Introduction







ASUS has long been a fixture in the DIY market. The company started out in the late 1980s and has grown into one of the largest and most influential hardware manufactures in the computer market.



As is the case with other manufacturers, ASUS has a wide range of offerings at every conceivable price point with an array of features and designs suited to each specific market segment.

I'd grab an X570 now. There are options cheap enough that I don't think you'll save a lot with B550. I also don't know if it will be quite the same as B450 vs. X470. I think B550 will be quite a bit different given its being produced by ASMedia and not AMD, but its specs won't be quite on par with X570 as that wouldn't make sense.
