Last week we saw the first motherboards for the future AMD Ryzen 7000 for the first time. It was during Computex and several of the most famous manufacturers in the sector presented their proposals. Well we finally know price of motherboards with X670 chipset and its Extreme version. That’s thanks to GIGABYTE filtering not just the specs, but the price as well. How much will it cost us to upgrade to Zen 4 later this year?
There’s one thing that’s very clear, for anyone planning to build a Ryzen 7000-based PC, it won’t be easy. The reason behind this we all know now. It will be the first time in more than five years that AMD has abandoned the AM4 socket and adopted the new AM5. It will therefore be necessary to change the motherboard to be able to use this processor. This is not the only expense we will have to make, since AMD’s commitment to the new DDR5 memory is total. However, what interests us as end users is how much this update will cost. Well, luckily, GIGABYTE has leaked the prices for its X670 and X670E chipset motherboards.
How much will motherboards with X670 chipset cost?
For the moment we do not have models from all manufacturers under the future high-end chipset from AMD. So we will have to get a rough idea with the GIGABYTE leak. Even if since then it is a market that is a red ocean where the models of the different manufacturers are not very far apart in terms of price. What happens when they have identical advantages.
And what is the price of GIGABYTE X670 motherboards? Well, as you might have imagined, there are different models with different characteristics in terms of connectivity, as well as the number of available ports of each type. We can, however, get an idea of the price range in which they are located to have a general idea of what it will be necessary to save to acquire one of these plates for the Ryzen 7000.
- The most expensive motherboard will be the X670E AORUS Xtreme
- Second, and in descending order, we have the Master X670E AORUS who will have a price around 400$. The same can be said of Gigabyte X670(E) AERO D which will cost the same. The only difference between the two? One M.2 slot plus the AORUS, two USB4 ports for the Aero.
- Now finally we have the X670 AORUS PRO which will be placed below the others, but above 300 dollars.
So, as you can see, the jump to the Ryzen 7000 won’t be exactly cheap. In any case, we must not forget the cards based on the B650 chipset that were also presented a few days ago. Anyway, the price seems exaggerated to us and is expected for any transition to a new generation of processors which brings with it a change of socket.
