AMD

The second quarter of 2020 has been nothing short of busy with copious of chipset launches. We've had Z490 from Intel, and the long-anticipated debut of AMD's budget-focused B550 chipset. With Coronavirus dominating headlines in the first half of 2020, it's been an interesting one for the tech industry due to the cancellation of all technology trade shows, so announcements that would usually fall within this time, have fallen either before or after. In contrast to previous motherboard buyers guides of late, we've decided to split the guide in half and opt for separate Intel and AMD guides. Welcome to our Best AMD Motherboards buyers guide for July 2020.
