Final Up to date:
AMD just lately held a keynote at Computex outlining a few of the options of its AM5 socket and Zen 4 CPUs. Many of the info we noticed at Computex round AM5 was very obscure as a result of, in spite of everything, it was imagined to be extra of a showcase than a full-on reveal. No info across the twin X670 chipset design, nonetheless.
MSI has just lately been very free with info regarding AMD applied sciences. MSI already confirmed AMD EXPO know-how (Prolonged Profiles for Overclocking) and launched an set up video, detailing the right way to set up considered one of AMD’s Zen 4 engineering samples into an AM5 motherboard. Sadly, most of this info has been redacted upon AMD’s request.
However MSI is at it once more, revealing info it in all probability shouldn’t.

Throughout its insider stream, MSI confirmed the AMD X670 chipset design with out the warmth spreader put in. That is the primary time we acquired to see the twin chipset design – AMD confirmed this design, however by no means confirmed it off themselves.
The AM5 platform is constructed upon the LGA (Land Grid Array) socket structure, extra particularly LGA 1718. AMD has moved over from the PGA configuration of AM4 to LGA for AM5 as a result of LGA helps extra connectivity, it’s much less probably you’ll harm the CPU on set up, and it’s cheaper to fabricate – simply to call just a few causes.
The brand new AM5 motherboards will host Zen 4 CPUs with as much as 170W PPT (socket energy). The primary technology of Zen 4 CPUs will function help for DDR5 reminiscence in addition to PCIe Gen 5. Each the X670E and X670 will provide as much as 24 PCIe Gen 5 lanes for GPU gadgets and storage.
Regardless of the twin chipset design, neither chipset wants any type of lively cooling. AMD confirmed the dearth of want for lively cooling a month or so in the past, so this didn’t come as a shock to us. The passively cooled chips are a testomony to simply how environment friendly AMD’s new know-how is.
AMD is ready to disclose extra info round AM5 and Zen 4 across the begin of summer time 2022. There, we are going to see extra details about new chipsets, together with the model new B650 chipset. The B650 will function one chipset, while the twin X670 chipset design w
