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 which is connected via four lanes. For additional expansion cards, the board comes with three PCIe x1 slots bereit. The four RAM slots support up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM clocked at a frequency of up to 2.933 MHz and this can even be increased to up to 3.200 MHz via OC.
An M.2 slot is provided by this AM4 motherboard. It is connected via x4 PCI-Express Lanes, supports the SATA 6G protocol and accepts drives up to 110 mm. M.2 SSDs using the advanced NVM Express protocol (NVMe) and that are connected using four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes are up to eight times as fast as SATA 6G drives and they support data transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbit/s.
The ASUS PRIME B450-Plus comes with a USB 3.0 Type Type C port on the back as well as two USB 3.1 Type A ports. The USB Type C port can be inserted in either orientation, is especially slim and USB ports compatible with this standard as a rule can support smartphones' and tablets' quick charging function. USB 3.1 Gen 2 is capable of achieving max speeds of 10 Gbit/s per port. For CPUs with integrated graphics such as AMD's Raven Ridge APUs, an HDMI- and a DisplayPort connector are available.
In terms of the special features on offer by the ASUS PRIME B450-Plus, it offers Japanese audio capacitors and an LED strip. Additionally the motherboard comes with a 4-pin header for static RGB-LEDs.
