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 X399 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper range of CPUs. The X399 is the only chipset for these CPUs, and so features the highest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes. These particular boards are full size ATX or larger designs with maximum expandability.
Save the hassle of choosing all the components separately and upgrade your PC the easy way with a pre-selected bundle of components based around a new CPU and motherboard. These bundles will save you money as they are discounted compared to buying all the components separately.
