These are the best motherboards for AMD CPUs in 2022

AMD’s been ahead of Intel in the battle of best CPUs for quite some time now. Although things are starting to change with the arrival of Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs and Windows 11, we think AMD chips have an upper hand over even the newer Intel chips in terms of platform cost, general availability, and more. This is why the best motherboards for AMD continue to remain a hot topic in the community. AMD motherboards are always in demand, but luckily there are more than a few AMD mainboards on the market.

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best motherboards for AMD CPUs you can buy right now. AMD has stuck with AM4 for a while now, so there are plenty of options to choose from. The X570, B550, X470, and even the B450 are all viable options right now, but not if you’re going to be getting Ryzen 7000. These have moved to a new platform.
