ASRock introduces AMD A620 Ryzen 7000 motherboards

ASRock has presented four motherboard models with Socket AM5 processor and low-end AMD A620 chipset. New items are for Ryzen 7000 type processors. All boards are made in Micro-ATX form factor and do not support PCIe 5.0 interface for graphics cards and SSDs due to chipset limitations.

The ASRock A620M-HDV/M.2 and A620M-HDV/M.2+ models are very similar to each other. However, their specifications are different. The A620M-HDV/M.2 uses a 6-phase 4+1+1 VRM power subsystem. The A620M-HDV/M.2+ model, on the other hand, has a slightly more powerful VRM power supply subsystem with a 6+1+1 phase scheme. The first model of the board supports the installation of DDR5 RAM with speeds up to 5600 MHz. The M.2+ model supports DDR5-6400 memory.

The new products also differ in the number of available connections. The A620M-HDV/M.2 model received one PCIe 4.0 x16 and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. In addition, the board is equipped with two SATA III connectors, one PCIe 4.0 x4, one M.2 PCIe 3.0 x2 and five USB 3.2 Gen1 (one of them Type-C).

The A620M-HDV/M.2+ model got four SATA III ports, two M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 slots and six USB 3.2 Gen1 (one of them Type-C). Both boards are also equipped with Gigabit network adapters, Realtek ALC897 audio codecs and slots for WLAN modules.

The models of WiFi boards A620M Pro RS and A620M Pro RS differ only in the presence of a Wi-Fi module in the latter. At the same time, both models received 9-phase VRM power subsystems with circuits. 6+2+1. For these boards, the manufacturer claims the ability to work with DDR5-6000+ RAM by supporting overclocking profiles.

Both new items received one PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, two M.2 slots for PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe drives, four SATA III, one M.2 PCIe 3.0 x2, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C and five USB 3.2 Gen1 Type -A.

In addition, they are equipped with Gigabit network controllers, support Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth wireless standards (the A620M Pro RS lacks a wireless module and antennas), and are also equipped with Realtek ALC897 audio codecs, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors.
