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.

    I also owned a Z77 Extreme 4 at one time, and the X570 version is probably the closest to perfect that I've seen offered so far. If only it had a couple of extra USB ports on the back panel, it'd be a shoe-in. Reply

    Hoping for price cuts on Intel cpus because no matter how good Ryzen is, these boards are way too expensive. Reply

    Then get X470 or B450 boards. Or even X370 or B350 boards, you are in no way forced to use these latest mobos. Reply

    Good advice, and you get lower system power consumption as a bonus. The main reason to go with the more expensive x570 boards is PCIE 4.0, and you're not going to get that if you switch to Intel. Reply

    Asrock has the x570 pro 4 listed on their web site with an MSRP of $154.00 I've used their Pro X boards in a number of builds and always had good results with them. They don't seem to be available at retail yet (at least anywhere I've seen) . On the other hand, I'm not one of those to go out and buy any product on the first day. Street prices on both motherboards and CPU's are likely to drop quickly and...even if I go out and buy a new CPU, I don't have anything else that could take advantage of the x570 chipset for the time being, so my x470 is probably good to go for quite some time to come anyway.

    Ryzen 3000 series CPU prices are going to be over MSRP for at least 3 months. Reply

    I don't know where you live, but here in the USA, the CPUs are all at the official prices, unless you go to a third party seller who is trying to scam money out of people. Note that many online stores show products from third parties in addition to what they sell themselves, so when you see CPU prices above MSRP, those are the third party scammers.

    Newegg is getting daily deliveries by the look of it, and I expect the other large online sources are as well. The sales volumes are high on these chips, and some people just take advantage of it and charge more money.

    On Amazon.es and PCComponentes.com the EXACT SAME price, set up by bots:
    AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 548,90€
    AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 361,80 €

    The only reason to buy x570 is for PCIe 4.0. If you don't need it, get a B450 board at 75$ Will work for every Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

    I am even thinking about using my X370 MSI Gaming Pro Carbon for my 3950x.

  • npz - Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - link

    3950x likely won't work due power requirements. All the X570 boards preparing for it are implementing beefier power supplies/extra phases for VRM specifically to support it and any potential overclocking. It may have a higher platform power limit for PBO too Reply
