B460/H410 Chipset Shortages?

There’s a report out from MyDrivers states that Intel is having problems supplying the market with mainstream B460 and H410 chipsets. This could lead to price hikes among these boards reflecting rising costs to get these chipsets:

Sources from the supply chain claim that the supply of motherboard chipsets has become tight at the end of the year. On the one hand, PCBs and various electronic components are out of stock and price increases, and the other is that Intel ’s 400 series chips are tight.

Specifically, the supply of high-end Z490 series chipsets is acceptable, but the mainstream B460 , H410 and other chipsets are seriously out of stock. Motherboard manufacturers have already limited supply during Double 11 this year . December is the last wave of shipments. Supply will be severely short after January.

ASUS Adds Resizable BAR Support to Z490, H470 & B460 Motherboards

Resizable BAR (Base Address Register), the technology behind AMD’s Smart Access Memory (SAM), isn’t exclusive to Ryzen owners anymore. Asus has released an entire wave of new firmwares for various Z490 motherboards that enable the Resizable BAR feature.

The firmware, which sports the 1002 version number, is fresh out of the oven as Asus evidently uploaded it just yesterday. The firmware is currently in the beta stage so there might be some bugs here and there. It also lacks a detailed description of the changes. We can, however, confirm that the 1003 firmware effectively brings support for Resizable BAR, as evidenced by the newly added “Above 4G Decoding” and “Re-Size BAR Support” options in our ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard’s BIOS.

The MSI MAG B460M Mortar WiFi—let’s just call it the Mortar—is a Micro ATX board with a feature list we consider to be very competitive. Though looks are obviously subjective, I think it’s a very nice looking board with solid metal heatsinks and a rather subtle, perhaps even utilitarian theme. There are no RGB LEDs on the board itself but you do get RGB and ARGB connectors if you absolutely must have the bling.

The ASRock B460 Steel Legend is an awesomely named mid-range B460 entry. At $120 USD it’s what we’d call a mid-range B460 board.

You get a pair of heatsink covered M.2 slots, an e-key M.2 slot for an optional Wi-Fi card, a front USB Type-C header and a good helping of RGB onboard, plus an additional two RGB headers and two ARGB headers.
