AMD B550 and A520 chipset motherboards from ASMedia are expected in 2020

We would experience a price increase with the launch of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series motherboards for those who want to take full advantage of these new processors. Nobody has said that the latest technologies are cheap, so those who want to use the new PCI-Express 4.0 will have to spend an extra on the AMD X570 chipset, but there are still all the X470 models to achieve robust models and pay more for having a technology that is unlikely to take a long time.

A possible option would be to expect affordable variants of the AMD 500 series chipsets sourced from ASMedia.

According to DigiTimes, ASMedia will remove its new silicon chipset from the AMD platform as it delivers its new chips to motherboard manufacturers in Q4-2019. This would ensure the availability of the first motherboards based on these chipsets at least in the first quarter of 2020. These chipsets not only have PCI-Express Gen 4.0 downlines, but the boards based on them will also be built to AMD’s PCB requirements for the new platform. A PCI-Express 4.0 x16 slot for discrete graphics and certified CPU VRM and memory specifications that improve platform overclocking over the previous generation. Two SKUs are currently in use, the B550, which follows the B450, and the A520, which follows the A320.
