Overall, it appears that no board partner talked about the maximum DDR5 memory speed that their motherboard would support, but I'm sure that will be confirmed soon. Another thing to note is that easy M.2 SSD installation will be on most of the higher-end boards, and doesn't seem to be exclusive to any of the companies. The future is super-fast M.2 SSDs after all.

Wccftech posted up the PCB design of the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard, with its gigantic E-ATX form factor measuring in at a huge 305 x 288mm. MSI will be using AMD's powerful new X670E chipset, which will give PCIe 5.0 abilities to next-gen graphics cards and M.2 NVMe SSDs.

For the geeks: we have 24-pin ATX power, dual 8-pin and dual 6-pin power connectors that one of them being dedicated to USB Power Delivery of up to 60W. MSI is using a monster 24+2+1 phase VRM and 105A Power Stage design. If we compare this against MSI's current MEG X570 GODLIKE, which has just 14 phases for the CPU... the new X670E GODLIKE is a crazy upgrade.

MSI X670 + B650 motherboards should have screwless M.2 SSD access

Anthony Garreffa | Jul 18, 2022 6:26 PM CDT

MSI detailed one of the user-friendly functions of its next-gen AMD X670 + B650-based motherboards during its recent MSI Insider Livestream.

MSI X670 + B650 motherboards should have screwless M.2 SSD access 01 | TweakTown.com

We are to expect MSI to use screwless + toolless M.2 SSD installation on its new X670 + B650 motherboards, something that MSI is calling "Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr" that lets users install an M.2 SSD under the Shield Frozr M.2 heat sink... all without any screws or tools required.

MSI's upcoming MEG + MPG family of X670 and B650 motherboards will have the new "Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr" feature, including the MEG X670E GODLIKE, MEG X670E ACE, the MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi, and many others. For the motherboards without the "Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr" feature, you'll have EZ M.2 clips that also allow for simple installation, where you can slide the M.2 SSD under the non-Shield Frozr M.2 heat sink.

The current 600-series motherboards from MSI will need a BIOS update, and not all of them have a new BIOS for you to prepare yourself for Intel's upcoming 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs. There's a larger list below, and their respective BIOS versions that are now available.

We should expect MSI to push out BIOS updates for its full fleet of 600-series motherboards, as we lead into the launch of the new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs later this year. MSI will of course have its own next-gen 700-series motherboards led by the new flagship Z790 chipset, which will arrive later this year.

ASRock B650E motherboards teased: next-gen PCIe 5.0 SSD + GPU support

Anthony Garreffa | Jul 11, 2022 8:27 PM CDT

AMD is splitting up its chipsets like usual for its upcoming 600-series chipsets, with ASRock's upcoming AMD 600-series motherboard list being leaked... teasing a B650E chipset is coming.

ASRock B650E motherboards teased: next-gen PCIe 5.0 SSD + GPU support 03 | TweakTown.com

The new X670E chipset from AMD is an "Extreme" version of the X670, both of which will support next-gen PCIe 5.0 SSDs and PCIe 5.0 GPUs... but the X670 Extreme (or X670E) will have "PCIe 5.0 everywhere" which means both PCIe 5.0 SSD + GPU at the same time. The regular non-E variant in the X670 will have PCIe 5.0-ready SSDs, but you'll need to go "Extreme" if you want both.

This means that the B650E chipset should see higher motherboard prices in the mid-range, but you'll get Zen 4 CPU support, DDR5 memory, and then PCIe 5.0 support for both your GPU and SSD of the future. Motherboard makers will also use higher-end PCBs packing improved signaling to comply with the strict Gen5 protocol specs.
