AMD is preparing A620 entry-level chipset for Ryzen 7000 series

The A620 series from Gigabyte and ASUS making their first appearance.

The sales of Ryzen 7000 directly correlated with the AM5 motherboard pricing. It is an entirely new platform for AMD, which requires new socket and more expensive DDR5 memory technology.

Earlier this month, AMD launched Ryzen 7000 non-X series in an effort to provide a cheaper alternative of 65W processors. Yet, sometimes customers may find slower CPUs actually selling for more than faster ‘X’ counterparts.

The good news is that budget friendly AMD A620 motherboards might be just around the corner. Some new models have just been spotted over at Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office and on Goofish selling platform. The following motherboards were listed there:

  • ASUS TUF GAMING A620M-PLUS D5
  • GIGABYTE A620M D3H
  • GIGABYTE A620M DS3H
  • GIGABYTE A620M S2H
  • GIGABYTE A620M H
  • GIGABYTE A620M K

At launch of Ryzen 7000 CPUs and X670/X670E series, AMD announced its plan to sell AM5 motherboards starting from $125. The current entry point into new platform is around $388, which is the lowest price of Ryzen 7 7600 non-X ($229) and the cheapest B650 motherboards ($159-$169). But there is also a cost of newer DDR5 memory.

The A620 chipset will almost certainly get fewer PCIe lanes and USB ports. Customers should also prepare for missing PCIe Gen5 support and most likely locked overclocking capabilities. However, AMD is yet to confirm the exact details for this entry-level chipset.
