AMD has not yet launched its affordable A620 series motherboards for its Ryzen 7000 series processors and it is highly expected that by this year we will be seeing these motherboards making their way into the market. To confirm so, a member of the HardwareLuxx community has found this BIOS for the ASUS TUF Gaming A620M PLUS motherboard.
Videocardz didn’t delay to report this, and such a leak in March 2023 makes sense as already Q1 23 has passed and you can expect the budget AM5 socket motherboards to make their way into the market. As AMD’s older Ryzen 5000 series is doing quite well in the market with the old AM4 socket, there’s no urgency to launch these budget motherboards now.
However, these new Ryzen 7000 series processors are underperforming against Intel primarily because of the higher platform costs, so, unless AMD releases these cost-effective motherboards, they cannot attract the masses obviously.
ASUS TUF A620 motherboard spotted
AMD has not yet addressed the potential release of a budget AM5 series despite a leaked BIOS dated from October 14th of the previous year. This ASUS TUF A620M PLUS motherboard must be in the works but its release is totally up to AMD now, this budget option also lacks support for PCIe Gen5 standard.
However, it appears to have one Gen4x16 and two M.2 slots in Gen4x4, which should be ample for a budget AMD board. As we all know, the Ryzen B650/X670 platforms desperately require a more affordable option, AMD has promised $125 A620 motherboards, but they only recently appeared on the market in early March.
