Wasn't they supposed to be due out by December?
I was thinking the same thing but the latest rumors points to a launch during January/February 2020.
We might know much more at the CES 2020 event that AMD will be attending in early January.
To make things confusing i see that they might be releasing a 550a which is just a rename of the 450 chipset.
What will B550 bring extra ? I am interested in the MSI Tomahawk Max B450 currently and was planning a purchase in the new year...
I was wondering the same thing as i'm not sure if they will get PCI 4.0 or not?
Now moved Q3 2020 , Sigh!
That’s annoying. I am in the process of buying buying bits for a new PC and I was holding off on the Moro to see what the B550 was going to bring. As I have bought a Micro ATX case I will probably just buy a MSI Mortar Max.
The B550 will probably just be the same as the 450 but with a slighty upgraded vrm and a single pcie4 m.2 from the CPU and pcie4 for graphics cards.
The mortar is a very solid choice.
Shame the Mortar MAX dont have 6 sata sockets instead of 4 The Tomahawk max has 6 sata sockets but to be fair i didnt really want to buy a ATX size motherboard Micro ATX would of been better.
You do get the extra m.2 port over the tomahawk though and using a m.2 on the tomahawk will disable 2 sata ports so both can essentially use 6 hdds.
I hope the B550 come out soon as I thinking about upgrading my sons PC. Currently I have two ryzens 3600 and they are great - so want another 3rd gen ryzen.
say B550 chips are being produced in Q1. Then the mobo maufacturers need to make the boards and stock pile for a launch.
