GIGABYTE AORUS series motherboards use a 10+3 phases pure digital PWM + Low RDS(on) MOSFETs design 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.
GIGABYTE realize that customer won't stop chasing a better computing performance. We take care of it and implement on products. Adopting Daisy Chain, apply PCIe 4.0 components to get B550 motherboards ready to enter next generation and get 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.
ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the advanced thermal solution which including Heatsinks and Thermal Guards. B550 motherboards are cool on MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs even on full loading. It provides lower temperatures for users.
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 and storage to keep you up to speed.
