AMD B550 Motherboard Pre-Orders go Live: Starting US$114

The pre-orders for AMD’s B550 motherboards have finally gone live, with the launch date of 16th June rapidly approaching. Newegg has listed most of the upcoming B550 boards with a starting price of just $114. The higher-end models such as the ASRock B550 Taichi and the Aorus Master cost well over $250. Luckily, there are a bunch of well-balanced boards in the $150 to $200 range as well. The ROG Strix B550-F Gaming is one such example.

Even the cheapest boards starting at $114 such as the B550 Phantom come with support for up to 128GB of DDR4-4533 RAM, dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots, 6x SATA 6Gb ports and USB 3.2 Gen 2.

Higher up the ladder, the Aorus Master and Strix come with near X570-level features at nearly half the price. As AMD preps to launch the Ryzen 3000 refresh and the Zen 3 based Ryzen 4000 processors, these boards will become the next B450s.
