MSI MPG Carbon with AMD X670E chipset

Hardware leaker chi11eddog provides a first look at the upcoming X670E Carbon series from MSI. 

A complete design overhaul is to be expected from the upcoming MPG Carbon series. The new board which is designed for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs is to say farewell to gaming aesthetics.

One could say that similarly to ASUS ProArt and Gigabyte AERO series, MSI also wanted their piece of cake in the content creation space, where clean aesthetics, capable I/O options and hassle-free usage are to be expected. This might be the reason why MSI opted for the X670E (Extreme) chipset instead of X670.

According to the rumors this would mean PCIe Gen5 support for both the GPU and storage. And even though there are no Gen5 GPUs yet, this combined with AMD’s multi-year commitment to the AM5 platform should give consumers lots of upgradeability options in the future.

Leaker claims that  MSI X670E Carbon is to feature 90A power delivery, while PRO X670-P WIFI (oftentimes considered MSI’s entry-level) would feature 80A power. This likely means 18+2 phase and 14+2 VRM design, as noted by Wccftech.

It is also mentioned that HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 HB3 with 4K 120Hz support are present on these motherboards. Furthermore, they both have 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet and support for WiFi 6E.

Both motherboards, along with MEG GODLIKE and MEG ACE series should be introduced next week, possibly just as quickly as AMD wraps up its Computex 2022 keynote tomorrow.
