A recent leak on Twitter confirmed the rumors of a duo chipset motherboard for the AMD Zen 4 devices. The user @9550pro posted two images; one with a circuit layout and the other with the words “PRIME X670-P WIFI.1.03TX“, indicating the design of the mentioned model.
The circuit design clearly shows two chipsets, as highlighted.
The image features the PCB design of the ASUS X670-P Prime WiFi motherboard.
The exact spots of the AM5 LGA1718 socket, four DIMM DDR5 memory slots, M.2 Gen5 interface, and one PCI-e 5. x16 interface can also be seen.
Keep in mind that this is only a rumor. As suggested by some, the chips might be Promontory chips from ASMedia, AMD’s usual partner. The specific advantages of having two chipsets are unknown, but this seems like an exciting upgrade for the Zen 4 processors.
