you yourself are average! / Motherboards

The AM4 platform has hit no less than three years – the long-awaited first-generation Ryzen chips went on sale on March 2, 2017, but it seems that this happened quite recently. Since then, much has changed on the desktop computer hardware market, and according to the majority, Intel is already playing the catch-up role. However, I brought this well-known fact with the sole purpose of showing how popular the AMD platform has become. The more popular the platform, the more products are released for it. Therefore, now, in 2020, no one is surprised by the availability of expensive motherboards for the X470 and X570 chipsets. It would seem that not so long ago for the AM3 platform there were just one or two really cool motherboards. Only the SABERTOOTH 990FX and CROSSHAIR V FORMULA-Z models come to mind, if we talk about ASUS products. This number cannot be compared to the number of cool boards for the AM4 platform – times have changed.

A year after the release of Zen 2 processors and the X570 chipset, motherboards based on the B550 chipset appear (for a long time, AMD, for a very long time). This set of logic has been awaited by many: devices based on it receive support for PCI Express 4.0 and guaranteed 100% compatibility with Ryzen 4000 chips, which are expected to appear later this year. However, the prices for B550 boards were clearly not pleasing to the people – many new items cost even more devices based on the X570 chipset. Here’s a good example: in one well-known Moscow store, the cost of the B450-motherboard varies in the range from 4,500 to 14,000 rubles, taking into account a slight rounding, X570 – from 12,000 to 60,000 rubles, and B550 – 10,500 to 21,000 rubles.

I agree with the opinion of colleagues that AMD is betting heavily on the B550 chipset. Firstly, it is already clear that motherboards based on this set of logic will settle in various price segments. The bet has been made, and this decision to a certain extent will even harm the sales of X570 motherboards, since the devices noticeably overlap in price, although the most expensive and uncompromising solutions from ASUS, ASRock, MSI and GIGABYTE are still implemented on the older AMD chipset. Secondly, it is already known that the A520 chipset (devices based on it will appear on sale in the fall) will not receive support for the PCI Express 4.0 standard, and this will certainly alienate some users, because Zen 3 will also be supported on B450 / X470 boards.

It remains to wait for really inexpensive models using the new AMD chipset to appear on sale, but can we wait? The answer to this question will be clear, I think, closer to autumn, but for now I propose to get acquainted with B550-boards, moving from top to bottom, because ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING is one of the most expensive devices in this class offered on the Russian market.



⇡ # Specifications and packaging

Before writing this article, I studied a large number of B550 models from various manufacturers. All boards on this chipset list support for Ryzen 3000 chips, with the exception of Ryzen 3 3200G and Ryzen 5 3400G – and we are talking about only 17 models of central processing units. However, more recently, news slipped through that new products from AMD partners received unofficial support for all generations of Zen. And it’s true – the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING quite calmly identified the first Ryzen 5 1400 that came to my hand. On the web, you will find very convincing evidence that this model works excellently with G-processors equipped with integrated graphics.

I do not believe that all the leading manufacturers just suddenly forgot to indicate support for Zen and Zen + chips on their sites, so here we can speak with 100% certainty about a top-down from AMD. However, let’s not make a tragedy out of this. Better, let’s take a closer look at the main characteristics of the hero of today’s testing.

The device is packed in a small but colorful cardboard box. Its appearance is quite recognizable, but the main thing is, of course, the content. In addition to the board itself, there were many useful and not so useful accessories in the box:

  • user manual, keychain with the ROG logo, stickers for the case and SATA cables, as well as a business card for the gaming series of ASUS motherboards;
  • remote antenna of the wireless module;
  • CD with software and drivers;
  • four SATA cables;
  • M.2 screws and additional adhesive spacers;
  • two extenders for RGB tapes;
  • nylon ties.
  • USB Type-C ↔ 3.5mm mini-jack adapter.

In general, we have everything you need to immediately start assembling the system unit.

⇡ # Design and features

Outwardly, the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING is very similar to the ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING – up to the point that this time we are dealing with an AMD platform. This is an ATX form-factor board, which houses an almost complete set of expansion slots and ports. The device is weighty, the manufacturer claims that the new PCB has six layers at once. In the photo below, we see an impressive power converter and additional cooling for M.2 drives.

