Gigabyte and ASUS have unveiled their new A620 line of motherboards. Sales of Ryzen 7000 were directly associated with the cost of AM5 motherboards. There must be a new socket and the more expensive DDR5 memory technology installed, as this is a totally new platform for AMD.
In an effort to give a cheaper alternative to 65W CPUs, AMD introduced Ryzen 7000 non-X series earlier this month. Customers may occasionally find slower CPUs selling for more than their faster ‘X’ equivalents.
Motherboards based on the AMD A620 architecture, which are more affordable, may soon be available. New models have recently been seen at the regulatory office of the Eurasian Economic Commission and on the Goofish selling platform. There were the following motherboards listed:
ASUS TUF GAMING A620M-PLUS D5
GIGABYTE A620M D3H
GIGABYTE A620M DS3H
GIGABYTE A620M S2H
GIGABYTE A620M H
GIGABYTE A620M K
AMD said with the launch of Ryzen 7000 CPUs and the X670/X670E series that, it will begin selling AM5 motherboards for $125. Since the least expensive Ryzen 7 7600 non-X costs $229 and the least expensive B650 motherboards cost between $159 and $169, the current entry point into the new platform is roughly $388. However, there is a cost associated with DDR5 memory.
PCI Express lanes and USB ports will likely be reduced on the A620 chipset. In addition, customers can anticipate a lack of PCIe Gen5 compatibility and probable restricted overclocking capabilities. However, AMD has not yet announced specifics for this entry-level chipset.
