Gigabyte B550 Aorus Master Review
As well as the B550 motherboards we're also including our X570 motherboards in our graphs today, just to demonstrate how little the 'lesser' AMD Chipset is giving up compared to its bigger brother. Perfect if you're on a tight budget.

The Ryzen 9 3900X is probably at the upper limit of what people will use on a B550 motherboard, but we had no doubt that the manufacturers would take into account the high core counts of the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs. Certainly the Aorus Master has no problems with our 3900X, pushing 4.4 GHz across all the cores. As you'll see in a moment, this has a profound effect upon the performance.
