Product Overview

ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS ATX Motherboard


Durable, Stable, Reliable

TUF Gaming B500-Plus distils essential elements of the latest AMD platform and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability.
When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance – an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.


Rock-Solid Performance

With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the latest AMD Ryzen CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF Gaming B550-Plus is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.


DrMOS

The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming B550-Plus utilises 8+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Processors demand.


Stack Cool 3+

2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures and provide more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.


ProCool Socket

Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.


TUF Chokes

Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.


TUF Capacitors

Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.


Digi+ VRM

The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.


VRM Heatsink

A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.


Thermal Pad

High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.


M.2 Heatsink

The m.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.


Comprehensive Fan Controls

TUF Gaming B550-Plus features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.


PCIe 4.0 M.2 (up to 64 Gbps)

TUF Gaming B550 series motherboards support PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot and provides NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to PCIe 4.0 storage device to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.


USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C

Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a USB Type-A and a Type-C connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.


Thunderbolt™ 3 Support

An integrated Thunderbolt™ 3 header supports up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support up to six devices in a daisy-chain, and provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.


Easy PC DIY

TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want — even for first-time builders. The TUF Gaming Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.


Build with Confidence

TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.


SafeSlot

SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured via a new insert-moulding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.


ESD Guards

ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV.


TUF LANGuard

TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.


DRAM Overvoltage Protection

Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.


Stainless-steel back I/O panel

TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.


Immersive Gaming

TUF Gaming B550-Plus provides a complete, high-performance gaming package with a long list of features to improve your experience, including ultrafast networking for smoother online gameplay, pristine audio with positional cues for FPS gaming, and onboard RGB lighting that syncs with attached accessories to help you create a personalised gaming atmosphere.


Exclusive 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet

2.5G on-board Ethernet kicks your LAN connection up a notch with an up to 2.5X bandwidth improvement. Using your existing LAN cable, you can take advantage this networking upgrade to experience smoother, lag-free gaming, immediately stream high-resolution videos and enjoy faster file transfers.


M.2 Slot (key E) for Wi-Fi Module

TUF Gaming B550-Plus comes along with an M.2 (Key E) slot which gives you the flexibility to upgrade your networking solution by installing an M.2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module.


AI Noise-Cancelling Microphone

AI Noise-Cancelling Microphone software is exclusively featured on ASUS motherboards and supports 3.5 mm, USB, or Bluetooth headsets. The utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to preserve the sound of your voice while eliminating distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks, and other forms of environmental noise. And it only places a slight load on the CPU, ensuring minimal impact on gaming performance.


TUF Gaming Audio Cover

Effective shielding preserves the integrity of audio signals to ensure best quality.


High-Definition Audio

Premium Japanese audio capacitors provide warm, natural and immersive sound.


Exclusive S1200A Codec

ASUS-exclusive codec delivers an expansive soundstage and dynamic sound.


Audio Shielding

Separates analogue/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference.


Signal-to-Noise Ratio

The unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek for TUF Gaming B550M series motherboards features an unprecedented 108dB signal-to-nose ratio for the stereo line out and a 103dB SNR for the line in, providing pristine audio quality.


DTS® Custom for Gaming Headsets

Hone your battle skills with exclusive DTS® Custom onboard audio. Utilising advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom takes onboard audio to a new frontier. With three presets ? Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical ? for different genres, you'll have a distinct advantage in every game.
