AMD A620 motherboard confirmed to cut off PCIe Gen5

AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors have been on the market for a while now, but the high cost of supporting motherboards and DDR5 memory has deterred many users from purchasing them. However, AMD has recently announced that it will be launching a batch of cost-effective A620 series motherboards that will lower the entry price of the AM5 platform. The A620 series chipset will cut off unnecessary functions such as PCIe 5.0, making it a more affordable option for gamers.

A620 Motherboard Support Confirmed

Last month, ASRock registered a number of B650M and A620M motherboards on the Eurasian Economic Commission website, indicating that they will be available soon. VideoCardz recently released pictures of the ASRock A620-HDV/M.2 motherboard, revealing that the A620 series chipset does not support PCIe Gen5 devices. This means that gamers will no longer have to pay for additional features that they do not need.

Suitable for the Ryzen 7000X3D Series

The AMD A620 platform is said to be suitable for the Ryzen 7000X3D series, which is not designed for overclocking. These two platforms are ideal for users who prefer not to tinker with their system and want a lighter power supply test for the motherboard. The ASRock A620M-HDV/M.2 motherboard uses a Micro-ATX form factor with a PCIe Gen4 x16 slot and two DDR5 DIMM slots. The M.2 NVMe interface connected to the CPU is also limited to Gen 4.

Other Features

In addition to the limited M.2 NVMe slot, the ASRock A620M-HDV/M.2 motherboard offers an additional M.2 NVMe slot and an M.2 E-key slot for the WLAN wireless card module. The motherboard adopts a 24pin ATX and 8pin EPS power supply design and looks like 50a DrMOS. It also provides two SATA 6 Gbps interfaces, DisplayPort and HDMI, four USB 3-A, USB-C, 1 GbE wired network ports, 6-channel audio interface, and more.

Release Date and Price

Although AMD has not confirmed its plans for the A620 chipset, it is expected to be released next month. The A620 series is expected to be cheaper than the B650 motherboards, which currently cost around 125 US dollars.
