AMD’s motherboard companions resembling ASUS, MSI, ASRock, Gigabyte & Biostar have unveiled extra particulars about their prime X670E designs for Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs.
ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock & Biostar Showcase Their High-End AMD X670E Motherboards
The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs might be migrating to a brand new dwelling generally known as AM5, the successor to the long-lasting AM4 platform. It marks a contemporary begin for the Ryzen Desktop household and as such, current Ryzen CPUs beginning with Ryzen 1000 & all the way in which as much as Ryzen 5000 will not be supported by the brand new platform we’ll let you know why it’s so.
The AM5 platform will at the start function the model new LGA 1718 socket. That’s right, AMD is not going the PGA (Pin Grid Array) route anymore and now specializing in LGA (Land Grid Array), just like what Intel makes use of on its current desktop processors. The most important cause to go LGA is because of the addition of enhanced and next-gen options resembling PCIe Gen 5, DDR5, and many others. that we’ll get to see on the AM5 platform. The socket has a single latch & gone are the times of worrying about pins beneath your treasured processors.
Representatives of every motherboard producer joined AMD’s newest “Meet The Experts” live-stream to speak about their next-gen X670E designs but it surely appears to be like like we should be lacking some particulars concerning overclocking and reminiscence assist which is one thing that AMD may not like being talked about proper now though the total announcement of the product lineup is just some weeks away on August twenty ninth with a launch deliberate for August fifteenth. So let’s look into what the brand new high-end motherboard choices have to supply.
ASUS X670E Motherboards
ASUS kicked it off by unveiling its high-end ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme and ROG Crosshair X670E HERO motherboards. The ROG Crosshair motherboards include 20+2 phases for the Extreme & 18+2 phases for the HERO fashions. Both fashions are designed with some insane 110A Power Stages and in a Teamed design. The VCore PWM controller is an Infineon ASP2205 whereas the Power Stages are primarily based on Vishay’s SIC850.
- ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme – 20+2 Phase (110A)
- ROG Crosshair X670E HERO – 18+2 Phase (110A)
ASUS particularly states that the high-end energy supply is a necessity when overclocking the CPU because it results in large present swings and energy demand growing exponentially. Some options highlighted embody WiFi 6E (AX210), 10 GbE Marvell AQC113CS connectors, Gen 5.0 PCIe x16 & M.2, USB 4 and Quick Charge 4+ ports.
MSI X670E Motherboards
MSI might be rolling out 4 model new X670E motherboards inside its MEG, MPG, and PRO lineups. We not too long ago revealed their flagship MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboards and the producer has confirmed the specs and PCB we reported. The VRM configuration for MSI’s X670E motherboard is as listed under:
- MEG X670E GODLIKE – 24 (105A) + 2 + 1
- MEG X670E ACE – 22 (90A) + 2 +1
- MPG X670E Carbon – 18 (90A) + 2 +1
- PRO X670E-P WiFi – 14 (80A) + 2 +1
MSI is pushing issues to the bounds with high-end heatsink designs resembling screwless M.2 Shield Frozr expertise, M.2 XPANDER-Z Gen 5 Dual AIC (supporting as much as two PCIe Gen 5.0 x4) SSDs in actively cooled resolution), 60W USB Type-C energy supply and extra sturdy energy supply for every tier of the motherboard. We additionally get a greater take a look at the MEG X670E GODLIKE which appears to be like as beast as ever with its massively saturated PCB design and tons of IO to work with. More particulars on MSI’s lineup right here.
Gigabyte X670E Motherboards
The lineup that Gigabyte unveiled contains 4 AORUS motherboards which embody X670E AORUS Xtreme, AORUS Master, AORUS Pro AX & AORUS Elite AX. The Xtreme is anticipated to interrupt some OC data on AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs.
- X670E AORUS Xtreme – 18 Phase (SPS 105A) Renesas RAA229628
- X670E AORUS Master – 16 Phase (SPS 105A) Renesas RAA229620
- X670E AORUS Pro AX – 16 Phase (SPS 90A) Infineon XDPE192C3
- X670E AORUS Elite AX – 16 Phase (SPS 70A) Infineon XDPE192C3
We already lined these motherboards together with the AERO mannequin beforehand over right here together with their costs.
ASRock X670E Motherboards
ASRock is showcasing 5 X670E motherboards for the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs. These embody the X670E Taichi Carrara, X670E Taichi, X670E Steel Legend, X670E PRO RS & X670E PG Lightning. All 5 motherboards function full compatibility with the next-gen AMD Zen 4 CPUs together with DDR5 reminiscence and PCIe Gen 5.0.
The firm highlighted a few of the most important options being USB Type-C with quick charging, an 8-layer PCB design, PCIe 5.0, and M.2 fan heatsink design plus DDR5 with safety circuits. The lineup can be detailed by us right here.
Biostar X670E Motherboards
Biostar additionally talked a bit about their flagship X670E VALKYRIE motherboard which contains a 22-phase VRM design and a really solid-looking design that comes with DR.MOS and Digital PWM ICs. The motherboard is a really premium product designed to assist the highest-end AMD Zen 4 CPUs.
Will There Be mATX & Mini-ITX AM5 Motherboards?
Answering a query raised by viewers on whether or not we’ll see mATX and Mini-ITX designs inside the AM5 household, ASRock’s Mike Yang said that there are particular obstacles that they’re engaged on resembling thermal warmth dissipation on such a small kind issue however as soon as a breakthrough is made, they definitely plan on providing smaller board designs for each chipset of the AMD 600-series line.
Do 2280 M.2 SSDs Fit On The New 2510 M.2 Slots?
MSI’s Michiel Berkhout said that the present 2280 M.2 kind issue is totally suitable with the 2510 M.2 slots featured on their motherboards.
Will Gigabyte Have A Tachyon Motherboard For AM5?
Gigabyte’s Sofos Oikonomou has said that there’ll certainly be a Tachyon motherboard primarily based on the AM5 socket however it is going to be primarily based on a distinct chipset, not the X670 so we’re possible taking a look at a B650(E) product.
It is at all times nice to listen to extra data straight from motherboard producers, however key particulars resembling AMD EXPO DDR5 reminiscence and overclocking assist are nonetheless lacking. It appears to be like like we now have to attend till the evaluations which do not come out till the thirteenth of September to get extra information on these however we’ll attempt to offer you extra data on these within the coming weeks.
