    Good to see 2.5G ethernet coming to mid range boards.

    Maybe we might even see a mATX 5 series board (!!), perhaps with 4 dimm slots (!).. From more than one maker (!).

    from the amd 3300 press release

    B550 motherboards are expected to be available beginning June 16, 2020 from ODM partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Colorful, GIGABYTE, and MSI at leading retailers and etailers.

    no idea when Australian retailers will get them

    Here's hoping mAtx form factor makes a comeback? Literally having less boards than I have fingers on one hand in b450 makes things difficult. Even more so for x470 (and I assume x570)

    Must. Resist. Buying. ASRock B550 Taichi. 3... m.2 slots...

    I thought maybe the X570 might dip in price slightly when the B550 comes out and maybe time to replace this turd Gigabyte board with the Asus X570 Hero III. But this ASRock board. Oh boy.

    A B550 ITX makes sense since it doesn't use as many PCIE lanes when you look at some of the differences between the x570 and b550. Holding out for one in preparation for zen3 for sure

    From techpowerup : ASRock B550 Taichi is arguably the most premium B550 of this lot. It appears to have the strongest CPU VRM solution, pulling power from two 8-pin EPS connectors, a 16-phase VRM, full front and back metal shrouds, completely reinforced PCIe and memory slots, PCI-Express 4.0 x16 (x8/x8) multi-GPU capability, and a trio of M.2 slots. 802.11ax + 2.5 GbE is standard issue. Lastly, there's the BIOSTAR Racing B550 GTQ, a mid-range Micro-ATX board that covers all the platform basics.



    Looking at Asrocks site it says 1x hyper M.2, 1x Ultra M.2 and only 2x standoffs and screws in accessory pack. Also says Asrock U.2 compatible.

    Pretty sure ive read several sites claim 3x M.2 slots....


    The Aorus B550 Master has 3x M.2.

    Apparently the Chip-set is PCIe3.0 or something? I don't understand how that will affect the m.2 or gpu speed in the system.

    Chipset is PCIe 3 for cpu link. Still has NVMe PCIe 4.0 available off the cpu its just all further down stream only at PCIe 3.0 x. So it wont affect GPU or Gen 4 PCIe NVMe drive x 1.

    You can have 1 x PCIE4 NVMe on a board. All other NVMe on b550 will be PCI3.
    Hardly a big limitation.

    PCI3 is a limitation when it comes to data centres. Because of AMD's vertical approach it gets introduced across the stack.
    For the home user, PCI4 storage or video cards aren't expected to bring meaningful performance increase in the current generation..

    Yes my concern was if the chipset is limited to PCIe3.0 then maybe it will bottleneck the board and your performance will be 3.0 even tho it connects at 4.0.. guess we will see how reviews go.

    My biggest issue with x570 boards was the heatsink and fan requirements to cool them. Those fans love to fail and people have already reported broken boards due to it :(

    i wonder if those een weeny fans are even necessary. you might get around it by having decent intake fans at the front of a typical case.
    for the x570 chipset heatsink. anyway. not my problem.
