Insights a few weeks ago on the website of the organization EEC, motherboards X570S Riptide and B550 Riptide are now formalized by ASRock, and we were far from expecting a.
The two cards, which share a new design, directly attack players with little extras such as a graphics card holder intgr which is put on the studs of the box, a support of the sound via Nahimic, 2.5 GbE wired network Killer, and finally USB ports Lightning Gaming Ports which operate via two separate controllers to enjoy a clear signal, even on devices above 1000 Hz.
The rest of the cards are finally quite classic, with however the interesting presence of an M.2 slot for a WiFi card, the supports for the antennas already present on the I / O Shield.
And if the two cards are quite similar, in particular with ten power supply phases for each, the two chipsets make it possible to target different needs since the X570S Riptide offers three PCI-E Gen4 ports, while the B550 Riptide stays on a single Gen4 port. The same goes for M.2 storage, the two locations being in Gen4 on the first against only one for the second (depending on the components installed).
