A520 motherboards arrive August 18

The AMD A520 chipset is expected to bring down the ticket price for the latest generation Ryzen machines…and future ones.

The AMD X570 and B550 platforms are far from accessible and we have all seen some inflation on this generation of motherboards. It seemed obvious that a majority would not be especially motivated to pay extra for the PCIe Gen 4 advantage, which is far from being effective at this time. The strength of sales of cards equipped with the B450 has only demonstrated this since the launch of the new generation of Ryzen CPU.

As a result, the future A520 series will not have the PCIe Gen 4 connectivity provided by the X570 and B550 boards, but this series will not only enable entry-level PCs to be built, but will also provide full support for AM4 processors, including Ryzen’s 3rd generation. According to our tests, we can also tell you that the A520s support the new APUs. Our Ryzen 4650G currently in testing doesn’t boot on anything other than a B550…it is now also very well supported by the A520 which makes sense considering the target market of this CPU.

The A520 motherboards are therefore intended to replace the A320 series which is still in circulation and which has been doing a great service for some time. According to momomo_us, who, by snooping around, was able to find the public price of the new cards, the positioning of the new cards would be 10$ higher than the equivalent A320 series.
