MSI B660 Motherboards for mainstream Intel Alder Lake DDR5 Builds have been leaked along with their pricing.
The large bulk of Z690 motherboards on the market currently cost more than $200. That’s not surprising considering that the Z690 is a flagship chipset, but if you’re seeking a cheaper way into the Alder Lake area, keep an eye out for the B660, which is likely just around the corner.
This is evidenced by a rumored leaked pricing list for numerous MSI B660 motherboards. If the pricing list is accurate, MSI will release at least 10 B660 motherboards soon, with MSRPs as low as $119. The pricing list highlights a few possibilities that will be less than $200.
According to the price list, MSI will launch four MAG versions and six Pro models as part of its B660 portfolio.
•MSI MAG B660 Tomahawk WiFi: $259
•MSI MAG B660M Mortar WiFi: $239
•MSI MAG B660M Mortar: $219
•MSI MAG B660M Bazooka $199
•MSI PRO B660-A: $209
•MSI PRO B660M-A- WiFi: $209
•MSI PRO B660M-A: $189
•MSI PRO B660M-G: $139
•MSI PRO B660M-B: $129
•MSI PRO B660M-E: $119
The MSI Pro B660M-E is the most affordable alternative, costing $119. On the CPU front, the Core i5-12600K, which costs $299, is the least priced Alder Lake chip thus far. So, before you figure in RAM, you’d be looking at approximately $418 for the two. Certainly, additional Alder Lake desktop CPUs will be released in the future.
