    Re: AMD partners launch their B550 chipset motherboards

    The best boards in terms of looks I've seem so far is the Asrock Extreme4 and some of the strix boards. Also the 1 Gigabyte shown is okay. I still dislike that stupid bird logo. Not liking any of the MSi boards. Then again if they have great VRM and performance... who cares. Now the price will be a factor also. Mostly I would tell people to try and wait for the next chipset launch of boards and cpu's. B550 chipset is the end of the line. If you need a system now though. You gotta do what you gotta do.

    Re: AMD partners launch their B550 chipset motherboards

    Just shows the support for \AMD now with how many boards they are making.

    Seems a good way of cutting down the x570 without losing too much.

    Still happy with my X570 board but may have got one of these if it was available at the time, will be interesting to see more testing on the VRMs and RAM support.

    Re: AMD partners launch their B550 chipset motherboards

    Wonder how many will be at the budget end? Was looking at a £55 B450 mobo as bells and whistles ain't my thing - be interesting to see what these start from.

    Quick Google and Tom's is suggesting "from $100".

    I'm in much the same boat, itching to order a new uATX board but trying to hold off. I notice the Asus Gaming TUF board has a 2.5GbE port, I could be tempted by that.

    But some of the B450 boards can be had so cheap...

    Re: AMD partners launch their B550 chipset motherboards

    I find it interesting that 2.5GbE has become a thing all of a sudden.

    I would imagine the vast majority at home just have gigabit switches so they would only be able to provide 1GbE speeds even to these new boards. I guess the progression of technology in to the mainstream has to start somewhere.

    Intel has a problem with the 2.5GbE on its new motherboards:

    Apparently, in normal use they just never spin up. I must say that's also my experience.

    I will second this, either it never spins up or it doesn't make a sound when it does.

    From the sound of it 2 PCI-E 4 NVME drives at full tilt will kick the fan in.

    I wonder how related it is to intel saying their new chipset needs it? There's past history of intel pushing innovative & useful stuff onto PCs (like how they dragged up the standard for early SSDs)

    This is a rather old standard now which seems to have taken an age to hit any sort of tipping point. It seems to me too small a bump over current Ethernet, and too close to high end Internet connections. If they pushed 5GbE interfaces, then it could still do 2.5GbE for those with an office full of Cat5e cable but those of us with short runs of Cat5e or Cat6 could push faster. These are still slow rates compared with USB or any of the video interfaces that you get all over a PC backplate.

    If this sorts out the "chicken before the egg" problem of adoption, that's awesome. OTOH, I'm tempted to just go straight to using the £90 10GbE cards like the Asus.

    Re: AMD partners launch their B550 chipset motherboards

    The 2.5GbE option is broken on current Intel motherboards - check the link I put in this thread!

    A slide showcasing Intel's internal assessment of the Foxville 'Inter Packet Gap (IPG)' reveals that the I225-V has an issue which would lead to packet loss and reduced network performance in the range of 1-10 Mb/s.
