Intel’s Z790 motherboards will feature optional support for PCIe Gen 5 M.2 SSDs, according to the latest claims shared by YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead (MLID), who published a new video on Friday that echoes recent rumors of AMD planning new Ryzen 5000 Series processors with 3D V-Cache technology (e.g., Ryzen 9 5950X3D) and some insights on Intel’s next premium chipset that will be released alongside its 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” processors later this year. MLID is a leaker that has been criticized as being hit or miss by some enthusiasts, but his latest report doesn’t seem too far fetched, considering that AMD has already confirmed that its flagship X670E motherboards will support both PCIe Gen 5 SSDs and graphics cards. Other claims that MLID makes in his latest video is that Intel will unveil its Z790 motherboards at the end of July or late August, with validation to begin in August. These motherboards feature the same LGA 1700 socket that was introduced for the Alder Lake generation.
