AMD 600-series chipsets feature PCIe Gen5, DDR5 support

AMD X670E is the flagship chipset for the new motherboard series.

AMD AM5 infrastructure is based on a new LGA 1718 socket which will natively support CPUs up to 170W. The 600-series platform is equipped for DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 for storage and graphics (depending on a chipset).

AMD confirmed that X670E (Extreme) is designed for “Unparalleled Capability and Extreme Overclocking”. It is designed to offer PCIe Gen5 ‘everywhere’. On the other hand we have X670 for “Enthusiasts Overclocking” with Gen5 storage support and optionally graphics. The mainstream platform based on B650 chipset will support PCIe Gen5 for storage only.

The 600-series motherboards will offer up to 24 PCIe Gen5 lanes for storage and graphics, up to 14 SuperSpeed USB 20 Gbps (TypeC), WiFI-E6 support with DBS/Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2. Interestingly. AMD also revealed 600-series motherboards will be equipped with up to four HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2 outputs. This will come in handy considering desktop Ryzen 7000 series codenamed “Raphael” feature integrated RDNA2 graphics.

AMD SmartAccess Storage

AMD also confirms its new AM5 platform supports a new technology called SmartAccess Storage. We have revealed those plans a few weeks ago, and we were right in our predictions. This technology adds AMD platform technology and GPU decompression for Microsoft DirectStorage Enabled Games.
