Sandy Bridge Posted April 2 Share Posted April 2 Hot in from Tom's Hardware: AMD has curiously taken a decidedly low-key approach to launching its value-centric A620 motherboards, burying the full details of its A620 announcement late on a Friday night, but the company has finally shared the full details and slide deck with us about its new range of value-geared motherboards. To reduce pricing, the motherboards will not support the full range of Ryzen 7000 processors at their full power levels — none of the Ryzen 7000 X-series processors are guaranteed to be fully supported. Pricing starts at $85. Personally I think it's a sensible move not trying to support all the high-end TDPs, and IMO AMD probably should have set an intermediary target for B650 as well (105W? while leaving B650E for the full range), to keep its prices more moderate. I may wind up buying one depending on the feature and price comparisons of the individual boards to B650 alternatives.
