SHOCKING AMD Zen 4 CPU roadmap and AM5 motherboard from Gigabyte!
Gigabyte stated its intention to show off AM5 motherboards with support for AMD‘s future Zen 4 CPUs at this year’s Computex, and it was widely believed that AMD would discuss its new-generation Ryzen processors during Dr. Lisa Su’s Computex CEO presentation on Monday morning.
As a result, Dr. Su has been tweeting the following: “Big picture of the future CPU, I’d say it’s set by now.”
According to Gigabyte’s press statement from Computex, the company has a bright future. “AMD Socket AM5 motherboards with sophisticated design, extensive PCIe 5.0 graphics slots, and M.2 Gen5 interface capabilities,” according to the press release.
Pins will be present in that socket, but not on the CPU itself. Every day, AMD becomes more and more like Intel...
We also know that for the first time on AMD platforms, the AM5 socket used on forthcoming X670 motherboards will enable DDR5. One memory manufacturer even stated that it will enable faster native RAM speeds than the Intel Alder Lake platform.
Because Tohsaka Komachi discovered a private YouTube video via Twitter, ASRock has effectively stated that it will be exhibiting X670 motherboards. This includes information on a variety of future Zen 4 motherboards, as well as the NFT version of the Intel Riptide board, which was “co-designed by thousands.”
“ASRock showed a variety of motherboards based on the groundbreaking AMD X670 chipset,” the video description states. The new motherboards come with a slew of new features and technologies, including PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 support, as well as crazy IO and Thunderbolt 4.0 support. The X670 platform has been pushed farther into the high-end desktop segment thanks to increased support.
“On the X670E Taichi, which is ASRock’s most powerful AM5 device, ASRock has gone all out in VRM design, with a total of 26-phase SPS Dr.MOS design.”
AMD’s Computex speech appears to be mostly focused on the desktop, which means we can expect a Zen 4 release, new CPUs, and maybe, just maybe, some RDNA 3 graphics cards.
The keynote will take place at 2 p.m. Taipei time on Monday, May 23rd, which is 2 a.m. ET, 11 p.m. PT (rather confusingly, Sunday, May 22nd), and 7 a.m. UK time.
