Onboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet boosts your wired connection, with speeds 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, lag-free gaming, and high-res video streaming.
Exceptional RMAA Performance - Built-in ROG SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio for ROG Strix B550-A Gaming. Along with providing a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature, it offers two front-panel outputs driven by op-amps that deliver high-quality audio to gaming headsets.
Effective shielding against electromagnetic interference preserves the integrity of audio signals for the best sound quality.
Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
With two op-amps onboard, you can pump exceptional audio to your favourite cans, with 32-600Ω-headphone impedance for incredible flexibility.
Fine-quality Japanese-made components produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio while preserving vocals simultaneously. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are intelligently neutralised so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while gaming or in calls.

Minimal Performance Impact
Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit your headset's personal preferences or characteristics.
The new Sonic Studio Link allows you to apply Sonic Studio effects on all playback devices. Press the Sonic Studio Link button to enjoy the impact on any connected device.
Mix your voice and video game audio using this software specifically designed for streaming applications—a variety of settings and monitoring.
Apply customised audio settings to various applications so that each is perfectly tuned to the way you want to listen.
*A head-related transfer function is an audio algorithm derived from sound data recorded through a dummy head. Test tones are played from a spherical grid around the dummy head to obtain subtle changes in sounds that come from different directions. The results are combined into an algorithm that allows Sonic Studio's virtual surround to process audio that’s true to life.
ROG Strix B550 series motherboards are pre-loaded with the DTS Sound Unbound app that envelops you in audio as never before, conjuring whole new levels of immersion for incredible gaming and entertainment experiences. By leveraging Windows Sonic spatial technology, DTS Sound Unbound delivers audio in a virtual 3D space — putting you right in the middle of the soundscape, where you can sense the location and direction of every gunshot, footstep or other sounds in your virtual environment.
*DTS Sound Unbound requires in-game support. Check with developers for supported titles.
STEREO SOUND - Discrete left and right audio channels enable headphone or two-speaker setup.
SURROUND SOUND - Audio is split and served over multiple speaker channels – e.g., 5.1 or 7.1 – to create an enveloping experience on a single, logical plane.
SPATIAL SOUND - A virtual audio ‘sphere’ effect creates astonishing 360° immersion — with you at the centre, where sounds seem to travel in all directions.
ROG Strix B550-A Gaming provides robust power delivery to fuel Ryzen’s cores, comprehensive cooling, and support for faster memory — so it has everything you need to load up your build with high-performance components for playing in the big leagues.

A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers. A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability
All onboard headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
MOS heatsink provides a large contact area for MOSFETs and chokes.
A high-quality thermal pad helps transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
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. A highly customised Daisy Chain layout delivers time-aligned signalling to enhance further overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations.
The bold slashes and cybertext accentuate the cyberpunk-inspired aesthetics of ROG Strix B550-A Gaming. By pairing your rig with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem, you can create a fully customised gaming setup that reflects your style.
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 reflecting its gaming roots.
The patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install on the motherboard.
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.
The reinforced ASUS SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
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 isn’t present.
ROG Strix motherboards undergo an extensive certification program to ensure the very best compatibility with the broadest range of components and devices. For a smooth build process, refer to ASUS's list of guaranteed-compatible parts.
