What Makes An ASUS ProArt B550 Creator?

Thunderbolt 4 On An AMD Platform, For One

ASUS has a variety of Creator motherboards, but there is only one ProArt model at the moment, the ProArt B550 Creator.  You have a lot of choice when it comes to CPUs, you can pick a Ryzen from the 3000, 4000G or 5000 family to install and install up to 128GB of DDR4.  It sports two M.2 ports, a pair of the aforementioned TB4, four USB 3.2 Gen 2, and a pair of old USB 2.0 for connectivity.  It lacks WiFi but does have a pair of Intel 2.5GBe NICs and both HDMI and DisplayPort if you go with an APU.

Tweaktown’s testing shows this is a solid board, matching or beating the other B550s they have reviewed.  As it only has 12 phase power your overclocking experience will likely be limited, but it will keep even a high end Ryzen 5000 fed and stable.  The lack of WiFi might turn some off, for others the Thunderbolt and 2.5GBe ethernet will more than offset that,
