Amd B550 motherboards are a very popular choice for gamers looking for a price/performance ratio. In addition, motherboard vendors such as AMD and MSI have established close partnerships to provide up to $60 worth of Steam vouchers for users who purchase board and CPU combinations.
Currently, AMD X570 boards are overpriced, so many players prefer to locate the mid-range B550 board, which allows more cash to be reserved for more powerful CPUs. Citingmedia Tom’s Hardware, more than 60 full batch manufacturers are expected to go on sale on June 16.
It is reported that the AMD B550 will cover the mini-ITX to microATX and standard ATX sizes, in terms of price, the base model is priced at $114.99, with an 8-phase electronic system, two M.2 slots and two PCIe slots (top PCIe slot and M.2 slot support PCIe 4.0). If you want on-board Wi-Fi, you’ll have to pay at least $10 more.
With the mini-ITX motherboard, you get two memory slots that can support up to 64GB of memory, and you can expect to pay more than $199 for a more compact design. The ATX and microATX variants offer four slots that provide up to 128 GB of memory.
By far the most expensive B550 motherboard is the $299 Asrock Taichi model, which offers an enhanced power transmission subsystem with a 16-phase, which is especially useful for those who want to overclock.
