ASRock AMD 600 Series Motherboard List Revealed

There have been reports before, exposing the models of some of ASRock’s Z790 and H770 motherboards, confirming that Intel’s next-generation motherboards will also have DDR4 versions. In addition to Intel’s Raptor Lake, AMD is also launching a Ryzen 7000-series CPU called Raphael this year, with the new Zen 4 architecture and AM5 platform bringing more changes than Intel.

VideoCardz has received a list of AMD 600 series motherboards from ASRock. In addition to AMD’s announced X670E, X670, and B650 chipsets, there is also an unconfirmed B650E chipset. Compared with the B650, the B650E is likely to further increase the support for PCIe 5.0, which means having a better PCB to meet the support for PCIe 5.0, and the cost will be higher.

It is rumored that both the X670 and B650 series support CPU and memory overclocking. It’s unclear whether the X670 will provide more overclocking capabilities based on the X670, and AMD is expected to reveal all the details of the 600-series chipset in the next few weeks. Previously exposed information shows that Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake still has only 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes directly connected to the CPU. This means that if a PCIe 5.0 SSD is used, it will have to share the PCIe 5.0 lanes used by the discrete graphics card. Compared to Intel’s limited support for PCIe 5.0 SSDs, AMD’s AM5 platform uses PCIe 5.0 to be more comprehensive and flexible.

Additionally, there are rumors that the B650 motherboards will be launched a little later than the X670 series motherboards, which may come with the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, and the B650 motherboards one to two months later. As for the situation of the B650E chipset, we don’t know yet, and the development progress should be synchronized with other chipsets.
