Nobody loves the truth that motherboard costs preserve going up (besides most likely the motherboard makers themselves). However there’s no denying that flagship boards nonetheless pack in essentially the most full and most fascinating assortment of options, together with high-end specs in an try to attract in these on the lookout for the perfect of the perfect to construct their new system round. And with AMD’s new Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs arriving with spectacular efficiency, it’s doubtless that extra individuals will likely be seeking to construct rigs based mostly round AMD’s X670E chipset.

So right here we’ll be taking a look at just a few flagship AMD boards from Asus, Gigabyte and MSI. Just like our Z790 flagship roundup on the Intel aspect, we’ll element three (of 4) flagship motherboards from the B670E platform. We’ll take a look at and focus on the MSI X670E Godlike ($1,299), Asus Crosshair X670E Excessive ($999), and the Gigabyte X670E Aorus Xtreme intimately, and likewise cowl the notably inexpensive (however flagship nonetheless) ASRock X670E Taichi ($479.99). All boards supply a premium look, overkill energy supply, PCIe 5.0 slots, and M.2 sockets. Are any of those definitely worth the worth? Of those, which do you have to select?

The largest distinction between these boards is the value. From the sub-$500 Taichi to the practically $1300 Godlike, there’s an enormous hole from least to most costly. The issue (for the patron) is that apart from simply worth, there isn’t a $700 distinction between them on any entrance, together with efficiency. Whereas some VRMs are higher, even the worst (and I take advantage of that time period loosely) simply handles the Ryzen 9 7950X with out concern. It comes all the way down to what number of and what velocity M.2 sockets you need, for those who’re OK with last-gen flagship class audio or your need the most recent and biggest, and eventually, 40 Gbps USB ports.
