"When AMD released the B550 chipset many people were excited as they would see lower cost motherboards. Unlike X570, the B550 chipset gives you less down-stream PCI-Express 4.0 lanes. So typically only the top PCI-Express slot and one M.2 slot will operate at PCI-Express 4.0 speeds. With X570 motherboards quite expensive many people have opted for B550 as a less expensive alternative. Well today we are taking a look at one such B550 motherboard that might not exactly fit that criteria as it comes in at $299. It is ASRock's B550 Taichi, which sits as a premium offering in the B550 space with a 16-phase digital VRM, 2.5G LAN, WiFi 6, USB 3.2 Gen 2, and possibly one of the best board designs we've seen from ASRock. Does it live up to its premium price? Read on as we find out!"
