Biostar unveiled the X670E Valkyrie motherboard for the upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors. The company talked about it in general earlier this month when AMD gathered all of its partners to show their solutions for the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series of processors.
Since the last presentation, Biostar seems to have finalized the design of its new product. The board now features ARGB lighting elements in the form of acrylic inserts on the heatsinks of the VRM power subsystem and the AMD X670E chipset.
The board received a 22-phase power supply subsystem. Each phase is rated for 105A. The X670E Valkyrie is also equipped with two 8-pin EPS connectors for CPU power and one 24-pin ATX power connector.
The novelty received four DDR5 connectors with support for up to 128GB of RAM. Curiously, Biostar was the first among motherboard manufacturers to talk about the speed of RAM supported by Ryzen 7000 processors.For the X670E Valkyrie, support for DDR5 modules with an effective frequency of 4800-6000 MHz and higher is announced announced. All memory frequencies above the base are achieved through overclocking profiles.
The board also has two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots (in x16/ or x8/x8 mode), one PCIe 4.0 x16 slot (in x4 mode), a pair of M.2 slots for installing PCIe 5.0 NVMe drives, an additional M.2 header for Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module and another M.2 for PCIe 4.0 SSD.
For the novelty, six SATA III ports, eleven USB 3.2 Gen2 ports (9 external on the back and 2 internal for the broadcast panel), two USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C (one front, one rear), four USB 2.0, one each HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 and a 2.5 Gigabit network adapter controlled by an Intel i225 controller. The Realtek ALC1220 codec is responsible for supporting 7.1 channel audio.
The Biostar X670E Valkyrie board is expected to go on sale in September, coinciding with the release of the Ryzen 7000 processors.
