Once is not custom, AMD will change platform for the release of its Ryzen 7000 with new motherboards at stake.

When the Ryzen 7000s are released, ASRock will, as usual, be among the first to offer us compatible motherboards. The socket change – AMD will swap the AM4 for a more modern AM5 – will effectively require changing this essential component of any PC.

Two PCIe 5.0 x16 ports, one M.2 PCIe 5.0

Among the models that are sure to make up ASRock’s AM5 catalog, it is certain that the X670E Taichi will be in a good place. The card is already presented on the official website of the manufacturer. The opportunity to observe it a little more in detail.

Of course, ASRock mentions support for Ryzen 7000 through socket AM5. There is also a 26-phase SPS Dr.MOS power stage, which should convince the most demanding of overclockers. On the PCI Express side, we notice the presence of only two ports, so the trend to reduce these slots continues.

Both are logically in x16 and, more interestingly, they are at the PCIe 5.0 standard that AMD introduced for the first time in its catalog with the Ryzen 7000 processors. Note also that only one of the M.2 ports is planned for PCIe 5.0: it is called ‘Blazing’ while the other three M.2 (PCIe Gen 4.0) are called ‘Hyper’ as ASRock is used to.

The X670E Taichi incorporates 2 USB 4 certified Thunderbolt 4 ports. header USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 is included in addition to 5 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports on the back. Only an HDMI is present and the Ethernet is entrusted to a Killer E3100G 2.5 GbE. The SATA has 8 ports and the audio relies on a Realtek ALC4082 USB and an ESS Saber 9218 DAC.
