The MSI B660 motherboard lineup will consist of four MAG series motherboards and six PRO series motherboards. The MAG series motherboards will include the Tomahawk WiFi for $259 US, B660M Mortar WiFi for $239 US, B660M Mortar for $219 US & B660M Bazooka for $199 US. It looks like the MAG lineup will target the $200-$260 US price range while the PRO series will max out at $209 US.
Coming to the PRO series, the MSI B660-A will be priced at $209 US, B660M-A WiFi will be priced at $209 US, B660M-A will be priced at $189 US, B660M-G will be priced at $139 US, B660M-B will retail for $129 US while the most entry-level product, the B660M-E will be priced at $119 US. The source also reports that all of these motherboards feature support for DDR5 memory which makes things interesting since the B660 series will support XMP overclocking & will be able to take advantage of the higher frequencies that DDR5 has to offer though pricing and availability of DDR5 memory still is a point of concern for entry-level builders.
Overall, MSI looks set to offer an interesting lineup of B660 motherboards and the pricing actually looks quite decent. The Tomahawk will definitely be the main highlight of the lineup along with the Mortar and Bazooka as they are some of MSI’s most popular and best-selling motherboards & with Intel’s Alder Lake mainstream chips hitting the street in a few months, expect them to pair up nicely & offer some great performance positioning in the mainstream segment as AMD’s Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 offerings. Expect more details on the motherboards in the coming weeks.
