Today we will discuss one of the best motherboard Gigabyte B550M DS3H Review. The Vermeer Ryzen 5 5600X processor has caused quite a stir in the processor market, which is split between Intel and AMD. In particular, in the gaming processor market, it is gaining recognition as a processor with high cost effectiveness, such as benchmark sites, and has been very satisfying to the users who have purchased it.

Unfortunately, due to insufficient supply in the retail market, the demand for waiting is also increasing. This new Ryzen 5000 series processor, codenamed Vermeer, was only supported on the AMD 500 series chipset, X570, B550, and finally the A520, but was also available on the lower chip set B450, as the card supports PCIe 4.0. The B550 chip set is chosen by many gamers.

  • Short Specifications: AMD (Socket AM4) / (AMD) B550 / M-ATX (24.4×24.4cm) / Power supply: 5 + 3 phases / DDR4 / Memory capacity: Maximum 128GB / XMP / VGA connection: PCIe4.0 x16 / Graphics Output: DVI, HDMI / PCIe Slot: 3 / M.2: 2 / SATA3: 4 / PS / 2: Combo 1 / USB 2.0: 4 Rear / USB 3.0: 4 Rear / Gigabit LAN / UEFI / LED header / RGB fusion.

Gigabyte B550M-DS3H Durable Edition The DDR4 memory available on the motherboard can be expanded up to 128GB in dual channel configuration via 4 DIMM slots. However, the memory speed varies slightly for each processor you want to use.

In the case of the Ryzen 4000 and 5000 series, up to DDR4-4733 is possible through overclocking, and in the case of the Ryzen 3000 series, up to DDR4-4000 is possible. In the case of Samsung’s DDR4-3200, which supports XMP, a gaming memory, as well as the CL22 specification, it can be used immediately without being set in the motherboard BIOS.

The processor support for the B550 chipset is the AM4 support socket, which has the same pins and appearance as the current Ryzen 1000 series, but according to AMD policy and the Gigabyte policy, it can be used with Ryzen 3000 series or more processors.

We have covered a list of 5 Motherboard for Ryzen 9 3900x. You must check it out if you don’t find this one accurate for your work.

Gigabyte B550M DS3H Ram compatibility

It should be noted that this may vary depending on the current Ryzen processor support share policy. Officially, the B550 chipset supports the Ryzen 3000 series, Ryzen 4000 series and Vermeer Ryzen 5000 series.

The connection between the power and this motherboard is connected by a standard 24 pin connector and a 12V 8 pin connector. Gigabyte has recently used a solid connector that is a “compound” inside the power connector. This motherboard is also solid pin power connector has been implemented. This solid pin power connector fully adheres to the power connector, providing high conductivity and low heat dissipation.

By combining 4-pin RGB peripherals or ARGB peripherals, you can easily control all RGB LEDs by connecting to Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion 2.0 app. The default RGB effects are available in 8 preset modes, including static, plus, flash, double flash, and cycle color, and 3 custom modes for saving.

The PCIe slot that can be connected to the graphics card acts as PCIe 4.0 when the Ryzen 3000 series or Ryzen 5000 series processor is connected, and with the built-in graphics cover of the Ryzen PRO 4000 series, it works as PCIe. works. 3.0 In addition, it has a total of three slots: a PCIe x1 slot and a PCIe x4 slot.

The GIGABYTE B550M-DS3H Durable Edition motherboard provides two slots for a total of two M.2 SSDs. The slot near the processor socket supports PCIe Gen4 x4. And the M.2 slot between the PCIe slots supports the PCIe Gen3 x2, and the maximum speed obtained from this slot is approximately 1,600 MB / s continuous read and write speed. Confirmation of the performance of this section will be additionally mentioned at the bottom.

The sound codec for the sound output is Realtek ALC887 and the Realtek RTL 8118H chipset is used to support wired gigabit internet. Because both of these chipsets are used on many motherboards, part of the stability is a certified chip set.

