A top-of-the-line, high-end, overclock-ready B650E Tachyon motherboard has finally been revealed by AORUS by a seasoned overclocking geek, Skater publishes.
AORUS B650E Tacyhon is ready to showcase the true potential of DDR5 memory overclocking on the AMD AM5 platform
Several months have passed since AMD introduced its AM5 platform. The B650(E) platform hit store shelves back in October, so it’s been over two months since then. During the pre-launch, AMD partners like Gigabyte announced that they were working on their high-end motherboards with full support for extreme DDR5 overclocking. These boards were missing from the X670(E) lineup but it looks like AORUS decided to take the ingenuity of the B650(E) chipset and use it specifically for the best DDR5 motherboard for overclocking.

During the AM4 generation, we’ve seen many motherboards massively overclock the memory with dual DIMM designs intended for memory overclocking. MSI was among the best of these offerings with the B550 MEG Unify-X series design, but AORUS seems to have topped the AM5 platform with its B650E Tachyon.
Talking about the specifications, the AORUS B650E Tachyon motherboard comes with a very powerful power delivery that is cooled by two large heatsinks, and the AM5 CPU socket is powered by a single (8-Pin EPS) connector. The motherboard has all useful Gen 5.0 M.2 and Gen 5.0 slots. The motherboard has four M.2 slots and two PCIe x16 slots (1x Gen 5 + 1x Gen 4). There are four storage ports (SATA III) and the motherboard has all the basic tuning and overclocking options available. The potentiometers and BIOS switches are located next to the right angle connector (24-pin EPS) while the BCLK and DEBUG LED set switches are located below the PCH.
Will GIGABYTE have a Tachyon motherboard for the AM5?
Gigabyte’s Sofos Oikonomou stated that there will indeed be a Tachyon motherboard based on the AM5 socket but it will be based on a different chipset, not the X670, so we’ll likely look at the B650(E) product.

The AORUS B650E Tachyon certainly looks like a suitable motherboard for DDR5 memory overclocking and it’ll be interesting to see how the AM5 platform stacks up against the Intel LGA 1700/1800 platform pushing memory speeds beyond 10Gb/s. There are no pricing or launch details yet, but we can expect the motherboard to hit retail in Q1 2020.
