For Ryzen on a Budget
AMD has officially lifted the lid on its latest entry-level chipset designed for its Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 and 4000 processors, the A520 chipset. Following AMD’s mid-tier B550 chipset launch a few months back, A520 brings up the bottom of AMD’s now fully-modernized chipset stack, dialing down on things like PCIe speeds to allow its board partners to build more budget-friendly Ryzen 3000/4000 motherboards.
Overall, A520 offers up to twenty-six available PCIe 3.0 lanes available when paired with a Ryzen 3000 processor, with twenty of these coming directly from the CPU. And, wasting no time, numerous vendors, including ASUS, ASRock, GIGABYTE, MSI, and Biostar have already unveiled some of their entry-level A520 boards.
A520 Chipset, The A-Team For Value
The Zen 2 architecture, which is the foundation of AMD’s latest Ryzen series of processors, has been its most popular series of processors to date. One of the marquee features of the B550 and X570 chipsets is PCIe 4. 0, which, although it hasn’t been fully utilized in devices like video cards and storage at present, it is still a popular feature that users hope will future-proof their systems for years to come. The A520 chipset, in turn, drops support for PCIe 4.0 speeds entirely in favor of PCIe 3.0, which is relatively easier to wire for and gives extra scope for the motherboard vendors to save costs compared to B550 and X570. The chipset officially represents AMD’s now current-generation entry-level pathway, and as always, is based around AMD’s AM4 socket.
Overall, the limitation in PCIe speeds for A520 is board-wide. Along with the chipset itself being limited to PCIe 3.0 support for both downstream and upstream, Ryzen processors will cap their on-chip PCIe lanes to PCIe 3.0 speeds when paired with an A520 motherboard. Further cutting PCIe-related costs, with A520 AMD offers less scope for lane allocation compared to B550 and X570, which allows vendors reduce the number of components required. There are only a couple of avenues in which vendors can configure their boards, such as selecting between using two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots or two SATA ports.
Meanwhile, A520 also supports a couple of different configuration options with the 4 high-speed storage lanes coming from the host CPU. This includes building a full-fledged PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slot, two PCIe 3.0 x2 M.2 slots, or a PCIe 3.0 x2 M.2 slot with two additional SATA ports.
- x4 PCIe 3.0 NVMe
- x2 PCIe 3.0 NVMe + 2 x SATA
- x2 PCIe 3.0 NVMe + x2 PCIe 3.0 NVMe
- 4x PCIe 3.0 + 2x PCIe 3.0
- 4x PCIe 3.0 + 2 SATA
The remaining PCIe lanes from the CPU, as always, are divided between a full-length PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, and a PCIe 3.0 x4 link between the CPU and the chipset.
As for USB connectivity, A520 offers support for up to four USB 3.2 G2 ports from the CPU. Meanwhile the chipset itself adds another USB 3.2 G2 port, two USB 3. 2 G1 ports, and six USB 2.0 ports.
The A520 chipset has identical processor support to that of the mid-range B550 chipset, with official support for AMD’s current Ryzen 3000 desktop processors as well as AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 4000 processors. Like with the B550 chipset, some A520 boards come with video outputs, which all but confirms support for AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs – especially seeing as how A520 doesn’t officially support the earlier Ryzen 3000 or 2000 series APUs.

The AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU stack starts at the Ryzen 3 3100 with four cores and eight threads, which is currently available for $99. This would be a very suitable processor to pair with an A520 motherboard, though more aspiring builders can use any of of the Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs, including the goliath sixteen core Ryzen 9 3950X.
The Current A520 Motherboard Stack
Accompanying AMD’s announcement of the A520 chipset, motherboard vendors have begun rolling out their respective A520 boards. The main form factor of choice for A520 thus far is Micro-ATX, with a couple of Mini-ITX boards including the ASRock A520M ITX/ac and the GIGABYTE A520I AC. Gigabyte also has the only full-sized ATX model announced so far, which is the GIGABYTE A520 Aorus Elite.
The GIGABYTE A520 Aorus Elite ATX Motherboard
A520 boards set to hit the market include some gaming themed models that primarily come from GIGABYTE with its Aorus models, as well as the ASUS TUF Gaming A520M-Plus. The solitary offering from Biostar is aimed at business and casual users with its A520MH V6.0.
The most feature-packed A520 model looks to be the GIGABYTE A520 Aorus Elite with four memory slots that support up to 128 GB of DDR4-4400 memory, a Realtek ALC1200 HD audio codec and an unspecified Realtek Gigabit Ethernet controller. It has two full-length PCIe 3.0 slots that operate at x16/x2, with three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots and a single PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots with four SATA ports.

