Performance

10*+3 Phases Digital Twin Power Design

B550 motherboard use a 10+3 phases Digital Twin Power Design with Low RDS(on) MOSFETs to support the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ CPUs by offering incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability.

* 5+5 phases parallel power design

Connectivity

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.

Dual NVMe PCIe 4.0*/3.0 M.2 Connectors

With NVMe PCIe 4.0*/3.0 x4 and PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 connectors onboard, GIGABYTE Motherboards bring users to experience NVMe mode or SATA mode connectivity for M.2 SSD devices. Delivering up to 64 Gb/s data transfer speed, the dual M.2 connectors design provides an ideal storage solution while also supporting in RAID modes.

*Actual support may vary by CPU.

Cooling

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.

Lighting

High-End Audio Capacitors

GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers.

Audio Noise Guard

GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level.

Ultra Durable

Q-Flash Plus

Update the BIOS easily without installing the CPU, memory and graphics card.

With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don’t need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file (rename to gigabyte.bin) on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button and you’re good to go!

Solid Pin Power Connectors

B550 motherboards feature solid plated ATX 12V 8pin power connectors for offering stable power supply while CPU overloading.

Solid Pin Power connector advantages

  • Larger contact area for electricity
  • More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
  • Ultra durable and longer lifespan

START SULFURIZATION PROTECTION

Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.

I initially picked this board, but then read up on the gen4 m.2 ssd promotion & learnt it will throttling performance if it gets too hot, which will happen as it didn't come with a descent heatsink. So instead swapped it for Gigabyte B550 AORUS ELITE ATX. Anyone in the same boat, I highly recommend the latter bought. You can read my review on sthis site for that board or obviously run a comparision yourself.

This fantastic motherboard is perfect for a mid range to high end gaming system. It has a really good design, it has all the connectivity you could possibly need (including the new usb C internal connector) and it's a very good price compared to the competitors! Delivery of the product by CCL online was quick and the item was well packaged as usual. Very happy!
