Pricing for ASUS' X370 and B350 motherboards have now leaked, with the company providing overclocking support for motherboards that cost as little as $69.
 
On the high-end ASUS' X370 Crosshair VI Hero comes with a price tag of $209, which is $20 lower than the current price of ASUS' Z270 Maximum IX Hero at Newegg. This is a great sign that AMD's AM4 platform will be more affordable than Z270, though it remains to be seen which will offer a superior feature set.    
 
Below is a table which details the leaked prices and specification of four ASUS AM4 motherboards, from their ROG Crosshair series all way down to their low-end Prime B350M-A.

  ASUS has announced their CROSSHAIR VI Hero AM4 Motherboard

 With AM4 AMD's motherboard lineup will be brought to the modern day, with all vendors, not just ASUS, offering feature sets that are competitive with Intel's modern offerings and simply outclass everything that is available on AMD's older motherboard platforms.

Looking at these leaked motherboard prices and specifications it looks like AMD has designed AM4 to offer great value for money, especially when considering the fact that these motherboards are designed to be used with 8-core 16-thread CPUs.

If these prices are true, AM4 is going to be affordable, with this list not even including the ultra-affordable A320 chipset and other non-overclocking motherboard variants.

Well I'm not moving over to AMD for my main rig, I'm getting a 6900K pre-owned for cheap from a work mate who upgraded to a 6950X so no need to swap over but a mate of mine is wanting to upgrade to the 1800X from an 8320 and wants to get the best mobo that is released.Quote

You got lucky.

But i think these super high end motherboards aren't going to be cheap if ASUS made a ASUS Crosshair VI Extreme i would think they would probably end up costing like $449.00.

Yes i know still cheaper than Intel but if people want the best they have to pay that kind of money.Quote
