Following the reveal of the AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors, MSI announced its new X670 motherboards which support the latest Ryzen CPUs.
In case you missed their reveal, the Ryzen 7000 CPUs are AMD’s latest processors, and they are the first to use the 5nm FinFET process from TSMC. This new family of CPUs bring lots of new features, including PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 Memory support, as well as performance and efficiency improvements.
As for MSI’s X670 motherboards, the chipset is divided into two segments – X670 Extreme and X670. The X670E supports PCIe 5.0 through both the PCIe slot and M.2 slot. Meanwhile, the X670 motherboards support PCIe 5.0 through the M.2 slot exclusively. Though both segments come with upgrades, including rear DisplayPort 2.0 output for its rear USB Type-C ports.
The X670 motherboards will be available in three product families: the MEG, MPG, and PRO series.
The MEG Series motherboards include the MEG X670E GODLIKE and MEG X670E ACE. These chipsets feature E-ATX PCB sizes and have up to 24+2 VRM phases with 105A Smart Power Stage. The MEG Series motherboards are also equipped with up to 4 onboard M.2 slots, including 1 M.2 PCIe 5.0 x4 slot and a M.2 XPANDER-Z GEN5 DUAL add-on card inside the box for 2 additional PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slots.
Next up is the MPG Series which includes the MPG X670E CARBON WIFI. This motherboard features 2 PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and 4 M.2 slots that are split into 2 M.2 PCIe 5.0 x4 and 2 PCIe 5.0 x4. It comes with 18+2 VRM power phases with 90A and cooled by Extended heatsink design.
Finally, we have the PRO Series for content creators and enterprise users. The PRO Series boards come equipped with 1 M.2 PCIe 5.0 x4 slot, 2.5G LAN and Wi-Fi 6E solution. The PRO X670-P WIFI model also comes with 14+2 Phases Duet Rail Power System and dual 8-pin CPU power connectors.
MSI will launch X670E and X670 motherboards in Fall of 2022.
