The main differences between the X670 vs X570 chipsets are revealed

We return to the fray with new news from AMD and its Ryzen 7000, but this time we will not focus on its processors, but on the chipset that the new AM5 platform will use. Thus, we will have a comparison that will face the current chipset top of the range X570 vs X670 It will hit the market at the end of September.

When AMD released the Zen architecture years ago, it wasn’t expected that it would really go head-to-head with Intel. Well, for years, AMD has been quite behind in performance per core and had to increase the number of cores at a low price to be competitive (like AMD FX). However, the situation has greatly improved and platforms such as AM4 have been with us for 5 long years, supporting a large list of processors. Now is the time to welcome AM5 and see what it can offer us, as it looks like it will be with us for a while.

X670 vs X570 chipset comparison: improvements in all aspects

Comparison AMD X570 Vs X670 Differences Chipsets

As we know, there are still a few weeks left for the Ryzen 7000 and its X670 motherboards to hit the market. Nevertheless, M: YES has published a very interesting article in which he shows us a comparison between the X570 and X670 chipsets, corresponding to the top of the range of each generation. We can start with support for the novel PCIe 5.0so much for SSD as for GPUsomething that Raptor Lake has not been capable of.

Although it is true that we have little information on the M.2 PCIe Gen5 SSD coming to market, these will offer a pretty big performance boost. Sequential reading and writing may not be enough to convince users, but technologies like DirectStorage that should be benefited. On the other hand, PCIe 5.0 for next generation graphics is a great incentive, because these will arrive with a higher performance and consumption than the current generation.

We will also have support for DDR5 memory, although we will lose support for DDR4, seeing that AMD only bets only on the most modern. Regarding power phases of the base plates, these will be increased from 16+2 with 90A of the X570 chipset vs. 24+2 with 105A of the X670, to be able to cope with the high power requirements. Thus, the PCB of these will go from offering 6 layers to 10 layers for the same argument. In addition, they will have a new desEsports Extraswith crossed heat pipes that promise a better cooling.

USB-C PD with up to 60W charging and Display Port 1.4 HBR3 added

In addition to PCIe interface improvements, a better VRM or motherboards with improved cooling, we have the addition of a USB-C port a bit special. And it is that, this will offer up to 60W power delivery via PowerDelivery (P.S.), something that we have already seen in numerous laptop and mobile chargers. But beyond this, the fact that it will be compatible with nothing less than Display Port 1.4 HBR3 (High Bit Rate 3).

If we go to its specifications, we find that it supports up to a resolution of 8K to a maximum of 60Hz. This means that we can connect high resolution monitors or other devices via USB-C and power them without problems thanks to this Display Port and the 60W.
