amd revealed on its official website a small event that will take place on August 4where in 1 hour we will see the new AM5 motherboards of its partners: ASUS, ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte and MSI. Although we are going there, it is not that it is something new, in fact, all those presented have already been officially announced.
Most interesting of all is that the introduction to this little event already says: “Support for recently launched AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors“, so it is assumed that just before that day, AMD will have already announced its new processors. This description also specifies that we will only see high-end motherboards based on X670 Extreme (X670E) and X670 chipsets, motherboards listed with their respective image.
“With the recent launch of AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors, the new AM5 chipset gives users high performance in gaming, creation and intensive computing tasks. Supports DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 memory for the fastest NVMe storage to the world, the AM5 platform introduces more performance, power and possibilities than ever before.
In this webinar, join experts Mike Yang, Michiel Berkhout, Anny Hsu, Juan J. Guerrero and Sofos Oikonomou. Learn about upcoming motherboards from partners like ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, GIGABYTE, and MSI and how their AM5 motherboards bring cutting-edge features to market and unleash the full power of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors.”
Differences between AMD X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets
The AMD X670E will be the high-end chip, a version “extreme” of the X670, which from what we know, does not appear to differ from the X670 chipset in terms of functionality or features. However, all X670E motherboards must offer PCI-Express 5.0 connectivity both for the GPU and to bring a new generation of M.2 NVMe SSDs to life, while X670-based motherboards can choose to use PCI-Express 4.0 for the GPU, so it could be said that this n It’s nothing more than a chip focused on improving Premium motherboards, which will include the most advanced connectivity, for anyone who wants to pay that extra with the future in mind, at least for faster SSDs.
chipset AMD B650 It is designed as a budget option, and despite that, it will bring motherboards to life with the interface PCI Express 5.0 for storage cabinet NVMe-SSD M.2. This chip is codenamed Promontory 21, and essentially, high-end chipsets combine two B650 chipsets / Promontory 21 to provide enhanced connectivity. This chip is still manufactured by ASMedia.
