|B550MX/E PRO Overview
AMD B550 chipset
AMD B550 is the high-end chipset for overclockers and tweakers who need robust platforms. This chip provides the ultimate low-level control to its users and delivers
ultimate graphics card bandwidth.It also supports PCI-E Gen4 bandwidth
Provides high quality sound with minimal loss of audio fidelity.
Hi-Fi Ground ( Golden Line ) is noise-blocking multi-layer PCB design to isolates analog audio signals from digital sources. Unique PCB layout is ideal for exceptional clarity and high fidelity sound.
HDMI 2.0 supports true 4K resolution- 4096*2160@60hz. A significant increase in bandwidth is up to 18mbps, and significant enhancements are added to support the
continued increase consumer demands on video and audio experience.
DVI is better than VGA for LCD displays since it is digital while VGA is analog. For LCD displays, the picture is digitized pixel per pixel. Through DVI, the panel gets data for each pixel, so the picture generated in the Graphics device matches the pixels on the panel itself.
DirectX 12 introduces the next version of Direct3D, the graphics API at the heart of DirectX. Direct3D is one of the most critical pieces of a game or game engine, and we've redesigned it to be faster and more efficient than ever before. Direct3D 12 enables richer scenes, more objects, and full utilization of modern GPU hardware.
Integrated HDMI with HDCP Onboard HDMI connector allows full video & audio support. It has industry-leading high definition video quality.
PCIe M.2 32Gb/s is the latest storage interface, it delivers the highest bandwidth and lower latency. It's 3 times faster compared with PCIe M.2 10Gb/s.
PCIe Gen 3.0
PCIe 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCIe 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
SATAIII 6Gbps provides a higher bandwidth to retrieve and transfer HD media. With this super speed data transfer, SATAIII allows an incredible data boost which is 2x faster than the SATA II.
The primary advantages of DDR4 over DDR3, include higher module density, lower voltage requirements, coupled with higher data transfer rate.
PCIe 4.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 16GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCIe 3.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
PCIe M.2 4.0
PCIe M.2 4.0 is the latest storage interface, it delivers the highest bandwidth and lower latency. It is 2 times faster compared with PCIe M.2 3.0.
USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
USB 3.2 Gen1 delivers a compelling performance boosts and can be used to connect multiple devices without worrying about compatibility. It is capable of data transfer
speeds up to 5Gbps and backwards compatible with all existing USB products.
Digital PWM controller is with dual-output multiphase that faster transient performance and accurately regulated frequency control. It can be enabled to greatly increase system efficiency.
Super Durable Solid Caps
The best quality solid state capacitors with ultra low ESR design, the Super Durable Solid Caps doubles the lifespan.
Moistureproof of PCB The popularity of PC usage and working environment is getting deteriorating and moist (rural, coastal, etc.). The PCB will be oxidizing easily by damp or absorbed moisture, and ionic migration or CAF (Conductive Anodic Filament) will be generated. Moisture-proof PCB meets high density and high reliability requirements for moisture proof.
ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is the major factor to destroy the PC by electrical overstress (EOS) condition. ESD occurred by PC users when touch any devices connect to a PC, which may result in damage to the motherboard or parts. ESD protection is designed to protect the motherboard and equipment from damage by EOS.
OC / OV / OH Protection
OC / OV / OH Protection design detects overvoltage conditions and prevents voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the overvoltage supply to protect your system.

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a brand new framework that provides a revolutionary interface. It is a modern clear and easy-to-use graphical user interface. The UEFI comes with a colorful easy-understand icons leads users into the setup layer directly.
BIO-Flasher is a convenient BIOS update tool. Just launch this tool and put the BIOS on USB pen driver before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS with only a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy disk or other complicated flash utility.
With A.I FAN users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. According to different cooling needs and usage scenarios, users can control speed modes. Allows users to have more customizability of fan modes and automatically detects different temperatures to make fan operate at defined speed for optimal cooling performance. Furthermore, A.I FAN support both PWM and DC voltage fans for more cooling options.
Debug LED helps you identify any issues going with your board or hardware. When error occurs, the corresponding LED lights will inform you on the status of your board or hardware to shorten the test time effectively.
