We previously covered the best AM4 motherboards for Ryzen CPUs, comparing X570 vs. X470 and B450, but with the launch of B550, we wanted to make a dedicated video for just the top B550 motherboards to watch in 2020. This mostly considers the AMD Ryzen 3000 series (R5 3600, 3600XT, 3700X, 3800XT, 3900XT, 3950X), so we talk about VRM heat capabilities and efficiency, I/O options, PCIe configuration arrangements, troubleshooting features, and other differentiating factors between motherboards.
