ASRock B560M-HDV-A & B560M-HDV

Another series of micro-ATX motherboards within ASRock's B560 stack includes the B560M-HDV-A and the B560M-HDV. Both models are visually identical with grey and black patterned printed PCBs, with a small silver chipset heatsink, but includes no heatsinks for the power delivery. The only difference between both models is that the B560M-HDV-A comes with an M.2 Key-E slot for users to install a wireless interface.

The ASRock B560M-HDV-A micro-ATX motherboard

Both models include just one full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, as well as two M.2 slots. One of the M.2 slots is PCIe 4.0 x4 enabled, while the other includes support for both PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA drives. ASRock also includes four SATA ports, two with straight-angled and two with right-angled slots, with all four featuring support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. The ASRock B560M-HDV-A and B560M-HDV have just two memory slots, with support for up to DDR4-5000 and a total capacity of up to 64 GB.

The ASRock B560M-HDV-A rear panel (with M.2 Key-E slot)

The rear panel of both models includes four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A and two USB 2.0 ports. The only difference is that the A version includes an M.2 Key-E slot for users to install a wireless interface, which is located next to the three 3.5 mm audio jacks which are powered by a Realtek ALC897 HD audio codec. ASRock also includes three video outputs including a D-sub, DVI-D, and HDMI, with one PS/2 combo port for legacy keyboard and mice. Last on the rear panel of both boards is one Ethernet port driven by an Intel I219-V Gigabit controller.

At the time of writing, ASRock hasn't given us any information on the price of the B560M-HDV-A, although we do know the B560M-HDV has an MSRP of $75.

    With pricing like that for both motherboards and cpus, and good availability Intel is becoming a great value option.
    Personally I don't see why I'd choose AMD cpu in 200-350USD bracket with local prices.

    "Intel great value option" LOL. How the mighty have fallen.

    @ballsystemlord: Or in other words how AMD starts price gouging and becoming more anti-consumer. How the "value brand" is now too expensive for the average customers.

    (not disagreeing with you. Just showing the other side of the reality.)

    If it wasn't for AMD you might be in one of these Intel "value" motherboards, only you'd be paying 2x-3x as much for you were about 4 years ago, remember? And there's no question that if it wasn't for AMD you'd be paying *huge sums* for ~14nm++++++++++++++++++++ CPUs Intel is selling now for bargain-basement prices *because* of AMD. Don't you realize that if not for AMD you'd be paying more, though the nose, for inferior components? Have you even checked to see that Z590 motherboards are ~$1k and up and can't even provide system-wide PCIe4 bus coverage? Heck, that's more expensive than the most expensive x570 motherboards. Welcome to the real side of reality....;) Without AMD there would be no competition in these markets at all and Intel would be selling the same--likely worse garbage--at stratospheric prices.

    Everything you said is provably false

    you sure about that ? i guess you forgot the wonderful <10% gen on gen performance increases we were getting before Zen was released, and the ever increasing prices for that performance ? or the fact that mainstream was stuck on quad core cpus and you NEEDED to get intel HEDT cpus to get anything more then 4 cores ?
  • RanFodar - Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - link

    Tbf what AMD did to competition back then doesn't mean it's an excuse for them to copy Intel's playbook in the past. They can maintain their value position, but even the lowest Ryzen 5000 SKU is a bit overpriced for consumers here in the Philippines. Maybe Intel needs to thank AMD for being in such a position that is desired for consumers.

    Even the 3000 series? I've seen the 3000 series for pretty good prices around the world, the 5000 is supply constrained and demand outstrips supply so there is no reason to lower the price....That's how markets work
  • jabber - Wednesday, March 31, 2021 - link

    I remember not that long ago an AMD 'budget board' would have HDMI/eSATA/Toslink/6 USB ports (some USB3) and decent audio chip etc. and the Intel budget board would give you just VGA/PS2/ serial, a couple of USB2 and a parallel port instead. Terrible.
  • cxtalxg - Wednesday, May 5, 2021 - link

    Such a dumb argument, you do realize than intel had massive generations jumps from core 2 duo, to intel core 1st gen, then second gen. While amds overpriced phenoms flopped. All these companies are the same, lack of competition means lack of advancement
