ASRock X670E Taichi Motherboard Review

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series processors are here and with them we have new chipsets, which also means new motherboards! The biggest upgrades you’re going to see from the previous generation (X570) is you finally get DDR5 on an AMD platform and PCI-Express 5.0 for not only your graphics card, but also storage. ASRock’s flagship series has always been their Taichi series, and for the Ryzen 7000 series, today we’ll be looking at the X670E Taichi. This board is quite decked out with features like a 24 + 2 + 1 power phase design, dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports, four M.2 slots, WiFi 6E and of course support for PCI-Express 5.0 and DDR5 as I mentioned. . This is our first X670E motherboard that we’re going to look at, so we’re really excited, let’s get started!

Special thanks to ASRock for providing the X670E Taichi motherboard to review.
