ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E Motherboard Review

ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E Motherboard Review. Am I seeing double today? No, not quite, but I am playing a tight game of spot the difference. I’ve already written my review of the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F and now it’s the B550-E and surely there’s not that much difference?

Well, you would be right, and this one is the more expensive of the two as it features some modest upgrades to the overall power delivery and design.

However, it really is splitting hairs for much of it. Either way, both look like great AMD AM4 motherboards.

While the F had to make do with a 12+2 Power Stage the E gets upgraded to a 14+2 Power Stage design. Two of the PCIe slots are armoured rather than one, and both are Gen 4! So it’s little features really.

But they can make a big difference if you’re wanting a dual GPU system that’s for sure. Aside from that, these two motherboards are closely matched and still have all those lovely STRIX premium features like ProCool, M.2 Heatsinks, ARGB lighting, SupremeFX audio, Sonic Studio, Wifi 6 and 2.5GbE LAN.
