AMD 600 series chipsets feature PCIe Gen5 and DDR5 support
AMD X670E is the main chipset of the new series of motherboards.
The AMD AM5 infrastructure is based on a new LGA 1718 socket that natively supports CPUs up to 170W. The platform is equipped with 600 series DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 memory for storage and graphics (chipset dependent).
AMD has confirmed that the X670E (Extreme) is designed for “unparalleled power and extreme overclocking.” It’s designed to deliver PCIe Gen5 “everywhere”. On the other hand, we have the X670 for the “over-the-top enthusiast” with Gen5 storage support and optional graphics. The main platform based on the B650 chipset will support PCIe Gen5 storage only.

600 Series motherboards will offer up to 24 PCIe Gen5 storage and graphics slots, up to 14 20Gbps SuperSpeed USB (TypeC) ports, and WiFI-E6 support with DBS/Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2. It is interesting. AMD also revealed that 600-series motherboards will be equipped with up to four HDMI 2.1 outputs and DisplayPort 2. This will come in handy considering the Ryzen 7000 series desktops codenamed “Raphael” and featuring integrated RDNA2 graphics.
AMD SmartAccess Storage
AMD also confirms that the new AM5 platform supports a new technology called SmartAccess Storage. We revealed those plans a few weeks agoAnd we were right in our expectations. This technology adds AMD platform technology and GPU decompression for Microsoft DirectStorage-enabled games.
