While the Computex conference, where we expect a formal announcement for AMD’s Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series CPUs, is still a few weeks away, today we got our first teaser of an X570-based motherboard, the MEG ACE from MSI. Though few details were shared, the MSI Gaming Twitter account posted a cryptic video of the board with an easter egg or two hinting at what the new generation board is all about.
The short video shows the X570 MEG Ace in the background hidden in the shadows with only select portions of the board visible (I/O shroud, chipset and VRM heatsink). The video has the numbers 5, 6, and 7 displayed with the Wi-Fi symbol above the 6 representing support for the new Wi-Fi 6 standard. In addition to this image, there is another that looks like screen tearing on steroids with the number 3000 written, which presumably represents Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Outside of that, no other details were listed.
That said, we’ve also found what appears to be a listing from a Russian Regulatory agency that registers new products/product names naming other X570 based boards as well. The filing identifies not only the MEG X570 Ace MSI teased, but the MEG X570 Godlike is listed on the document as well. Surely their X570 lineup will be fleshed out over the coming weeks along with all the other board partners, but this is what we have for now.
Pricing was not mentioned on the unreleased MSI X570 boards, but we do know from previous generations the MEG Ace and Godlike motherboards sit towards the high-end of the product stack. We expect to see the MEG X570 Ace in all its glory as well as other X570 boards unveiled in the coming days and while we're at Computex. Get ready, it looks like Ryzen 3000 is almost here.
