MSI is preparing a motherboard called MAG B660M Mortar Max WiFi DDR4 and will have a number of features available in some models based on the Z690 chipset.
The board will be equipped with an external clock generator Renesas RC26008, which allows you to change the frequency of the BCLK bus – such a board will allow you to overclock “non-overclockable” Intel Alder Lake processors. The second important feature is support for the PCIe 5.0 bus, which is not in the B660 chipset itself. Finally, the name indicates that the motherboard is designed for available DDR4 memory.
Thus, by purchasing a MAG B660M Mortar Max WiFi DDR4 and installing a processor without the K index and cheap DDR4 memory, the user will be able to significantly overclock the processor and use the full speed of PCIe 5.0. When the novelty will be released, not reported. Recall that the price of a regular MSI MAG B660M Mortar WiFi DDR4 is $160, we can assume that the Max version will cost about $200.
