MSI has it on its most important blog Differences between X570 and X670(E) motherboards listed. In addition to the known upgrades for the CPU socket, DDR slots, and PCIe version, the build quality of the boards also improves significantly on MSI.
X670E motherboards have up to 10 PCB layers, 4 more than we’ve seen on MSI’s X570S boards. In addition, the VRMs get an upgrade: the most expensive X670E board, the MEG X670E GODLIKE, has a VRM with 24 + 2 + 1 phase (105A). VRM heatsinks have also been improved: new undulating fin and cross-linked heatpipe designs should be more efficient.
The main differences between the X570 and X670E.
Most of us know the difference in components by now: we go from AM4 to AM5 socket, from DDR4 memory to DDR5 memory and pcie 5.0 is supported with the X670E chipset for both the SSD and the video card.
It all sounds good, but you have to put a lot of effort into it. MSI revealed pricing for its X670 motherboards earlier this week, and the aforementioned MEG X670E GODLIKE model will cost $1,300. You could build a great gaming PC out of that a few years ago.
