Another manufacturer that has adopted the X470 chipset in its motherboard ranges for AMD Pinnacle Ridge processors is MSI. A whole family for gaming for the AM4 platform. AMD Ryzen processors of the 2000 series are compatible with previous generation boards, but with the X470 the optimal combination of chipset and processor is achieved.

The highest-end board is the X470 GAMING M7 AC. Then follow the X470 GAMING PRO CARBON and PRO CARBON AC and two more "normal" plates, the msi X470 gaming plus and the X470 GAMING PRO. Among other improvements, we have more power phases to improve cooling with up to 15 phases in total with digital voltage regulation system.
