Motherboards - AMD

The motherboard is the central hub of a PC, the board to which every other main component connects – CPUs in the socket, memory in the DIMM slots, and GPUs, sound cards and other expansion cards in the PCIe slots. Hard drives, SSDs, optical drives and front-panel ports also connect to it. Motherboards have a huge variety of features so research carefully first. You need to make sure your motherboard will fit in your case and that its socket matches your chosen CPU. Current desktop AMD motherboards have six main sockets: AM1, AM3+, FM2, FM2+, AM4 and TR4, depending on the processor used. The latest Ryzen chips use AM4 while the Threadripper performance monster requires a TR4-based motherboard.

AMD X370 Socket AM4 ATX Motherboards

These motherboards are based on the AMD X370 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen range of CPUs. The X370 is the flagship Ryzen chipset, and so features the highest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes. Choose an X370 motherboard over a B350 motherboard for more I/O and SLI and CrossFire support. These particular boards are full size ATX designs with maximum expandability.

Please note: The motherboards below with graphics outputs are designed for future AMD processors with onboard graphics. Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7 CPUs do not have onboard graphics and require a discrete graphics card.
