AMD has actually created only one chipset for Zen 4, not three

MSI has been all over the place since AMD revealed the Zen 4 Ryzen 7000-series (opens in new tab) processor generation, showing off its own engineering samples, and unreleased X670 motherboards. Initial videos highlighting the insertion method of the new Intel-like LGA processors have been taken down, but undeterred MSI has now lifted the lid on the chipsets being used for AM5 motherboards.

The interesting thing to note is that the rumors suggesting dual-chip designs for the top-end AMD chipsets have now been confirmed since the Computex unveiling. But, contrary to what was originally being ground down by the rumor mill, these aren’t single package chiplet designs, but two discrete chipset chips sat beneath the passive heatsinks of the X670 and X670E motherboards.
