AMD will release a new entry-level A520 motherboard on August 18
AMD’s performance in the consumer processor market in the past two years can be described as leaps and bounds, not only from the desktop processor market step by step but also gradually starting to catch up in the mobile processor market.
Relying on the relatively low price and good quality of AMD processors, AMD’s market share in the entry-level market is getting higher and higher, and the penetration rate of AMD processors in entry-level desktop devices is indeed increasing.
Next week, AMD plans to launch a new generation of entry-level motherboards, the motherboard model is A520, the main user group is the budget-conscious entry-level Ryzen processor users.
The current AMD platform’s new generation motherboards such as X570 and B550 are relatively expensive, and the market performance is not particularly good. At the same time, users who do not need to use PCIe 4 also need to pay for this feature, so some users will choose to buy the previous generation motherboard (B450), but because the current motherboard manufacturers have allocated their production capacity to the latest batch of motherboards, it is difficult for users to buy the desired B450 motherboard.
Therefore, in order to meet the needs of the entry-level market, AMD decided to launch this A520 motherboard with a price range of US$100 to US$150. This motherboard supports AMD’s AM4 platform but does not support PCIe 4, and the I/O performance is not counted.
