Four Premium MSI X570 Motherboards Pictured Up Close

With motherboard vendors going big on the AMD "Valhalla" platform (a combination of 3rd generation Ryzen processor and AMD X570 chipset), we got to see MSI pull out every single high-end motherboard label it has, including MEG GODLIKE and MEG Creation. We sneaked into the MSI booth to take some snaps of the other X570 boards, including a close-up of the MEG X570 Ace, and three other MPG series boards. The MEG X570 Ace is largely carved out of the MEG X570 GODLIKE with a little toning down of the style and features. This is still a formidable board built for serious manual overclocking. We also get the sense that MSI is replacing its "Gaming M7" moniker with MEG Ace in its product stack, as we couldn't find an "X570 Gaming M7" anywhere.

With the MEG GODLIKE and MEG Creation expected to be priced north of $300, the MEG X570 Ace could be priced around the $260-mark. Positioned below it around $200-220, is the MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon. This board offers everything you need to build a super high-end rig where the focus is on gaming. It has decent CPU overclocking chops, too. The onboard audio and networking features are premium, and we expect MSI to deploy 802.11ax Wi-Fi. The new MPG X570 Gaming Edge is a lighter variant of the Gaming Pro Carbon, and is largely based on the same PCB. If you don't care all that much about board design, the MPG Gaming Edge is the way to go, with its roughly-$180 price. The MPG X570 Gaming Plus is a cost-effective product, and has all of the essentials gamers need for this platform. It is expected to go for around $150.

Well there goes my planning to get Zen2.

I don't need a freakin' screaming jetfan on my motherboard...

I think i will end up with Intel after all, which i'm not happy with.

Seriously, if that little fan fails then what?
I think they will not outlast the mobo...

pci-e 4.0 is useless anyway.

Just like Steven from GamerNexus said, the worst part of this launch is the x570 chipset. It wasn´t refined at all. Having fans on every motherboard is a drawback and I wish I could now see the guys attacking me 2 weeks ago, saying there would be motherboards without fans on the high end models. I guess they are gone now.

Man, it's for the PCI-E 4.0. Buy a B450 or X470 mobo, you get the same performance. Can't figure out why you are crying.
