AMD Ryzen Compatible A520 motherboards are now available to pre-order from ASUS

A new Ryzen compatible AM4 chipset has appeared on UK retail shelves, arriving as the first 500-series AMD motherboard to lack PCIe 4.0 support. A520 is AMD’s new baseline AM4 chipset, sitting below B550 to deliver motherboards with sub-£100 pricing. 

At Overclockers UK, A520 motherboards are now available to pre-order from ASUS, shipping with price tags between £61.99 and £79.99, making them cheaper than all of AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Generation (Zen 2) 3000 series processors.

AMD’s A520 chipset will support AMD’s planned Zen 3 Ryzen processors, supporting both Vermeer (Zen 3 CPU) and Cezanne (Zen 3 APU), requiring nothing more than a BIO update to do so. Zen 3 Vermeer processors are due to release later this year. 

Right now, three ASUS A520 motherboards are available at Overclockers UK, the £61.99 ASUS Prime A520M-K, the £69.95 ASUS Prime A520M-A and the £79.99 ASUS TUG Gaming A520M-PLUS. All of these motherboards utilise the MATX form factor and support AMD’s Zen 2 processors.
