ASUS reveals its AM5 X670E Prime and Creator motherboard lineups
ASUS has revealed a new set of X670E AM5 motherboards, this time highlighting their Creator and Prime series products. With AMD's new AM5 socket, these new motherboards will support AMD's next-generation Ryzen 7000 series processors, which promise users higher core clock speeds, new 5nm Zen 4 cores, and an expanded feature set.
With their new X670E-Creator WIFI motherboard, ASUS is offering their users two PCIe 5.0 16x slots, four M.2 SSD slots (two of which are PCIe 5.0), and a pair of USB4 ports on the motherboard's rear I/O panel. This motherboard also ships with WIFI 6E support, a 2.5Gb ethernet port, a Marvell AQtion 10 Gb Ethernet port, and support for cases with that can support 60-watt USB Type-C charging.
ASUS has also revealed their Prime X670E-Pro WIFI, Prime X670-P WIFI and Prime X670-P motherboards, though at this time we only have a picture of ASUS' Prime X670E-Pro WIFI motherboard. All three of these new motherboards support DDR5 memory, three onboard M.2 slots, and a Thunderbolt 4 header.
ASUS' flagship Prime series motherboard, the Prime X670E-Pro WIFI, features a PCIe 5.0 16x slot, a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, support for WIFI 6E, and a 2.5Gb ethernet port. Additionally this motherboard features a pre-mounted I/O shield a PCIe Q-Release button, and an LED diagnostic array (a useful troubleshooting tool).
Below is what ASUS had to say about their latest PRIME and CREATOR series AM5 motherboards in a recent press release.
Press Release - ASUS ProArt X670E-Creator WIFI
The ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi delivers connectivity, high-speed storage options, and ProArt's unique aesthetic. The motherboard's aesthetics showcase a sophisticated style rooted in clean lines, graceful angles, and precise symmetry. Its unobtrusive colors give it a timeless look that's never out of place, with subtle gold accents on the integrated I/O shield and the chipset heatsink.
The ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi delivers massive bandwidth, lightning-quick speeds, and exceptional power efficiency offered by next-generation DDR5 RAM. With data rates 50% faster than previous-generation DDR4 memory, DDR5 unleashes a new tier of performance, and this motherboard offers a host of hardware and firmware optimizations that enable users to overclock capable kits to the absolute limit.
The ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi includes two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots to give users access to the fastest next-gen SSDs and GPUs. The board is also equipped with four onboard M.2 slots, two of which are wired for PCIe 5.0.
The new PCIe 5.0 standard provides the bandwidth for a pair of USB4 ports on the rear I/O panel. Flexible front-panel connectivity is essential for many workflows, so the ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi offers a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 connector with support for Quick Charge 4+. Pairing this motherboard with a case featuring a front-panel USB Type-C port provides convenient access to 60-watt charging.
WiFi 6E unleashes the 6 GHz spectrum in select regions for truly unhindered wireless connections. Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet provides rock-solid and reliable wired networking, while a Marvell AQtion 10 Gb Ethernet port opens up even more options, such as connecting to blazing-fast network-attached storage.
ASUS Prime motherboard range
At the top of the Prime motherboard range sits the Prime X670E-Pro WiFi. The board inclues DDR5 support, a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, support for WiFi 6E, a Realtek 2.5 Gb Ethernet port, and a Thunderbolt 4 header. It includes some DIY-friendly features as well, such as the pre-mounted I/O shield, PCIe Slot Q-Release button and the Q-LED diagnostic array.
Just below the Prime X670E-Pro WiFi sits the Prime X670-P WiFi and Prime X670-P. These boards feature DDR5 support, plus ample room for storage with three onboard M.2 slots. A Thunderbolt 4 header allows users to set up a flexible, high-speed front-panel port in a compatible case. In addition, the Prime X670-P WiFi offers WiFi 6 connectivity.
