Gigabyte introduced a new series of Vision motherboards along with the announcement of the new Intel Z490 chipset. This series is intended for so-called content creators. It is designed to build systems that will be used for rendering, photo and video processing, and other similar tasks. Today, Gigabyte joined the ranks of this series by introducing the B550 Vision D.
As you might guess, looking at the name, the novelty uses the AMD B550 chipset and is designed for AMD Ryzen processors that work with the Socket AM4 socket. The board is made in the ATX form factor and has support for Ryzen 3000 processors (Matisse).
The advantages of the B550 Vision D include a strict design, an enhanced processor power subsystem, built according to the 12 + 2 scheme, as well as a wide range of interfaces and expansion slots.
The novelty has four DDR4 slots and supports the installation of up to 128 GB of RAM. In addition, it offers two expansion slots PCI Express 4.0 x16 (x16 / x0 or x8 / x8) and one PCI-E 3.0 x16 (works on four lines). Manufacturer SLI support not declared.
To build the storage subsystem, the B550 Vision D is ready to offer two M.2 connectors with aluminum radiators, as well as four SATA 6 Gb / s ports. The network capabilities of the board are provided by two gigabit RJ-45 interfaces, as well as a Wi-Fi 6 / Bluetooth 5.0 wireless module. There is an indicator of POST codes that allows you to understand errors if the assembled system does not want to start for some reason. Sound capabilities are assigned to the Realtek ALC1220-VB controller.
Interestingly, the B550 Vision D offers “unofficial support” for Thunderbolt 3, which is provided by the Intel Titan Ridge controller and two USB-C 3.2 connectors with a bandwidth of 40 Gb / s. Gigabyte itself, being careful, does not call these Thunderbolt 3 connectors. Additionally, the board is equipped with HDMI and DisplayPort connectors designed for Ryzen APUs with integrated graphics.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte does not say anything about the price of the B550 Vision D motherboard.
