AMD isn't far away from unleashing its new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors and new X670E and X670 motherboards, with ASRock's fleet of X670E boards starting at under $300. Not bad at all, ASRock.

ASRock's new family of X670E motherboards will begin with the X670E Steel Legend, which is priced at 278 euros ($280 USD or so) with listings on French retailer websites. French retailers have listed five different X670E motherboards from ASRock, including the X670E PG Lightning, X670E PRO RS, X670E Steel Legend, X670E Taichi, and finally, the X670E Taichi Carrara.

The new ASRock X670E motherboard series

The new flagship ASRock X670E Taichi Carrara motherboard is a new special edition board that's listed for 577 euros (around $580 USD or so), designed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ASRock. Inside, we've got a high-end 26-phase SPS Dr.MOS power delivery, up to 128GB of DDR5 memory is supported with EXPO overclocking: up to DDR5-6600+ (OC) is supported, while dual 8-pin EPS power connectors are on the ASRock X670E Taichi Carrara motherboard.

ASRock also includes two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots (x16/x8 electrical) as well as a single PCIe 5.0 x4 port for a next-gen PCIe 5.0 SSD that will let you push 10GB/sec and over. I/O wise there's also plenty: 5 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, USB 3.2 Gen 1, dual USB 4 ports, Wi-Fi 6E, and enthusiast-grade 2.5GbE ethernet.

ASRock will be launching five new X670E motherboards at first, and each is priced into a segment with an associated CPU. There won't be many people paying $280 or so for the ASRock X670E PG Lightning motherboard with a flagship Ryzen 9 7950X... but it would be perfect for the new mid-range Ryzen 5 7600X "Zen 4" CPU.

If you do buy the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor, then the ASRock X670E Taichi Carrara motherboard (or the plain X670E Taichi non-Carrara board) which is $550+ according to the new French retailer listings.

Below, we've got the motherboards ASRock is preparing, and all the details you need to know:
