AMD X670E & X670 Motherboards Roundup Ft. ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, Biostar


Right now, we will likely be taking a deep dive and rounding up all of the AMD X670E & X670 motherboards from ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte & Biostar.

AMD X670E & X670 Motherboards Deep Dive, That includes ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, Biostar

[Updated – 07/08/22]

AMD and its board companions which embody ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, and Biostar put out some actually detailed specs of their upcoming X670E & X670 motherboards through the “Meet The Specialists” Livestream. We thought that since we now have just a little over a month left within the launch, we needs to be offering you with a deeper dive into what each single board has on supply.

AMD AM5 Platform – A New Starting

Earlier than we discuss motherboards, we now have to speak in regards to the platform itself. The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs will likely be migrating to a brand new residence often called AM5, the successor to the long-lasting AM4 platform. It marks a recent begin for the AMD 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 are going to inform you why it’s so.

The AM5 platform will in the beginning function the model new LGA 1718 socket. That is right, 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 current desktop processors. The principle purpose to go LGA is as a result of addition of enhanced and next-gen options reminiscent of PCIe Gen 5, DDR5, and so forth that we are going to 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.

When it comes to options, the AM5 platform will initially help AMD’s Ryzen 7000 ‘Zen 4’ Desktop CPUs and lengthen that help to future Ryzen CPUs and APUs. The platform gives DDR5-5200 (JEDEC) reminiscence help, as much as 28 PCIe lanes (Gen 5 commonplace), elevated NVMe 4.0, and USB 3.2 I/O lanes & we now have additionally heard chatter about native USB 4.0 help which will likely be a game-changer.

A brand new function referred to as EXPO (AMD Prolonged Profiles for overclocking) will enable enhanced DDR5 reminiscence OC on the brand new platform, much like Intel’s XMP. It has been a tough street for AM4 to supply first rate DDR4 OC capabilities however that has kind of been sorted out by now, we will solely count on DDR5 to have a significantly better OC and compatibility expertise in comparison with DDR4 on AM4 platforms. Moreover, it appears just like the platform will solely be DDR5 suitable and we can’t see DDR4 choices as we do on Intel’s current platform. However with DDR5 costs and availability bettering, that will not be that large of a deal for many high-end customers for who AMD will likely be aiming first.

AMD X670 Sequence Platform

The AM5 compliant AMD 600-series motherboards are presently being prepped up by the board makers, The 600-series lineup will initially include three chipsets, the X670E, X670, B650E, and B650.

When it comes to options, the X670E (Excessive) is designed for the higher-echelon of motherboards with unparalleled capabilities, and excessive overclocking, and can have PCIe 5.0 help for each GPU and storage.

The X670 motherboards will likely be very comparable in providing enthusiast-level overclocking however PCIe Gen 5.0 help for storage and graphics will rely on producers. It’s seemingly that some board makers will go to the cost-effective route and allow PCIe 5.0 help just for the GPU whereas preserving storage restricted to PCIe 4.0. Each X670 chipsets will are available a dual-PCH resolution on the motherboard to permit for the elevated I/O for the next-gen platform.

One of many highlighted options of the AMD AM5 600-series platform is SAS or Good Entry Storage. This know-how will allow GPU decompression with supported Microsoft DirectStorage video games. Though there aren’t lots of these on the market but however count on industry-wide help for this on newer platforms.

As for longevity, AMD hasn’t promised something however they’ve said that they need to see the brand new AM5 socket final no less than 4 to 5 years, much like AM4. Whereas there was quite a lot of controversy relating to Ryzen help on the preliminary AM4 motherboards, I imagine that AMD has realized and won’t observe the identical route with AM5.
