Today, we will be taking a deep dive and rounding up all the AMD X670E & X670 motherboards from ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte & Biostar.

AMD X670E & X670 Motherboards Deep Dive, Featuring ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, Biostar

[Updated - 20/08/22]

AMD and its board partners which include ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, and Biostar put out some really detailed specifications of their upcoming X670E & X670 motherboards during the "Meet The Experts" Livestream. We thought that since we have a little over a month left in the launch, we should be providing you with a deeper dive into what every single board has on offer.

AMD AM5 Platform - A New Beginning

Before we talk motherboards, we have to talk about the platform itself. The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be migrating to a new home known as AM5, the successor to the long-lasting AM4 platform. It marks a fresh start for the AMD Ryzen Desktop family and as such, existing Ryzen CPUs starting with Ryzen 1000 & all the way up to Ryzen 5000 won't be supported by the new platform we will tell you why it is so.

The AM5 platform will first and foremost feature the brand new LGA 1718 socket. That's correct, AMD isn't going the PGA (Pin Grid Array) route anymore and now focusing on LGA (Land Grid Array), similar to what Intel uses on its existing desktop processors. The main reason to go LGA is due to the addition of enhanced and next-gen features such as PCIe Gen 5, DDR5, etc that we will get to see on the AM5 platform. The socket has a single latch & gone are the days of worrying about pins underneath your precious processors.

In terms of features, the AM5 platform will initially support AMD's Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Desktop CPUs and extend that support to future Ryzen CPUs and APUs. The platform offers DDR5-5200 (JEDEC) memory support, up to 28 PCIe lanes (Gen 5 standard), increased NVMe 4.0, and USB 3.2 I/O lanes & we have also heard chatter about native USB 4.0 support which will be a game-changer.

A new feature called EXPO (AMD Extended Profiles for overclocking) will allow enhanced DDR5 memory OC on the new platform, similar to Intel's XMP. It has been a rough road for AM4 to offer decent DDR4 OC capabilities but that has more or less been sorted out by now, we can only expect DDR5 to have a much better OC and compatibility experience compared to DDR4 on AM4 platforms. Furthermore, it looks like the platform will only be DDR5 compatible and we won't see DDR4 options as we do on Intel's existing platform. But with DDR5 prices and availability improving, that won't be that big of a deal for most high-end consumers for who AMD will be aiming first.

AMD X670 Series Platform

The AM5 compliant AMD 600-series motherboards are currently being prepped up by the board makers, The 600-series lineup will initially consist of three chipsets, the X670E, X670, B650E, and B650.

In terms of features, the X670E (Extreme) is designed for the higher-echelon of motherboards with unparalleled capabilities, and extreme overclocking, and will have PCIe 5.0 support for both GPU and storage.

The X670 motherboards will be very similar in offering enthusiast-level overclocking but PCIe Gen 5.0 support for storage and graphics will depend on manufacturers. It is likely that some board makers will go to the cost-effective route and enable PCIe 5.0 support only for the GPU while keeping storage limited to PCIe 4.0. Both X670 chipsets will come in a dual-PCH solution on the motherboard to allow for the increased I/O for the next-gen platform.

One of the highlighted features of the AMD AM5 600-series platform is SAS or Smart Access Storage. This technology will enable GPU decompression with supported Microsoft DirectStorage games. Although there aren't many of those out there yet but expect industry-wide support for this on newer platforms.

As for longevity, AMD hasn't promised anything but they have stated that they want to see the new AM5 socket last at least four to five years, similar to AM4. While there has been a lot of controversy regarding Ryzen support on the initial AM4 motherboards, I believe that AMD has learned and will not follow the same route with AM5.

Expansion slots include two PCIe 5.0 x16 and a single PCIe 4.0 x4 slot. The board can house up to five M.2 devices with two Gen 5.0 x4 onboard the motherboard itself, one from the PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 card (Gen 5.0 x4) and two M.2 slots (1x Gen 5 x4 & 1x Gen 4 x4) on the ROG Zen-Z.2 add-on DIMM. The board also offers a total of 6 SATA III ports. The motherboard has a right-angled ATX power connector and also comes with an additional 6-pin connector for USB Type-C 60W power delivery (which offers 27W without the connection). You'll find an ample amount of I/O features such as WiFi 6E, 10Gb / 2 Gb Ethernet LAN ports, USB 4.0 ports, and premium audio capabilities, just to name a few. Of course, the motherboard will come at a premium and we are talking over $600 US easily.

ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E HERO

The next ASUS ROG motherboard that has been confirmed so far is the Crosshair X670E HERO which is a tamer version of the Extreme and is likely to be priced in the $400-$500 US range. It comes with an 18+2 phase teamed VRM design and uses similar components as the Extreme. It also offers a high-end heatsink and design layout with a Polymo Lighting system embedded over the I/O shield. As for expansion slots, the board offers two PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 and a single PCIe 4.0 x2 slot. The motherboard is listed to support 5 M.2 slots which include two Gen 5.0 x4 (1 with PCIe 5.0 M.2 card), and three Gen 4.0 x4 slots. Storage options include 6 SATA III ports.

The motherboard comes with a single 2.5 GbE LAN port, two USB 4.0 ports, tons of USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, WiFi 6E capabilities, and a high-end audio interface.

ASUS ROG STRIX X670-E WiFi Gaming

The ASUS ROG STRIX X670-E WiFi Gaming adopts a 16-phase power design and comes with a gaming aesthetic with black and grey color tones. The I/O cover has a small LCD that could be customized according to your preferences. The expansion slots include two PCIe 5.0 x16 and a single PCIe Gen 4.0 x16 slot. M.2 options should include three PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 slots & a single PCI-E Gen 4.0 x4 slot. The primary M.2 heatsink looks like it uses a heatpipe-based cooling solution. The storage options include four SATA III ports and there's a vast array of I/O available to users too.

ASUS PRIME X670E-PRO WiFI

ASUS's PRIME X670-E PRO WiFi also seems to be equipped with a 16-phase power delivery that is juiced up through a dual 8-pin connector configuration. We can see the PRIME series back with its unique white and black aesthetic in a futuristic layout. The board features three M.2 heatsinks that support a single PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 and three PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 SSDs. There are two PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 slots and a single PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 slot. There are also four SATA III ports on the motherboard.

ASUS TUF Gaming X670-PLUS WIFI

The ASUS TIF Gaming X670-PLUS WiFI seems to retain the 16-phase design but it is also the only motherboard from the bunch that has one exposed M.2 slot with no heatsink. It is likely that this one is a non-Gen 5.0 port. With that said, there are three PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 M.2 slots and a single PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 slot. PCIe expansion slots include two Gen 5 x16 and a single Gen 4 x4 slot. The TUF Gaming motherboards feature a grey and yellow-colored aesthetic and this board is no different.

ASUS ProArt X670-Creator WiFi

The ASUS ProArt X670-Creator WiFi motherboard features a 16-phase power delivery with a nice acrylic I/O cover, aluminum heatsinks, and an industrial design with its silver and grey aesthetics.

It comes with three PCIe 5.0 x16 slots (x8/x8/x4 electrical) and features two PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 and one PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 slot. The motherboard supports up to 4 SATA III storage devices and comes with a WiFi 6E interface. There's also a 6-pin connector for 60W USB Type-C charging.

MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE Motherboard - The Flagship To Rule Them All!

Starting with the flagship, first, we have to talk about the size of this monster of a motherboard. The MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE will measure 305mm x 288mm. That's slightly smaller than the MEG Z690 GODLIKE but it will definitely be one of the biggest and baddest motherboards out there, one that every other manufacturer will be keeping a close eye on as they try to tackle it with their own X670E flagships.

  • Support For AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs (AM5) Socket
  • 24+2+1 Phase (105A) CPU VRM Design
  • Dual 8-Pin Power Connectors For CPU
  • Four DDR5 DIMM Slots (Up To 128 GB Capacities)
  • EXPO Support With DDR5-5600+ Memory Support
  • 10 Layer & 2 Oz Copper PCB Design
  • Three x16 PCIe Gen 5 Slots (x16/x8/x8 Electrical)
  • Four M.2 Slots (1x Gen 5, 3x Gen 4)
  • M.2 Shield Frozr Heatsinks For M.2 Slots
  • Steel Reinforced PCIe and Memory Slots
  • Dual X670E "Promontory" PCH Dies
  • 8 SATA III Ports, Dual USB 3.2 Type-C Gen 2 Ports (With 60W PD Charging0
  • Dual Front Panel USB 3.0 Headers

In terms of power delivery, the motherboard seems to feature at least 24+2+1 phases with 105A MOSFETs. Power to the CPU is provided through dual 8-pin connectors, a 24-pin ATX connector for the motherboard, one 6-pin power connector (at the bottom) for the PCIe lanes, and one 6-pin PD power connector (next to the 24-pin ATX connector) to deliver PD 60W charging for the front USB 3.2 Gen2x2 20Gbps Type C connector. You can also note the dual X670E PCH's taking up a good amount of room on the motherboard.

There are four DDR5 memory slots on the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard that will support up to 128 GB capacities and while we don't know the speeds for them yet, the native JEDEC speeds for Ryzen 7000 "Raphael" CPUs are set at DDR5-5600 so we can expect over 6/7 Gbps transfer rates with EXPO support. The board is powered by dual 8-pin connectors located close to the DDR5 slots for easy cable management.

