In the images posted by Videocardz, we can see that the ASRock B760 PG Sonic is an mATX form factor design and features the B760 chipset, which should meet the needs of the average user. It can be seen that the motherboard sports a white/silver/blue color scheme with the Sonic logos dotted across the heatsinks. There’s even a Sonic ring sticker on the I/O board while the PCB has lightning traces left by Sonic as he races his way to victory.

The ASRock B760 PG Sonic motherboard carries what appears to be a 14 + 1 + 1 phase VRM design powered by dual 8-pin connectors. There are also four DDR5 DIMM slots that can support capacities up to 128GB and some really fast transfer speeds. The motherboard has one PCIe Gen 5.0 x16 slot, one PCIe Gen 4.0 x1 slot, three M.2 slots, plus an additional M.2 WiFi slot pre-installed with the WiFi card. All three M.2 SSD slots are covered by heatsinks and there are four SATA III ports on the motherboard.

For I/O, ASRock’s B760 PG Sonic comes with a 3-channel HD audio jack, 8 USB ports (2 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.2 Gen 1, and 2 USB 3.2 Gen 2), a 2.5G Ethernet LAN port, a WIFI 6E antenna connector, and a port Display and HDMI outputs.

Intel and AMD will compete in the mainstream segment with the 13th Gen Non-K and Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPU families. Both CPU families will take full advantage of budget motherboards to entice gamers. While AMD has its B650 lineup which is DDR5 only, Intel has both B660 (DDR4 + DDR5) and B760 (DDR4 + DDR5) motherboards coming for gamers and consumers in general.

There are reports that the upcoming lineup will cost up to 10% more than existing B660 designs but that remains to be seen. Intel B760 motherboards and 13th Gen Non-K CPUs will be available in the first week of January, just a week before the launch of the AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPU.
