GIGABYTE’s first B550 motherboards have been listed at the Eurasian Economic Commission’s website. The manufacturer appears to be readying twelve in total, which comprise models in the flagship AORUS line and lower-range GAMING series.

  • B550 AORUS MASTER
  • B550 AORUS ELITE
  • B550 AORUS PRO AC
  • B550I AORUS PRO AX
  • B550 AORUS PRO
  • B550M AORUS PRO
  • B550 GAMING X
  • B550M GAMING
  • B550M DS3H AC
  • B550M DS3H
  • B550M H
  • B550M S2H

The exact specifications of AMD’s B550 chipset remain a mystery, but today’s development could mean that they’ll be detailed soon. Rumors suggest a lack PCIe 4.0 support through the chipset, but time will tell whether that’s true or not.

Additionally, the chipset fan from X570 boards are said to be gone. That would be great news for budget builders who want less moving parts and potentially quieter operation.

The EEC has also outed GIGABYTE’s upcoming Z490 (Intel) boards. There’s fourteen in total, which include the likes of the Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE, Z490 DESIGNARE, and Z490 AORUS ULTRA-GU.

  • Z490 AORUS XTREME
  • Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE
  • Z490 AORUS ELITE
  • Z490I AORUS ULTRA
  • Z490 AORUS PRO
  • Z490 DESIGNARE
  • Z490 GAMING X
  • Z490 AORUS ULTRA-GU
  • Z490 UD
  • Z490 D
  • Z490M DS3H
  • Z490 UD AC
  • Z490 VISION G
  • Z490 VISION D

There’s also a “W480 VISION D” board. This is reportedly a brand-new series intended for workstations (“W”).

  1. It seems to me putting a new ryzen into a mid range motherboard is kind of missing the boat… plus 170 for a current chipset doesn’t seem damaging to me… am I missing something?
