AMD introduced 600-series chipsets for Ryzen 7000 with DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support

AMD introduced 600-series chipsets for Ryzen 7000 with DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support

During the speech at Computex 2022 AMD CEO Lisa Su and her team announced new products.
AMD chipset 600-series and new Socket AM5 (LGA 1718), which supports processors with TDP up to 170 W, were introduced to the Ryzen 7000 desktop platform.
New platform will offer support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 bus for graphics cards and/or memory sticks.
As expected, flagship AMD X670E (Extreme) chipset will offer maximum performance and overclocking capability, it will be used in flagship motherboards.
It will also allow PCIe 5.0 to connect both SSDs and graphics cards.
AMD notes that \"PCIe 5.0 will be everywhere\" here.A simpler X670 model for \"enthusiast overclockers\" is also being prepared for release, also with PCIe 5.0 support for drives and, optionally, for GPUs.
Apparently, motherboard manufacturers will decide which interface to connect to the PCIe x16 connectors.
AMD didn't comment on the difference between X670 and X670E chipsets.
Also, B650 chipset, which is going to be used in entry-to-midrange boards, was presented.
It will only connect memory drives via PCIe 5.0 while the graphics cards will use PCIe 4.0.
Company representatives noted that the new bus will be supported by NVMe storages, already under development by Gigabyte, Corsair, MSI and others, and provides read speeds more than 60% faster than PCIe 4.0.
AMD 600-series motherboards will be able to support up to 24 lanes of PCIe 5.0 for GPU and SSD, up to 14 USB ports of up to 20Gbps (SuperSpeed USB), Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 (LE).
Additionally, it became known that the 600-series motherboards will get up to four video ports, including HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort, allowing you to connect multiple monitors simultaneously.The new socket AM5 (LGA 1718) comes to replace AM4, which was introduced back in 2016 and is still used by AMD - the last chip for it was introduced this year, it Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
The new socket favourably differs in performance: instead of PGA (legs on the processor) AMD has implemented LGA connection, when the chip has only contact pads, and the legs are in the socket itself.
As Intel has been doing since the noughties.
At the same time, the developers stressed that the new AM5 supports cooling systems designed for AM4.
It became known that the new AM5 platform also supports SmartAccess Storage technology, which is designed for \"pumping up\" the memory performance.
But AMD didn't go into details.Among the motherboard models announced at Computex 2022 are ASRock X670E Taichi, ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, Biostar X670E Valkyrie, GIGABYTE X670 Aorus Xtreme and MSI MEG X670E Ace.
