The PCB for ASUS’ PRIME X670-P WIFI motherboard, which features a dual-chipset design for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs, has also been leaked ahead of the launch. The ASUS PRIME X670-P WIFI motherboard’s PCB diagram is very intriguing because it shows many elements of the motherboard.
The AM5 ‘LGA 1718’ socket is visible in the center, surrounded by at least a 14 Phase VRM powered by an 8+4 pin power connector layout. AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPU family will now have full support. It also has four DDR5 DIMM slots that can support up to 128 GB of memory, though the speeds are yet unclear.
According to prior speculations, the AMD X670 and X670E motherboards will use chiplets, but it appears that there are two different chipsets connected by a common I/O hub. These two chipsets provide the same I/O as a single B650 chipset, but when used together, the I/O is increased by 2x. We should expect both PCIe Gen 5.0 and PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes because this is an X670 motherboard and not an X670E part. A single PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, two PCIe x4 slots, and one PCIe x1 slot are available.
Three M.2 connections and six SATA III ports are available for storage in the ASUS PRIME X670-P WIFI motherboard
Aside from that, the motherboard appears to have good audio and back-panel I/O, however, we can’t say how many USB/TB ports the ASUS PRIME X670-P WIFI board will have just yet. Momomo US also disclosed that ASUS was working on two ProART series motherboards using the X670E and B650 chipsets, in addition to the ASUS PRIME series motherboards.
- ProArt X670E-CREATOR WIFI
- ProArt B650-CREATOR
We can expect a huge array of AMD Ryzen 7000 AM5 motherboards based on the X670E, X670, and B650 chipsets at Computex 2022 next week, as Gigabyte and ASRock have already leaked their lineup.
