There have been a lot of rumors about AMD 600 series motherboards in the past few days, claiming that we will see new X670 and B650 motherboards at Computex 2022. Now, right before AMD’s keynote, X670 motherboard details from vendors such as ASRock and Asus have appeared online.
Wccftech said earlier this week that the B650, X670, and X670E motherboards will be showcased at Computex 2022. The first two should be direct successors to the B550 and X570, while the X670E looks like the higher-end X670, with the “E” standing for Extreme.
The X670e is rumored to support PCIe 5.0 storage and graphics connectivity as a baseline, while the X670 only supports PCIe 4.0. The memory specs are still unknown, but given the mandatory PCIe 5.0 connection, we wouldn’t be surprised if all X670E boards support DDR5 memory, while the X670 could support either DDR4 or DDR5 memory.
Shortly after these early reports surfaced, ASRock accidentally uploaded a video showing off its X670E Taichi motherboard. The video was later privatized, but VideoCardz quickly documented the evidence.
Finally, the Asus X670-P Prime WiFi PCB schematic was leaked by HXL on Baidu . In it, you can see DDR5 memory slots, a 14-phase VRM design, and a single PCIe x16 interface. Most surprising, however, is the dual chipset, which is in line with long-standing rumors that the new motherboards will feature two ASMedia Promontory chips. In addition to this motherboard, the ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi and ProArt B650-Creator boards were mentioned.
