Last month AMD launched their Ryzen 7000 series of processors based on the new Zen 4 architecture. Alongside this new architecture, we got our first taste of Socket AM5 motherboards with the X670E and X670. Today AMD are back with the gaming, creator and entry-level motherboard series, the B650E and B650.

Don’t be fooled. Both the B650E and B650 have some pretty spicy capabilities with support for DDR5 RAM, PCIe Gen 5 NVMe storage for lightning-fast load times, and even AMD Expo memory overclocking for maximum performance.

Which AMD Processors use B650E and B650 Motherboards?

All Ryzen 7000 series processors including the Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 5 7600X are compatible with B650E and B650 motherboards. These new CPUs offer a great generational leap in performance alongside a jump in energy efficiency. In fact, the Ryzen 9 7950X is up to 47% more energy efficient than the competition.

entry level motherboard @220 quid. lol jog on amd.
Well it's not really entry level, it's midrange and not up to AMD, it's up to the individual manufacturers.

A520 was entry level for AMD and even then, companies just refreshed their B450 range and dropped the price. Guessing that there will be an A620 motherboard but it'll still be £100 to £150.

For once, all the big players are taking AMD seriously and charging a serious arm and a leg in the process.

Can't wait for pricing to drop when sales aren't great.

Good luck with those prices giving the cost of living crisis, a client desktop market in full recession and stiff competition from Intel.
I was toying with the idea of a full upgrade to my system but now, if these are the expected prices, I’ll be replacing the 3700x with a 5800x and keeping my 50 quid x450 mortar max till it dies. 200 quid entry level mobo’s…….and I thought Pc ownership couldn’t get anymore mental.

my z77 d3h cost 80 quid, oc well, has served to this day (still used). Id never buy anything more expensive when mb are all the same really they dont have any performance differences, its either just more ports or wifi addon etc really aint it. If the basic ones can oc decently then why on earth are the manufacturers making mb look fancy and say this and that balls talk to get ppl to pay for hundreads.

Im seriously considering dropping a 5800x in to replace my 3600, i was all aboard the zen-train but the cpu prices, the insane motherboard prices and DDR5 still being fairly pricey. They can sit on the shelves at those prices
