During an AMD motherboard partner’s event, representatives showed AM5 motherboards for Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The boards feature the LGA1718 socket, designed for AMD’s upcoming series of Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The motherboard manufacturers highlighted some of the design features of their AM5 boards. The socket is compatible with AMD’s upcoming series of Ryzen 7000 CPUs, and the boards are designed to offer a range of features and capabilities.
The new boards support PCI Express 5.0 and DDR5 memory; most have more 16 lanes and 16x slots than their predecessors. The power delivery specification has also been updated to support PCIe 5.0 and AM4 CPU coolers with higher compatibility. SSDs and coolers with PCIe 5.0 support will be available later this year.
AMD Ryzen 7000 socket, chipset, and motherboards
The AMD Ryzen 7000 series is a line of high-performance CPUs released by AMD in 2022. The CPUs are based on the “Zen 3” microarchitecture and are manufactured on a 7 nm process. They are compatible with the AM4 socket and require a motherboard with an X670 or B650 chipset.
The Ryzen 7000 series includes the flagship Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G CPU, which features 8 cores and 16 threads. It has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and a boost clock speed of 4.4 GHz. It also supports overclocking, PCIe 5.0, and SSDs.
ASUS and ASRock have announced X670E Taichi and X670E motherboards for the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. These motherboards feature the AM5 socket, though AMD has not yet released any CPUs for this socket.
Multiple Ryzen 7000 CPUs Expected To Be Launched
Multiple Ryzen 7000 CPUs are expected to be launched soon, according to sources familiar with the matter. The CPUs in question are part of the Ryzen 3000 series based on the “Zen 2” architecture. The launch is expected to take place sometime in Q3 2019.
These new CPUs will require a new motherboard chipset, dubbed “X670”. X670 Extreme motherboards are already in development by some manufacturers. It is unclear whether or not existing Ryzen 3000-series CPUs will be compatible with these new motherboards.
ASRock’s X670E Taichi is one of the company’s flagship motherboards for AMD’s AM5 platform, and it offers several features that are sure to appeal to enthusiasts. Among these are support for PCIe 5.0, which allows for speeds of up to 8 GT/s; a Cooler Master-designed heatsink and fan combo; and M.2 slots for up to four NVMe SSDs. The board also has USB 3.2 Gen 2 and Thunderbolt 4 support, as well as Intel Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5 GbE LAN.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus Xtreme motherboards are its flagship AM5 offerings, and they support PCIe 5.0 for the latest AMD CPUs. The X670 Aorus Extreme has four PCIe 5.0 M.2 slots and two PCIe 4.0 ports, while the X670E Aorus XTreme has two PCIe 5.0 M.2 slots and four PCIe 4.0 ports. Both boards also support up to four SATA SSDs and USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C ports.
Biostar is a company that makes motherboards. Their motherboards are known to be compatible with AMD and Valkyrie CPUs. They also have USB and PCIe ports. Their latest motherboard, the AM5, is compatible with USB 3.2 and PCIe 5.0. It also has an M.2 port for 5.0 Gbps data transfer speeds.
Asus’ ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme is a top-end gaming motherboard based on the upcoming AMD X670 chipset. It supports the latest PCIe 5.0 and USB 4 standards and comes with a massive array of features for gamers and enthusiasts.
