    Considering the chip is a SoC, these boards seem ridiculously priced.

    It's got a really minimal amount of IO on the SoC though. Most of the IO on the boards is still derived from a single chip chipset, in much the same way that Intel's are. Having an SoC in the socket and a connection to an external chipset probably causes a bit of additional complexity. We also don't know what AMD is charging for that chipset. Plus the boards we have prices for are using mid-range and enthusiast chipsets, so pricing in the £75+ and £150+ segments isn't surprising. A320 boards - when they're released en masse - should be in the £40 - £75 range. It pretty much lines up with previous board prices (remembering that everything is at least 20% more expensive than last time AMD released a new chipset due to exchange rate fluctuations).

    Plus, AMD have a competitive high-end chip for the first time in over a decade. Of course mobo manufacturers are going to try to cash in on it.
