ASRock X570S PG Riptide – Wccftech

Touting it as the X570S (S for Silent), one of the main features of the new motherboards is the lack of active cooling solution on the X570 PCH. Several users had requested their respective favorite brands to offer fanless motherboards and well here they are. Rocking brand new designs, features, and improved power delivery, the X570S motherboards are finally available and we are starting our testing spree with a budget-oriented motherboard from ASRock, the X570S PG Riptide which is said to retail at around $200 US.

ASRock X570S PG Riptide – PC Gamer

The X570S Riptide, like all X570 boards, features a PCIe 4.0 x4 link between the CPU and the chipset. This compares to a PCIe 3.0 link for B550. This means you’ll get better performance if you’re using two PCIe 4.0 drives, or multiple PCIe expansion cards. This factor alone may be the clincher that leads you to consider the X570 chipset over otherwise similarly performing B550 boards.

GIGABYTE X570S AORUS MASTER – Tom’s Hardware

Gigabyte’s X570S Aorus Master marks the second chipset fan-omitting X570S board to make it to our test bench (the first was ASRock’s X570S Riptide). While X570S doesn’t bring with it substantive new features (outside of the absence of a fan), it does give companies the opportunity to refresh their AMD-based board lineups, add more features of their own, and make another run at our best motherboards list.

ASRock B550 PG Riptide – Tom’s Hardware

Digging down into the features, the board has 10 Phase digital power with Dr. MOS MOSFETs. There are two M.2 sockets (one with a heatsink) and six SATA ports — what many would call standard for budget motherboards.  Memory support is listed over DDR4 5000, but of course, your memory mileage may vary. On the networking side, the PG Riptide includes a Killer Networks 2.5 GbE, but does not have integrated Wi-Fi (there’s an available M.2 socket to add it). If you need many rear USB ports, there are 10 to choose from, including a 10 Gbps Type-C port, but there is no 20 Gbps port/header.

GIGABYTE MZ72-HB0 – AnandTech

As with many server-focused motherboards, even in more ‘standard’ form factors, the GIGABYTE MZ72-HB0 focuses mainly on functionality and substance over style. GIGABYTE has opted for its typical blue-colored PCB, with the same theme stretching to the sixteen memory slots on the board. Looking at memory support, the MZ72-HB0 supports up to 2 TB per socket, in eight-channel memory mode, focusing on memory up to DDR4-3200 RDIMM, LRDIMM, and 3DS varieties all supported. As this is a dual-socket EPYC motherboard, there are two SP3 sockets with four horizontally mounted memory slots on either side, and each socket can house processors up to 280 W TDP.

MSI MPG Z590 GAMING CARBON WIFI – Hardware-Journal

The Gaming Carbon has been the top model in the MPG series from MSI for some time. It doesn’t matter which socket or chipset is on the board. The MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi can also be understood in the same way. For gamers, it should have everything they need and offer slightly upscale features. This time the board has got a twin, so to speak – the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Force dispenses with the WLAN adapter and is more colorful, but otherwise designed and equipped identically ( see Intel Z590 overview ). The most recent version of the carbon motherboard has reduced its playful character a little, but not completely discarded it.

BIOSTAR Z590I VALKYRIE – The FPS Review

The BIOSTAR Z590I VALKYRIE is based on Intel’s Z590 Express chipset and supports all current LGA1200 socket compatible CPUs and 11th gen Rocket Lake. It is Intel’s flagship chipset for the mainstream platform. The motherboard itself is a mini-ITX form factor motherboard that is designed for small form factor PC’s which are popular among some enthusiasts.

ASRock X570S PG Riptide – Tom’s Hardware

As far as features go, the most significant difference with the X570S Riptide compared to ASRock’s X570 lineup is the lack of a chipset fan. The Riptide looks like a budget board, with most of the PCB exposed, outside of the chipset and M.2 heatsink, but it’s far from unattractive. Outside of that, the Riptide includes two PCIe 4.0 M.2 sockets, Killer-based 2.5 GbE, six SATA ports, and VRMs capable of supporting the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor at stock and while overclocked.

MSI MEG B550 UNIFY – Hardware-Journal

The MSI MEG B550 Unify is the manufacturer’s most expensive B550 motherboard, which is also reflected in many points and functions. One can name here the power supply, the layout, the network connection, the audio solution and much more. That the rather discreet board is also suitable for overclockers is shown by the sibling model Unify-X, which only has two RAM banks and is also supposed to run particularly high memory speeds. However, the present sample should first be examined more closely.
