Fight The Riptide With The ASRock X570S PG Riptide

Source: TechPowerUp Fight The Riptide With The ASRock X570S PG Riptide

Old And New Side By Side

The ASRock X570S PG Riptide is one of the very few X570 boards which still sports an old PS/2 port for those that prefer a mouse or keyboard from a previous era.  If not, it also has both a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C and Type-A to connect the newest peripherals, not to mention quite few ports from generations between those two extremes.  It also sports six PCIe 4.0 slots of varying lanes, a pair of M.2 ports for drives and even a Key-E M.2 if you want to add WiFi.

Unfortunately the performance did not match the feature set in TechPowerUp’s testing, though it was good enough for anyone running stock speeds.   The less than stellar power delivery became very apparent when they tried overclocking, and found little success overclocking either the CPU or memory.

If you don’t intend to overclock or install certain extremely heavy duty GPUs, this might be a decent AMD X570 to chose from if you happen to have a number of daughterboards and peripherals you need to install and use.

The new ASRock X570S PG Riptide takes the X570 chipset to a whole new level. Gone is the controversial fan that creates unnecessary noise. The Riptide is an affordable motherboard with 2.5 Gb/s LAN from Killer Networking, RGB support, and all the necessities to get started!

    Looks pretty good, has good pricing, for someone who has enough storage, the X570 makes much more sense than B550.
