Cards with the AMD X570 chipset are among the best on the market for AMD Ryzen processors. It cannot be denied that the launch of the X570S variant took us by surprise, as it was not mentioned in any roadmap.
What is the AMD X570S chipset?
It looks like AMD is planning to update motherboard chipsets for its processors, starting with its X570, which will receive an update in the form of the X570S. The first motherboard where we will see the new chipset? This will be on the GIGABYTE X570S AORUS Pro AX, which is used in a pre-built computer, presumably from GIGABYTE itself.
We were able to find out about its existence thanks to a leak made by TUM_APISAK, which is one of the pre-built PCs with an AMD Ryzen 5700G Desktop SoC, a CPU remembered will not be sold separately.
The AMD X570 chipset first brought support for PCI Express 4.0 to the desktop world. The new version, X570S, at the moment we do not know all the changes from the X570 chipset. Everything indicates that we would be faced with a more energy efficient version, with a lower TDP and with the ability to support passive cooling., thus enabling quieter computers.
Imminent motherboard renewal?
Lower power consumption coupled with the ability to mount passive cooling doesn’t mean these are changes that justify launching a new motherboard revision with this X570S, but motherboards with the new chipset will always come out. .
What we do know is that GIGABYTE has submitted 8 new AMD X570S chipset boards for Eurasian Economic Commission approval, which appear to be minor updates to their current X570 models. In any case it would not be a launch of a new generation of motherboards, but a revision of the same which would replace the current ones and whose strong point would be to be able to mount a quieter PC with less consumption.
It was also said that the X570S would be the chipset to accompany the launch of Warhol, the 6nm version with slight improvements to Zen 3. Called on the net as Zen 3+ while waiting for AMD to give it a definitive name. . These rumors about the X570S have been completely refuted, and therefore We wouldn’t be facing an update to the X570 chipset designed for Zen 3+.
What it can be is that AMD has internally revamped the X570S from the X570. The results? Nothing for the end user, but it would mean that the distribution of the elements of the motherboard would be different, since they are located according to the location of the chipset and the interfaces of the processor, so they would have a different aesthetic appearance if such is the case. .
