The first look at MSI B760 MAG Tomahawk motherboard

MSI B760 is getting a facelift bot no significant changes so the design.  

The company is refreshing its Tomahawk series for 13th Gen Core CPUs. This is a budget motherboard, a successor to B660 series already available with DDR5 and DDR4 support.

The MAG B760 Tomahawk is equipped with dual 8-pin power connectors. The VRM section does not exhibit any significant changes to the B660 model. This means it should still have 12+1+1 power stage design.

MSI’s B760 Tomahawk is a standard ATX form factor design, equipped with dual PCIe x16 slots (given the upgrades to Intel 700 series, those could now be both Gen4). There are also three M.2 PCIe slots hidden under the shields. We do not have the full specs, but the packaging clearly mentions “Lightning Gen5”, which implies that at least one M.2 slot supports PCIe Gen5.

The successor supports DDR4 memory up to 5333 MT/s (overclocked) in 1 DIMM Per Channel mode (single rank). With 13th Gen Core series and new chipsets Intel is now focusing on improving DDR5 memory speeds, therefore, DDR4 OC support on this B760 board should change at this point.

The B760 MAG Tomahawk including its DDR5 and DDR4 variants are set to debut alongside 65W Intel 13th Gen Core non-K series early next year. It is worth noting that the B660 version already supports these processors, so given how similar both boards are, it would make sense to consider the successor first (which costs around $190).
