All motherboards besides the H610 series will support memory overclocking (XMP 3.0). As for IO, H670 will feature up to PCIe Gen 5 slots (x16 or x8/x8 electrical) while the rest will feature a single Gen 5 slot. All motherboards expect H610 will have a CPU attached NVMe (Gen 4.0 x4). As for DMI, the H670 boards will have a 4.0 x8 link while B660 and H610 will carry a 4.0 x4 link. In terms of Gen 4 lanes, H670 carries 12, B660 carries 6 and H610 carries none. For Gen 3, H670 carries 12 lanes & both B660/H610 carries 8 lanes. We have more detailed chipset configurations mentioned in the main article here. With that said, we also recently reported the prices of several MSI B660 boards that you can see here.

The motherboards will carry lower price points than the Z690 series and we can expect sub-$100 US options based on the H610 chipset. It is also nice that most of these motherboards have DDR4 support as DDR5 is either too expensive or has severe supply issues at the moment to make it a good option for the budget and mass consumer market.

Motherboard manufacturers including ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock and Biostar will be unveiling their new 600-series designs based on the H670, B660, and H610 chipsets at CES 2022 so stay tuned!
