You can take advantage of AMD Ryzen processors with integrated graphics by connecting monitors to the motherboard's DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.1 ports.

Connect peripherals such as mice and keyboards to the USB 2.0 Type-A ports while reserving the USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C ports for transferring data from compatible devices at up to 10 Gb/s. The ROG STRIX B550-E Gaming also features fast network connections through its built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, providing you with the bandwidth needed for online games, 4K video streaming, and live stream broadcasts. Other features include addressable Gen 2 Aura Sync RGB lighting headers, SupremeFX S1220A 7.1-channel audio with USB Type-C compatibility using the included adapter, Bluetooth 5.1, and more. Windows 10 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the motherboard's features.

PCIe 4.0 Memory Bandwidth

The ASUS STRIX B550-E Gaming pairs third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with high PCIe 4.0 memory bandwidth through the B550 chipset for maximum performance.

Enhanced Cooling

The motherboard features fanless VRM and chipset heatsinks using the ASUS Stack Cool 3+ design to enhance passive cooling and maintain optimal temperatures for critical components. Aluminum M.2 heatsinks are also included to quickly dissipate heat from installed SSDs to help avoid heat throttling.

Storage and Memory

  • Two M.2 slots are available, supporting up to type 22110 NVMe PCIe and SATA SSDs.
  • Six SATA III ports are available for hard drives and 2.5" SSDs.
  • Supports RAID 0, 1, and 10.
  • Up to 128GB of dual-channel ECC DDR4-4400 (OC) memory can be installed across four slots.
  • ASUS OptiMem II trace layout technology allows memory kits to operate and high frequencies and low voltages to maximize performance.
  • The RAMCache III utility can automatically caches all your storage devices so that games and apps load faster.

Electrical Performance

The motherboard has 14+2 DrMOS power stages and uses high-quality alloy chokes alongside durable capacitors deliver power to critical components such as the CPU.

Fast Network Connectivity

The STRIX B550-E Gaming includes built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi and a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port for high-speed network connections with compatible devices. The GameFirst VI network customization tool for ROG routers lets you select the best Wi-Fi channel to optimize data traffic, helping to ensure stability with minimal interference. The Ethernet port uses LANGuard technology to protect it against surges and to provide a cleaner data signal while reducing the chance of errors without taking up CPU resources.
