MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk Review

Test Setup

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.

Overclocking

We know that putting a twelve core Ryzen 9 3900X is probably overkill for the majority of people who will be looking to base their system around a B550 motherboard, but it's also a great test of the attention to detail in the power department. The MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk comes up trumps with 4.4 GHz across all of our cores. Impressive stuff, particularly as it doesn't remotely stress the VRM section.
