A list of X670 X670E motherboards for AMD

When it comes to the new AM5 socket you’ll also be looking for a new motherboard to fit the new Ryzen CPUs. So we bring you all the options for the X670 and X670E motherboards we know of so far.

Initially, only the top-end boards are being released with the new generation. These are the X670E boards which are the extreme versions of the lineup, which have their own benefits over their lower lineups.

When it comes to the motherboard it is certainly a core feature of your build. It connects all the different parts together to let them communicate and work together to create the final product. Although it might not be the most exciting part, it still varies in the features available and what price it will ask for.

Now there are a lot of available options so we bring you what is going to be available to you.

X670E motherboard features – what’s new?

The biggest change in this generation of motherboards will be the new socket design. AMD has finally moved to LGA, meaning the contact pins are now embedded into the motherboard. Rather than on the CPU as we’ve seen before.

This allows for a much denser pin configuration, with 1718 as shown by the LGA 1718 naming. Although it has changed the socket, the size has remained the same. This has allowed for CPU compatibility to remain, and so it shows the consumer-friendly design to stop wastage between new products.

X670E is the Extended version of the chipset. It features the best and most plentiful array of parts on it. These extreme boards will have full PCIe gen 5 speeds for both graphics cards and storage. Focused on overclocking, they will have an SVI-3 power infrastructure for more power stages.

Furthermore, they can feature up to four HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2.0 ports, as now the new Ryzen CPUs will have RDNA 2 GPU on board. These boards can also feature WiFi 6E for faster speeds as well as DDR5 RAM for even faster computation.

Final word

Like we have seen with Nvidia and its RTX 4000 announcement we see only the top-spec options being revealed. This means if you want to build something sooner than later you will have to splash out. So it may be worth waiting for the cheaper non-E models or B650 boards to get a better choice.

However, if you are keen on an X670E motherboard there are a lot of options to pick from. Especially with ASUS’ great list, there are plenty to pick from. A lot of choices will come down to your needs like budget, design, and features. Since there is a lot of variety between all the options.

The X670E will be a great board if you really want to push your CPUs to the maximum with great overclocking. But also have great connectivity and seeds to keep everything running smoothly.

X670 and X670E motherboard FAQs

Will there be X670 motherboards?

Although currently there are mainly just X670E motherboards being listed the cheaper non-Extreme boards are on the way too. They may be released later as they are cheaper and less featureful so you may have to wait to get a better deal on your next-gen MOBO.

Whats the difference between X670 and X670E?

The main difference between the X670 and X670E is the PCIe 5.0 availability across the board. The E model offers it on both storage and PCIe slots, whilst the non-E only does so for one of the two. The Extreme board also is more focused on overclocking and will likely have much better VRMs and power options.

Is AM5 compatible with DDR4?

No, AMD has dropped support for DDR4 and the new AM5 platform only supports DDR5 memory. All motherboards will need to use it which should hopefully bring its price down.
