Earlier this week, some details, including the PCB layout of the MSI MEG X670E Godlike leaked, but now MSI has shared some additional details, including a picture of the board. In fact, MSI shared most of the specs of the Godlike board during Computex, but the company didn't release a picture back then. However, now we know the power design, which consists of 24+2 phases and a 105 A power stage. MSI has also created its own screwless M.2 slots, as well as heatsinks, which simply clip in place after the SSD has been installed, although it doesn't appear the Godlike board has screwless heatsinks for more than one of M.2 drives.

Other features include 10 and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet, as well as AMD's RZ616 WiFi 6E module. MSI hasn't gone for USB4 from what we know and nothing was mentioned with regards to USB4 during the MSI presentation. MSI also seems to have skipped video outputs on this board, but it's possible that one of the USB-C ports will support display output, even though that wasn't the case back at Computex. As with many other X670E boards, the Godlike supports 60 W USB PD charging via the front USB-C port.

So do you gain any advantage with one less peripheral input?
Yeah, more ports of a newer type.
Do you miss serial and parallel ports?

No, I just didn't understand the celebration
Well, Abit dumped PS/2 way before its prime, back in 2001 I think...
Not such a great idea, as you couldn't install Windows 98/ME/2000 on those boards, as the USB driver wasn't on the disc...

Really? Seems like there's an awful lot of blank space on that rear I/O to me. I think it's foolish to assume that they're actually replacing it with anything and haven't just removed a feature to save a few cents per board because few will bother complaining, and just as many (such as yourself) will actively defend it. For what it's worth, the PS/2 port on my X570 board was a lifesaver during a project I was working on last year. That board also has the exact same number of USB ports, dual NICs, wi-fi, a full audio section and clear CMOS/BIOS flash buttons, just as this does. Plus the PS/2 port.

Nice gains, bro.

Well, this might've been a bad example, but look at the Asus boards.
And such as myself? I wasn't the one celebrating the loss of PS/2, I simply suggested a reason for its removal.
Also, please never call me bro...

msi showed the tb4 add in card built in on meg ace x670e on computex but they did say the specs was not yet finalized.
now judging by the io shown on the latest event, it seems msi eventually decided to remove tb4 and usb4 at all and rerouted two sets of 5.0x4 lanes to the bottom pcie slot for the gen5 m.2 pcie add in card which has 25110 m.2 slots on pcb.

the leak specs of godlike although states x4 only for the bottom pcie slot. strange.

Most BIOSes provided emulation via x86 SMM so that USB keyboards/mice would work even under MS-DOS. There were options to make USB HID peripheral devices appear as PS/2 in some of them too.
While the PS/2 ports might be less common nowadays the motherboards still contain an ISA-derived (as in the original IBM PC ISA bus) LPC bus to connect slower peripherals like ECs, Super I/O and dedicated TPMs.

The industry found the solution for this long ago: a header on the mobo. Many of the latest boards have an RS-232 interface. Incredibly many if you ask me. But it's just a standardised header, so if you need the port, you spend $4 more for the connector with backplate and cable.

Some older spec ports on the back (without needing to reach for extra breakouts) are still nice though - not talking about serial or even ps2, but usb 2.0 are still very usable and often preferable to connect basic and/or wireless peripherals

Finally no more PS2.
Seems like an odd decision for a flagship board meant for OC’ing? Maybe I’m out of the loop

What seems to be the problem. I am still using a PS/2 keyboard in this day and age. It's a A4Tech G800 found here.
I am also using an Apple Magic wired keyboard alongside it which I have recently gotten. To be frank, I should've gotten a Logitech MX Keys instead, but they are very similar anyways.

You're an anomaly lol. To each their own though.

That is for sure. But I like having a PS2 port, even though I could do without it. As already stated I do have another keyboard which happens to be a USB keyboard - Apple magic keyboard.
