X570 Power Delivery Specification & Comparison

One of the most talked about aspects of any high-end motherboard lately is the quality of its power delivery system. At a high level, all X570 motherboards have to adhere to a couple of factors, the most important of which is support for the upcoming Ryzen 3950X 16c/32t processor. This means manufacturers needed to work even harder in creating suitable and efficient power delivery systems to ensure full compatibility with the Ryzen 3000 series.

Meanwhile, we're also keeping a look out for any cases where manufacturers may be embellishing their power delivery claims, advertising a board as being more capable than it really is. After some bad history and what has happened in the last two years there, we hope to (and expect) to see less of that with the X570 chipset.

As power delivery is usually one of the most requested items for any of our motherboard content, prior to the launch we reached out to all the motherboard vendors to find out what power delivery systems each of their new X570 boards are equipped with. Below is a table of the official information we have compiled from each of the vendors, with a question mark (?) denotes when we don't have information available.

Please note that this information is self-reported, so until we can review any given X570 board, we're operating on the honor system, trusting vendors to supply honest and upfront information. And we will be checking, and we will be keeping this page up-to-date as more information becomes available.

As we get more information from vendors or reputable sources, we will update the table. As we get more and more X570 boards in for review, we can go deeper into the analysis in each individual review over the upcoming months.

    Well, you do have one choice, the GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Xtreme is fanless.
    I doubt they are that loud as they were in the past though, as it's a variable speed fan now.

    I'm waiting for the next iteration of board for this reason. I'm speculating the next round the chipset will be on 7nm. Reply

    The genious about that chiplet design is that the chipset doesn't actually benefit nearly as much from the shrink, as pure logic or SLC caches: The monolithic guys pay the 7nm overhead (e.g. EUV) for I/O while the geometry of the transistors in the I/O area is mostly determined by the need to power long motherbord or even slot traces.

    So while waiting is never a bad idea when your need clearly isn't overwhelming you, waiting for that shrink could turn out rather long. These days I/O heave chips might never be done in smaller geometries, because of that and because packaging has matured.

    Yeah, I'm having flashbacks over here. Weedy little fans screaming along at 6000RPM, then choking up on a dust bunny or wearing out the bearing.

    Do we know what process they used for the X570? Is it the same 55nm they used for the X470? Here's hoping they shrink it a little for X670.

    no. X470 and below were 55nm (designed by ASMedia on an ancient process to keep everything cheap as dirt), X570 was done in house on 14nm. Ryzen 3's IO die is also 14nm (the much larger Epyc one was done at 12nm). Reply

    Given how little chipsets benefit from process shrinks, some part of me honestly wonders if there's any sense in going even further back to the future and dividing the chipset into a north/southbridge (or some other similar config) so that the heat can at least be spread out, getting rid of the need for a failure-prone mechanical part on your motherboard.
