ASRock is planning to release at least one more motherboard inspired by Sega’s mascot, according to new images that have surfaced online for the B760M PG SONIC, an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog motherboard for 13th Gen Intel Core processors that is built upon Intel’s more mainstream, soon-to-be-announced Raptor Lake chipset, a follow-up to the premium Z790 series.

According to the images shared by VideoCardz, the B760M PG Sonic will look similar to the Z790 PG SONIC motherboard that ASRock officially announced in early November, featuring a black PCB that’s complemented by Sonic the Hedgehog graphics and various parts in silver, including the M.2 shields and rear I/O cover.

The latter appears to retain the 16-bit spinning ring that was introduced in the Z790 version of the motherboard.

“ASRock Z790 PG SONIC, an officially licensed motherboard featuring SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog,” reads a description for ASRock’s first Sonic the Hedgehog motherboard for 13th Gen Intel Core processors. “A 16-bit spinning ring emblazons the rear IO cover, while on the rear side you’ll even catch a glimpse of Sonic mid-run. The ASRock motherboard is co-launched to celebrate the release of SEGA’s new Sonic Frontiers game.”

“Designed to bring back epic memories of catching rings in Green Hill Zone, the motherboard echoes Sonic’s lightning speed with its fast blue and silver shards and Sonic silhouette.”

It’s unclear what the B760M PG SONIC might be priced at, but the Z790 PG SONIC can be found at retailers that include Newegg for $249.99.

A pricing list for MSI’s B760 motherboards that hardware leaker chi11eddog shared today suggests that B760 motherboards will range from $209 to $169.

Intel is expected to announce its B760 chipset and non-K 13th Gen Intel Core processors in early 2023.

One of the key differences between the B760 and B660 chipsets lies in their PCIe lanes, according to rumored specifications that show B760 with 10 PCIe 4.0 lanes (vs. 6) and 4 PCie 3.0 lanes (vs. 8).
