MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk Motherboard Review

While the MSI Tomahawk range is one of the more affordable boards in the MSI line up, it’s is still designed with gamers in mind. That means they’ve put the effort into cramming in as much as a gamer could want or need, but still keep an eye on the cost too. They’re not always the most attractive boards either in my opinion, but that doesn’t mean to say they can’t be impressive overall. B550 is the mid-range option for AMD users right now, with X570 still offering the full-fat experience.

MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk Motherboard Review

B550 may be the mid-range, but you still get a sample platter of all the premium features too. You still get some PCIe Gen 4 on one of the PCIe lanes and on one M.2 slot. The board still has a good power delivery setup for hitting those boost clocks and even overclocking. You get super-fast networking, RGB lighting, and great audio. Affordable it may be, but the Tomahawk still has plenty to offer.
