AMD A320 vs A520 vs B450 vs B550 Chipset Comparison – Is A520 worth it over the older similarly priced B450?

AMD has finally announced its most affordable option for the current generation of motherboards, but what does it offer over the previous generation or the overclocking friendly B550 chipset?
