Funny you posted this as I was thinking about upgrading my mITX build from 2015. How much better is this compared to the STRIX B450-F gaming?

A lot of testing is not available yet since this line is so new. The 550 boards tested so far by Hardware unboxed are very similar to the 570 boards available. Because these are just coming out, it might make more sense to wait until the holidays to get it at a better price since you're not waiting on it for a new build.

I actually ended up going with the ASRock B550m Pro4 even after looking at this one. The Pro4 has more robust VRM cooling, more sata ports, M.2 wifi, another Pciex16 slot, and most importantly, it's cheaper

Thanks! I got to get my research done.

I think you mean the B450m Pro 4 board - the B550 hasn't been released yet.

I have the ASRock B450m Pro 4 and it is a solid board. A lot of features for a great price. Worked with a 3600 right out of the box.

In for 1, I need a Mobo and I have all the other components ready for a build on Ryzen 3700X.

So far ordered B450 Tomahawk Max, Asus B550M and MSI MAG x570.

B450 Tomahawk Max is ready for pickup until Thursday, but I am in need of a wifi board so I on the fence whether to pick this up or not.

The ASRock B550M Pro4 has definitely released https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089VY5...6Eb8EW1Q1C

Even though this is regular price its still not bad for those wanting a new board now since these are all pretty hard to find, primarily the MATX FF boards. Still waiting on a X570 Asus but the 550 here is way cheaper really tempted....

These lines of motherboards make absolutely no sense to me. The x570 variants of these same boards are virtually identical in price, sometimes cheaper.. and clearly better. The fk is the point?

Since I am looking at both chipsets for my next build, the point is the 550 removes the general purposes lanes of PCIe 4.0 which the X570 has. That means that only GFX cards can run on 4.0 by default on the 550 boards while the X570 chipset allows for new lanes for accessories such as SSD's and other devices.

So in short if you dont plan on getting PCIe4.0 hard drives or other accessories in the near future save yourself the money and just go with the 550 cause its a huge price drop for those additional general purpose lanes.

I'm confused though because it isn't cheaper.

For example the Asus Tuf Plus b550 is $160. The Tuf Plus x570 is $165.
What am I missing?

If you are running Linux or considering it in the future, Asus motherboards (at least AMD versions) aren't well supported. I've never been able to get suspend or hibernate to work using any Linux version on my Asus / AMD system and must shut everything down and power off the system every single time I stop work.
