At Computex 2022, the first motherboard manufacturers are showing their first motherboards with the new socket AM5 and the X670(E) chipset for the new desktop processors of the AMD Ryzen 7000 series aka Raphael, via which AMD itself will be talking about in a keynote under the motto “Innovations for PC and Notebook”.
While the manufacturer itself will be giving further details on the Zen- 4 CPUs with an integrated RDNA-2 GPU, the first motherboard manufacturers will have their first motherboards for the new AM5 platform with them and will probably share initial information about the motherboards with the X670, B650 and probably also the X670E chipset.
Gigabyte sets to X670
As the website Wccftech first reported, Gigabyte will present several motherboards for Ryzen 7000 at Computex 2022 and will initially only use the regular X670 chipset.

During the keynote to follow AMD's May 23rd event, Gigabyte wants a first look at its new motherboards for the upcoming AM5 platform enable.
ASRock already has the X670E on sale
ASRock had already briefly published a video presenting its first two AM5 motherboards on the company's official YouTube account, but took it offline again or made it private.