I had no serious complaints about the layout of the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING components. Consider the expansion slots, of which six are soldered on the board at once. The ATX standard allows you to “cram” the seventh PCI Express port, but there is no special need for it, since in 100% of cases it would be blocked by a video card – we are talking about a gaming device, right? And so the distance between the two PEG ports is respectable. The motherboard supports NVIDIA SLI technology – and this is another attribute of expensive devices that, for example, boards based on the B450 chipset do not have. ASUS has recently been releasing graphics accelerators with coolers that take up 2.7 expansion slots – the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING will shelter a couple of such video cards without any problems. And yes, when both PCI Express x16 slots are used, they will operate according to the x8 + x8 scheme – of course, we are talking about the PCI Express 4.0 standard, because this is a B550 chipset. Separation of 16 lines of the central processor is carried out using four signal repeaters and four switches – a standard set for ASUS motherboards based on X570 logic.

By the way, this pair of PEG ports is additionally reinforced. A metal frame called SafeSlot, according to ASUS, increases the port’s durability by 1.8 times at fracture load and 1.6 times at pull-out load.

Supports our ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING and 3-Way CrossFire technology, although there is no mention of this on the packaging. The lowest PCI Express x16 operates in x4 mode (and we are talking about PCI Express 3.0), but it shares lines with a pair of PCI Express x1 slots. So when they are used together, we get the x2 / x1 / x1 mode of operation for the whole trinity.

The limitations of PCI Express ports are hardly considered a serious drawback of the device and the B550 chipset in particular, since in most cases one video card will be used in a gaming system. ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING is equipped with high-quality network and sound controllers, and it is unlikely that many will run to the store for discrete analogs for these board components.

What pleases is the presence of six connectors for connecting fans at once. All are 4-pin. For example, a Midi-Tower case may well use six or more impellers. In addition, ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING is able to regulate the speed of not only “Carlsons” with PWM. Therefore, there is no need to use additional components like reobass or select a case with an integrated fan controller. Beauty!

The location of the connectors is generally good. There are three connectors at the top: CPU_FAN, CPU_OPT and AIO_PUMP pads. The last port is useful for those who will use an unattended LSS. Another connector is located next to the casing of the I / O-panel – to it we connect the case fan located on the back wall. But to the bottom connectors will be connected body “carlsons” fixed on the front panel – the main thing is that their wires have sufficient length.

Here, as a quibble, I would still like to get four CHA_FAN ports, since even a simple Midi-tower allows you to install three 120-mm “windmills” in front at once. As they say, more is not less.

The device has a large number of internal ports. There are two USB 2.0, as well as one USB 3.2 Gen1 and one USB 3.2 Gen2 – the pads for connecting cables are located in the convenient and familiar places on the PCB. Separately, I note the presence of four connectors for connecting the backlight at once: for two addressable RGB tapes and for 4-pin AURA tapes.

On the board itself, the ROG logo on the I / O panel casing and the STRIX inscription on the chipset heatsink are illuminated. Naturally, a bunch of modes are supported, which you can configure using the AURA Sync program.

Overclockers will like an ordinary, but very informative indicator of POST codes. And next to the 24-pin connector for powering the motherboard, a set of four Q-LEDs is provided, showing at what stage (CPU, DRAM, VGA, BOOT) the system unit hardware is initialized – also a simple, but very useful thing for those who often delves into their assembly.

Another useful connector for enthusiasts is the T_SENSOR connector to which a thermocouple can be connected. True, there are no wires with it in the kit with the motherboard.

Two M.2 ports in modern motherboards are becoming the de facto standard, and in an assembly based on the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING, both connectors are likely to be occupied over time. Both slots support the installation of SSDs up to 110 mm in length, both drives with the PCI Express standard and with SATA 6 Gb / s can be connected to them. Both ports are equipped with cooling radiators and are generally well located. The SSD installed in the upper (main) slot will be additionally blown when using an air cooling system – four PCI Express 4.0 processor lines are connected to this port. The drive installed in the lower (additional) M.2 port will not be blocked by a video card (if we are talking about a system with one gaming accelerator), four PCI Express 3.0 chipset lanes are connected to it. This slot also shares the bandwidth with the SATA6G_5 / 6 connectors: either it or the connectors for SATA-connected storage devices work.

As you probably remember, X570 motherboards all M.2 slots support PCI Express 4.0. And this is perhaps the only noticeable difference between the 500-series logic sets in terms of functionality – the X570 has PCIe 4.0 chipset lanes that can be routed to additional M.2 ports, while the B550 does not.

