Asus TRX50 Motherboard Shocks with $1,100 Price Tag

Asus TRX50 Motherboard Shocks with $1,100 Price Tag

AMD’s Threadripper 7000 has been well-received by the PC world, but the excitement may be short-lived if the TRX50 motherboards are as expensive as a recent retail listing suggests. The Asus TRX50-Sage WiFi motherboard was listed for nearly $1,100, which is more in line with workstation pricing than HEDT pricing.

While Threadripper 3000 CPUs didn’t have cheap motherboards, the highest-end models were around $700, with many good models available for $500. The TRX50 board’s price is comparable to workstation-class WRX80E boards for Threadripper Pro 5000 WX-series CPUs, but lacks workstation features like octa-channel memory. However, it’s possible that this listing doesn’t represent all TRX50 motherboards or even the Asus TRX50-Sage WiFi. The listing was only a screenshot and it’s unclear which retailer made it. It’s not a well-known store like Amazon, Newegg, or B&H Photo.

The price tag itself is quite peculiar, as it stands at an exact amount of $1,087.96. Generally, motherboards, whether designed for HEDT or workstations, tend to have average price points. For instance, Asus’s Pro WS WRX80E-Sage SE is priced at $999. Considering this, along with the fact that the motherboard is currently out of stock, it is plausible to assume that the listed price may not accurately reflect its true value.

It is not uncommon for retailers to list PC components that have not yet been released, often accompanied by inflated prices that can be misleading. It would be highly unusual for AMD to introduce a $1,500 CPU that would require a $1,000 motherboard. Therefore, it is possible that this particular listing does not provide an accurate indication of the upcoming TRX50 motherboard’s actual price. If this is indeed the case, it is uncertain how well the Threadripper 7000 series will be received, potentially only garnering a lukewarm response.
