Motherboards - AMD

Need help choosing the right board? Read our AMD Motherboard Buying Guide

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 TRX40 Socket TRX4 ATX & Larger Motherboards

These motherboards are based on the AMD TRX40 chipset and are designed for 3rd generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The TRX40 is the only chipset for these CPUs. These particular boards are full size ATX or larger designs with maximum expandability.


AMD X570 Socket AM4 ATX Motherboards

These motherboards are based on the AMD X570 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen range of CPUs. The X570 is the flagship Ryzen chipset, and so features the highest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes plus support for StoreMI, a caching technology which fuses together two storage devices into a single volume, intelligently moving data to the faster drive. Choose an X570 motherboard over a X470 motherboard for PCI-E 4.0 support.

Please Note: The graphics outputs that feature on some of the motherboards below are designed for use with AMD processors which feature a GPU integrated within the CPU chip itself. These graphics outputs, such as HDMI, DVI, VGA & DisplayPort will not function unless a compatible CPU with integrated graphics is installed.
