Asus B550 motherboards have started selling now. Recall that it is focused on the creation of mid-budget boards, while it has support for PCIe 4.0.
Asus has decided to add at least four models with this logic set support for HDMI 2.1 and even Thunderbolt 3. Asus B550 motherboards are value-focused, which support for PCIe 4.0 to the lower end of the market.
Apparently, HDMI 2.1 support is generally available on all Asus motherboards with the B550 chipset, but the Thunderbolt 3 port is available only on the ROG family models. True, there is a nuance: Thunderbolt 3 is not displayed on the rear panel but is present in the form of a pin connector soldered on the board itself.
Asus ROG Strix B550 provides robust power delivery to fuel Ryzen’s cores, comprehensive cooling, and support for faster memory, so it has everything you need to load up your build with high-performance components for playing in the big leagues.
The motherboards including the next-generation distorted ROG eye logo and recessed cybertext patterning etched on the I/O shroud. These new designs move ROG Strix boldly into the future, while clearly reflecting the series’ gaming roots.
ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking but goes further by running a Prime95-based stress test that continually monitors the system.
To provide AMD’s latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, motherboard trace routing has been reimagined with the ROG Strix B550. Integrated OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across PCB layers to reduce vias, and it also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. To further enhance the overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, a highly customized Daisy Chain layout delivers time-aligned signaling.