The I / O panel has DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.1 video outputs. There are also three USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, one of which is C-type. And the optical output has been replaced with a USB 2.0 Type-C port, which is connected to the S210 controller, which automatically detects the type of audio signal. The chip (apparently a Realtek DAC) includes a headphone amplifier, analog mic / ground switches, and a USB 2.0 switch. For compatibility with various headsets and headphones, a corresponding adapter is included with the board.

The same panel has a USB FlashBack key. It can be used to update the device’s firmware even if the system is turned off and does not have a processor and RAM installed. This button also resets the motherboard BIOS settings.

Wired network connection is provided using the Intel I225-V controller, and wireless – due to Wi-Fi 6 AX200, which, in addition to Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac standards with a bandwidth of up to 2.4 Gbps , also supports Bluetooth 5.1.

The familiar Supreme FX audio codec, based on the Realtek ALC1220A, is responsible for the sound in the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING. The manufacturer claims that he gets “exclusive versions” of this microcircuit, so the name contains the second letter “A”. Compared to the “standard” Realtek ALC1220, the signal-to-noise ratio of the “elite” ones is higher – 113 versus 108 dB. Traditionally, for expensive motherboards, the audio path includes high-quality Nichicon capacitors and the RC4580 and OPA1688 operational amplifiers from Texas Instruments. The audio chip itself is shielded, and all elements of the sound system are separated from the rest of the board by a PCB strip that does not conduct current.

The power supply to the central processor is carried out using one 8-pin and one 4-pin connector. Do not forget that power supplies with such a set of cables are not found very often, and basically we are talking about powerful devices – 700 watts or more. Moreover, additional power supply to the processor is needed only in extreme cases, when it comes to overclocking the chip using liquid nitrogen.

The manufacturer claims that the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING power converter works in a 14 + 2 scheme, where most of the phases are responsible for stabilizing the CPU voltage. However, most likely, the real formula for VRM looks like 7 + 1 – we have twice the number of elements in each channel: it includes two inductors and two power stages of Monolithic Power Systems MP88992, which includes a driver and MOSFET switches of the upper and bottom keys. Each such assembly can withstand a load of 70 A. The new (or re-labeled) PWM controller DIGI + ASP2006 controls the VRM elements.

Two separate aluminum heatsinks cool not only the DrMOS assemblies, but also the power subsystem chokes. Another small heatsink is responsible for cooling the chipset – without a fan, and this is another difference between B550 motherboards and their X570 brothers. Since the X570 chipset is a slightly modified I / O chiplet used in EPYC Rome processors, its TDP is about 15W and it needs active cooling. Among all the motherboards released, only the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme has a passive hub cooling. In motherboards of some other manufacturers, “Carlson” starts to rotate only when a certain temperature of the chipset is reached – usually 70 degrees Celsius. In a good case, as a rule, it does not come to such indicators. However, in other devices the chipset fan always works – in the same GIGABYTE X570 AORUS PRO, for example. It makes a lot of noise when the system is turned on and will probably begin to “whistle” after a certain time – there are no eternal things. Owners of B550 boards will not experience hub overheating or additional noise.

Below are photos of the controllers used in the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING.

⇡ # BIOS Features

We examined the UEFI BIOS capabilities of ASUS motherboards inside and out. In addition, the emergence of devices based on the B550 chipset did not introduce any fundamental points for tuning Ryzen processors and memory. In the above, there is nothing surprising – for that ASUS and the industry leader to produce a huge number of different, but popular products. As a matter of fact, this is why regular 3DNews readers have long been familiar with the capabilities of ASUS firmware. While preparing this material, I noticed that the BIOS of the test model is not much different from the firmware of the ROG STRIX B450-I GAMING: the shell design has not changed, the set of functions is the same, even the main voltages are present in the same composition and are regulated within the same limits. We again see that the manufacturer does not cut back on functions, including overclocking ones. That is why the motherboards of this Taiwanese manufacturer are suitable for those users who are not averse to experimenting with their hardware.

The main options for overclocking the processor and memory are located in the Ai Tweaker menu. Most importantly, the UEFI BIOS of the reviewed board has everything you need to manually overclock the CPU and RAM. The table below shows all the possible voltages available for manual adjustment.

