ASRock Announces X570S and B550 PG Riptide Motherboards

Leading global motherboard manufacturer, ASRock, is proud to announce its latest X570S & B550 PG Riptide motherboards for AMD Ryzen AM4 desktop processors. "Riptide is named after a specific kind of water current with strong wave that occurs in the ocean. Riptide is unapparent, yet strong, fast and carries a powerful punch; this is the design philosophy of ASRock PG Riptide series motherboards" Said Chris Lee, General Manager of ASRock motherboard & gaming peripherals business unit.

The Riptide is a new crew of Phantom Gaming series, these stylishly PG Riptide series motherboards are armed to the teeth with gear designed to fulfill gamers everyday needs, without biting into the bank account unlike other similarly spec'd, high-end motherboards.
Uncompromised Quality and Stability
AMD X570-based motherboards commonly require active chipset cooling, however with an AMD microcode update and BIOS fine tuning by ASRock engineers, the ASRock X570S PG Riptide now offers a revolutionary fanless design to ensure quieter operation and better reliability. Designed for uncompromising performance, PC enthusiasts will be drawn to the 10 phase VRM design using Dr.MOS IC's and 60 A Power Choke on both X570S and B550 PG Riptide motherboards. This premium VRM design delivers smooth and plentiful power to even the most demanding 16-core AMD Ryzen CPUs for everyday gaming at the limit.

ASRock Lightning Gaming Ports
In addition to offering two M.2 NVMe SSD slots, M.2 Armor, and one M.2 slot dedicated for Wi-Fi card, there's also plenty of internal and external USB ports for peripherals. ASRock Lightning Gaming Ports uniquely feature custom engineered USB signal lanes to accommodate the latest gaming mice with ultra-high polling rates. Traditional USB signal design cannot fully support ultra-high report rate gaming peripherals, therefore limiting their performance and the user experience.

Killer E3100 2.5 Gbps Networking
Both X570S & B550 PG Riptide motherboards come with Killer E3100 2.5 Gbps Ethernet connectivity, which supports the Killer Prioritization Engine enabling the most reliable networking. The Killer Prioritization Engine can identify thousands of games, applications, and websites to prioritize games and the most demanding connectivity needs in real-time, offering uninterrupted online experiences with better throughput and lowest latency.

Whether you are using headphones, headset, or a set of speakers via USB, analog or even HDMI, Nahimic Audio offers you the most engaging listening experience.

ASRock Graphics Card Holder
A graphics card holder is bundled with both X570S & B550 PG Riptide motherboards. Its universal design ensures even the heaviest graphics cards can be held securely in the chassis. Simply attach it to your motherboard and chassis with the provided screws, and then slide the holder to the required height to support your graphics card.

I've had that happen once maybe? You can be bothered to unplug the graphics card for that, it'll take 2 minutes. Even Repair techs almost never have to deal with that. Would you rather have a PCIe Gen 4 M.2 slot there? Keep it ni

Stop advertising "60A Power Chokes". Nobody cares about how much current the inductors can handle if they keep on pairing with SM4337s (jesus christ ASRock stop) and 50A Vishays.

It'll be hilarious if this board is priced above the Steel Legend just because it's got a gamery aesthetic, because it's literally just the upper half of a Pro4 dressed up with DrMOS and a front Type-C.

Intentionally uncooled VSOC stages and the classic cutouts but no actual antennas or Wifi......never change, ASRock, never change.
