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 disks, 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 four main sockets: AM1 (FS1b), AM3+, FM2 and FM2+, depending on the processor used.
These motherboards are based on the AMD B350 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen range of CPUs. The B350 is the mid-range Ryzen chipset, and so features a modest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes. Unlike the more expensive X370 motherboards, B350 boards do not support SLI or CrossFire. These particular boards are small form factor micro-ATX designs with modest 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.
Please note: In order to use a AMD Ryzen 5 CPU with these Motherboards, you may need to update the motherboard BIOS to the latest version before installing the CPU.
