First introduction of the A620 series from Gigabyte and ASUS.
The price of AM5 motherboards was directly associated with the sales of Ryzen 7000. For AMD, it is a completely new platform, necessitating a new socket and more expensive DDR5 memory technology.
AMD introduced the Ryzen 7000 non-X series earlier this month in an effort to offer a less expensive alternative of 65W CPUs. However, occasionally buyers could discover that slower CPUs are actually selling for more than their faster “X” equivalents.
The good news is that affordable AMD A620 motherboards could be available soon. Recently, some new models have been detected on the Goofish selling site as well as at the Eurasian Economic Commission’s regulatory office. There was a list of the following motherboards:
- GIGABYTE A620M D3H
- GIGABYTE A620M DS3H
- GIGABYTE A620M S2H
- GIGABYTE A620M H
- GIGABYTE A620M K
- ASUS TUF GAMING A620M-PLUS

AMD stated its intention to sell AM5 motherboards starting at $125 at the launch of Ryzen 7000 CPUs and the X670/X670E series. The current starting price for the new platform is roughly $388, which is less expensive than both the cheapest B650 motherboards ($159–$169) and Ryzen 7 7600 non-X ($229). But more recent DDR5 memory comes at a price.

Less PCIe lanes and USB ports will very definitely be added to the A620 chipset. Additionally, customers should be prepared for the lack of PCIe Gen5 support and probable restricted overclocking capability. The precise information for this entry-level chipset has not yet been confirmed by AMD.
