MSI Now Supports the Ryzen 7 5800X3D (Fastest Gaming CPU) on its $60 A320 Motherboards

MSI has released support for AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D on its budget and entry-level motherboards. These include the X370, B350, and the paltry A320 boards that were launched along with the 1st Gen Ryzen processors back in 2017. In addition to being easily accessible, the 300-series lineup is insanely cheap. The A320 boards start as low as $59.99.

At the same time, it’s important to note that while these motherboards will support the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the performance may be a smidge lower. You’ll also be limited in terms of I/O as these chipsets come with 4, 6, and 8 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, and 4-8 SATA ports. Overclocking is supported on the B350 and X370 with ample USB ports on all three. This is a very consumer-friendly move from AMD, one that will not only earn good PR but sell a ton of its new CPUs as well. Being the fastest gaming processor (under $500), the 5800X3D is in high demand as noted by etailers, and getting an A320 board is as cheap as buying a new game. Therefore, unlike Intel’s Core i9-12900K, gamers won’t be restricted by pricey motherboards or memory, thereby driving sales left and right.
