Overview

In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently anticipates the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.

To fully support the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors, B550 AORUS motherboards equip with the ultimate power solution which is power balanced, digital and multiple phases. After countless experiments and testing, GIGABYTE presents the unbeatable B550 AORUS motherboards for enthusiast. No Compromise and never stop to achieve higher.

12*+2 Phases Digital Twin Power Design

  • Digital PWM Controller delivers appropriate voltage to the CPU
  • With 12+2 Phases 50A DrMOS, each power phase connects to the CPU and provides more balanced and efficient power delivery. With capability to handle up to 700 Amps current in a total
  • All-solid capacitors to improve Transient response and minimize oscillation
  • 24pin+8pin Solid Pin CPU Power Connectors

B550 AORUS ELITE V2 motherboard uses a 12+2 phases Digital Twin Power Design which includes PWM controller, DrMOS and Ferrite core choke as high quality selected components. These 100% digital controller offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors.

*6+6 Phases parallel power design

2X Copper PCB

GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE

GIGABYTE realize that customer won't stop chasing a better computing performance. We take care of it and implement on products. Protective and optimized memory trace enhance the performance. Faster read and write are needed to save time and improve efficiency. We offer plenty of M.2 storage with thermal guards to ensure unthrottled read and write. In advance, adopting PCIe 4.0 ready components get the B550 motherboards easier to upgrade.

Memory Layout - Daisy Chain Design

With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the B550 motherboard provides a proven speed of DDR4-4000MHz and beyond with high density memory modules*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.

* Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.

AORUS' unique design can be configured in RAID for record speeds of up to 6560 MB/s (Sequential Read), making AORUS the obvious choice for the ultimate PC.

Advanced Thermal Solution

Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the advanced thermal solution which including Enlarged Heatsinks, High Quality Thermal Conductivity Pads and Thermal Guards. B550 motherboards are cool on MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs even on full loading. It provides lower temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.

GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard

With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.

Smart Fan 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.

Next Generation Connectivity

A high-end product needs to be future-proof so your system stays up-to-date with the latest technology. B550 AORUS motherboards provide all next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to speed.

2.5GbE LAN Onboard

Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least two times faster transfer speeds as compared to general 1GbE networking. It’s perfectly suit for gamers and streamer with ultimate and smooth online experience. It also backward compatible with Multi-Gig (10/100/1000/2500Mbps)of RJ-45 ethernet.

USB Type-C™ Front Panel Connector

Equipped with next generation connectivity, AORUS Gaming Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C™ header for USB 3.2 Gen1 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.2 Gen1 device or charging your mobile device.

HDMI 2.1 for 4K / 60P / 21:9 / HDCP 2.3 Support

HDMI 2.1, which is backwards compatible with HDMI 2.0/ 1.4 and offering 48 Gb/s of bandwidth – twice times more than previous generation. This unlocks the potential for users to transfer multiple video streams, as well as a native cinematic 21:9 ratio (which most movies are shot in), Full HDR and HDCP 2.3 support, to offer the best visual experience for viewers.

Note: Only New Gen AMD Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Graphics processors support displaying function

HI-FI AUDIO SYSTEM

For enthusiasts, sound quality is just as essential to the gaming experience. B550 motherboards are equipped with high quality audio components such as Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors to provide a superb audio experience. The exclusive AORUS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.

High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors

The AORUS motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end audio capacitors. While the high-end audio capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AOURS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.

Fully capable motherboard with newer B550 chipset and hence PIC-E version 4 which I will make use of in the future. Really nice build quality as always. BIOS interface is much improved over the years with Q-Flash needed as BIOS version shipped was F1 and Ryzen 5600x not supported until F10. Very easy with a USB drive. Overclock really simple with manual settings, very happy so far.

Great motherboard, very solid build and lots of connectivity. Few things to note - only 5 fan headers (3x system, 1x CPU, 1x "CPU OPT" but that's useful as a fan too). There are a few RGB and ARGB headers but the build in RGB detailing is VERY dim - through my slightly smoky case window you can barely see it. With a clear case it may be better, but any other RGB will drown it out immediately. It's also good to know that the RAM slots are fairly close to the CPU, so the stock AMD cooler I got with my 3600 covers one slot if you install it the logical way up!
