NEWEST ADDITION TO THE PRIME SERIES
Introducing the ASUS Prime B550-PLUS, expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen processors. Ram-packed with features like the ground-breaking PCI-E 4.0 technology to give you lightning speeds, a robust power design, Type-C Rear IO connectivity, ASUS AURA RGB Header, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, Prime B550 series motherboards provide daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features.
WIDE RANGE OF PERFORMANCE AND TUNING OPTIONS
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B550 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximising your productivity.
ALL-AROUND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises your power consumption and maximizes energy savings with a simple Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down any unused I/O controllers.
NOT JUST FOR VETERANS
The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.
COOL TO THE CORE
Prime B550 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS.
MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCES
Each header can be set to monitor and react to several thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 2+ you can even assign a sensor to monitor the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards — for optimal cooling during GPU- or CPU-intensive workloads.
EXTENDED VRM HEATSINKS AND THERMAL PADS
Two massive VRM heatsinks with underneath thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
FASTER BOOTING AND APP LOAD TIMES
PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot supports up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to 64Gbps PCIe 4.0 storage device to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.
PREMIUM ASUS TECHNOLOGY
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
TRUSTWORTHY STABILITY AND COMPATIBILITY
Prime B550 series adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look.
An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your motherboard from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.
DRAM OVERCURRENT PROTECTION
On-board resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
STAINLESS-STEEL BACK I/O
Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that’s three times longer than ordinary panels.
ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection.
SUPERIOR RELIABILITY WITH 8000+ VALIDATION HOURS
ASUS motherboards offer superb endurance verified by subjecting every board to more than 8,000 hours of stringent tests. A barrage of burn-in, environmental, compatibility, software and safety tests confirm that our motherboards are exceptionally robust. It also shows that ASUS reliability surpasses industry standards, ensuring that every component is designed to function flawlessly in any environment.
