    Motherboards with an LGA 1700 processor socket and an Intel Z690 chipset will receive support for two RAM standards at once - DDR5-4800 and DDR4-3200. This contradicts rumors that the older chipset of the new series will only work with DDR5 RAM, while the younger Intel 600 series chipsets will only receive support for DDR4.

    Z690-based boards will receive support for the new DMI 4.0 x8 bus, which provides communication between the processor and system logic. It is also known from the new data that Intel has provided several modes of operation for the memory controller built into the Alder Lake-S chips. In the case of high-speed RAM sticks, it will switch to Gear 2 or Gear 4 mode, i.e. its frequency will decrease by two or four times, respectively.

    In addition to 16 PCI-E 5.0 lanes and four PCI-E 4.0 lanes powered by the LGA 1700 processor itself, the Intel Z690 chipset will provide support for up to 12 PCI-E 4.0 lanes and up to 16 PCI-E 3.0 lanes. It will also support up to four USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 ports, several dozen slower USB ports, six SATA 6 Gb / s and Wi-Fi 6E / 7 wireless adapters.
