Computex 2022: GIGABYTE showcases 4 AMD X670 chipset motherboards, as well as the awesome Project Stealth “wireless computer”

Following AMD’s announcement of Ryzen 7000 series processors and 600 series chipsets a day before Computex 2022, GIGABYTE also showcased 4 motherboards equipped with X670 chipsets.

Following AMD’s announcement of Ryzen 7000 series processors and 600 series chipsets a day before Computex 2022, GIGABYTE also showcased 4 motherboards equipped with X670 chipsets.

The X670 chipset really has 2 physical chips

Affected by the outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan, GIGABYTE was the only one of the four major domestic board card manufacturers including “AAGM” to participate in the Computex Taipei physical exhibition. Therefore, the author also went to collect materials on the same day.

This time, GIGABYTE exhibited 4 motherboards including X670 Aorus Xtreme, Master, Pro AX designed for e-sports players and X670 Aero D designed for creators. Their common feature is the use of X670 chipset. The design of the AMD 600 series chipset is quite interesting. The B650 is composed of a single chip, while the X670 and X670E are composed of two B650 chips. Although the author asked the manufacturer’s personnel that it is inconvenient to remove the heat sink to shoot the chipset, but we It can still be seen from the back of the motherboard that the chipset does indeed consist of 2 solid dies.

These four motherboards all support dual-channel DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen 5×4 M.2 slots that can be connected to solid-state drives. Among them, the X670 Aorus Xtreme and Master support PCIe Gen 5×16 slots that can be connected to graphics cards.

In the USB function section, all 3 Aorus series hosts provide 2 sets of Type-C terminals that support USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20Gbps) transmission mode, and 1 set of them supports Alternate Mode compatible with DisplayPort 1.4, which can be transmitted through USB cables video signal. If you want to use USB 4 with speeds up to 40Gbps, you need to install an additional expansion card.

What is more special is the X670 Aero D. It has a built-in USB 4 terminal and also supports the VisionLINK technology launched by GIGABYTE. It can simultaneously transmit data, output video and audio through a single USB Type-C cable, and output a maximum power of 60W. To external devices, for example, only one USB Type-C cable is needed to connect the LCD graphics screen, which is more convenient for creators to use.

The X670 Aorus Master can support PCIe Gen 5x16 graphics cards and PCIe Gen 5x4 M.2 SSDs.

The flagship X670 Aorus Xtreme can of course also support PCIe Gen 5x16 graphics cards and PCIe Gen 5x4 M.2 solid state drives.

The X670 Aorus Pro AX only supports PCIe Gen 5x4 M.2 solid state drives.

In addition to supporting PCIe Gen 5x4 M.2 SSDs, the X670 Aero D designed for creators also has a unique VisionLINK.

Although the author could not remove the heat sink of the motherboard at the exhibition site, but from the wiring and components on the back of the X670 Aero D, we can see that the X670 chipset is composed of two solid chips.

The I/O backplane of the X670 Aero D provides up to 10 sets of various USB terminals.

There is also a set of USB Type-C expansion pins with a speed of 20Gbps on the motherboard.

There is a set of 2-port USB 3 expansion pins on the side of the SATA terminal.

The bottom of the motherboard also provides 1 set of 2-port USB 3 and 2 sets of 2-port USB 2.0 expansion pins. The entire motherboard provides a total of 19 sets of various USB terminals.

Project Stealth hides all the lines in the back

GIGABYTE also exhibited the Project Stealth concept computer at Computex this time. By changing the position and direction of the power terminals of the motherboard and graphics card, all the wires are stored in the cable management slot or the back panel, which can not only present a more concise visual experience , can also improve the airflow duct and enhance the heat dissipation effect.

According to the introduction of the on-site personnel, in addition to the Aorus C300G Stealth case, the main members of Project Stealth also initially planned the Z690 Aorus Elite Stealth motherboard and the RTX 3070 Gaming OC 8G Stealth graphics card and other components in the middle price band.

The Z690 Aorus Elite Stealth motherboard has 24Pin ATX power terminals and 1 set of USB 3 expansion pins from the front of the motherboard to the side. The three sets of 4Pin processor power terminals and SATA terminals, various USB expansion pins, and power panel pins The components such as pins and sound panel pins are moved to the back of the motherboard, and the RTX 3070 Gaming OC 8G Stealth graphics card is to move the PCIe power terminal to the bottom of the graphics card.

In this way, with the unique cable management slot and back panel design of the Aorus C300G Stealth case, all cables can be subtly hidden to achieve the visual effect of “wireless computer”, allowing players who like minimalist style to further hide the machine. wiring inside the shell.

GIGABYTE also exhibited the Project Stealth computer at the Taipei International Computer Show. In the picture, except for the two water cooling pipes, do you see any other wires inside the case?

First of all, the 24Pin ATX power terminals are changed from the front of the motherboard to the side, and the three groups of 4Pin processor power terminals are changed to the back of the motherboard, so that the wires can be completely hidden behind the cable management backplane of the chassis.

The processor's water-cooled heatsink is also fairly neat.

The 2 groups of 8Pin PCIe power terminals of the graphics card are also missing.

It turns out that the PCIe power terminal runs below the graphics card, so that the wires can be directly hidden in the cable management backplane.

It can be seen from the schematic diagram that various power terminals have been moved to the side or rear of the motherboard, and components such as SATA terminals, USB expansion pins, power panel pins, and audio panel pins have also been moved to the rear.

Although GIGABYTE only exhibited 4 AMD AM5 platform motherboards this time, as the launch date of the Ryzen 7000 series processors is approaching, more products will definitely appear one after another, and we will also bring more relevant information and reports.
