Product Description


GIGABYTE AMD B550 AORUS ELITE AX V2 AM4 DDR5 ATX Motherboard


Dominant in Darkness

In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently anticipates the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.


Ultimate Power Design

To fully support the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors, B550 motherboards equip with the ultimate power solution which is true direct, digital and multiple phases. After countless experiments and testing, GIGABYTE presents the unbeatable B550 motherboards for enthusiasts. No Compromise and never stop to achieve higher.


2X Copper PCB

GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.


True 12+2 Phases Digital Power Design

B550 AORUS ELITE AX V2 motherboard uses an 12+2 phases digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controller and DrMOS. These 100% digital controller offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors.

Digital PWM Controller delivers appropriate voltage to the CPU.
True 12+2 Phases DrMOS with PWM Doublers, each power phase connects directly to the CPU. With capability to handle up to 700 Amps current in total.
All-solid capacitors to improve Transient response and minimise oscillation.
8pin Solid Pin CPU Power Connectors.


Unparalleled Performance

GIGABYTE realize that customer won't stop chasing a better computing performance. We take care of it and implement on products. Protective and optimized memory trace enhance the performance. Faster read and write are needed to save time and improve efficiency. We offer plenty of M.2 storage with thermal guards to ensure unthrottled read and write. In advance, adopting PCIe 4.0 ready components get the B550 motherboards easier to upgrade.


Memory Layout - Daisy Chain Design

With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the B550 motherboard provides a proven speed of DDR4-4000MHz and beyond with high density memory modules*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.


Performance with PCIe 4.0 x4 + PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe PCIe SSDs

B550 AORUS motherboards offer the industry's best compatibility in terms of NVMe storage for users who demand high capacity and seek the best performance. AORUS' unique design can be configured in RAID for record speeds of up to 6560 MB/s (Sequential Read), making AORUS the obvious choice for the ultimate PC.


Advanced Thermal Solution

Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the advanced thermal solution which including Enlarged Heatsinks, High Quality Thermal Conductivity Pads and Thermal Guards. B550 motherboards are cool on MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs even on full loading. It provides lower temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.


GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard

With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.


Smart Fan 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.

Its perfectly suit for gamers and streamer with ultimate and smooth online experience. It also backward compatible with Multi-Gig (10/100/1000/2500Mbps)of RJ-45 ethernet.


Intel WiFi 6 802.11ax + BT 5 Module

Intel Wireless solution supports 802.11ax, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps*. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.


USB Type-C Front Panel Connector

Equipped with next generation connectivity, AORUS Gaming Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C header for USB 3.2 Gen1 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.2 Gen1 device or charging your mobile device.


HDMI 2.1 for 4K / 60P / 21:9 / HDCP 2.3 Support

HDMI 2.1, which is backwards compatible with HDMI 2.0/ 1.4 and offering 48 Gb/s of bandwidth twice times more than previous generation. This unlocks the potential for users to transfer multiple video streams, as well as a native cinematic 21:9 ratio (which most movies are shot in), Full HDR and HDCP 2.3 support, to offer the best visual experience for viewers.


Hi-Fi Audio System

For enthusiasts, sound quality is just as essential to the gaming experience. B550 motherboards are equipped with high quality audio components such as Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors to provide a superb audio experience. The exclusive AORUS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.


High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors

The AORUS motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end Nichicon Fine Gold audio capacitors. While the high-end audio capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AOURS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.
