Asus’s upcoming AM4-based motherboards have apparently been listed online, and are currently available for pre-order on an Australian retailer website (Eyo Technologies). These motherboards are, of course, made to be paired with AMD’s upcoming Ryzen processors.
There are, in total, four Asus AM4-based motherboards that are currently being listed on Eyo Technologies’ website. These are the Asus Prime B350M-A, Prime B350-Plus, Prime X370-Pro, and Crosshair VI Hero. Interestingly, Guru3D mentioned that these motherboards will be made available for purchase on 24 February, which is just about a week away from now.
The most ‘affordable’ motherboard of the four would be the Asus Prime B350M-A. According to the aforementioned retailer’s website, this motherboard will come with a price tag of AUD128.70 (about RM439). Aside from its listed price, not much else is known about the features of the Prime B350M-A.
Next up is the Asus Prime B350M-Plus, which I believe comes with more added features compared to the B350M-A. Despite this, the motherboard is still adequately priced at AUD152.60 (around RM519). Asus’ next motherboard is one that comes with a X370 chipset. Dubbed as the Prime X370-Pro, this motherboard is priced at AUD245.85 (approximately RM838).
The most ‘expensive’ and probably most powerful Asus AM4-based motherboard listed on Eyo Technologies’ website would be the Crosshair VI Hero. Like the Prime X370-Pro, this motherboard is also fitted with a X370 chipset. The Asus Crosshair VI Hero motherboard comes with a price tag of AUD380.63 (about RM1,298).
It’s worth noting, however, that the prices of Asus’s AM4 motherboards listed in this article may not necessarily be reflected in Malaysia. Knowing this, it’s wise for one to at least expect all four motherboards to be priced slightly more when they arrive in our shores – due to taxes and other miscellaneous fees.
