Best AMD Motherboards
AMD motherboards are available for multiple platforms, including AM3+, AM4, FM2+, sTR4 and sTRX4. There are also multiple motherboard models from different brands including Intel®, ASRock, Asus®, Biostar, Gigabyte and MSI®.
Efficient AMD motherboards are cost-effective solutions that provide impactful computing. Preferred by budget gamers, students and professionals, the AMD motherboards offer a less expensive choice than some other motherboards.
There are multi-core setup options that deliver multithreaded performance. Check the USB headers on the motherboard and the I/O area to make sure it has the external connection options you are looking for.
MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon WIFI
The MSI MPG X570 represents an amalgamation of bleeding-edge motherboard tech, built to help you get the most out of AMD‘s high-end Ryzen 5000 processors, such as the Ryzen 9 5900X or Ryzen 9 5950X. It has four DIMM slots that can handle speeds up to 4,400MHz.
The rear I/O panel features seven USB Type-A ports for peripherals, as well as a single USB Type-C port for connectivity and high-speed data transfer.
The MPG X570 supports Wi-Fi 6, and while that does necessitate a Wi-Fi 6 compatible router for the fastest speeds, it will also work with existing Wi-Fi 4/5 routers.
The pair of M.2 slots each have dedicated heat shields and fans, and while this does help prevent potential thermal throttling, it makes installing or replacing them a more delicate process than with their more-exposed counterparts.
The MPG X570 features enough compatibility to get the most out of your hardware now and in the future, provided you’re willing to pay a premium for it. While it’s certainly an excellent motherboard, if you aren’t already committed to a shopping list of top-of-the-line components, you may want to consider a slightly less expensive board for your needs.
ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3
ASRock has made some great AMD Ryzen motherboards over the years, and this one packs in the latest high-end X570 chipset, forward-looking features, and serious performance. The fact there’s almost no Mini-ITX premium attached makes the Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 even more tempting.
It also means you can potentially create a 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 3950X or AMD Ryzen 9 5950X machine that looks about the same sort of size as an Xbox Series X.
It is worth noting that it will require an Intel-based CPU cooling bracket. In order to fit all the features into the mini-ITX form factor, ASRock didn’t have space for the bulky AMD fitting. That’s only an issue if you wanted to use the stock AMD coolers, but otherwise, any third-party cooler will come with Intel brackets.
