Before start we would like to spend few words about AMD’s chipsets regarding socket AM4. So far there are three different chipsets available: the X370, the B350 and the A320. The first addresses the high-end market, while the second and the third target the mid-end and the entry-level segment. The X370 is therefore the flagship model providing overclocking features and two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for SLI or Crossfire setups. As mentioned before, the B350 is for the mid-range market and the main difference to the X370 is the PCIe lanes, the USB ports and the SATA ports. The A320 chipset is an entry-level chipset and with this chipset you can’t do overclocking and furthermore there are only the essential ports available. All the new chipsets feature native M.2 NVMe support, SATA Express, PCIe 3.0, DDR4 memory and USB 3.1 ports.
