The wait is over for those who have been on the lookout for AMD’s latest generation of processors and motherboards. The X570 chipset is a premium performance offering that caters to serious gamers and professionals.
AMD’s 400-series chipset brought a host of improvements to performance, with regards to networking, connectivity, peripherals, and other hardware. The X570 chipset is no different.
One by one, let’s go over the new features of this new platform and explore whether you’re due for an upgrade.
WHAT IS AMD BRINGING TO THE NEW X570 PLATFORM?
Like all previous chipset series, the 500-series chipset has been specifically engineered to maximize performance when using the latest 7nm Ryzen processors – granting access to the newest standards in networking, peripheral connectivity, storage, and much more.
Built-in Support for AMD’s CPU: The 1st Series of 7nm Desktop Processors
For those who have been waiting for the 7nm Ryzen processors, this is it. The 500-series chipset supports the newest AMD processors, and they have been designed to extract the most out of them.
PCI-e 4.0 and M.2 Gen 4 Support: Access to Transfer Speeds of Up to 64 GB/s Bandwidth
Doubling the speeds offered by the previous PCI-e 3.0 standard, the 4th generation PCI-e will allow for faster data transfer – ushering in a new era of graphics cards, storage devices, networking devices, and so much more.
Compared to speeds of 15.75 GB/s on PCI-e 3.0/3.1 x16, the PCI-e 4.0 standard will give you access to an incredible data rate of 31.51 GB/s on PCI-e 4.0 x16. Even storage is blazing fast with support for M.2 Gen 4, boasting read speeds of upto 5000Mb/s from our tests.
WHAT ARE THE TOP FEATURES OF MSI X570 MOTHERBOARDS?
FROZR Heatsink with Patented On-board Fan: Over 10% Lower Temps
Better speeds, faster processors, more cores, and supporting a whole new generation of hardware wasn’t easy. Every MSI X570 motherboard features a newly-designed thermal solution – the FROZR Heatsink. An integrated fan in this heatsink helps cool the chipset as well the high-speed M.2 Gen 4 slots more efficiently on the motherboard.
This ensures that each MSI X570 motherboard will remain cool even when running powerful hardware like the new series of CPUs from AMD. It features a patented fan with propeller blade technology, and uses double ball bearings that ensuring a 50000 hours non-stop gaming experience!
Moreover, they come equipped with Zero FROZR technology, an AI tuning system that auto-adjusts fan speeds according to chipset temperatures. It also eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situation. you can also select three pre-set Boost / Balance / Silence mode with your preference. In fact, at low loads, it’ll ensure that the fans don’t spin at all.
With a temperature improvement of over 10%, it’ll give gamers and professionals the headroom they need to push their hardware to the limit without encountering any thermal throttling. Our unique extended heatsink still protects VRM phases from heat, guaranteeing a stable overclocking experience as well.
M.2 Shield FROZR
The M.2 Shield FROZR protects your M.2 devices like NVMe SSDs from heating up. These devices thermal throttle if exposed to heat and can result in sluggish performance. Our X570 motherboards are designed to prevent this from happening even if you’re running powerful CPUs and GPUs that dissipate heat like anything.
IR PWM Digital Power Design: Enhanced Core Boost Performance
International Rectifier is counted among the leaders of the digital power controller industry. The unique IR PWM Digital Power Design and dual power connectors will be a mainstay on all MSI X570 motherboards – equipping you with motherboards that enjoy more efficient power delivery and cooler temperatures.
While better digital power delivery ensures that power is directed where needed with pinpoint accuracy, cooler temperatures will grant you more overclocking headroom than ever before.
Network: Wi-Fi 6 & 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE)
Improvements in the realm of networking are always welcome. With our previous network standards starting to limit our ever-increasing content consumption needs, like 4K streaming, home media servers, and NAS, new standards in both wired and wireless networking is cause for celebration.
The newest Wi-Fi standard, Wi-Fi 6 or 802.11ax, offers better reliability, stability, higher bandwidth, and power efficiency when compared to the last Wi-Fi 5 standard (802.11ac).
Similarly, the 10 GbE standard for wired networking brings full-duplex support for the first time – ensuring that it reduces latency while increasing bandwidth to a whopping 10 Gigabits per second. Our X570 motherboards support both or either one of these new standards and grant you access to faster, next-gen networking to meet your needs.
