AMD will hold another Meet the Experts web conference on October 4.Motherboard vendor partners are invited to the event.They will be demonstrating their solutions based on new AMD B650 and B650E (Extreme) chipsets for Ryzen 7000 CPUs.Among the invited guests are ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte and Biostar, who will briefly share the information about their products for 60 minutes.Image source: VideoCardzA similar event AMD held in early August.Then the company's partners showed motherboards on the X670 and X670E chipsets.At the event in October, expect the participation of AMD Product Marketing Manager, Don Waligroski.Ryzen 7000 processors will go on sale September 27.The same day we will begin selling X670E and X670 chipset based motherboards.The models based on B650 and B650E chipsets will not be available until October. The key difference between Extreme boards is the support for PCIe 5.0 interface for graphics cards and NVMe SSDs.On X670 and B650 chipsets, the availability of PCIe 5.0 support is optional and will depend on the implementation of a particular board model.
During presentation of Ryzen 7000 processors AMD reminded that back in May this year it introduced chipsets 600-series (X670E, X670 and B650) for motherboards, which will be used by new processors.Along with this, manufacturer has announced another system logic - AMD B650E.Image source: AMDThe presentation, speaking at the corporate vice president and general manager of AMD customer business, David McAfee recalled the key features of Socket AM5 platform.These are support for DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 interface.However, the most important feature of the new platform is the new CPU socket, actually, Socket AM5.This is a socket LGA-format, which is characterized by the presence of 1718 pins and the ability to transmit up to 230 W of power to the processor.At the same time the new socket is compatible to the cooling systems that were designed for Socket AM4.AMD B650E chipset in its turn belongs to the \"Extreme\" series.It will offer all the key features of usual B650 chipset, as well as additional features.Particularly, this chipset will support PCIe 5.0 interface for at least one M.2 slot for NVMe SSD.Also, chipset based motherboards will be able to offer PCIe 5.0 support for graphic gas pedals, which will be unavailable with B650 based motherboards.It will either be PCIe 5.0 for SSDs or for graphics, but not both.The decision to make cards based on the B650E chipset support PCIe 5.0 will be up to manufacturers.They will be able to use more expensive components to make the PCIe 5.0 interface operational, thus increasing its potential for future updates, or they can use a more modest set of controllers to support PCIe 4.0, which will reduce the final cost of the board itself, making it more attractive to the consumer.However, at the same time, this would limit its potential for future upgrades. The company said that AMD X670E and X670 chipset based motherboards will go on sale September 27th together with Ryzen 7000 CPUs.B650E and B650 chipset-based boards are expected to go on sale in October.Prices for motherboards with AMD 600-series chipsets will start at $125.AMD also reminded that the Socket AM4 platform has produced over 125 processors, based on five different architectures, and more than 500 different motherboard models were on the market.For the new Socket AM5 platform, AMD promises support until at least 2025.
AMD company besides previously announced X670, X670E and B650 chipsets is also going to present B650E chipset for next generation motherboards, designed for upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors.The B650E will feature simultaneous support for PCIe 5.0 for both graphics cards and SSDs.The senior X670E chipset has the same feature.On the other hand, common X670 and B650 chipsets will be able to support PCIe 5.0 for SSD or graphics card. Unlike the AMD X670E chipset, which consists of two chipsets, the B650E chipset will only include one base chip.This means the number of available PCIe lanes will be lower.Note that AMD has not previously reported on B650E preparations - it was only known from leaks.On the night of August 29 to 30 AMD is going to officially unveil Ryzen 7000 processors and possibly a new Socket AM5 platform.If we believe the rumors, in September boards on the junior chipset AMD B650 are not expected to go on sale.They are expected to appear later.
AMD will unveil Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards on the latest RDNA 3 architecture graphics processors tonight. The start of the presentation,...
