MSI introduces the A320 Grenade Socket AM4 Motherboard

Today MSI introduced the A320 Grenade, a gaming-grade entry-level socket AM4 motherboard based on AMD’s A320 chipset. The A320 Grenade is built on the narrow micro-ATX form-factor and features a simple 5-phase VRM design for Ryzen 5 and 3 series CPUs. The board comes with two DDR4 DIMM slots instead for four and a single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot with two PCI-Express 2.0 x1 slot. The A320 Grenade draws power from 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors.


Storage connectivity includes four SATA 6 Gbps ports, from which two are wired to the SoC, and one 32 Gbps M.2 slot. Other connectivity includes four USB 3.0 ports (four on the rear panel, two via headers). Gigabit Ethernet (driven by Realtek RTL8111H controller) and 6-channel HD audio (Realtek ALC887 CODEC), make for the rest of it. The A320 Grenade expected to be priced around the $75 mark.
