ASRock X570S PG Riptide – GinjFo

We have a solid platform for gamers. It perfectly meets the needs of the latest titles without worrying about the level of graphics settings. With everything at maximum, the framerate in 1440p is between 95 and 163 frames per second which is perfect. We consider 90 frames per second to be the upper limit for high end hardware. The switch to 4K has consequences since the number of images per second drops. We have a framerate between 62 and 112.2 fps. The results are still positive, we remain above 60 images per second.

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.
