A pair of upcoming MSI motherboards was found in the databases of some Italian electronics stores. They are based on the new AMD X670 chipsets and are intended for Ryzen 7000 processors, which are expected to be officially presented on September 15th.
One of the “illuminated” models is the MSI Pro X670-P, which costs between 374 and 426 euros including 22% VAT, depending on the retailer. If we omit the tax and convert to dollars, we get between $316 and $360 at the current exchange rate.
The second board found was the MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi model, based on the older AMD X670E chipset. It is estimated by Italian retailers at between 562 and 640 euros (with VAT) or between 475 and 540 dollars (without VAT).
Both boards are equipped with Wi-Fi 6 modules, 2.5 Gigabit network adapters, and also offer support for the PCIe 5.0 interface and DDR5 RAM. For the MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi model, PCIe 5.0 compatibility is declared not only for NVMe SSDs but also for graphics accelerators. In addition, it offers a more efficient 18+2 processor power supply. The Pro model, in turn, uses a 16-phase VRM power subsystem with a 14+2 scheme. More details about these boards can be found here.
The MPG Carbon Board is not a flagship board. MSI is also preparing to launch MEG Ace X670E and MEG Godlike X670E boards, which will feature more powerful 24- and 26-phase VRM power supply subsystems, faster 10Gbps network adapters, and some other features. The latter includes, for example, an LCD display (for the Godlike model). There is no information on pricing for MEG series boards yet.
