Meet God! MSI’s MEG X670E GODLIKE Juggernaut Motherboard Unveiled

Last year we gave you an exclusive look at MSI’s MEG Z690 GODLIKE PCB and today, we have a new GODLIKE motherboard to talk about, one designed to push AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPU to its limits, meeting the MEG X670E GODLIKE!

Illustrated and detailed, MSI’s Truly LIKE MEG X670E GODLIKE PCB motherboard is crazy-designed and packed with tons of I/O capabilities for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs.

Personally, I love enthusiast motherboards, they cost insane but also showcase the full potential of what each CPU platform has to offer. Every motherboard manufacturer has a crazy design built for top-tier enthusiasts. For MSI, it’s GODLIKE mainboards. As such, today we’ll be looking at the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE, the first flagship design for AMD’s Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop CPUs.

Starting with the details, first, we have to talk about the size of this beast of a motherboard. The MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE will measure 305mm x 288mm. This is a bit smaller than the MEG Z690 GODLIKE but it will definitely be one of the biggest and worst motherboards out there, and every other manufacturer will keep a close eye on it as they try to tackle it with the flagship X670E.

In terms of power delivery, the motherboard appears to feature at least 24 + 2 + 1 phases with 105A MOSFETs. Power is supplied to the CPU through two 8-pin headers, a 24-pin ATX header for the motherboard, a 6-pin power connector (bottom) for the PCIe lanes, and a 6-pin PD power connector (next to the 24-pin ATX connector) to provide 60W PD charging for the 20Gbps Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2x2 front connector. You can also note that the dual X670E PCH takes up a lot of space on the motherboard.

There are four DDR5 memory slots on the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard which will support capacities up to 128GB and while we don’t know their speeds yet, the original JEDEC speeds for Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs were set to DDR5-5600 so we can expect transfer rates in excess of 6/7 Gbps with EXPO support. The board is powered by dual 8-pin headers located near the DDR5 slots for easy cable management.

There are also places for several OC-specific features on the board such as the Power On/Off and Reset keys at the bottom. Storage options include 8 SATA III ports while expansion slots include three PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 (x16 / x8 / x4 electric) operating in either x16 / x0 / x4 or x8 / x8 / x4 modes.

There are at least four M.2 slots on the MSI MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard which includes one PCIe Gen 5 x4 running off the Raphael CPU lanes, and three Gen 4 x4 slots running from Promontory PCH.

There are two USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectors on the front panel (Type-C with 60W and 20Gb/s power delivery) on the motherboard as well. MSI’s top-of-the-line X670E motherboards will come with an all-new M.2 SSD mounting design as part of “M.2 Shield Frozr” technology, and there will also be magnetic locks next to the M.2 ports. Magnetic locks will provide connection to the RGB LEDs on the Shield Frozr heatsinks for the M.2_2, M.2_3 and M.2_4 ports. There are also plenty of fans (+pump), RGB, and external connectors on the motherboard.

One thing is for sure, while this is just a PCB, we can already tell how powerful this board is. We only saw a glimpse of MSI’s final design recently, so we can’t wait for them to showcase the full MEG X670E GODLIKE motherboard in the coming months as we get closer to the launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs.
