There’s plenty of new B550 motherboards hitting the market this week, and I suspect the MSI MAG B550M is going to be pretty popular. The MAG series has often been a nice blend of features and affordable prices, giving it a lot of appeal with gamers who want great performance without spending crazy money. It’s also one of the few mATX motherboards hitting the market right now, as they do seem to have become rarer in recent years. I’m a big fan of mATX, it’s my favourite PC case form factor, and you get plenty of features in a smaller package.

While B550 is the more mid-range option to the high-end X570 chipset, it is hardly lacking in features. MSI has crammed in plenty of gamer-friendly hardware on this motherboard. Support for 3rd Gen Ryzen and DDR4 of 4400+ MHZ (OC). A robust VRM and heatsink combination so you can run the CPU harder without it throttling. Then you’ve got ultra-fast 2.5G LAN, USB C, dual PCIe slots, PCIe Gen 4 support and more!
