Recent off of somebody’s display screen displaying an Excel spreadsheet is a screenshot from common leaker chi11eddog (@g01d3nm4ng0 on Twitter) that would appear to listing what is probably going all of MSI’s B760-chipset motherboards. The road-up consists of each DDR4 and DDR5 motherboards, and ranges from the PRO B760M-A WiFi DDR4 at $169 on as much as the MAG B760 Tomahawk WiFi at $229.
Additionally attention-grabbing is that this comparability picture from one other Twitter leaker, 포시포시 (@harukaze5719 on Twitter). It pits the leaked MSI B760 pricing in opposition to the identical firm’s launch pricing for its B660 motherboards. A few boards have really gone down in worth, together with the whole micro-ATX “Mortar” lineup, whereas the ATX Tomahawk boards are each going up by $10. The rumor was that pricing for 700-series motherboards can be barely greater, so the distinction is curious.
Intel hasn’t really introduced any 700-series chipsets in addition to the extant Z790, so we do not actually know the specs, however Chinese language tech web site Expreview appears to have the main points. Poring over the chart, we see the standard drop in PCIe and USB connectivity as you progress down the stack. The minimize from eight DMI 4.0 lanes to only 4 in B760 appears fairly important, though it has to stated that the funds chipset drops lots of its high-speed connectivity choices as effectively, decreasing the necessity for plenty of throughput to the CPU.
As Intel hasn’t introduced these merchandise but, we do not know after they’ll launch, but it surely’s a good wager that we’ll discover out extra at CES subsequent week.
