New options are on the way for prospective Ryzen 7000 Series users who want to enter AMD’s new AM5 platform at a lower price point. According to a filing that can be found at the EEC, GIGABYTE is planning to launch at least five new motherboards with the A620 chipset, a cheaper alternative to the existing X670 and B650 series. All of these appear to be AORUS branded.
From an EEC filing:
GIGABYTE, AORUS brand motherboards, models: B560M DS3H PLUS, B760M K, B650M K, A620M D3H, A620M DS3H, A620M S2H, A620M H, A620M K, A520M K V2.

- A620M DS3H
- A620M S2H
- A620M H
- A620M K
AMD X670(E) and X650(E) motherboards are available immediately for those who are seeking greater performance and a wider set of features. The former offers up to 44 PCIe lanes and up to two 20 Gbps USB ports, while the latter offers up to 36 PCIe lanes and up to a single 20 Gbps USB port, according to a comparison slide from AMD. A620 motherboards will presumably offer notably less than that, including lack of PCIe 5.0 support.
