Recently, Danish retailers leaked the price of AMD Ryzen 3000 processor and X570 motherboards of major motherboard manufacturers. The price of the processor is no suspense. But the price of X570 motherboards is still surprising. The price of high-end X570 is generally more than $450. As some of the manufacturers said in the past,
“The X570 motherboard will no longer be cheaper!”

AMD X570 motherboards pricing
This simply means that the Indian pricing for the high-end X570 motherboards would be around 30-35K INR. This is definitely costly for a lot of buyers but gamers and performance enthusiasts looking to buy the latest and greatest would definitely buy this!
The reason why the X570 motherboard can be sold at a high price is because of the advanced technical specifications. In particular, PCIe 4.0 is amongst the primary reasons. AMD is very focused on the Ryzen 3000 and X570 platforms. They have provided a total of 44 PCIe 4.0 channels, the total availability would, of course, vary from model to model and OEM to OEM.
AMD X570 motherboards and B550, A520 chipsets
The X570 motherboard is going to be expensive, and many buyers will inevitably expect more mainstream 500 series chipsets – B550 and A520 can also support PCIe 4.0, but unfortunately, these two chipsets may not get that capability. These two chipsets will only be on PCIe 3.0, cutting off PCIe 4.0 support.
But then, consumers should not completely give up hope, B550, A520 chipset is not on the PCIe 4.0 that does not mean B550 / A520 motherboard would be a really bad choice. Because for AMD for the PCIe 4.0 support is divided into two parts. Out of the 44 PCIe 4.0 channels among them, 24 are from the Ryzen 3000 processor, and 16 are provided by the X570 chipset itself.
In other words, as long as there’s a Ryzen 3000 processor, there are theoretically 24 PCIe 4.0 channels, 16 are allocated and another 8 are flexibly assigned. If the motherboard manufacturers are willing to do so, the B550 /A520 motherboards can also be on PCIe 4.0.
The road ahead!
The current problem depends on the choice of the motherboard manufacturer. Considering that PCIe 4.0 still has certain requirements for the motherboard PCB, it will increase the final cost. Whether the motherboard manufacturer gives the PCIe 4.0 on the B550/A520 motherboards or not is something that is still to be seen!
