AMD is so, so very close to the unveiling of its next-gen Ryzen CPUs and now we're finally hearing about what I've personally said is the most important part of Ryzen's success: motherboard prices.
ASUS will have 4 motherboards ready for Ryzen processors on February 24, with the ASUS Prime B350M-A priced at $69, the Prime B350-PLUS at $89, the Prime X370-PRO at $149, and finally, the higher-end Crosshair VI Hero priced at just $209.
Doubled with the fact that you can pick up a 6C/12T Ryzen 5 1600X for $259, or the higher-end 8C/16T Ryzen 7 1700X for $389... these motherboard prices are great. It's going to open up a world of enthusiast gaming for people who don't have the money to sink into an expensive X99-based platform from Intel for the 10C/20T processors.
