Here's what you need to know about AMD's B550 chipset

A lot is changing with B550.

Some really nice looking boards in there ! Love the new Strix. Looks like they removed all of that "gamery" crap they added on the 450 which the 350 didn't have.

Good spec too, very solid. Looks like they are definitely taking the fight to Intel over chipsets.

I will certainly be looking to get myself a b550 if they are priced right but I do have to ask

When compared to B450, B550 offers users support for dual-graphics card setup
Have AMD stated that they are re-igniting support for Crossfire and bringing it to future GPU's?
Can't see many MB manufactures paying out for SLI licencing or consumers paying the additional for it either and Nvidia are slowly killing this off so this seems to me like a pointless addition?

I would imagine that side of it is more postured toward the people who like to encode and etc. Or render or what not.

For most people, the main benefit will be extra versatility with PCIe lanes. A single X16 lane will be able to split into to 8x lanes for multi-GPU support or better I/O options.

Basically, B550 is now as versatile as X470, with added PCIe 4.0 support on straight to CPU PCIe lanes.
