MSI is working on a new generation of MAG Tomahawk motherboards to host Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake processors. MSI B760 MAG Tomahawk motherboard It is an economical motherboard and it replaces the B660 model which comes in DDR4 and DDR5 models.
MSI B760 MAG Tomahawk motherboard
The power input of the MSI B760 MAG Tomahawk motherboard is provided through a pair of 8-pin ports. The VRMs of this motherboard have not changed compared to the B660 model, and we still see the 1+1+12 phase power supply circuit.
The B760 Tomahawk motherboard is ATX in form and has a pair of PCIe x16 ports. Considering that this motherboard is equipped with a 700 series chipset, both slots in question should support the PCIe 4.0 standard. There are also three M.2 PCIe slots under protective covers. It is true that we do not have the complete specifications of this motherboard, but the words “Lightning Gen5” can be seen on the box, and we can conclude that at least one of these three ports supports the PCIe 5.0 interface.
The DDR4 version of this motherboard has the ability to overclock D4 memories up to 5333 Mb/s in single module mode. Of course, in the 13th generation processors and the new Intel B670 chipset, the focus is more on the speed of DDR5 memories, and therefore, the overclocking potential of DDR4 memories on B760 motherboards is a little different.
MSI B760 MAG Tomahawk motherboard is going to be released in two DDR4 and DDR5 versions and at the same time with Intel’s 13th generation non-K 65W processors. The time we expect to launch these processors is the CES 2023 event. Of course, taking into account the slight changes of this motherboard compared to the B660 model and the fact that MSI B660 motherboards also support 13th generation processors, perhaps the B660 model of this motherboard has a higher purchase value than its B760 model in general!
