AMD 600 series chipsets feature PCIe Gen5 and DDR5 support
AMD X670E is the flagship chip of the new series of motherboards.
The AMD AM5 infrastructure is based on the new LGA 1718 socket which will natively support CPUs up to 170W. The platform is equipped with DDR5 600 and PCIe Gen5 memory for storage and graphics (chipset dependent).
AMD has confirmed that the X670E (Extreme) is designed “for unparalleled power and ultimate overclocking.” It is designed to provide PCIe Gen5 “everywhere”. On the other hand, we have the X670 for “overclockers” with Gen5 storage support and optional graphics. The main platform based on the B650 chipset will only support PCIe Gen5 storage.

600 series motherboards will offer up to 24 PCIe Gen5 graphics and storage slots, up to 14 SuperSpeed USB (TypeC) ports at 20Gbps, and WiFI-E6 support with DBS/Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2. It’s interesting. AMD also revealed that 600-series motherboards will come with up to four HDMI 2.1 outputs and DisplayPort 2. This will come in handy considering Ryzen 7000-series desktops codenamed “Raphael” and with integrated RDNA2 graphics.
AMD SmartAccess Storage
AMD also confirms that the new AM5 platform supports a new technology called SmartAccess Storage. We reveal these plans a few weeks agoAnd we were right in our expectations. This technology adds AMD platform technology and GPU decompression to games that support Microsoft DirectStorage.
