ASUS Prime series is expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, Prime B550 series motherboards provide daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features.

Tune It Your Way

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B550 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.

Intelligent Control

EPU

All-around Energy Efficiency

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), you’ll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode.

Fan Xpert 2+

Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls

Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over system fans. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There’s also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces chassis fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Digi+ VRM Control

Precise Digital Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode

Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers

An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want. 

Search Function - Quickly and easily find the option or setting you need.

ASUS User Profile - Port configuration settings between different BIOS versions or share them with friends.

EZ Mode

Quick and Simple Setup 

EZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.

Intuitive Graphical Fan Control - Fine-tune individual fan settings simply by dragging a curve with the mouse.

EZ XMP - Improve DRAM performance with one click.

Aura On/Off Mode (Stealth) - Easily enable or disable Aura RGB lighting or every onboard LED, for a subdued aesthetic touch.Cool to the Core

Prime B550 series is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Heatsinks

VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pads

A VRM heatsink with underneath thermal pad improves heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.

Cooler by Design

Prime B550 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS.

Multiple Temperature Sources

Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.

Smart Protection

A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent. 

4-Pin PWM/DC Fan

Each onboard chassis fan header supports PWM and DC mode.

Build on a Solid Foundation

Prime B550 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

Storage

PCIe 4.0 M.2 (up to 64 Gbps)

Achieve speed with onboard M.2

PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot supports up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to PCIe 4.0 storage device to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.

Connectivity

Intel® WiFi 6 AX200

The Intel® WiFi 6 AX200 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it\'s optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6. Learn more.

Intel WiFi 6 AX200 -> 2.4 Gbps

Other wireless adapters -> 0.86 Gbps*Actual speed varies, and depends on networking conditions.

USB 3.2 Gen 2

USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A

Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including two rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.

Little Things Make a Big Difference

Prime B550 series add the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look. 

Audio

Outstanding Audio

Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio

Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

Audio Shielding - Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference

Separate Layers for Left and Right Tracks - Ensures minimal crosstalk between audio paths

Premium Japanese Capacitors - Premium parts provide an immersive sound signature, with exceptional fidelityPersonalization

Aura Sync

Outshine the Competition

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for RGB LED strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.

Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header

The addressable Gen 2 RGB header is now capable of detecting the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new headers also offers backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate allows you to easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal. The software also provides control of settings for an ever-growing number of ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences.
