The MPG B550I GAMING EDGE WIFI power system is 8+2+1 direct power phases with Dr.MOS 60A, and while it might be small in stature it is built tough with an eight layer PCB with 2oz of thickened copper.  The cooling of the board is similar to the larger model with  an Extended Heatsink Design that provides 7W/mK thermals and an additional choke pad with a MOSFET base plate as well.

The HDMI 2.1 port can handle up to 4096×2160@60Hz so if you chose the right Ryzen processor you can enjoy UHD video without needing a discrete GPU.
