UF Gaming B550-Plus distills essential elements of the latest AMD platform and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability.

When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance — an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.

ROCK-SOLID PERFORMANCE

With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the latest AMD Ryzen CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF Gaming B550-Plus is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.

Power Design

Driver & MOSFET

DrMOS

The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming B550-Plus utilizes 8+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Processors demand.

Stack Cool 3+

2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures and provide more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

Power Connector

ProCool Sockets

Enhanced 8-Pin Sockets

Extreme durability 

Prevent hotspots and connector failureCompared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure

System Stability 

TUF Components

TUF Chokes - Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.

TUF Capacitors - Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.Controller

Digi+ VRM

The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

Cooling

Cooler by Design

VRM heatsink

A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.

Thermal pad

High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

M.2 Heatsink

The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

Comprehensive Fan Controls

TUF Gaming B550-Plus features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 2+ utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources - Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 2+ or via the UEFI.?

4-pin PWM/DC fan - All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Smart protection - A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.Storage

PCIe 4.0 M.2 (up to 64 Gbps)

TUF Gaming B550 motherboard supports PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot and provides 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.

*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theoretical maximum speed.

** The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0 and the M.2_2 supports PCIe 3.0.

Connectivity

USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C

Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a USB Type-A™ and a Type-C™ connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.

EASY PC DIY

TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want —even for first-time builders. The TUF Gaming Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.

TUF GAMING ALLIANCE

Build with confidence

TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.

TUF PROTECTION

SafeSlot

SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured via a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

ESD guards

ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV.

Keyboards and mouse connectors - Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression

VGA protection - Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect VGA output functionality

USB connectors - TVS diode for surface-mount and dual in-line packageTUF LANGuard

TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

DRAM overvoltage protection

Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.

Stainless-steel back I/O panel

TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.

EASY CONFIGURATION

BIOS FLASHBACK™

BIOS FlashBack™ is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack™ port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronize them with Aura Sync for uni?ed system lighting effects. You can also turn on the AI Noise-Canceling Microphone function for crystal-clear in-game voice communication. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of products, including keyboard and mouse preferences as well as laptop overclocking and fan speeds, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and news areas to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.