This motherboard is located with the main BIOS processor socket, and 16MB and 256Mbit capacity products were used. Since this product is an entry level motherboard, Gigabyte’s double BIOS was not implemented.

The main board power supply consists of low RDS MOSFETs and 5 + 3 digital VRM phases.

Gigabyte B550M DS3H Durable Edition Motherboard supports 4 SATA3 ports for connecting SATA3 storage in addition to slots for installing 2 M.2 SSDs.

The B550 chip set used in the B550M-DS3H Durable Edition of the Gigabyte is built with TSMC’s 7nn process, and the number of PCIE lanes has been halved compared to the X570 chip set, which is the upper chip set.

Accordingly, in the case of the X570 chip set main board, requires active cooling with a separate fan, but this chip set has a relatively low 6W TDP, so a simple aluminum heat sink-based heat sink to heat Enough to finish.

The B550M-DS3H Durable Edition motherboard’s IO shield configuration is solid, but it has 4 USB 2.0 ports, 4 USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, and DVI and HDMI ports for the Ryzen PRO 4000 processor. In addition, it supports one Gigabit LAN port and three sound output ports. Finally, it supports PS / 2 comp port. If you look at the picture above, you can see the white USB 3.2 Gen2.

See B550M-DS3H Durable Edition BIOS.

In addition to updating the BIOS via the Q-FLASH PLUS button mentioned above, it is possible to quickly and easily update the BIOS via the motherboard BIOS option Q-FLASH.

Overall, it took about 2 minutes to update the motherboard BIOS.

It consists of “Easy Mode”, mouse click mode, and “Advanced Mode”, a text menu mode, which is the gigabyte mainboard BIOS configuration. It contains the color “yellow”.

The resize bar support option to support “SAM” has been first implemented on the AMD Radeon 6000 series graphics card, from the F11q version of the latest BIOS of this motherboard. If you use this motherboard and AMD Radeon graphics card, you can enjoy fast gaming performance.

PCIe 4.0 NVMe performance of the B550M-DS3H Durable Edition?

I mentioned earlier that this motherboard has two M.2 SSD mounting slots. What is the maximum speed you can get from these two slots? With the WD SN850 1TB SSD recently reviewed in Brain Box, I measured performance in two M.2 slots on the motherboard. The details of the hardware used for this test are as follows.

  1. Processor: Raison 5 5600X.
  2. Memory: Gel DDR4-3200 CL22 8GB x2.
  3. Graphics card: GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition.
  4. Storage: WD BLACK SN850 NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 1TB.
  5. OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (Build 20H2)

WD BLACK SN850 NVMe Gen4 x4 1TB.

The second M.2 slot uses a PCIe LAN that is directly connected to the B550 chipset and acts as a PCIe Gen3 x2. It showed a continuous read and write speed of about 25% faster than the SN850 SSD we had seen before.

As you can see in this simple test, if you are using an NVMe SSD that supports Gen3 x4 or Gen4 x4, install it in the first M.2 slot located between the processor socket and the PCIe 4.0 x16 slot. Make sure to If it is installed in another M.2 slot, only some performance of the maximum possible speed is provided.

Through changes to AMD’s policy since last month, even the B450 chipset, which can be seen as a sub-chipset, began to support Ryzen 5000 series processors through BIOS updates. But many In the minds of AMD fans, it is possible to use the latest AMD 500 series chipsets to use the latest processors.

Because of the strong idea that it should be used, I prefer the B550 chipset to the main board, which is closer to the X570 chipset, which is a higher level than the A520 chipset. The lower model is from this point of view, this motherboard lacks on-board RGB LEDs.

So it is less shiny, but it has higher board chip seats as well as the most stable power supply on the main board. High cost product with stability by adding configuration. . If you want to build a cheap and inexpensive Vmere processor based gaming system, I want to end this article with the hope that this motherboard should be on your shopping list.
