ASRock’s AMD A620-Based Motherboard Pictured, Detailed
AMD announced last September that motherboards for its new Ryzen 7000 series processors and AM5 platform would end up costing $125, but AM5 motherboard prices remain high six months after launch. , which is slowing the adoption of the platform. general citizen. AMD’s A620 chipset promises to significantly reduce the cost of AM5 mainboards and ASRock looks like he will be the first company to adopt an A620-based platform.
video cards released the first pictures of ASRock’s A620M-HDV/M.2 motherboard on Monday, revealing what to expect from a typical platform based on AMD’s low-cost platform for AM5-based machines. To reduce the cost of the A620M-HDV/M.2, ASRock has equipped it with a cheap 3+1+1 phase voltage regulation module (VRM). A620 supports it), reduced the number of DIMM slots to 2, and omitted PCIe 5.0 support for both graphics and storage (as per AMD’s recommendations for A620-based platforms).
While some enthusiasts may consider the overclocking exclusion a drawback, note that AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D series does not support overclocking in general, but offers market-leading performance in gaming. please. That said, AMD’s A620 platform is a good choice for gamers on a budget, especially considering the fact that there are no client GPUs using the PCIe 5.0 x16 interface (at least they don’t seem to hit the market). may become. PCIe 5.0 x4 SSDs don’t seem to offer too many advantages for DirectStorage-enabled games compared to drives with PCIe 4.0 x4 interfaces.
Other expansion options available for A620M-HDV/M.2 include a PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2-2280 slot, an M.2-2230 slot for Wi-Fi adapters, two SATA ports, and two PCIe consists of x1 slot. In addition to these, it also has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, a GbE connector, four USB 2.0/3.0 Type-A ports and an audio jack.
ASRock’s A620M-HDV/M.2 isn’t the company’s only stable A620 powered solution. According to the company, nine such motherboards are in the works. entry in the EEC customs database. Based on ASRock’s motherboard model name, the company plans to offer his AMD A620 based motherboards exclusively in his Micro-ATX form factor. This seems like a logical move since most cheap PCs these days use this form factor.
As always, there is one caveat to all EEC filings. It may reveal products to be released, but it is not an indication that these products will actually ship. Changes to the EEC customs database may occur days or months before launch.
