AMD’s Budget B650, B650E Motherboards Top Out at $450

Newegg has a ton of listings of new AM5 B650 motherboards from Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and ASRock, including board prices. But these boards don’t come cheap. AMD’s cheapest motherboard in his B650 lineup starts at $169.99, and no board comes close to AMD’s official starting MSRP of $125. At its peak, the B650E flagship board sells for over $450.

These incredible price increases represent a major shift in purpose for AMD’s entire chipset lineup. All of AMD’s chipset models are currently competing with each other, with prices overlapping between his B650, B650E, X670 and even his X670E chipset boards. As a result, shoppers will have to pivot and start looking at motherboard model names first to find the right value. As a result, looking at the chipset name alone is almost meaningless.
