In this video, we're testing the AMD B550A chipset on ASRock's B550AM Gaming micro-ATX motherboard from a Cyberpower computer purchased at Best Buy. We'll be explaining in more detail what the differences are before AMD B450, AMD B550A, X570, and what little we know of AMD B550. Most of this boils down to PCIe Gen4 support. This is tested using an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU that was included with the Cyberpower pre-built system, alongside an AMD RX 5700 and NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti for PCIe 3.0 vs. 4.0 bandwidth testing and validation.