At present, we don’t have MSRP pricing from any of the vendors, but we have reached out to each vendor individually, and we will update the above chart once we have the official pricing. It is likely that the vast majority of A520 boards will be below $150 due to B550 models starting at that price point. The A520 chipset is its most basic entry-level chipset for Ryzen 3000 processors.
Finally, today’s A520 release is a hard launch, with Newegg and other retailers already offering boards for sale. Not every board vendor has their wares on shelves just yet – as is usually the case for low-end board launches, this is a very relaxed launch – but over the coming days and weeks we should see the remainder of the A520s trickle into retail shops.
AMD Ryzen 7000 Fall New for Socket AM5 with 16 Zen4, PCIe 5, and DDR5 Cores / Sudo Null IT News The Ryzen 7000 family will feature up to 16 Zen 4 cores and be built on TSMC’s optimized 5nm process. The
AMD Ryzen 7000 will also put an end to the long-used AM4 socket. We are waiting for a new socket AM5 LGA1718 and a trio of chipsets that support it: X670E, X670 and B650.
AMD Ryzen: Five Years of Updates for PCs
Since the debut of the original AMD Ryzen processor on first generation Zen cores back in 2017, AMD has continually updated and improved its core architecture in a way that no one but AMD itself thought possible before Zen . One of the main achievements of Zen was the new socket AM4, which became one of the most successful in history and brought DDR4 memory to the mass market. In 2018, AMD released an updated Zen+ microarchitecture for Ryzen 2000 processors based on the more efficient and optimized 12nm GlobalFoundries architecture, as well as significantly improved inter-process communication performance.
In 2019, AMD introduced the Zen 2 architecture, which became the basis for the Ryzen 3000 series processors. By switching to TSMC’s high-performance 7nm manufacturing process, AMD achieved a 2x performance increase over Zen/Zen+. A new type of processor design has also emerged through the use of chiplets.
Zen 2 cores ruled the roost until 2020, when AMD introduced Zen 3 cores, which, compared to Zen 2, increased IPC to 19%, introduced the Resizable BAR feature, which made it easier for processors to work with video memory, and the cache size L3 memory brought the processor race to a new level. We also owe Zen 3 to the massive introduction of the PCIe 4.0 bus for desktop PCs.
AMD Ryzen 7000: Zen 4 and 5nm in every PC
The announcement of the AMD Ryzen 7000 family has been one of the most anticipated for the consumer market in 2022. It has long been known that the Zen 4 microarchitecture is built on TSMC’s optimized 5nm process, but everyone wanted more information. or Huawei, Zen 4 marks the first use of 5nm for desktop x86 compatible systems. AMD Ryzen 7000 and Zen 4 similarly to Zen 3 include a dual core chiplet (CCD) chiplet design based on TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process.
While AMD is not yet specific about the Zen 4 architecture, it is known that Zen 4 will ship with 1MB of L2 cache per core, which is twice the amount of L2 cache compared to Zen 3 processor cores (and Zen 2). AMD’s L3 cache size, as well as Zen 4 processors using 3D V-cache, are for future news events.
Thanks to the new architecture and TSMC’s 5nm process, AMD has been able to increase the clock speed as well. Officially, the company only claims a maximum clock speed of «5GHz+» at the moment, but a demo video of the talk showed a pre-production 16-core AMD Ryzen 7000 processor clocked at 5.5GHz.
As a result of all these improvements, AMD was able to improve single-threaded performance by more than 15%. This statement is based on Cinebench R23 tests comparing a pre-production 16-core Ryzen 7000 to a 16-core 5950X. Given the significant increase in clock speeds in new processors, it is suspected that most of the performance improvements are due to this. However, at the moment, there is no additional information about what major architectural changes AMD has made.
AMD also announced Zen 4/Ryzen 7000 AI acceleration instructions, specifically bfloat16 and int8/int4 data manipulation instructions
For the Ryzen 7000, AMD is also introducing a new 6nm replaces the 14nm IOD used in previous Zen 3 cores. For the first time for AMD, the new IOD includes an integrated GPU based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture. Thus, in the Ryzen 7000 generation, all AMD processors will technically be hybrid, because graphics are the main part of the chip design. It seems that all (or almost all) AMD processors will be suitable for use in systems without discrete graphics, which is not very important for consumer systems (using the example of Intel, we see that the consumer prefers processors without integrated graphics, including due to less prices), but very critical for corporate/commercial systems.
to 16 nuclei/ 32 flows
to 16 Nuclei
IOD: GloFo 12nm
The new IOD has allowed AMD to significantly reduce power consumption. In addition to the fact that TSMC’s 6nm process is well ahead of the old 12nm process by GlobalFoundries in this indicator, AMD has introduced many energy-saving technologies first developed for the Ryzen 6000 Mobile series into the new generation of processors. These include additional low power modes and active power management. As a result, the Ryzen 7000 should perform much better in idle and low CPU utilization workloads. It’s reasonable to assume that the IOD will also consume less power under load (at least with graphics disabled). But with all 16 cores fully loaded at more than 5 GHz, even with a thinner process technology, low power consumption is not to be expected.
