GIGABYTE B550 AORUS PRO Review

WEB: GIGABYTE ERP:  $179.99 | R4,333 @ RARU| AUTHOR: Neo

GIGABYTE’s B550 AORUS PRO is here, it’s affordable and it goes like the clappers. Armed with 2.5G Lan, dual M.2 sockets, a 12+2 phase PWM and the ability to overclock memory well past the 5,200MT/s range, the board is a mini performance wonder. The B550 AORUS Pro is the fastest AM4 board I’ve tested to date. For DRAM oc and general performance, few if any are faster then the B550 AORUS PRO.

XPG SPECTRIX D50 DDR4 4133 DRAM Review

WEB: XPG ERP:  $153 | ZARTITAN-ICE | AUTHOR: Neo

ADATA’s XPG brand recently launched their SPECTRIX D50 and D60 range of RGB DRAM Kits. With the SPECTRIX D50 we have the range topping DDR4 4133 CL19 kit. Not only is it by far the most aesthetically appealing (precisely because of it’s muted design and aesthetic) DRAM kit from XPG, its also the fastest I’ve ever tested from XPG. At $153 or so, it’s a winner for sure.

ASRock B550 TAICHI Review

WEB: ASRock ERP:  $299.99 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

ASRock has done the unexpected with the B550 TAICHI and produced a better motherboard, from a technically inferior chipset. Not only is this an objectively more capable motherboard than the X570 TAICHI, it does so at a price few if any others can match. For whatever reason, when it comes to bang for buck, ASRock is putting out strong offerings at every turn, and the B550 TAICHI is one such example. There’s no indication of when it may be available here in South Africa, but here’s hoping it’s sooner rather than later (and at an appropriate price too).

ASRock B460M Steel Legend – Quick Review

WEB: ASRock ERP:  $104.99 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

ASRock has added yet another offering to its Steel Legend family. The ASRock B460M Steel Legend is about as affordable as any B460 motherboard is likely to get. For those looking to build a gaming machine on the tightest of budgets, it’s not likely to get much better than this offering. ASRock has managed to pack in a few value add features on this board to make it well worth your time. It won’t set your world alight but it does prove competent all around.
