Speculations surrounding the specifications of AMD’s upcoming A620 chipset have been circulating after details were posted on Twitter by a reliable source, @g01d3nm4ng0. The A620 chipset is said to be a stripped-down version of the B650 chipset, which has been delayed. The A620 will offer the same PCIe lane counts as the B650, but with slower PCIe 3.0 speeds instead of PCIe 4.0. It’s unclear if the B650’s PCIe 3.0 will remain intact.
The A620 will have a total of eight usable PCIe lanes, including four that are connected to the CPU and limited to PCIe 3.0 speeds. SATA port configurations and the number of USB 3.x ports have not been confirmed. The chipset will feature two 10 Gbps and two 5 Gbps USB 3.x ports and six USB 2.0 ports. The lanes from the CPU in A620 motherboards will reportedly only support PCIe 4.0. CPU overclocking is said to be missing, but RAM overclocking will remain available.
