The Gigabyte BB550M AORUS ELITE AM4 Micro-ATX Motherboard is designed around the AMD B550 chipset, supporting 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors with an AM4 socket. It has four memory slots, supporting up to 128GB of dual-channel RAM, which can run at up to 4733 MHz (O.C.). This motherboard features a micro-ATX form factor, which fits in smaller cases. Other integrated features include Realtek Gigabit Ethernet, Realtek 7.1-channel audio support, RGB Fusion 2.0 support, and Gigabyte Q-Flash Plus.
PCIe 4.0 Bandwidth
This motherboard pairs third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with high PCIe 4.0 memory bandwidth through the B550 chipset for maximum performance.
Dual NVMe PCIe 4.0/3.0 M.2 Connectors
With NVMe PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 and PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 connectors, this motherboard allows you to experience NVMe mode or SATA mode connectivity. Delivering up to 64 Gb/s data transfer speed, the dual M.2 connectors support RAID 0/1/10 modes.
Realtek LAN provides high performance for gamers and features automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure highest network priority.
HDMI 2.1 offers 48 Gb/s of bandwidth, which unlocks the ability to transfer multiple video streams as well as a native cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio, and Full HDR and HDCP 2.3 support. HDMI 2.1 is also backward compatible with HDMI 2.0/1.4.
Smart Fan 5
Smart Fan 5 keeps your system cool, allowing you to interchange the fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Smart Fan 5 supports both PWM and Voltage mode fans, making this motherboard more liquid-cooling friendly.
RGB Fusion 2.0
RGB Fusion 2.0 gives you full control of onboard RGB and external RGB devices and lights. Already feature filled with customizable colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 also has addressable LED support.
