$300 for The ASRock B550 Tiachi motherboard with chutzpah
by Rustam Iqbal
Asrock intensely offered motherboards for a long time that came in aqua series and crafted monoblocks, but the Taichi brand is one of the company’s censorious offerings. It is an edition in the land of elite motherboards. The brand is the head crown of all the products offered by the company in the market. There is a long list of features, but the remarkable feature is its sizeable 16-phase power delivery.
The first extricate X550 chipset shook the market with its high prices. Its inauguration made a lot of showy outward display for some models. The chipsets are usually considered the best budget maintaining chipset, although some best models B550 demands more price than its X570 models. That's why there is a little curiosity about the same rates because we know that X570 needs to be more enabled than X550, but share the same market price table.
Its VDroop control remains stable throughout the trial. It remains the same as POV-Ray try out. Taichi is leading in working, which was proved during thermal testing. It has ultra-modern and expensive models. They have advanced and systematic power delivery designs. It also has substantial heatsinks, which are present in pairs. The heatsinks are making a nexus through a heat pipe due to which its heat is properly dispensable.
They have improved thermal and improved power supply and fascinating features with the most exceptional quality.After passing all the tests, it is approved and then considered a solid performer after gushing through a benchmarking suit. While performing tests, it shows aggressive discharge. It has the best power consumption, which can be settled in all three power sets.
In comparison with X570, it has low PCIe 4.0. It has an unshortened PCIe slot and the other PCIe M.2 slot running at PCIe 4.0 while the remaining chipsets and slots are running at PCIe 3.0. It also has the most decent non-UEFI POST time, which is about 20.6 seconds. But this time stands only at default settings.
While performing the CPU and gaming tests, it shows rivalry actions for other AM4 boards, which are checked with testbed Ryzen 7 3700X processors. It also has the most stable overclock, which is about 4.3GHz with overclock testing, but it is done using Ryzen 7 3700X processor. This upgrade is needed for the proper working of new Zen three processors. It is one of the most high*-priced models with an MSRP of $300.
That's why it stands in opposition to Asrock, which now costs only $300 at Newegg. But this one is not the only public figure. AMD offers two models at the same price, which is $300. Both models X570 and X550 have the same marketing price. This price is chaotic for the consumers because it is tough to decide which is more bargain-counter.
The ASRock B550 Tiachi supports PCIe 4.0 to add-in-cards and chipsets. Additionally, there is a back and forth downstream from chipset and power. The reason is that X570 needs a fan to cool down the chipset. It also has eight SATA ports with dual M.2 slots. It also has an intel 2.5GbE ethernet controller and intel wifi six interfaces.
Above all, the queries B550 taichi still has the authentication mark of the high-grade AM4 model. It has a substantial array of controllers along with ports and power supply. It is furnished with the most incline motif, comes in bronze and black color variations, and is armed with three customized RGB zones. That's not the end. It comes in a sixteen phase power supply that is more than enough.
This ample power supply is the reason for its best presentation in thermal testing. Being idiosyncratic in the brand’s collection, it's the only board with the top two PCIe. It supports a PCIe 4.0 x 8/x8 configuration. It also has an amazingly noticeable feature of BIOS flashback controllers. These controllers have a significant effect on the upgrading of firmware without a CPU installation.
This feature is mainly installed for Ryzen 4000, which is launched by AMD. It is standing in weird conditions in terms of features and values compared to X570; it has more to offer than others. It has more qualified and capturing features having 16 phases versus 14 phase power delivery. It is also covered with gigabit ports. It also has a five-star audio codec along with wifi 6 and 2.5 GbE networking. Its audio codec has an assisting amplifier co-opted to fortify the front panel audio header’s quality.
