The ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming Wi-Fi Motherboard Review: Premium Value

In our benchmarking suite, the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming performs superbly in our system tests, with big wins in our non-UEFI POST time test and DPC latency out of the box. Its performance in our power tests also puts the B550-F in a positive light, with competitive performance in our CPU and game testing too.

ASUS STRIX B550-F Gaming review

Little about the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming [WI-FI] can be referred to as 'budget' though, as this easily could be a premium motherboard due to its features and a $229 USD price tag. The board as stated is positioned in an higher end region of what is considered the mainstream segment, it does look properly STRIX styled, stuff we like of course.

ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi and Strix-E Review | Test Setup and Overclocking | CPU & Mainboard

The Strix B550-F though just couldn't quite hit these heights, and we had to make do with 4.34 GHz on our Ryzen 9 3900X. As one of the few B550 motherboards that couldn't quite match the X570 offerings it might have an effect in our graphs, or maybe 50 MHz across 12 cores doesn't really rock the boat that much
