ASRock X670E Taichi features 26-phase SPS Dr.MOS, M.2 supporting PCIe 5.0
ASRock announced the launch of three X670 motherboards during COMPUTEX. The X670E Taichi and X670E Steel Legend for high-end users and enthusiasts, and the X670E PRO RS for mainstream users, both support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. In addition, ASRock has a special edition motherboard called the X670E Taichi Carrara to celebrate its 20th birthday.
Since AMD’s Ryzen 7000-series CPUs are still not available, it’s going to be a while before we see these in the retail market. However, ASRock has recently started to update the products on the official website, and put some X670E Taichi information on it. Although the information is still limited, you can learn more details about the products.
The X670E Taichi adopts a 26-phase SPS Dr.MOS design and provides a pair of PCIe x16 slots, sharing 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes from the CPU. If both slots are used, they will operate in dual x8 mode. The motherboard has four M.2 slots, one of which is called Blazing M.2 and can support PCIe 5.0, and the other three M.2 slots are PCIe 4.0. The motherboard has a front-facing one USB Type-C Gen 3.2 Gen2x2 (20 Gbps) port, two Thunderbolt 4 ports that are also USB4 certified, and there are eight SATA ports.
The motherboard’s I/O location has five USB 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) ports and three USB 3.2 Gen1, equipped with Killer E3100G 2.5G LAN and Killer AX1675X 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6E+Bluetooth), supports Killer DoubleShot Pro, plus Realtek ALC4082 audio solution and ESS Sabre 9218 DAC.
