Asus

Another month into 2021, and AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors are still thin on the ground, especially the high-core count parts. The more affordable models, such as the Ryzen 7 5800X ($449) and Ryzen 5 5600X ($399), are slowly coming back into stock. While we occasionally see the higher core count CPUs listed for ridiculous prices it doesn't make much sense to hold out much hope of stock levels increasing any time soon. Much better value may be better found in its Ryzen 3000 offerings, and we give our picks out of AMD's wide-stretching AM4 offerings to support these. With X570, B550, and the A520 chipsets leading the way for AMD, here are AMD-based motherboard selections for April 2021.
