MSI AMD X670(E) Series Motherboards Launched
MSI announced the brand new socket AM5 motherboards which include MEG X670E GODLIKE, MEG X670E ACE, MPG X670E CARBON WIFI, and PRO X670-P WIFI to the brand-new AMD X670 Motherboard product lineup. MSI’s X670 motherboards and AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors are here for a new generation of high-speed and efficient computing. As a world-leading motherboard brand, MSI’s X670 motherboards are designed to provide the best performance for gamers, creators, and users.
With the latest AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors, MSI is ready to push this platform by providing the best performance available for everyone. Using the 5nm architecture and an all-new DDR5 platform, AMD Ryzen™ 7950X processors will have a ~13% IPC uplift with a boost frequency of up to 5.7GHz and an average 29% single thread performance gain compared to the last generation. Let’s take a look at some of the new features from MSI X670 Motherboards.
David McAfee, Corporate Vice President, and General Manager, Client Channel Business Unit, AMD:
“MSI’s new lineup of X670 motherboards are purposefully designed to give users a new generation of high-speed, efficient computing with AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop processors,”. “Optimized for performance-enhancing features like AMD EXPO and Precision Boost Overdrive, together AMD and MSI are pushing the boundaries of performant computing.”
MSI OC Features For AM5 Platform
Performance Switch is a brand-new function within the MSI Click BIOS 5. In addition to the default PBO “Precision Boost Overdrive” and MSI’s overclocking setting, Performance Switch provides 3 presets and a manual choice. This function provides not only to the newcomer but also allows hardcore gamers to unleash the performance of AMD Ryzen 7000™ Series processors.
PBO Enhanced Mode is a continuation of a function that exists in the AM4 platform which optimizes performance for “Precision Boost Overdrive”, providing a set of default values and also a manual value for the users who are more familiar with AMD PBO.
MSI has the OC Engine to help the eCLK ensure stability and performance when overclocking. With the OC Engine that is equipped in the MEG Series, other than just having the ability to adjust the BCLK, but also changing the frequency of PCIe and SATA can also be either synchronously or asynchronously.
In this generation of AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors, AMD has introduced a brand-new feature called AMD EXPO™ technology which stands for “EXtended Profiles for Overclocking”. This AMD EXPO technology allows users to overclock their DDR5 memory with AMD-certified EXPO profiles in the BIOS, as well as XMP memory modules will be supported in the MSI’s AMD motherboard too. It is a much easier way to find an appropriate profile to boost performance with ease.
“Memory Try It” is a well-known function of MSI. For the AM5 platform, this function has fine-tuned the FCLK and adjustments to improve memory performance by up to 18% and reduce latency by about 12%, which is from the new SMT process that allows the memory to maintain high-speed transfer. As shown on MSI MEG X670E ACE Motherboard which can reach memory speeds up to 7000MHz easily without any stability issue.
MSI’s X670 Motherboards come with the AGESA COMBO PI 22.214.171.124 Patch H BIOS to help shorten the very first boot time. The latest AGESA COMBO PI 126.96.36.199 is also available to download for a more refined version.
MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE
The M-Vision dashboard of MEG X670E GODLIKE is back with a bigger display and more features than before. This time around, the M-Vision dashboard is now a separate individual display that has a magnetic back that allows you to place it around or inside your PC case. This allows the M-Vision Dashboard to become a secondary display to provide a lot more details of your system status, System Operation, information, Tools and Hot Key for system tuning, etc. It is just as simple as Plug and Play via a USB Type-C cable.
The MEG X670E GODLIKE also comes with an M.2 XPander-Z Gen5 Dual add-in card to support 2 more M.2 Storage. It has a 50mm Double Ball Bearing Smart Fan Control to regulate and cool the M.2 SSD as efficiently as possible. The XPander-Z Gen5 Dual is designed for PCIe Gen5 in mind, with both slots supporting transfer speed up to PCIe 5.0 x4 128Gb/s and are both compatible with 25110 devices.
Tested with MSI’s SPATIUM PCIe 5.0 SSDs in RAID 0 configuration shown above, the two Gen 5 x4 M.2 SSDs fitted inside perform exceptionally fast and impressive read and write speeds. It reaches up to 19,700 MB/s read speeds and up to 22,900 MB/s write speeds while having the temperature under control as the Double Ball Bearing Smart Fan takes the heat away from the SSDs with its maximum performance.