The voltage of the CPU cores changes in two modes: explicit and in Offset mode. In the second case, we can change the potential difference in the range from -0.4 to +0.5 V in 0.00625 V steps. The SOC Voltage parameter is adjusted in the same way. What’s nice is that the BIOS has five Load-Line Calibration levels for the CPU component and the same number of steps for the SOC.

Min / Max value, V Step, B
VDDCR CPU Voltage Override 0.75 / 2 0.00625
VDDCR CPU Voltage Offset -0.4 / + 0.5 0.00625
VDDCR SOC Voltage Override 0.75 / 1.8 0.00625
VDDCR SOC Voltage Offset -0.4 / + 0.5 0.00625
DRAM Voltage 1.2 / 1.8 0.005
VDDG CCD Voltage Control 0.7 / 1.8 0.001
VDDG IOD Voltage Control 0.7 / 1.8 0.001
CLDO VDDP Voltage 0.7 / 1.8 0.001
1.05V SB Voltage 1.05 / 1.1 0.05
VTTDDR Voltage 0.6 / 0.8 0.005
VPP_MEM Voltage 2.5 / 2.8 0.005
CPU 1.80V Voltage 1.8 / 2.2 0.005
2.5V SB Voltage 2.5 / 2.55 0.05
VDDP Standby Voltage 0.9 / 1.05 0.005
CPU Load-line Calibration (levels) five 1
VDDSOC Load-line Calibration (levels) five 1

The board has two temperature sensors, that is, in the BIOS and using ASUS proprietary software, we can control the temperatures of the processor, motherboard and PCH. Плюс есть возможность подключить термопару к разъему T_sensor, расположенному рядом с внутренними колодками USB 2.0.

Страница Advanced отвечает за конфигурацию аппаратных ресурсов платы. На странице Monitoring отображены показатели датчиков температур, напряжений, а также всех подключенных к матплате вентиляторов. Вкладка Boot позволяет сконфигурировать загрузочные устройства и задать другие параметры, касающиеся старта системы. Наконец, меню Tool дает доступ к сохраненным пользовательским профилям настроек UEFI BIOS, к функции Secure Erase, которая стирает всю информацию с SSD, а также к вкладкам с подробной информацией об установленных в плате модулях оперативной памяти и о режимах работы имеющихся видеокарт.

Традиционно UEFI BIOS материнских плат ASUS оснащен такими полезными функциями, как EZ Flash 3 Update и Qfan Control. При помощи первого мини-приложения мы можем всего за пару минут обновить прошивку BIOS, при помощи второго — настроить работу подключенных к материнской плате вентиляторов. А вот от функции EZ Tuning Wizard решили отказаться. Впрочем, мы уже давно поняли, что ни одна технология интеллектуального разгона процессора и памяти не сравнится с ручным тонким оверклокингом.

Из новенького отмечу наличие технологии Flexkey. При ее активации кнопка перезагрузки на корпусе системного блока значительно увеличивает функциональность. Теперь с ее помощью можно управлять эффектами подсветки AURA Sync или же активировать опцию DirectKey — быстрый вход в UEFI BIOS сразу после перезапуска ПК.

Больше скриншотов UEFI BIOS материнской платы ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING расположено в галерее. В целом к прошивке устройства нет никаких претензий.

Использование 99-го процентиля вместо показателей минимального количества кадров в секунду обусловлено стремлением очистить результаты от случайных всплесков производительности, которые были спровоцированы не связанными напрямую с работой основных компонентов платформы причинами.

Нагрев ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING (номинальный режим)

Подсистема питания ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING внушает доверие. И без дополнительных тестов ясно, что плата отлично справится с любым Ryzen — как вышедшими, так и ожидаемыми моделями.

К сожалению, у меня не было под рукой 12- или 16-ядерной версии Ryzen 9, но, на мой взгляд, тестирование платы вместе с Ryzen 7 3800X наглядно показывает, что она отлично справляется со своей работой — в том числе и в разгоне.


Нагрев ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING (разгон)

Во время тестирования материнских плат я всегда использую необслуживаемую систему жидкостного охлаждения. В результате околосокетное пространство никак не обдувается — устройство работает в тяжелых условиях. И если плата выдерживает такой стресс-тест, не теряя стабильности, — значит, мы можем не беспокоиться за свой ПК, даже если он будет функционировать в режиме 24/7.

