The new ASRock X670 will take up to over 6 minutes to boot

According to the photos published by a well-known leaker, ASRock's new motherboard based on the X670E chipset will take quite some time to boot, depending on the number and capacity of the DDR5 modules installed.

In fact, it starts from 100 seconds with the insertion of two 16GB modules to 400 seconds (6 minutes and 40 seconds) with four 32GB modules. At the moment, we don't know what the reason behind this decision is, but most likely the motherboard, before starting the system completely, carries out internal tests to verify that the DDR5 memories are fully compatible and stable. It will be interesting to see if the manual explains the long time required for the first boot, but for that we will have to wait a few more weeks.

Is this the Zen 4 running a memory test on first boot?

Or is this an ASRock issue?
