EVGA X670E Classified Motherboard

EVGA has created a high-end AMD X670E chipset motherboard for the Socket AM5 platform, but unfortunately, it never made it to the mass market. The board was intended to be part of the Classified series and sold as the X670E Classified. Prototypes of this motherboard were auctioned off for over $1,300 each. The E-ATX form-factor board features a robust CPU VRM, along with various features that cater to overclockers, such as DDR5 memory slots positioned on the top, side-facing I/O ports (including power inputs), and a clean layout that accommodates extreme cooling solutions.

Hardware enthusiast Jiacheng Liu had four of these prototypes, all of which were auctioned. However, these prototypes lack heatsinks for the CPU VRM, chipset, and M.2 Gen 5 NVMe slots, which do not interfere with the Gen 5 x16 PEG slot. Additionally, the boards do not have EVGA support and only come with an initial BIOS that supports Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" processors, not the upcoming Ryzen 9000 "Zen 5." It is uncertain if they can even support the Ryzen 7000X3D series, which may have contributed to the limited auction prices. Enthusiasts may attempt to modify the BIOS to accommodate the latest AGESA updates.
