Rumour has is that Chinese motherboard manufacturer, Colorful is currently working on AMD 400-series AM4 motherboards. These motherboards are expected to be unveiled soon after this year’s Computex event in June. It’s said that Colorful’s upcoming motherboards will support AMD’s Ryzen “Pinnacle Ridge” CPUs.
In addition to Pinnacle Ridge compatibility, Colorful’s 400-series motherboards will also, of course, support Ryzen APUs (Raven Ridge) and existing CPUs (Summit Ridge), all thanks to AMD’s commitment to its AM4 socket. What makes this rumour even more interesting is the fact that the 400-series AM4 mainboards will be Colorful’s first non-Intel motherboards.
One notable feature that may come with Colorful’s upcoming 400-series AM4 motherboards is that they may be equipped with multiple 32Gbps NVMe connectors. That aside, AMD is expected to unveil its Pinnacle Ridge (second gen Ryzen) processors and 400-series chipset in the second quarter of 2018.
Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see the improvements and new features that’ll come with AMD’s 400-series chipset. We do, of course, expect other motherboard manufacturers to debut their products sometime after AMD makes Pinnacle Ridge processors official. Until then, we do urge our dear readers to take this rumour with a grain of salt, for now.
