ASUS launches its range of AMD B550 motherboards - B550 has something for everyone

Ready to see what B550 offers with ASUS' ROG, TUF and Prime sub-brands?



Read more about ASUS' B550 motherboard lineup.

Personally, on the ITX front I think I'll be dropping on this one (with no added graffiti as standard lol).

I am also interested in the ITX board. Current x570 ITX boards are way too expensive. The ASUS one is ~$530AUD. And the VRMs on the b450 ITX boards are not great so id prefer not to get one of those.

According to I believe Optimum Tech on Youtube, he said that the ASUS B450-I motherboard actually had good enough VRM and that there wasn't that much of an advantage to go for the X470 board due to it being just enough for overclocking etc.

Exactly my point (humour), hence the "with no added graffiti as standard" comment.

After the lack of BIOS support (it was truly dire what they offered and that comes from hands on experience) in the late stages of B450/X470 and again in the early stages of X570 (owing to losing some of their top BIOS Engineers) I personally said bye bye to Asus as a motherboard brand - Gigabyte now, in respect to motherboards and BIOS support are back to the Gigabyte of old (having learnt from their lessons of B450/X470 and no doubt someone somewhere also got a kick in the derriere).

I would totally agree with that statement above, and I was a hardcore Asus fan boy for decades. They sputtered and stalled, especially on X570. After having a Crosshair 6 Hero, then a 7 Hero, my X570 Aorus Master and X399 Aorus Xtreme have been much better experiences.

In what way have they been a much better experience exactly?...

Just very stable behavior. The CH7 Hero had 'quirks'. Like for months, I couldn't get into the BIOS with resetting the CMOS for some reason. If I tried to hit DEL to enter BIOS, it would hang the system completely. A BIOS revision eventually cured that, but it took a long time. Plus other random weirdness with PWM hubs, Asus Aura quirks, etc. As it stands *now*, my CH7 is decent, but it took a while getting there. The Aorus Master and Aorus Xtreme just never had any of that odd behavior. Everything just worked from day one. The only odd thing I saw with Gigabyte was an RGB Fusion update that clobbered my G.Skill TridentZ Royal RAM for some reason, but uninstalling and re-installing the newest version solved that pretty quick.

Prior to those two boards, I never had much experience with Gigabyte, but they've won me over with this AMD stuff (X570 / X399).
