AMD Ryzen 7000 sales were directly related to AM5 motherboard pricing. AMD’s new platform necessitates a new socket and more expensive DDR5 memory technology. AMD launched the Ryzen 7000 non-X series earlier this month in an effort to provide a cheaper alternative to 65W processors. However, slower CPUs may occasionally sell for more than their faster ‘X’ counterparts.
When comparing both companies’ latest platforms (AM5 vs LGA1700), AMD initially lost the value battle to Intel; however, the red team isn’t standing still and has taken actions to correct these initial flaws, such as the introduction of Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs, which come at lower prices and offer nearly the same performance while running cooler and delivering far better power efficiency, and the upcoming Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs, which will bring gamers attention to the AM5 platform.
AMD motherboard partners are preparing lower-cost AM5 options in the form of the A620 chipset lineup, which will be available next month.
Since the release of AM5, no motherboard manufacturer has released a product priced at the $125 US tier that AMD had promised. In fact, most of the B650 motherboards, which were supposed to restore affordability to the AM5 platform, ended up at exorbitant prices, making the AM4 platform even more appealing.
The AMD A620 chipset has yet to be officially announced, but AMD has promised that a lower-cost AM5 solution will be available to consumers in February. As a result, motherboard manufacturers are preparing to launch the motherboards, and some of these new products, including four Gigabyte products, have leaked at EEC.
In addition to the Gigabyte motherboards, one ASUS A620 model, the TUF Gaming Plus (DDR5), is available at Goofish for 799 RMB. That’s still around $120 USD, but when compared to the B650 offering, that’s a price difference of nearly $110 USD, which is massive. Prices at Goofish aren’t always final, and they could be even lower.