Для разгона Ryzen 7 3800X до 4,4 ГГц по всем ядрам пришлось серьезно увеличить напряжение — до 1,4125 В, а заодно выставить третий уровень Load-Line Calibration. В таких условиях максимальный уровень энергопотребления всей системы под нагрузкой в программе Prime95 увеличился с 166 до 240 Вт — на 45 %. Система работала стабильно, а температура компонентов подсистемы питания выросла незначительно. Мы видим, что VRM героя обзора отлично справляется с разогнанным Ryzen 7 3800X. Нет никаких предпосылок для того, что ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING вдруг облажается с 12- и 16-ядерными ЦП.

Дальнейший разгон Ryzen 7 3800X невозможен из-за сильного перегрева процессора — с чипом на частоте 4,4 ГГц еле справляется даже двухсекционная «водянка», и я в очередной раз убеждаюсь в том, что разгонять 8-ядерники AMD нет никакой необходимости — слишком большой ценой даются дополнительные 200-300 МГц.

Новинка ASUS поддерживает модули оперативной памяти, работающие на эффективной частоте вплоть до 4400 МГц. Комплект Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO CMW32GX4M4K4400C18 в список гарантированно работающих модулей ОЗУ не входит, однако он совершенно спокойно и стабильно запустился на плате при активации XMP-профиля.


ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING поддерживает технологию D.O.C.P. Standard — она не просто загружает XMP-профиль набора оперативной памяти, но подстраивает вторичные и третичные тайминги самостоятельно. На платформах Intel реализует функции XMP I и XMP II, где пользователь сам выбирает, какие настройки будут активированы для комплекта ОЗУ.

В случае с платформой AM4 и процессорами Matisse (Refresh) использование памяти с эффективной частотой больше 3600 МГц не приводит к увеличению быстродействия и даже оказывает негативное влияние в некоторых случаях. Давно известно, что использовать вместе с Ryzen 3000 более быструю оперативную память нет никакого смысла, хотя мы только что убедились, что ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING стабильно работает с комплектами DDR4-4400. Создание новых процессоров при помощи чиплетов привело к тому, что ядра процессора и контроллер памяти теперь разделены. При этом связь чиплетов друг с другом обеспечивает хорошо знакомая нам шина Infinity Fabric — ее частота для Ryzen 3000 по умолчанию составляет 1800 МГц (у недавно вышедших Matisse Refresh в этом аспекте никаких изменений не наблюдается). Частоты Infinity Fabric и ОЗУ не привязаны друг к другу, однако частота шины должна быть либо равна реальной частоте оперативной памяти, либо меньше нее. Вот и получается, что при использовании комплектов ОЗУ, работающих на эффективной частоте выше 3600 МГц, тактовый генератор контроллера памяти начинает работать в режиме 2:1, то есть его частота уменьшается вдвое. Как итог, более быстрая (по частоте) оперативная память работает неэффективно — и это хорошо видно на приведенных скриншотах, если сравнить DDR4-4400 с DDR4-3600.

Используя ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING, мне удалось слегка разогнать Infinity Fabric — до 1900 МГц. А потому система стала адекватно работать с памятью DDR4-3800. Вновь тестовое устройство проявило себя с лучшей стороны.

Собственно говоря, вот у нас и наметилось интересное сравнение: сначала я протестировал систему с Ryzen 7 3800X, работающим по умолчанию, и памятью DDR4-3600 с таймингами, выставленными согласно D.O.C.P. Standard; затем я разогнал Ryzen 7 3800X до 4,4 ГГц, а все ту же память разогнал до эффективной частоты 3800 МГц и настроил все основные тайминги (первичные, вторичные, третичные) вручную.

Результат проделанной работы мне понравился. В том же Adobe Premiere Pro 2019 система стала быстрее сразу на 14 %. А как в играх вырос минимальный FPS!


Знакомство с ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING оставило исключительно положительные эмоции. Протестированная модель — это отличная основа для мощного ПК. Будет это игровая сборка или рабочая станция — решать уже потенциальным покупателям, то есть вам. Подсистема питания ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING влегкую справляется с любым существующим Ryzen — и точно так же справится с любым Zen 3, когда наступит время. Функциональность — отличнейшая, ведь на плате распаяны передовые контроллеры и интерфейсы. К ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING можно только придираться по мелочам: уж слишком хлипкой кажется заглушка на I/O-панели, а коннекторов для подключения вентиляторов хотелось бы на 1-2 штуки побольше.

Осталось только решить один вопрос: готовы ли вы ради обладания ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING расстаться с 20 000 рублей?
