You can already see part of the design of the ASRock X670E Taichi, one of the company’s high-end motherboards to be announced next week at Computex. Obviously there are no specs, but we can see the new take AMD AM5 with the LGA design, where the pins will now be fixed in the socket, and not the CPU, one can see DDR5 RAM slotsat least two PCI-Express lines, where at least one of them would be PCIe 5.0 x16and space for multiple M.2 SSDs hidden under heatsinks that maintain the aesthetics of the motherboard.
Perhaps the most interesting thing concerns the AMD X670E chipset, as it could be actively cooled as happened with the AMD X570. Remember that the AMD X670E chipset is identical to the AMD X670, but it is used to identify motherboards that offer a PCI-Express 5.0 interface for the graphics card and an SSD storage unit. Also, remember that these chips are created by joining two AMD B660 chips.
With Computex just around the corner, it’s clear that the leaks around anything announced there are going to intensify.
Regarding the design change from a PGA processor to an LGA socket like Intel’s, it was stated that this decision was based solely on in the required pin density for next-generation connectivity and interfaces (PCIe Gen5 or DDR5). The platform simply needed to have more connections to the processor, and pin PGA processors are simply not designed for this task. Despite the change, it will be backward compatible with current AM4 cooling systems.
