Intel B760 Motherboards Expected To Cost Slightly More Than B660

Recent indications from Chinese motherboard manufacturers suggest that the price of the the’mid-range’ series would rise from generation to generation. BoardChannels, the source of all channel rumors, asserts that Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers would soon supply B760 motherboards to distributors. The shipment will begin this week. Taiwan is home to some of the world’s most well-known tech companies, including ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI.

Additionally, it is rumored that the price of the new generation of B760 motherboards would rise by around 100 Yuan (14 USD). This is the average price rise for less expensive variants; however, customized models with more advanced power delivery and features will cost 200 to 300 Yuan more than the previous generation, according to the source.

The reports include no details about the H770 upper mid-range series. Leaks involving similar boards already indicate that this chipset will be released at the same time. In comparison to the flagship Z790 series, the H770 and B760 support fewer PCIe lanes, have a shorter DMI channel, and lack key capabilities, such as enhanced overclocking.

Intel is expected to introduce its 13th-generation Core non-K desktop CPUs on January 5, which is also when the new 700-series motherboards will go on sale, according to reports.

Update: The pricing for MSI’s next B760 motherboard lineup was revealed by hardware leaker chi11eddog. Prices range from $169 for the PRO B760-A WIFI DDR4 and $209 for the B760 I EDGE WIFI. If this pricing is accurate, the next-generation MSI motherboard maybe 10% lower than the B660 series during launch, but still noticeably more expensive than the current retail price.