There are also placements for several OC-specific features on the board such as Power On/Off and reset switches at the bottom. Storage options include 8 SATA III ports while expansion slots include three PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 (x16/x8/x4 electrical) that run at either x16/x0/x4 or x8/x8/x4 modes.

There are at least four M.2 slots on the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard which include a single PCIe Gen 5 x4 running off the Raphael CPU lanes, and three Gen 4 x4 slots running off the Promontory PCH. The motherboard will also ship with a brand new M.2 XPANDER-Z Gen 5 Dual add-in-card which supports up to two 25110 PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 SSDs.

There are also two USB 3.2 Gen 2 front panel headers (Type-C with 60W power deliver & 20Gb/s) on the motherboard too. MSI's top-tier X670E motherboards will come with a brand new M.2 SSD installation design as a part of its "M.2 Shield Frozr" technology and there will also be magnetic locks next to the M.2 ports. The magnetic locks will provide a connection to the RGB LEDs that are featured on the Shield Frozr heatsinks for M.2_2, M.2_3, and M.2_4 ports. There are also tons of fans (+ pump), RGB, and external headers on the motherboard.

MSI MEG X670E ACE Motherboard - Enthusiast-Tier Design With A Pinch of Gold!

The MSI MEG X670E ACE motherboard was one of the units that the 'MSI Insider team showcased during the webcast. Before talking more about it, let's list down its primary features:

  • Stacked fin-array heatsink with heat-pipe
  • 22+2 phases / 90A power stages
  • Lightning Gen5 slot & M.2 support
  • Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr
  • M.2 Shield Frozr with magnetic design
  • Onboard 10G LAN with WIFI 6E
  • Front USB Type-C supports PD 60W

The MSI MEG X670E ACE motherboard features a very large heatsink with a finned design & it also comes with several M.2 Shield Frozr heatsinks. The most interesting is the one next to the DDR5 DIMM slots which have a tool-less installation design and can easily be removed and latched in to place with a special knob mechanism.

MSI MPG X670E Carbon WIFI Motherboard - An All-Rounder With High-End I/O

MSI has also given the X670E treatment to its next CARBON WIFI motherboard. This means we will be getting the same PCIe Gen 5 support for storage and graphics on this motherboard too. Listed features include:

  • Extended Heatsink with heat-pipe
  • 18+2 phases / 90A power stages
  • Lightning Gen 5 slot & M.2 support
  • Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr
  • Onboard 2.5G LAN & WIFI 6E
  • USB Type-C supports up to DP 2.0

MSI PRO X670-P WIFI - Entry Into The X670 Segment With Quality Features!

Finally, we have the MSI PRO X670-P WIFI which combines stable functionality with high-quality assembly. Now one thing that MSI has told is that the X670E class motherboards will come with a 10-layer PCB design while the X670 motherboards will come with up to 8-layer PCBs. We know that the X670E class motherboards need those increased server-quality PCB layers to maintain the Gen 5.0 signal integrity for both discrete GPUs and storage. Since the X670 motherboard doesn't have to offer both dGPU and M.2 Gen 5 support, they can do away with 8-layers which is still a high-end PCB design. The main features of the motherboard include:

  • Extended Heatsink Design
  • 14+2 phases / 80A SPS stages
  • Lightning Gen 5 M.2 support
  • 1x Double-side M.2 Shield Frozr
  • Onboard 2.5G LAN & WIFI 6E
  • USB Type-C supports up to DP 2.0

ASRock X670E Taichi

The ASRock X670E Taichi shares the same design as the Carrara offering. Both motherboards are equipped with many exciting features and new technology such as PCIe 5.0 & DDR5 capability, the insane IO capability including the support of Thunderbolt 4.0 has pushed the X670 platform even further into a high-end desktop category, and ASRock went all out on the VRM design too, with a total of 26 phases SPS Dr.MOS design on the X670E Taichi, it is the most powerful AM5 product ASRock can offer.

Besides the color difference, I expect the standard Taichi to cost a bit lower considering the other model is more of a collectible item.

ASRock X670E PG Lightning

Lastly, we have the ASRock X670E PG Lightning which is one board that the manufacturer hasn't shown off much. The board is the most entry-level solution but still offers an 18 Phase VRM with an 8+4 pin CPU power connector configuration. It carries a single PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 and Gen 5.0 x4 M.2 slot and comes with the most basic I/O that would want on a motherboard. Since ASRock doesn't have the product page live yet, we can't tell the exact number of USB ports or I/O capabilities but it definitely lacks WiFi 6E.

So with the motherboards out of the way, let's take a look at the individual specs and features that each product has to offer.

