GIGABYTE recently released two AM5 server motherboards and a barebones application that can use Ryzen 7000 processors to build small business or home servers. These boards are powered by the new AMD B650E
chipset, which means full PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and x4 NVMe support.
The models of the two MC13 series motherboards are MC13-LE0 and MC13-LE1, both of which use the M-ATX form factor. The design is different from the general motherboard configuration. It is optimized for rack airflow. The two boards use the same PCB design, but the network part is different. The MC13-LE1 provides two Intel X710 chip 10GbE interfaces, while the MC13-LE0 provides two Intel i210 1GbE interfaces.
There’s also a W332-Z00 AM5 barebones system in an M-ATX tower with a rather nostalgic old configuration inside. The power supply is on the upper left, there are 5.25-inch and 3.5-inch drive bays available, you can choose the processor, memory, storage device, the motherboard uses MC13-NB0, there are two PCIe x16 slots, one 5.0 x16, one 4.0 x4, and two M.2 slots.
