PG Riptide: two ASRock motherboards for AMD CPUs!

PG Riptide: two ASRock motherboards for AMD CPUs!

Computex is also the occasion for ASRock to present two new motherboards. The brand announces its X570S PG Riptide as well as its counterpart equipped with a B550. Rather simple boards from a design point of view, but with a passive heatsink for the X570!

PG Riptide : X570 passive from ASRock !

ASRock X570S PG Riptide

The X570 with its passive chipset heatsink

With this new series, the brand offers two new references in ATX format. These boards are designed for AMD processors since they have an AM4 socket and X570 and B550 chipsets. However, the X570 model benefits from a passive heatsink that does not require a fan.

Concerning the connectivity, the two cards are very close to each other. The X570 version will simply have more PCIe x1, there are two more. Otherwise, for storage, both cards offer two M.2 slots, one of which is under a heatsink. The whole will be completed by six SATA III.

Finally, we note the power supply part identical from one model to another. This one is composed of 10 phases using DrMos with 60A coils. The brand announces that the power supply stages will be able to supply the most energy-consuming processors such as the Ryzen 9 5950X without difficulty.

The B550 model

We finish by mentioning some features of these models as the network part managed by a Killer E3100 chip. In the same vein, we have a USB port that fully supports high polling rate devices. Finally, ASRock slips a graphics card holder into each box. This will be screwed to the motherboard via the case screws.

For the moment, we have no idea of the price of these models. However, the technical specifications are still available on the brand’s website!

Here and there are the ASRock datasheets !
