MSI’s next-gen X670E Carbon motherboard listed for under $500
MSI MPG x670E, Retail listings in Italy have shown up for some of MSI’s next-gen AMD motherboards. AED Gaming has listed the MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi and the MSI Pro X670-P Wi-Fi, which was leaked on Twitter by momomo us (opens in new tab). We did some research, and identified three different (Italian) stores selling the same boards at roughly the same prices.
MSI MPG x670E Motherboards, Costs
While no one would divulge exact release dates, the MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi and MSI Pro X670-P Wi-Fi could be had for around €620 and €410, respectively. After adjusting for Italy’s value-added tax (currently 22%), the converted prices come to $495 and $320, respectively.
The AMD AM5 motherboard event was held ten days ago, so we had a solid notion of what to expect in terms of product characteristics. Major AMD board partners announced their future products at the event, which will house the first Ryzen 7000-series (Raphael) Zen 4 processors.
There is a dearth of detail in the product descriptions when you go over to the Italian retail listings. You may view some promotional slides for the MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wi-Fi and MSI Pro X670-P Wi-Fi that were created by AMD and MSI and are included above. Keep in mind that the Carbon is aimed at gamers while the Pro is aimed at content makers, and that both are high-end AM5 motherboards. All MSI motherboards support the latest PCI Express 5.0 x4 SSDs and come with an M.2 Shield Frozr cooler, four M.2 slots, four DDR5 DIMM slots, a 2.5GbE connector, and a Wi-Fi 6E adapter.
As a result, we now have an abundance of information about the goods, and the prices in Europe can serve as a rough estimate for the prices in the United States. There has been a recent influx of listings at various retailers, which may suggest a release is near. To be clear, AMD has officially billed the Ryzen 7000 family of processors as “coming Fall,” so we shouldn’t anticipate them (or the accompanying motherboards) until at least the middle to end of September. Our in-depth and frequently updated AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 Specs, Release Date, Benchmarks, and More piece discusses AMD 600 series AM5 motherboards, the Ryzen 7000-series (Raphael), Zen 4 CPUs, and how they may compare to Intel’s impending 13th gen Core processor platform (Raptor Lake).

Q1: Will AMD support DDR5?
AM5 socket motherboards will have PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 RAM capability, as was previously reported by AMD. It’s worth noting that the Ryzen 7000 series, unlike Intel’s Alder Lake series, won’t work with DDR4 RAM sticks, so you’ll need a motherboard that supports the newer DDR5 RAM instead.
Q2: What kind of port will Ryzen 7000 utilise?
The Ryzen 7000 Series is the firm’s next generation of desktop CPUs, and the company just announced that it will be compatible with a new AM5 socket called LGA 1718.
Q3: How about DDR5 memory? Does Ryzen 7000 support it?
The optimal memory speed for the AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” processor is DDR5-6000, which provides the highest performance when matched in frequency (1:1) with the AMD Infinity Fabric. Red Team is joining AMD in the DDR5 memory wars, while the release of AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7000 series “Zen 4” platform is drawing near.
Q4: Is DDR5 an improvement over DDR4?
DDR5 RAM uses less power for the same performance as DDR4 RAM while offering faster base speeds, greater capacity DIMM modules (sometimes called RAM sticks), and other advantages. Some significant benefits of DDR4 remain, though, such as decreased latency and higher stability.
Q5: When using DDR5, will there be a noticeable improvement?
Our frame rates will finally improve as a result of lower latencies and higher frequencies. G. Skill, a maker of memory products, has just unveiled the first DDR5 memory sticks with a latency of less than 30 CAS.