It should be noted that AMD is talking about the higher TDP of the Ryzen 7000. Although the vendor is not currently announcing official specifications, the AM5 platform, according to him, is designed for a nominal TDP of processors up to 170 W, and peak power consumption (Package Power Tracking) can reach 230 watts. It is also not yet known what specifications (more or less than these figures) will be provided by manufacturers of motherboards based on the X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets.
The AMD Zen 4 microarchitecture, combined with the new IOD, also provides official PCIe 5.0 support, very similar to what Intel introduced with its Alder Lake (12th Gen) architecture.
Combining an AMD Ryzen 7000 with an X670E, X670, or B650 motherboard will provide up to 24 PCIe lanes split between slots and storage devices. Based on AMD’s announcement, all data lanes from the Ryzen 7000 processor will support PCIe 5.0, but motherboard manufacturers will have to implement support for PCIe lanes at these speeds themselves. As a result, Ryzen 7000 processors on low-end motherboards are likely to have limited PCIe 5 support, leaving most peripherals connected to PCIe 4 lanes.0003
AM5: Socket LGA1718 and three new chipsets X670E, X670, and B650
With the announcement of the AMD Ryzen 7000 processor family officially ending the previous AM4 platform, the Ryzen 7000 will also be the first processor family to use the new AM5 platform. Replacing the socket with LGA with 1718 pins is caused by the need to support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, as well as a higher TDP of the processor.
The main change in the I/O bus, as noted earlier, was support for PCIe 5.0. It is designed for use with next generation graphics cards and SSDs (and other accelerators such as AI). However, AMD expects the first PCIe 5-enabled SSDs for the consumer market to be available in time for the launch of the AM5 platform. PCIe 5.0 offers more bandwidth (up to 32 GB/s in each direction) but places very high demands on signal quality. This is one of the reasons why AMD was forced to switch to a new LGA socket, abandoning the PGA used in AM4.
AM5 also adds support for quad-channel (128-bit) DDR5 memory for AMD platforms, promising a significant increase in memory bandwidth. Moreover, AMD declares support only for DDR5 memory. Unlike Intel, whose new generation of chipsets and Alder Lake processors support both DDR5 and DDR4, AMD has decided to completely abandon support for older memory formats.
AMD omitted supported memory speeds in their presentation, but based on their notes on pre-production processor benchmark tests, we can see that the company did this testing with DDR5-6000 memory. This means that the tests most likely used overclocked (XMP) memory, and gives hope that the AM5/Ryzen 7000 will be able to offer some headroom for overclocking frequencies and timings.
We also noted above that with AM5 and Ryzen 7000 AMD will switch to support processors with TDPs up to 170W (for Zen 4 cores), as opposed to the 105W TDP typical for processors of the previous series, such as AMD Ryzen 9 5950X . AMD is also using a new heatspreading cover design (IHS) on the Ryzen 7000 that is also compatible with previous socket AM4 coolers. This means that (theoretically) users wishing to upgrade to Ryzen 7000 will be able to use existing coolers with socket AM4 support.
Three new motherboard chipsets will support the new AM5 platform: X670E, X670 and B650. The X670E “Extreme” chipset will be the flagship. It is designed for premium models with an emphasis on extreme overclocking with full PCIe 5.0 support, that is, support for two PCIe 5.0 graphics slots, as well as at least one PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot for storage devices data. From the AMD specs, we can deduce that this bus lane allocation will be x8/x8/x4 with PCIe lane splits from the first PCIe x16 graphics card slot to the second, offering either x16 for one slot or x8 lanes for two.
Interestingly, AMD is now dividing the X670 chipset into two market segments at once compared to previous versions such as the X570, X470 and X370 chipsets. Both the X670E and X670 chipsets are positioned for enthusiasts. But also cheaper motherboards with reduced functionality can be developed based on the X670. In particular, the X670 chipset does not require PCIe 5.0 support for PCIe x16 slots. X670-based boards can use PCIe 4.0 instead of version 5. However, PCIe 5.0 will still be required for at least one M.2 NVMe SSD slot.
