AMD has now released its mid-range B650 motherboard series for Ryzen 7000 series

The B650 and B650E motherboards are now available starting from 160 USD in the US.

There is no sign of the promised $125 AMD AM5 boards yet, but the prices for B650 series indeed start much lower than premium X670. The cheapest boards have a MSRP of $159.9, but the majority of designs are oscillating around $200, which may still be too expensive for most users.

The B650 and B650E series are targeted for 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X and 8-core Ryzen 7 7700X CPUs, available at $299 and $399 respectively. That said, the entry point for AMD AM5 platform is now $450, which no cheaper CPUs or motherboard in sight.

Newegg is reportedly listing AMD B650 motherboards at MSRP, which the cheapest one at $169.99, except it won’t be available until late October. Other B650 designs start at $199.99, but they are available immediately.

According to Hassan Mujtaba from Wccftech, Gigabyte will offer B650M DS3H motherboard for as low as $159.99, but this design is not listed by Newegg yet. It appears that currently the most expensive B650 motherboard is ASRock Taichi, which is just 50 dollars cheaper than X670E Taichi.

When it comes to other stores, the most affordable AMD B650 motherboards at BestBuy and MicroCenter are $229.99. Interestingly, the following offers are the only B650 motherboards listed by both stores.
