Product Description

Gigabyte AMD B550 AORUS ELITE AM4 ATX Motherboard

Rise From the Darkness

Introducing the all-new AORUS ELITE B550 Motherboard from Gigabyte. Filled with the latest technologies to take your gaming experience to the next level such as PCI-E 4.0 technology to give you better performance, bandwidth and eye-watering speeds, 2.5 GBe LAN. 2x M.2 slots, USB 3.2 Gen2 connectivity and a high-quality audio system. Illuminate your system in your own style with Gigabytes RGB Fusion software or even have supported devices be interactive with the new gaming mode to give yourself that additional immersive gaming experience. The AORUS B550 ELITE is designed to unleash the full potential of the 3rd Generation Ryzen CPUs, give your system the strongest foundations and make your friends and enemies envious of the power you now hold.

 

Keep Your Components

Cool In order to guarantee un-throttled performance Aorus have opted for an advanced thermal solution, including enlarged heatsinks, upgraded thermal conductivity pads and thermal guards meaning the B550 ELITE is capable of keeping the MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs cool and comfortable even under maximum load. Whether you're a gamer, builder or just an enthusiast you can expect lower temperatures and higher performance from the B550 ELITE.

 

M2 Thermal Guard

Built-in M.2 thermal guard heatsink helps the high-speed, large capacity of PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs to prevent overheat throttling and performance bottlenecks.

 

14 Phase Digital Power Design

In order to fully support 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen CPUs, the AORUS B550 ELITE comes equipped with the most complete power solution yet, with true direct, digital and multiple power phases, birthed from countless experiments, testing and tinkering the B550 AOROUS ELITE is built using a pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital controller and a total of 12 phases and with additional 8+4 solid-pin connectors offering incredibly precise power delivery to even the most power hungry components. The B550 AORUS ELITE will enable you to get the most out of your 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU.

 

2X COPPER PCB

GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

 

Optimised Daisy Chain Design

The AORUS B550 ELITE motherboard provides a proven speed of DDR4-4000MHz and beyond with high density memory modules*. Optimised 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 or enthusiasts a denser and faster system memory experience.

* Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.
