VideoCardz has received images of upcoming ASRock motherboard with AMD A620 chipset. The specified entry-level system logic set is intended for use in mainboards in the budget segment.
According to the source, unlike the AMD X670 / X670E and B650 / B650E chipsets presented earlier and used in motherboards, the A620 chipset does not support the PCIe 5.0 interface either for graphics cards or for SSDs.
According to VideoCardz, AMD A620 chipset-based motherboards could be the best choice for Ryzen 7000X3D processors. As you know, the latter are not designed for overclocking, and some models have lower power consumption compared to regular Ryzen 7000X models. Therefore, these processors do not require motherboards with enhanced VRM power supply subsystems to power the processor, which is typical for motherboards based on AMD X670/X670E and B650/B650E chipsets.
ASRock prepares A620M-HDV/M.2 motherboard. It uses the Micro-ATX form factor, is equipped with a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot for a graphics card and two slots for DDR5 RAM.
AMD itself hasn’t announced any plans to release the A620 chipset yet. According to VideoCardz, based on the logic set by the system, budget board sales can start next month.
