ASRock isn’t any stranger to barely extra particular growth playing cards, which is what led to a curious shock when the announcer of Level1Techs has acquired a model of the corporate’s B650 LiveMixer with a card known as the “X670 Xpansion Kit.” It is just not recognized if the corporate plans to produce it or not, but it surely appears to be like like a last product and never a mere prototype.
That card expands the motherboard’s B650 chipset with an X670 chipset, which is used to present further connectivity to the motherboard, not substitute it. It even has a pair of further PCIe 4.0 ×4 slots, which may at all times turn out to be useful for customers with larger storage wants.
The card gives three further USB 3.0 ports, one 10 Gb/s RJ-45, two SATA connectors on the far proper of the PCB, and one USB 3.1 Type-C. growth of M.2 or USB connectors as a result of it principally gives every thing. A separate subject is whether or not ASRock will put it up on the market and at what worth.
