The prices for motherboards is totally out of control. I understand that inflation is a thing, as are supply chain constraints. But really? I remember the days when I could get a good board for $190...
So, they're going from a high end X570S motherboard (not counting the MEG) costing $400 to a low end X670E motherboard costing $670? AM5 is shaping up to me to be a Lucy's Folley, with high prices and marginal IPC improvement over Zen 3 which don't thrash Intel to justify it.
What is the relative price in that page for the current stuff?
I found the Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus WiFi for €500, so these prices are inflated.
Going forward, whenever someone "leaks" pricing, please do due diligence if the site does show reasonable/comparable pricing with other things before posting? This is starting to smell like FUD when it's not too hard to double check and report on it.
This is bleeping criminal! What a joke, an extra $600 or so for a few USB4 ports? Them are some expensive ports are they encrusted in diamonds? Or was it the M.2 110 slots that more than doubled the price?
This just makes me hate AMD more, I mean Intel & board makers are guilty too.
I know someone's gonna say "well their compatible with DDR4 & DDR5 memory, lol like that makes a difference if it's even true.
"Extremely sophisticated voltage regulating modules that will be able to deliver hundreds of watts to CPUs to maximize overclocking potential"
You mean overclocking potential with the ability to ONLY downvolt & not increase the voltage? This leak has to be untrue though cause if it's not it's a dealbreaker for sure, if the price isn't already. smh
