ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme motherboard + $20 cooler FTW

The new ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme motherboard is being tested, benchmarked, and overclocked to its limits by overclocker Roberto Sampaio. Inside, the Z790-based motherboard is running Intel's new flagship Core i9-13900K "Raptor Lake" CPU, which the overclocker notes is boosting up to 6.5GHz on single-core under light loads.

The overclocker notes that he's testing out the new Z790 motherboard and Core i9-13900K, adding that the "12900K is a kid compared to the 13900K". Roberto said that under full load, Intel's new Core i9-13900K processor had its P-cores running at 5.7GHz and the E-cores running at 4.4GHz but adds that he only started testing yesterday.

ASRock's new B650 LiveMixer motherboard features a splash-like design

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 30, 2022 11:36 PM CDT

AMD's new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPUs are nearly here, as too are the X670 and B650 series motherboards, where we're now seeing ASRock's interesting new B650 LiveMixer motherboard.

ASRock's new B650 LiveMixer motherboard features a splash-like design 01 | TweakTown.com

The new ASRock B650 LiveMixer motherboard has been spotted, leaked with a single image showing its design that is... well... interesting to say the least. I actually really love the design, and hope ASRock is using UV paint that would light up under the right lighting inside of a PC... that would be wild.

ASRock's new B650 LiveMixer is shown here in B650 non-E form, so we should expect just a PCIe 5.0 graphics card or SSD, not both: something the "Extreme" version chipset offers. ASRock is most likely going with a 16+2+1 VRM design, dual EPS power connectors, and a full-sized PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and dual x4 slots (PCIe 4.0).

AMD's new B650E motherboards: 'E for Extreme' with PCIe 5.0 SSD + GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 30, 2022 8:26 PM CDT

AMD has its high-end new X670E and X670 series motherboards on the way, boasting next-gen PCIe 5.0 connectivity for new GPUs and SSDs... but the new mid-range B650E chipset is going to be a real star.

AMD's new B650E motherboards: 'E for Extreme' with PCIe 5.0 SSD + GPU 04 | TweakTown.com

The new B650E chipset ushers in PCIe 5.0 for the mainstream, as the big difference between the "E" and "non-E" motherboards -- where the E stands for "Extreme" is PCIe 5.0 for both GPUs and SSDs... not just one or the other. AMD will provide PCIe 5.0 lanes to at least one of the M.2 slots, while providing full 16 lanes to PCIe 5.0-based graphics cards.

B650E motherboards will benefit consumers greatly: a cheap entry cost with their B650E-based motherboard, a new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPU and if you really wanted... a PCIe 5.0-capable graphics card and PCIe 5.0-capable SSD. It provides that elusive "future-proofing" there, as you've also got DDR5 memory here along with PCIe 5.0, so you'll be good for up to 2025 and beyond.
