The B550 series motherboards for games use a 5 + 3 phase pure digital PWM + PWM + Low RDS (on) MOSFET design to support 3rd generation AMD Ryzen ™ CPUs, offering incredible accuracy in power supply to energy-efficient and energy-sensitive components on the motherboard as well as providing improved system performance and ultimate hardware scalability.
HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR GAMES
Realtek 8118 LAN is a high performance, friendly network chip for games with automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure the highest network priority for the game or application. It can provide users with the most comprehensive resources and the fastest and smoothest Internet experience.
3 ESD RESISTANCE LEVELS
GIGABYTE motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard and its components from potential damage from static electricity. GIGABYTE motherboards also have special anti-surge ICs that protect the motherboard and PC from any power spikes that may occur.
