Few dollars cheaper then the deal previously posted + Speedy amazon shipping!
That board has 1 pcie 4.0 m.2 and 1 pcie 3.0 m.2 according to the spec sheet from gigabyte.
Awesome thanks I didn't look close enough, excuse my hasty judgement. Purchased.
Is this much better than the B550 Aorus Elite AX V2? Bought that for $169 the other day and now regretting it ;(
Yes, this board is a lot more useful than the Elite, mainly it has debug LED so you at least know what components is giving trouble if it doesn't post
Other features are more overclocking related
If you bought from Amazon, you can return it for a $7 fee +$3 difference in price, the aorus pro is worth that $10 difference
In28909 has written an excellent comparison of the boards. However, I'd like to mention that the Elite has a 4 layer PCB, while the pro has a 6 layer PCB.
why is there a fee to return ?
Change of mind return, you pay postage
Not satisfactory, free return
What you choose, that's up to you 😏
@ln28909: The other is incompatible.. I've had a few purchase incompatible with my wallet…
@Haliax: The other other one is "arrived too late".
Dam! Missed the editing deadline for my other comment. I mistook that comment, for him saying that the other option "Not satisfactory", was an option incompatible with his account.
Comparison from Gigabyte website
The Pro boards are 6-layer PCB compare to 4-layer on the Elite boards (if my information was correct)
Dam! Just posted the same thing.
Probably, should mention that this means the potential for better memory overclocking.
Quick question lads, I'm after a good B550 board with WIFI - this or the 'MSI B550 Gaming Edge WIFI' or 'ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING WIFI'? (assuming they all cost the same.) Cheers!
A quick check and they all seem to have the same Intel wifi 6 ax200 chip.
It looks like the MSI has the 2 antenna design at the back, which you can see here: https://files.pccasegear.com/images/1592289725-MPG-B550-GAMI...
Asus & gigabyte have the external antenna:
gigabyte (im pretty sure this is the same motherboard): https://www.gigabyte.com/FileUpload/Global/KeyFeature/1614/i...
pretty sure the antennas are interchangable/replacable, if someone can chime in.
If prices are the same, as they all use the same wifi chip, get whatever one you like the best (in case antennas aren't interchangle get either the Asus or gigabyte). Look into the software, extra features like debug led, usb flashback, m.2 & pcie slots, vrm cooling, colour scheme/rgb, etc..
Thanks muchly for reply bro! I think I will pick this up.
Damn would of bought from amazon…. good dealio!
Mine from SE should be arriving tomorrow 😊
I literally lost $17 in just 2 days lol… oh well…
What about against ASUS ROG B550-i?

Is the USB disconnect still a thing with Gigabyte B550 motherboards or the latest BIOS updates have fixed them?
Also I heard Gigabyte is not as good or as reliable when it comes to BIOS updates and customer services compared to Asus. Could someone please confirm if it’s still the case.
Mate I don't know why you are being downvoted because this is an issue.
I have this exact same board and can't get my all my USB slots to be fully effective.
Bios updates don't seem to be doing much.
Yeah, I’ve no idea why I was being down voted just for asking a genuine question. Apparently it’s because it’s my fault for not reading the other thread and googling for the answer before that. Anyway I’ve done the ‘homework’ now and the answer apparently is the motherboard is great and the USB issue has been resolved in the latest BIOS update. Maybe you could try with the latest one as well if you haven’t?
A bios came out about a week after your post. I've not long had my board, but my initial usb mouse jumpiness seems to be resolved. They don't mention usb fixes in the release notes (they said they fixed it back in March..) but they did update AGESA. Give it a try.
What accessories did you get? Anything nvme related like heatsink or extension cable? I got one from techfast, with only the wifi antenna and 2 sata cables.. wondering if I'm missing something. Gigabyte's website is no help.
This one is still available for few dollars more:
Is there any other Gigabyte motherboards you guys have been itching for a sale on?
How about the Gigabyte b550i aorus pro ax?
Looking for a decent motherboard for a mini-ITX build.
We don't stock ITX boards im afraid :/
b560m aorus pro would be great :-)
I'll put up a sale for them now :D
