MSI MAG B650 Motherboard with Ryzen 7000 CPU at 1.5V VCore Spotted

We come across an interesting insight into the MSI MAG B650 motherboard; a recent screenshot of the motherboard shows the AMD engineering example running. This gives us a hint that AMD plans to develop a B650 mid-range motherboard series. This won’t last long as AMD has already introduced the high-end X670 (or X690) series.

Some of you may confuse the B650 with Intel’s B660 series. These two are different. The Intel B660 series are mid-range LGA1700 motherboards designed specifically for Alder Lake and Raptor Lake processors.

AMD’s B650, on the other hand, is very different; they will be part of the new AM5 platform designed for the Ryzen 7000 processors, codenamed “Raphael”. This indicates very well that the screenshot of the technical example shows a Zen4 processor.

What caught our attention is the high VCore of 1,532V. This could very well be a bug, but it’s also a chance that someone already needs to test the overclocking capabilities of the next-generation series. However, it is not wise to rely on this voltage as these are very early examples in terms of clocking and overclocking capabilities.

These new processors will be AMD’s first desktop S-series with built-in Radeon graphics. The 5nm processors come with 16 Zen4 cores and have new DDR5 memory. The series is expected to launch at the end of this year.
