A HardwareLuxx member discovered a BIOS for the unreleased ASUS TUF Gaming A620M PLUS motherboard. The BIOS was dated October 14th of last year, indicating that this might be an old leak. So far, AMD has not made any official statements regarding a possible budget AM5 series.
According to the data found in the BIOS and confirmed by the AM5 SMU checker tool, the ASUS TUF Gaming A620M PLUS motherboard supports Ryzen 7000 CPUs, but does not support the PCIe Gen5 standard. However, it does support one Gen4x16 slot and two M.2 slots in Gen4x4, which should be sufficient for a budget AMD board.
AMD has not officially announced any plans for the A620 motherboard chipset, but the Ryzen B650/X670 platforms could benefit from a more affordable option. However, it wasn’t until recently, in early March, that the promised $125 motherboards began to appear on the market.
