Meet the MSI B650M Mortar WIFI motherboard. It’s a mid-tier product (from a series we had a chance to check, for example, with Intel’s B660 chipset) with a mid-tier AM5 chipset. It’s a very similar motherboard to a B650 Carbon WIFI, which Hilbert checked recently. Mortar is in mATX format (not ATX like Carbon) and has not four, but two M.2 slots, which are not PCIe 5.0 compatible (whereas, in the Carbon, one of four had it).
