Asrock announced several new products at CES. There are several X670E mainboards, the Z690 NFT and the two new Intel boards B660 eDP and H610M-ITX eDP.

Just in time for CES, Asrock has announced some new products to complement the company’s existing offering. In addition to some mainboards for AMD’s new AM5 socket, there are also innovations for Intel’s socket 1700 and a mainboard with a WRX80 chipset.

X670E, NFT and eDP

Asrock has announced the X670E Taichi, X670E Steel Legend, X670E Pro RS mainboards and the X670E Taichi Carrara anniversary board for AMD’s new AM5 platform. The Taichi Carrara is an anniversary version in view of Asrock’s 20th anniversary, but the previously known specifications are identical to the X670E Taichi. Among other things, both mainboards rely on a VRM design with 26 phases, one PCI Express 5.0 slot each with 16 and 8 lanes and four M.2 slots.

For the X670E Steel Legend, on the other hand, there should only be 18 and for the X670 Pro RS only 16 phases. In addition, significantly fewer connections are provided here: Both mainboards only have one PCI Express 5.0 slot and only four/six instead of eight SATA connections. Of the four M.2 slots advertised, the X670E Pro RS should only control three with Gen4 and one with Gen3 lanes. For the other boards, Asrock advertises with three Gen4 and one Gen5.

In addition, Asrock has announced the WRX80 Creator, a new mainboard for AMD’s WRX80 socket and three boards for Intel’s LGA1700 socket. The latter is the Z690 PG Riptide NFT Edition, the design of which was apparently created in collaboration with the community.

The two boards B660 eDP and H610M-ITX eDP should be particularly interesting for modders. With these, Asrock wants to install an embedded display port connection for the first time, which can be used to connect LCD panels. The company wants to work with the case manufacturers Cooler Master, In Win, Thermaltake and Silver Stone. They are therefore likely to bring suitable housings with LCD holders onto the market in the future.
