confirm. Thanks!

The Unify is a very solid option. It's pretty much an X570 ACE, but without the RGB and dual LAN.

That being said, there are substantially less expensive boards out there that are also very capable for Ryzen, and unless you plan on installing three PCIe 4.0 SSDs, there's not much point in going with X570 as opposed to B550.

Awesome! So I was on the right track :) As far as going with something cheaper, I'm actually comfortable with spending the $300 for that board with the extra pcie 4.0 slots. True, I probably won't be using them off the bat, but since this will be my main rig for probably the next decade I like having the options available for expansion down the road. When I built my fx8350 rig I went with a sabertooth 990fx which was heavily underutilized for many years...but now, every pcie slot is filled and I wish I had more.

Or the non wifi version of the tuf, it's not listed on pcpp but it's the same minus the wifi, or the x570 tomahawk if you can find one in stock. 

If you're set on a 300ish dollar board..

The unify (the one you linked) is quite a good board as well.

Budget's not really a concern. Just going with the best of everything within reason. I see you claim the Meshify c to be the best case to ever exist. That's funny....because that's the case this is going in. Got it sitting in my floor right now with two 140mm noctuas :)

As i said, the boards i listed above are all pretty decent and will handle a 5900x easily, the unify is also quite solid.
