It has been reported on August 28 that foreign tech publication VideoCardz received documents for the upcoming MSI Z790 motherboard series, including specifications information. The documentation confirms that the Z790 motherboard supports the DDR5-5600 specification by default (4800 MT/s for Alder Lake).
As can be seen from the specifications in the figure below, the MSI MEG Z790 motherboard supports 2DPC 2R DDR5-5600 memory by default and supports up to 1DPC 1R DDR5-6800 memory. In contrast, the MSI MEG Z690 motherboard supports up to DDR5-6666.
In addition, the leaked information shows that the Z790 motherboard supports up to 1DPC 1R of DDR4-5333 memory, while the Z690 motherboard supports up to DDR4-5200.
We recently learned that Intel will launch some 13th-generation Core Raptor Lake CPUs and 700 series chipsets this fall, and Z790 motherboards from major manufacturers will also be launched in the future and we can look forward to it.
In addition, the memory specifications of the X670E motherboard have not been revealed, so it is unclear whether it will be faster than the memory supported by the Z790.
On Twitter @Moore’s Law Is Dead leaked the news that the Intel Z790 motherboard added support for PCIe Gen 5 M.2 SSD, but like AMD’s AM5 platform, not all motherboards will support it, which means that only high-end products support PCIe 5. M.2 SSD and mainstream products will not support PCIe 5, because it requires more PCB layers and driver interfaces, so the cost is higher.Feel free to subscribe to the Inspire2Rise newsletter for more amazing content and news delivered to you on a daily basis!
