AMD should hopefully have an interesting keynote during Computex next week and it now looks like the company is getting ready to announce no less than three chipsets for its upcoming AM5 platform at the show. If the new chipsets will be part of the actual keynote or not, we’re not certain, but we’ve been told by industry sources that AMD will offer three different chipsets for the AM5 platform at launch. The three new chipsets will be X670E, X670 and B650, unless there are some last minute changes. The names have been circulating on Twitter for at least a few weeks, but without any kind of reliable verification and the X670E popped up out of nowhere a week or so ago.

We can now tell you that the X670E will be a special SKU where the E stands for Extreme. Based on the information we’ve managed to source, it doesn’t seem to differ from the X670 chipset in terms of functionality or features. However, all X670E motherboards must offer PCIe 5.0 connectivity to both the GPU and the M.2 NVMe SSD slot or possibly slots, whereas X670 based motherboards can use PCIe 4.0 instead, if the motherboard makers decide to make a more cost efficient motherboard. The rumour of a dual-chipset setup are also true, with X670E and X670 boards featuring two Promontory 21 chipsets and the B650 boards featuring a single Promontory 21 chipset. Unfortunately we don’t have any details on what kind of connectivity will be on offer, but AMD’s chipset partner is as far as we know, still ASMedia.
