DESIGN CONCEPT – DOMINANT IN DARKNESS
In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently anticipates the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.
ULTIMATE POWER DESIGN
To fully support the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors, B550 AORUS motherboards equip with the ultimate power solution which is power balanced, digital and multiple phases. After countless experiments and testing, GIGABYTE presents the unbeatable B550 AORUS motherboards for enthusiast. No Compromise and never stop to achieve higher.
GIGABYTE realize that customer won’t stop chasing a better computing performance. We take care of it and implement on products. Protective and optimized memory trace enhance the performance. Faster read and write are needed to save time and improve efficiency. We offer plenty of M.2 storage with thermal guards to ensure unthrottled read and write. In advance, adopting PCIe 4.0 ready components get the B550 motherboards easier to upgrade.
ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the advanced thermal solution which including Enlarged Heatsinks, High Quality Thermal Conductivity Pads and Thermal Guards. B550 motherboards are cool on MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs even on full loading. It provides lower temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.
HI-FI AUDIO SYSTEM
For enthusiasts, sound quality is just as essential to the gaming experience. B550 motherboards are equipped with high quality audio components such as Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors to provide a superb audio experience. The exclusive AORUS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.
High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors
The AORUS motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end audio capacitors. While the high-end audio capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AOURS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.
Audio Noise Guard
AORUS motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting Illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.
B550 motherboards feature RGB FUSION 2.0 and offer the option to control onboard, external light strips, and/or AORUS devices with RGB/ Addressable RGB LEDs to make your PC unique and stylish.
GIGABYTE is reputable for its product durability and high standard of manufactured process. Needless to say, we use the best, high quality components on B550 motherboards and reinforce each part of components to be solid and durable.
