Asus to launch a second round of B450 motherboards

69 Views

Asus has announced that it’s about to release a second round of B450 motherboards, a collection it is calling B450 II series motherboards. A somewhat surprising move given that we’ve had X570 and B550 motherboards launch since the first wave touched our systems. This older chipset lacks the PCIe 4.0 goodness that you’ll find on those newer motherboards, but they are much cheaper, and that has led to many a B450 motherboard making its way into more budget-conscious builds. Lots of builds. In fact enough builds for Asus to revisit this older chipset and update it with a few choice extras.

This interesting turn of events all originated with AMD announcing that the X470/B450 platforms wouldn’t support the newer Zen 3 CPUs, which are set to be announced on October 8th. There was a bit of an outcry about this, which forced AMD to change its mind and announce that those older platforms would indeed be supported after all.
