AMD's low-cost B450 chipset will soon be upon us, with retailers across the globe listing new AM4 mainboards despite the chipset's lack of an official launch.

The main draw of AMD's low-cost B450 chipset is that it offers compatibility with all of AMD's Ryzen processor lineup out of the box, including their recently released Ryzen 2nd Generation/2000 series of processors. Older AMD AM4/300-series motherboards may not ship with Ryzen 2000 series support, creating problems for those with current-generations processors that are unable to update their BIOS. This compatibility makes B450 processors a lot more desirable than their B350 counterparts, especially when combined with the design tweaks that increase memory compatibility and decrease chipset power draw. 

Overclockers UK, one of the UK's largest PC components retailers, has listed Gigabyte's upcoming MATX B450M-DS3H motherboard on their storefront with an asking price of £69.95, making it the most affordable B450 motherboard on the website. 

This low-cost motherboard offers users support for up to 3200MHz memory, a single M.2 NVMe or SATA SSD, four SATA devices and a single graphics card in PCIe x16 mode. The motherboard also has a secondary PCIe x16 slot, which operates in PCIe x4 mode and s single PCIe 2.0 x1 slot.  

Users of AMD's Ryzen 2000 series APUs will be glad to know that this motherboard supports HDMI 2.0 and display resolutions of up to 4096x2160 at 60Hz, making this motherboard ideal for a Ryzen+Vega powered HTPC. This motherboard also supports HDCP 2.2.
