Amd launches a520 chipset for ryzen systems
AMD's new inexpensive motherboard chipset is out now, and many different manufacturers have released motherboards based on this design. The A520 chipset is compatible with currently available 3rd generation Ryzen (Zen 2) based processors and is compatible with the next generation Ryzen CPU based on the Zen 3 architecture. It is limited to PCIe v3.0, which is the biggest disadvantage compared to B550 motherboard. If you plan to equip your system with multiple NVMe-based SSDs, this can cause problems. The limited bandwidth provided by the outdated version of PCIe can be a real problem for some users, but if you have a fairly simple build, this may not be a big problem for you.
You may be able to save a bit of money instead of paying for a more expensive motherboard with features you don't need, but it's important to consider other components that you want to pair with the motherboard. This motherboard will not allow you to overclock the CPU, so no matter what type of processor you install, it will not be able to run at normal speed. Compared to its predecessor, the A320,
chipset, the changes here are quite small. It can be compatible with upcoming CPUs and faster USB port speeds (up to 3.2 speeds now).
Several manufacturers have announced a line of motherboards based on this new chipset. There are several boards with different additional functions and different sizes to better suit your needs. These are some of the options that are already provided:
A520M / ac

As these new inexpensive cards become available in retail stores and pricing information becomes available, we will continue to update our build guide to understand where these cards are suitable for purchasing high quality motherboards at reasonable prices.
