ASUS has announced the ROG Strix X670E-E and TUF X670E-Plus motherboards for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 processors. Both new products are based on the older AMD X670E chipset. Previously, the manufacturer showed the flagship models ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme and ROG Crosshair X670E Hero.
ASUS does not yet provide full information about the new products. It is likely that details on this can be found closer to the announcement of the Ryzen 7000 processors, which will take place on August 29th.
The ROG Strix X670E-E model is based on a 20-phase processor power subsystem (VRM) with an 18 + 2 scheme. Each phase is designed for a current of 110 A. This is enough for the stable operation of any processor of the future Ryzen 7000 series, not only taking into account the default settings, but also taking into account additional manual overclocking. Support for DDR5 RAM, two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and support for PCIe 5.0 NVMe solid state drives are announced for the novelty.
It also indicates the presence of a 2.5 Gigabit network adapter, a front USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 port, quick update and BIOS reset capabilities. The board is equipped with a PCIe slot Q-Release mechanism for easy removal of the graphics card from the top PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and screwless M.2 SSD brackets. The connector panel cover of ROG Strix X670E-E is decorated with a backlit acrylic window.
The manufacturer specifies a PCIe 5.0 x16, PCIe 4.0 x16 and PCIe x4 slot for the WiFi model TUF Gaming X670E-Plus. It also indicates the presence of four slots for M.2 format solid-state NVMe drives. One of them supports the PCIe 5.0 standard, the other two work on PCIe 4.0, and the last one works on PCIe 3.0 mode. The board’s appearance maintains the “military” design concept inherent in the TUF series products.
Like the model above, the TUF Gaming X670E-Plus WiFi supports DDR5 memory. Unfortunately, the company does not specify how high-speed modules can work with it.
