++++ The ASRock X670E Taichi Carrara motherboard retails for about 590 Euro (01/2023) and is thus in the upper price segment of AMD AM5 motherboards.
With its X670E chipset, it is currently the spearhead in the AM5 segment. Its M.2 slots with PCIe 5.0 connection, DDR5, USB4 with 40Gb/s simply offer everything you could want in a motherboard. 6GHz WiFi 6E AX, Bluetooth, 2.5Gbit LAN and a high-quality audio section complete the equipment package, as even RGB was not forgotten.
Coupled with an extremely powerful power stage for the CPU, there is no application that the ASRock board is not up to. In addition, all M.2 slots are equipped with coolers. Thus, the X670E Taichi Carrara is thoroughly trimmed for performance and stability. AS Solid AS Rock 😉
For tweakers and enthusiasts, the board offers buttons for power, reset and BIOS flashback as well as a 7-segment Dr. Debug LED display.
Special thanks to ASRock for their support.
* The AMD AM5 motherboard review is based on an AMD Ryzen 5 7600X processor, 2x 16GB Crucial DDR5-4800 memory modules, Lian Li 850W 80+ Gold power supply and the following software configuration: Microsoft Windows 11, Futuremark PCMark10 and 3DMark (available in the Links and Downloads section as download). All benchmark results only offer a comparison among themselves for a rough motherboard performance comparison.
