Anyone buying a new one AMD Ryzen 4000 processor with Zen 3 architecture toying, needs a compatible motherboard. The right selection will increase shortly.

In cooperation with various hardware manufacturers, AMD has presented a series of new mainboards with a B550 chipset. The boards are supposed to according to Wccftech be available as a cheap alternative to X570 models from June 16, 2020 and support the following features:

  • Support for Ryzen 4000 (“Vermeer”) and Ryzen 3000 (“Matisse”)
  • 20 usable PCIe 4.0 lanes
  • up to two native USB 3.2 Gen2 ports
  • up to six native USB 3.2 Gen1 ports
  • up to six native USB 2.0 ports
  • up to eight SATA ports
  • Support for overclocking, XFR2 and Precision Boost Overdrive

Difference to the X570 chipset: In contrast to X570 boards, the PCI Express 4.0 support for the B550 mainboards is not via the chipset, but rather via the appropriate Ryzen 3000 CPU. Older Ryzen models (Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 1000) do not run on B550 boards, according to AMD. The X570 chipset also provides more USB 3.2 ports (Gen2) and SATA ports.

Which manufacturers offer B550 motherboards?

ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock and Biostar will be offering various B550 models with varying configurations from mid-June 2020:

B550 motherboards from ASUS

B550 motherboards from Gigabyte

B550 motherboards from MSI

B550 motherboards from ASRock

B550 motherboards from Biostar

The exact prices for the mainboards are not yet clear. However, we assume that the price range will be in the range of the B450 models. So the chances are good that PCI Express 4.0 can soon be used with mainboards for less than 100 euros.
