Not really a great deal. Hopefully other B550 boards will be more affordable. Available June 16.

Well it's $200 Canadian and though that is high you do get more features than the B450 Prime like WIFI 6, ARGB header another RGB header and PCIe 4.0 support. If this is the case I see top B550 boards being well north of $300 Canadian.
