AMD X670 motherboards have been unveiled thanks to the latest press releases, we now have eyes on what tech an X670 motherboard may feature. We have speculated a lot here at WePC, after clawing together various leaks and stories around what the new AM5 motherboards may or may not feature. It’s nice to get some official clarification from the manufacturers themselves.
AM5 motherboards are set to be unveiled at Computex 2022 alongside AMD Zen 4 Raphael CPUs. AM5 is the new platform developed by AMD that will support the new Zen 4 CPUs, built off an all-new LGA 1718 socket, AM5 will be the first LGA-based system AMD will ever use.
“Moreover, the latest AMD Socket AM5 motherboards including the gaming series of X670 AORUS XTREME, MASTER, PRO AX, and X670 AERO D for designers will be first exposed in this exhibition as well. Users can take a sneak peek at the advanced design and extensive features of PCIe 5.0 graphics slot and M.2 Gen5 interface on GIGABYTE motherboards.”
ASRock revealed a video on youtube that has since been taken down, but here is a description of the video via WccfTech.
“ASRock reveals a series of motherboards based on the revolutionary AMD X670 chipset. The new motherboards are equipped with many exciting features and new technology such as PCIe 5.0 & DDR5 capability, the insane IO capability including the support of Thunderbolt 4.0 has pushed the X670 platform even further into a high-end desktop category, and ASRock went all out on the VRM design too, with a total of 26 phases SPS Dr.MOS design on the X670E Taichi, it is the most powerful AM5 product ASRock can offer, and on top of that, there’s a special edition motherboard X670E Taichi Carrara to celebrate the 20th birthday of ASRock!”
As you can see, both motherboard manufacturers speak a lot of DDR5 capabilities and PCIe Gen 5 compatibility. These are both technologies in need of an upgrade to bring team red back in the running. AM4 has suffered from success for long enough, and its age is starting to show. It’s time to pass the torch and let a new platform lead AMD into a better tomorrow.
We hope AMD meets all of our expectations here at WePC because from what we’ve seen so far, we know AMD is capable of bigger and better things. Just look at how the 5800X3D took down the 12900K recently.
