AMD Announces A620 Motherboard Availability

Sandy Bridge

Recommended Posts

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.

Yep, make sure people is forced to buy their more expensive MB. Because it's bad for profits if people try go the cheap route if they want the X (X3D) chips. Great idea 🙂
