ASUS OptiMem II

To provide AMD's latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, motherboard trace routing has been reimagined with the ROG Strix B550-A Gaming. Integrated OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across PCB layers to reduce vias, and it also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. To further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, a highly customised Daisy Chain layout delivers time-aligned signaling.

UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX

Finished in stunning white and silver, and featuring the redesigned ROG logo and recessed cybertext markings on its I/O shroud, ROG Strix B550-A Gaming is an eye-catcher. These new design touches move ROG Strix boldly towards the future, while clearly reflecting its gaming roots.

Pre-mounted I/O shield

Patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install on the motherboard.

BIOS FlashBac

Users can place a BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB drive and simply plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port and press a button to update the (UEFI) BIOS. Updates can be made even if memory or CPU aren't present.
