PRIME B450-PLUS (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX Motherboard
The B450 chipset forms the centrepiece of the ASUS PRIME B450-Plus motherboard and has been specially developed and optimised for 2000- series (Pinnacle Ridge) Ryzen CPUs. B450 motherboards support all features of 2nd gen Ryzen processors, such as the AMD's new XFR2 overclocking. Additionally, the motherboards support up to 64 GB of RAM with a guaranteed clock frequency of 2.933 Megahertz. Overclocking to higher frequencies is also an option, although the increase will depend on the motherboard.
The Features of the ASUS PRIME B450-Plus at a Glance:
- 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16) for high-end graphics cards
- 2x USB 3.1 / 1x USB 3.0 Type C / 4x USB 3.0 / 6x USB 2.0
- 1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4 & SATA6G) / 6x SATA 6G
- DDR4-RAM up to 3.200 MHz via OC
- LED lighting & 4-Pin RGB header
The Features of the ASUS PRIME B450-Plus in Detail:
The ASUS PRIME B450-Plus ATX motherboard offers a PCI-Express 3.0 slot with full x16 connectivity for graphics cards as well as a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot with four lanes. For additional expansion cards, the motherboard offers three PCIe x1 slots. The four RAM slots support up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM clocked at frequencies of up to 2.933 MHz and even frequencies up to 3.200 MHz.
An M.2 slot is available due to the motherboard being AM4-compatible. It is connected via four PCI-Express Lanes and offers SATA 6G protocol compatibility and accepts drives up to 110 mm. M.2 SSDs using the advanced NVM-Express protocol (NVMe) and connectivity via four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes for up to eight times the speed of SATA 6G hard drives and speeds of up to 32 Gbit/s.
The ASUS PRIME B450-Plus offers a USB 3.0 Type C connector as well as two USB 3.1 Type A connectors. The USB Type C port can be inserted in either orientation, is exceptionally slim, and USB ports in this standard generally also support smartphones' and tablets' fast charging function. USB 3.1 Gen 2 achieves maximum speeds of 10 Gbit/s per port. CPUs with integrated graphics like AMD's Raven Ridge APUs can use the HDMI- and DVI-D connectors.
In terms of the special features offered by the ASUS PRIME B450-Plus, the board offers Japanese audio capacitors and an LED strip. Additionally the board comes with one 4-pin header for static RGB-LEDs.
