MSI Confirms AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs & X670 Motherboards Launch On 15th September 2

MSI has confirmed what we exclusively said a few days ago, that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and X670 motherboards will launch on September 15.

MSI Officially Confirms September 15 Release Date for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs and X670 Motherboards

One would think that AMD would beat MSI to reveal its product release date, but instead, the latter revealed the launch of the Ryzen 7000 CPU series and its X670 motherboard series at the same time, in mid-September, and both indicating the same day. .

  • Product Announcement: August 29, 2022 at 8:00 pm ET / August 30, 2022 at 2:00 am CET / 8:00 am Eastern Time
  • Press Embargo: September 13, 2022 at 9am ET / 3pm CET / 9pm
  • Sales Embargo: September 15, 2022 at 9am ET / 3pm CET / 9pm

AMD hasn’t officially revealed the dates, but our sources already pointed it out and we even got wind of the August 29th announcement where the red team will reveal full specs and pricing. We’ve already given you the full spec rundown that we also revealed first, exclusively.

MSI plans to release four X670 motherboards initially for the AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU family which would include MEG X670E GODLIKE, MEG X670E Ace, MPG X670E Carbon WiFI, and PRO X670E-P WIFI. We will receive more information such as pricing, overclocking, and DDR5 memory support closer to launch. The company will also have a range of B650 chipset motherboards to show off, but their launch isn’t planned until a little later.

Yesterday at AMD’s “Meet The Experts” live stream, MSI gave a little more information about its X670E motherboards. MSI is pushing things to the limit with high-end heatsink designs such as screwless M.2 Shield Frozr technology, M.2 XPANDER-Z Gen 5 Dual AIC (supports up to two PCIe Gen 5.0 x4 SSDs) in one active cooling solution), 60W USB Type-C Power Delivery and more robust power delivery for each motherboard level. We also get a better look at the MEG X670E GODLIKE, which looks as amazing as ever with its massively saturated PCB layout and tons of IO to work with. More details on the MSI lineup here.
