The leaks on next-gen X670 motherboards isn't stopping, now it's time for GIGABYTE officially confirming its upcoming AMD X670 motherboards, ready for the world of Zen 4 processors later this year.
Computex 2022 kicks off tomorrow, with GIGABYTE confirming their upcoming "Power of Computing" event will see the company show off their next-gen AMD X670-based motherboards. We are expecting to see GIGABYTE's upcoming X670 AORUS Xtreme, X670 AORUS Master, X670 AORUS Pro AX, and X670 AERO D series motherboards.
GIGABYTE did confirm that their flagship X670 AORUS Xtreme motherboard will be using the "standard" X670 chipset, and not the purported X670E chipset that will offer PCIe 5.0 for both the GPU and SSD -- where some boards are only doing one, and not both. DDR5 will be a standard, however.