Gigabyte X670E AORUS Xtreme Motherboard - Around $500 US Flagship Pricing

The Gigabyte X670E AORUS Xtreme will be the first AM5 flagship from the manufacturer, featuring the AM5 (LGA 1718) socket and an 18 Phase (105A) power delivery that will deliver juice to the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs. The motherboard features dual 8-pin connectors and a 24-pin ATX plug while next to the socket are four DDR5 DIMM slots that feature EXPO (Ryzen Extended Profiles For Overclocking) support and will support up to 128 GB capacities.

ftbpljragaa01u5
ftbplilaiaa35y2
ftbpli9agaajqa

In terms of I/O, the motherboard is equipped with three PCIe x16 slots (1x Gen 5 x8, 2x Gen 4 x 4) and a total of four PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 slots. The huge number of Gen 5 M.2 slots do cut the PCIe slot bandwidth to just x8 lanes but that still provides the same amount of bandwidth as a PCIe Gen 4.0 x16 interface.

The motherboard comes with 6 SATA III ports, large aluminum fin stacks covering the VRMs, and an all-heatsink shroud for the M.2 slots plus the PCH. There's also a Marvell AQC113C chip controller that is routed through a PCIe 4.0 interface for 10 GbE Ethernet LAN along with a huge variety of I/O on the backplate which includes Q-Flash Plus and Clear CMOS buttons. There are at least 10 USB Gen 2 ports plus HDMI/DP ports for the RDNA 2 iGPU.

The AORUS X670E Xtreme motherboard is said to target a price point lower than the current X570 AORUS Xtreme at around $500 US.

Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master Motherboard - The $360 US All-Rounder

Moving to the Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master, this is among Gigabyte's best-selling high-end series which offers a balance between pricing and enthusiast-class features. The VRM is laid out in a 16+2+2 (105A) power delivery that is powered by dual 8-pin connectors. The Aluminum Fin-Array stack covers the VRMs and just like the Xtreme, the motherboard comes in an E-ATX form factor.

ftbqdymacaagpmd
ftbqdxzacaizlj1

In terms of I/O, the motherboard is equipped with three PCIe x16 slots (1x Gen 5 x16, 2x Gen 4 x 4) and a total of three PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 slots. Storage options include six SATA III ports and aesthetics look great as ever with a more industrial approach this time around with a black and metal finish on the heatsinks.

There are 12 USB (10 Gen 2) ports on the back along with a 2.5 GbE Ethernet LAN connector. Unfortunately, the addition of a third Gen 5 M.2 port means that you won't get USB 4.0 on this motherboard. Pricing is said to be similar to the X570S AORUS Master at around $360 US & which should make this board a go-to option for several high-end Ryzen 7000 PC builders.

Gigabyte X670 AORUS PRO AX Motherboard - Entry-Level X670 Class At $300 US

The Gigabyte X670 AORUS PRO AX motherboard is the step-in to the X670 family and aims to be priced at around $300 US. The motherboard will feature a 16+2+2 (90A) power delivery powered by a dual 8-pin connector design. Unlike the other two high-end options which feature a fin-heatsink design, the PRO AX comes with a standard aluminum heatsink which still provides full coverage for cooling.

ftbqmf6aaaem79a
ftbqmfiagamv6g4
ftbqmelauaetypo

In terms of I/O, the motherboard is equipped with three PCIe x16 slots (1x Gen 4 x16, 1x Gen 4 x4, 1x Gen 3 x4) and a total of four PCIe M.2 slots of which one is Gen 5 compliant and the rest are Gen 4 slots.

You also get a similar array of I/O on the backplate with 6 USB Gen 2 ports and four USB 3.0 ports, a single 2.5 GbE LAN port, and dual USB Type-C ports (1x Gen 2x2, 1x Gen 2).

Gigabyte X670 AORUS Elite AX Motherboard - $250 US For Budget Users

Gigabyte goes one tier down on the AORUS lineup with its X670 Elite AX which uses a 16+2+2 phase design, a single Gen 5.0 NVMe slot, and a good bunch of features that one should expect from AMD Ryzen 7000 platforms such as WiFi 6E, 2.5GbE LAN and decent sized heatsinks on the VRM, PCHs & the M.2 slots.

Gigabyte X670(E) AERO D Motherboard - A Full-On Industrial Design Around $400

Lastly, there's the Gigabyte X670(E) AERO D motherboard which should come slightly above the $400 US mark. The motherboard has lots of similarities with the AORUS Master but trades a Gen 5 M.2 slot with the ASMedia ASM4242 USB4 host controller which provides two USB 4 ports on the rear I/O plate.

A rear shot of the motherboard shows the two AMD X670(E) chipsets located right beneath the circuitry for the DDR5 DIMMs. These are two independent chipsets rather than a single substrate featuring two PCH dies. Cooling is provided by the same PCH heatsink that has a chunky aluminum body.
