Biostar Exec says OEM has Access to AMD’s B550 and Intel’s 400-Series Mobos

The next generation of AMD and Intel motherboards are all set to arrive. According to a Biostar executive, Vicky Wang, the OEM manufacturer has access to both AMD’s B550 chipset and Intel’s 400 series chipset. Wang said this during an interview with Brainbox. Sure, newer motherboards (and newer tech in general) is always a good thing. But what’s special about these boards?

The B550 is to be the successor to the B450, a price-performance champion. This is a bit of a tough ask, though: AMD’s 5-series boards feature an expensive multi-layer PCB layout to accommodate PCI-e 4.0 wiring. The actual cost of manufacturing is greater. And so far, we’ve only had the premium X570 boards on the market. Entry-level X570 solutions are now available for around $100. Between these and pressure from the bill of materials, we’re not quite sure where the B550 fits in.

Things are a bit simpler on the Intel side of things, though. We’re looking at an upcoming Z490 in the premium segment and the B460 and H410 for the midrange and entry-level markets. As is Intel standard, you’re probably not going to get overclocking support on the H410, so make sure to steer clear of that part if you’ve got a K series processor.
