Advance Your Gaming Immersion
The ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi II is PCIe 4.0-ready and provides you the latest connectivity options for smooth networking and blisteringly fast file transfers. Audio enhancements give you a massive advantage, allowing you to pick up on the subtlest of cues for a completely immersive experience.
This motherboard’s AM4 socket supports AMD Ryzen 3000 and 5000 Series and AMD Ryzen 4000 and 5000 G-Series processors.
Storage and Memory
This motherboard features two M.2 slots, one of which supports the PCIe 4.0 standard to provide maximum storage flexibility and lightning-fast data speeds. Both M.2 slots support up to the type 22110 socket and NVM Express RAID for a performance boost.
ASUS OptiMem II
The trace layout technology from ASUS OptiMem II allows memory kits to operate and high frequencies and low voltages to maximize performance.
RAMCache III software turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with NVM Express storage options, it effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at fast speeds.
Cooler by Design
The motherboard features cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS. With Fan Xpert 4, you can map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks. The ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi II also features a dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups and onboard chassis headers supporting PWM and DC control.
VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pad
The MOS heatsink provides a large contact area for MOSFETs and chokes, while the high-quality thermal pad helps transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
The two M.2 NVMe slots are covered by heatsinks which keep the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
Wi-Fi 6 and Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet
The onboard Wi-Fi 6E technology takes advantage of the radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band. It delivers fast wireless networking speeds and improved capacity as well as better performance in dense wireless environments. Additionally, the onboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, lag-free gaming, and high-res video streaming.
DIGI+ Power Control
ASUS DIGI+ Power Control is an innovative set of controllers for digital VRM and DRAM Voltage. These controllers offer ultra-precise memory and voltage tuning for optimal system efficiency, stability and performance.
Teamed Power Stages
12+2 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest AMD CPUs demand.
Built-in ROG SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio for the ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi II. Along with ensuring a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature, it offers two front-panel outputs driven by op amps that deliver high-quality audio to gaming headsets.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
This powerful ASUS-exclusive utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio while preserving voices. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks, and other ambient noises are removed so you can hear and be heard with clarity while gaming or during calls.
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
DTS Sound Unbound
ROG Strix B550 series motherboards are pre-loaded with the DTS Sound Unbound app that envelops you in audio as never before, conjuring whole new levels of immersion for gaming and entertainment experiences. By leveraging Windows sonic spatial technology, DTS Sound Unbound delivers audio in a virtual 3D space, putting you right in the middle of the soundscape.
The ROG UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC building, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. You can also use Armoury Crate to download the user manual, drivers, and software.
Pre-Mounted I/O Shield
A design feature that streamlines the installation process.
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status, and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card, or boot device for quick diagnosis.
The reinforced ASUS SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
Users can place a BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB drive and simply plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port and press a button to update the UEFI BIOS. Updates can be made even if memory or CPU aren’t present.
