A few days ago, at the AMD Meet The Expert event various AIB partners showcased their next gen AM5 socket supported motherboards. These new motherboards will support DDR5 RAM along with AMD’s Zen4 CPUs. You can also use pre-Zen4 coolers with these motherboards, for those who are curious.
Looks beautiful, doesn’t it? This is the second best offering from Gigabyte for its X670E lineup. The motherboard features a 16+2+2 power phase along with 4 DDR5 slots. For storage, support up to 4 M.2 SSDs is provided, where two utilize the PCIe Gen5 x4 and the other two utilize the Gen4 x4 interface.
Leaks show that AMD plans to announce its Zen4 lineup on 29th August, 2022. Just 2 weeks later, the press embargo will be lifted allowing for reviewers to benchmark these CPUs. And on the 15th of September, AMD will officially launch their Zen4 CPUs.
- Announcement : 29th September, 8PM ET
- Press embargo : 13th September, 9AM ET
- Official Launch : 15th September, 9AM ET
AMD accidentally tagged a few SKUs from their marketing resource file, namely:
- Ryzen 9 7950X
- Ryzen 9 7900X
- Ryzen 7 7700X
- Ryzen 5 7600X
These CPUs can be taken as AMD’s initial offerings, other R5 and R3 Zen4 based CPUs are set to arrive later this year or possibly in Q1 2023.
