Looks amazing i might actually just grab one if its priced well i expect B550 to cost $100-200, We could probably sell our boards for a good half that amount anyways and move to the newest chipset. $199.99 is most likely the price i mean this is built extremely well might even go above that this looks like a X470 Taichi board with some PCI-E 5.0 love. With no yucky loud chipset fan under the GPU.
Looks like the Tomahawk might have some competition this time around.
Why did the x570 need a fan b550 still has a PCI-E 4.0 M.2 slot and a PCI-E X16 4.0 slot directly connected with the CPU?
Amd needs to heavily do this for AM5-Now that they are bigger and matter again maybe motherboard manufactures will listen at least for some freaking guidelines.
Demand 4 phase or better VRM none of this 3 phase with doublers crap. (So many X370/B350 boards let alone A20 boards couldn't handle a 1800X without bottlenecking) due to cheap VRM components and useless aluminum blocks
Try and fight for real heatsinks with spread not useless aluminum blocks. With Plastic over them and pretty lights.
32+MB Bios chips on ALL X70 models let the mainstream(A20,B50) parts get the 16MB chips
Support DDR5 and AM5 for 5 years of support say from day one this x70 chipset will work 5 years from now on our newest CPU. Rarely does a board itself limit the CPU performance unless its artificially
Edit just saw the Taichi B550 come with 64MB Bios chip
