MSI MAG X570S TOMAHAWK MAX WIFI – Laurent’s Choice

We are dealing with 14 60 amps Powers stages, 12 of which are CPU centric. We have 12 direct phases, delivering a whooping 720 AMPs to our CPU.
Obviously more than you’ll ever need to run and severely overclock any processors featured in the Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series.But most importantly and identical configuration to its aging MAG X570 TOMAHAWK which is not a bad thing since it was the best performing mid-budget gamer of its class.

Also , compared to the predecessor model “MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI” , the power supply circuit has changed from 10 + 2 phase to 14 + 2 phase , and the board is also server grade with a server grade 4-layer PCB to 2 ounce thick copper foil layer. Upgrade to 6-layer PCB . As a result, heat generation can be suppressed even under high load, and the stability of the system is also improved.

ASRock X570S PG Riptide – AnandTech

The ASRock X570S PG Riptide represents a new entry in ASRock’s gaming-themed Phantom Gaming series, but at the more entry to a mid-level market segment, which for an X570 board might be most people’s mid-range or even high-end for cost. Designed primarily for AMD’s latest Ryzen 5000 processors, it is also compatible with both the Ryzen 3000 and 2000 series of desktop processors, but it also supports Ryzen 5000, 4000, and 3000 APUs. It also has four memory slots with support for fast DDR4-5000 memory, with a maximum combined capacity of up to 128 GB.

Its purpose is different with a perfectly mastered balance sheet to offer ultra-fast storage and multiple connectivity options. The goal is to have an “optimized” environment for creation. This can relate to video (DisplayPort input), photography, audio, 3D creation, rendering, architecture etc. In view of our tests, this mission is fulfilled with great services in this segment (3D rendering, audio encoding, video encoding). In other areas, the results are average with sometimes a slight decline compared to the X570S PG Riptide from ASRock (memory bandwidth, memory latency, gaming). We also noticed a little more energy consumption at rest.
