AORUS B650E Tachyon

Gigabyte’s premium board for overclockers.

Just as the rumors have suggested, AORUS team does have a Tachyon motherboard for AMD AM5 CPUs, except it does not use the X670E chipset like most high-end motherboards for Ryzen 7000 series.

The AORUS Tachyon based on B650E chipset is using a single Promontory 21 (PROM21) chipset rather than two on the X670 series. This means that fewer PCIe lanes are available, but at the same time this type of board does not require them anyway.

That’s because Tachyon series are all about extreme overclocking. These boards have powerful VRM design, better memory layout and signaling and special overclocking buttons.

Just like many overclocking boards, this one features only two DDR5 slots. Overclockers tend to use one or two memory modules at the same time, which ensures higher frequency, so quad UDIMM configuration was not important anyway.

SkatterBencher who posted the pictures is known for very detailed overclocking guides for modern CPUs. It looks like we will soon get additional information on how capable the next-gen AMD Tachyon is.

Update: CornerJack from has even more pictures to share:
