X570 Boards for AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs to Cost as Much as $1,000

- Advertisement -

These days everyone is excited about the Ryzen 3000 CPUs and considering their aggressive pricing it won’t be surprising if a good chunk of people end up upgrading, especially given that most existing motherboards are going to support them. However, what if you want to get the new X570 chipset: superfast memory, PCIe 4.0, better I/O and all those shiny boards. We do know that these mobos are going to be expensive, but how expensive? Well, turns out quite a bit (or byte) with the MSI MEG X570 Godlike costing more than $1,000.

That’s even more than the top-end Matisse chip, the Ryzen 9 3950X which costs $749, but oh well premium means premium. This is the same board that was used for breaking the Cinebench and Geekbench world records, beating Intel’s 18-core i9-9980XE. So yeah, if want the best of the best (and of course have a lot of money lying around) then this is the motherboard for you.

If you’re one of the regular folks (sane), then you’ll probably stick to the X470 platform or maybe the cheaper X570 ones, but we’re still not sure exactly how “cheap” these components are going to be. Most outlets have been told that even the lowest-end offerings are going to cost quite a bit ($500+?). We’ll have to wait and see, not many days left till the review embargo lifts.
