ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock & Biostar Showcase Their High-End AMD X670E Motherboards
The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs shall be migrating to a brand new house often called AM5, the successor to the long-lasting AM4 platform. It marks a contemporary begin for the Ryzen Desktop household and as such, present 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 inform you why it’s so.
The AM5 platform will at the start function the model new LGA 1718 socket. That is appropriate, AMD is not going the PGA (Pin Grid Array) route anymore and now specializing in LGA (Land Grid Array), much like what Intel makes use of on its present desktop processors. The primary purpose to go LGA is because of the addition of enhanced and next-gen options resembling PCIe Gen 5, DDR5, and so on 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 Consultants” live-stream to speak about their next-gen X670E designs but it surely appears like we should still be lacking some particulars relating to overclocking and reminiscence help which is one thing that AMD may not like being talked about proper now though the total announcement of the product lineup is only a few weeks away on twenty ninth August with a launch deliberate for fifteenth of August. So let’s look into what the brand new high-end motherboard choices have to supply.
ASUS X670E Motherboards

The ROG Crosshair motherboards include 20+2 phases for the Excessive & 18+2 phases for the HERO fashions. Each fashions are designed with some insane 110A Energy Levels and in a Teamed design. The VCore PWM controller is an Infineon ASP2205 whereas the Energy Levels are primarily based on Vishay’s SIC850.
- ROG Crosshair X670E Excessive – 20+2 Part (110A)
- ROG Crosshair X670E HERO – 18+2 Part (110A)
ASUS particularly states that the high-end energy supply is a necessity when overclocking the CPU because it results in huge present swings and energy demand growing exponentially. Some options highlighted embrace WiFi 6E (AX210), 10 GbE Marvell AQC113CS connectors, Gen 5.0 PCIe x16 & M.2, USB 4 and Fast Cost 4+ ports.
MSI X670E Motherboards
MSI shall 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 boundaries with high-end heatsink designs resembling screwless M.2 Protect Frozr know-how, M.2 XPANDER-Z Gen 5 Twin AIC (supporting as much as two PCIe Gen 5.0 x4) SSDs in actively cooled resolution), 60W USB Kind-C energy supply and extra strong energy supply for every tier of the motherboard. We additionally get a greater take a look at the MEG X670E GODLIKE which appears as beast as ever with its massively saturated PCB design and tons of IO to work with. Extra particulars on MSI’s lineup right here.

ASRock X670E Motherboards
ASRock is showcasing 5 X670E motherboards for the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs. These embrace the X670E Taichi Carrara, X670E Taichi, X670E Metal 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 corporate highlighted a few of the primary options being USB Kind-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 incorporates 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 help 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 acknowledged that there are particular obstacles that they’re engaged on resembling thermal warmth dissipation on such a small type issue however as soon as a breakthrough is made, they actually plan on providing smaller board designs for each chipset of the AMD 600-series line.
Do 2280 M.2 SSDs Match On The New 2510 M.2 Slots?
MSI’s Michiel Berkhout acknowledged that the present 2280 M.2 type issue is totally appropriate with the 2510 M.2 slots featured on their motherboards.
Will Gigabyte Have A Tachyon Motherboard For AM5?
Gigabyte’s Sofos Oikonomou has acknowledged that there’ll certainly be a Tachyon motherboard primarily based on the AM5 socket however will probably be primarily based on a distinct chipset, not the X670 so we’re probably taking a look at a B650(E) product.
It’s at all times nice to listen to extra info instantly from motherboard producers however key particulars resembling AMD EXPO DDR5 reminiscence and overclocking help are nonetheless lacking. It appears like we now have to attend until the opinions which do not come out till the thirteenth of September to get extra knowledge on these however we’ll attempt to offer you extra info on these within the coming weeks.
