ASRock Launches PG Riptide Series AMD AM4 Motherboards
ASRock is proud to announce its latest X570S & B550 PG Riptide motherboards for AMD Ryzen AM4 desktop processors. “Riptide is named after a specific kind of water current with a strong wave that occurs in the ocean. Riptide is unapparent, yet strong, fast, and carries a powerful punch; this is the design philosophy of ASRock PG Riptide series motherboards” Said Chris Lee, General Manager of ASRock motherboard & gaming peripherals business unit.
The ASRock X570S PG Riptide and ASRock B550 PG Riptide motherboards are the latest addition to the Phantom Gaming series, these stylishly PG Riptide series motherboards are armed to the teeth with gear designed to fulfill gamers’ everyday needs at a more affordable price point compared to high-end motherboards with similar specifications.
Uncompromised Quality and Stability
AMD X570-based motherboards commonly require active chipset cooling, however with an AMD microcode update and BIOS fine tuning by ASRock engineers, the ASRock X570S PG Riptide now offers a revolutionary fanless design to ensure quieter operation and better reliability. Designed for uncompromising performance, PC enthusiasts will be drawn to the 10 phase VRM design using Dr.MOS IC’s and 60A Power Choke on both X570S and B550 PG Riptide motherboards. This premium VRM design delivers smooth and plentiful power to even the most demanding 16-core AMD Ryzen CPUs for everyday gaming at the limit.
ASRock Lightning Gaming Ports
In addition to offering two M.2 NVMe SSD slots, M.2 Armor, and one M.2 slot dedicated for Wi-Fi card, there’s also plenty of internal and external USB ports for peripherals. ASRock Lightning Gaming Ports uniquely feature custom engineered USB signal lanes to accommodate the latest gaming mice with ultra-high polling rates. Traditional USB signal design cannot fully support ultra-high report rate gaming peripherals, therefore limiting their performance and the user experience.