It is likely that premium motherboards such as ASUS’ ROG Crosshair series, MSI’s MEG series, and GIGABYTE’s Aorus Xtreme series will be based on the X670E chipset to separate them from the mid-price segment, where there will be more affordable options with the X670 .

Chipset B650, as in the case of the AMD of the AMD series B, will be oriented to ordinary users with a modest budget. Like the rest of the AM5 chipsets, the B650 requires mandatory PCIe 5.0 support for at least one M.2 slot, but does not have PCIe 5.0 support for PCIe slots. It also lacks the ability to overclock. According to the «paper» specifications, the B650 is similar to the X670, but with disabled overclocking and a reduced PCIe bus. We will receive details only with the release and test of motherboards on it.
Along with the announcement of the X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets, AMD also announced premium motherboards to look forward to when launching the Ryzen 7000 family. ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, Biostar X670E Valkyrie, GIGABYTE X670 Aorus Xtreme and MSI MEG X670E Ace.
AMD also confirmed that the AM5 will support the AMD Serial Voltage 3 (SVI3) standard. First introduced with the Ryzen 6000 series of mobile processors, SVI3 provides more precise power management and significantly faster response to voltage changes. Particularly for desktop boards, SVI3 also supports more power phases, which will be especially useful for high-end X670E motherboards.
Since all AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will have integrated graphics, AM5 supports implementation for any motherboard price segment. Motherboards with the AM5 will be able to support up to four display outputs using a combination of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2 ports.
With the AM5, AMD will also bring an update to the USB ports, though not as massive as we hoped. AM5 supports up to 14 SuperSpeed USB 20Gb/s (USB 3.2 Gen 2×2) Type-C ports. Alas, AMD does not mention USB4, so it is likely that we will not see this type of ports in the first generation of chipsets.
AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop processors: don’t wait until autumn
The current announcement is essentially one big teaser whetting the audience’s appetite. It shows the first details about the Ryzen 7000 chips and the AM5 platform, but the actual launch of the new AMD platform will not happen until the end of September 2022. Or, perhaps, it will be generally postponed to the end of the year.
The announcement of the Ryzen 7000 sounded quite early, but this is usual for AMD. The Zen 4 processor architecture was scheduled to launch in 2022 (according to AMD’s plans), so the computer industry knew that sooner or later it would happen. And, since Intel pulled out of Computex, AMD was able to take center stage in the CPU-GPU news. It would be foolish for AMD not to announce a new platform, especially since their Taiwanese motherboard partners were eager to showcase their new products.
Either way, expect more news from AMD on Ryzen 7000 and the AM5 platform in the coming months. The company still has something to tell, and it will not be limited to one presentation before the official release.

Best motherboard for AMD Ryzen 5 7600X
A low end processor that you can find some good options to pair it with.
AMD has introduced a new socket AM5 with its new generation of processors. This means that after long support for AM4, you will have to upgrade.
So you will be looking for a new and updated motherboard for your new processor, so we bring you the best motherboard for AMD Ryzen 5 7600X.
Initially, only the X670E boards dominated the space. They are sold at a higher price, but it may take some time before you can get something else.
So, now we will look at the best options for processors with a smaller budget.
Both of these chipsets improved the PCIe speed to Gen 5, but with different bandwidth. So X670E supports PCIe 5.0 for both your M.2 and GPU in a larger range. Whereas the X670 is more limited in what it offers. This likely means that only one PCIe x16 and one M.2 can have improved speed.
X670E also pays more attention to power delivery and stable overclocking. While the X670 still has overclocking capability, but not to the same extent.
What is the best form factor for the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X?
Motherboard form factors have nothing to do with the processor itself. It simply affects the size of the motherboard, how much space it takes up, and what features it can offer.
There are four basic sizes: Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX, and Extended ATX. They range from the smallest to the largest and mostly affect the overall size of your build.
Mini-ITX typically has one PCIe slot and cuts down on other options. For example, there are fewer storage and connectivity options, sometimes outside of some of them.
While the largest EATX will require its own stands, which may not be suitable for most applications. Therefore, a special thought is required.
So when it comes to picking one of these, it’s best to see how it fits into your build.
Do I need a new motherboard for AMD Ryzen 5 7600X?
Yes, if you have an older AM4 compatible motherboard, you will need a new AM5 motherboard. Because AMD has changed the design of their processor and socket.
Design improvement from PGA to LGA places pins on motherboard instead. This is a denser LGA 1178 design similar to what Intel has.
This means that any processor older than Ryzen 7000 will not work on these new motherboards. And if you’re looking for a new processor, you’ll need to pair it with a new mobile device.
