MSI has just announced two new motherboards in preparation for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5000-series CPU’s. The MEG B550 Unify and Meg B550 Unify-X are geared towards serious overclockers boasting new world records once again. Equipped with the B550 chipset, both models are compatible with Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series processors(except Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G).
The MEG B550 Unify is loaded with features. There are four M.2 connectors, three of which have the lightning-fast Gen 4 capabilities. The included heatsinks are double-sided for maximum cooling. Overclocking is made possible due to its direct 14+2 power phases and beefy 90 Amp power stages.
The MEG B550 Unify-X is for the extreme overclocker and only features a pair of DDR4 slots. This is said to yield a clearer memory signal and allow for increased memory overclocking.
The retail price has not been released as of the time of this article, but expectations are for them to be in around the $250-$300 range, right around where the current MEG X570 Unify boards sit. Here is MSI’s official press release.

QUADRUPLE M.2 CONNECTORS WITH DOUBLE SIDE SHIELD FROZR
MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard features exclusive onboard quadruple M.2 connectors for the maximum storage performance. Three of them support Lightning Gen 4 solution which is the fastest onboard storage on the market with up to 64 Gb/s transfer speed.
To sustain the higher performance of ultra-fast storage devices, the MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard features exclusive double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr. This next-generation M.2 thermal solution prevents throttling by offering the best thermal protection to make sure that SSD maintains maximum performance.
DIRECT 14+2 PHASES WITH 90A POWER STAGE
To handle the high-performance CPU, the MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard features extreme power designs including a total of direct 14+2 digital power phases, 90Amp power stage and Titanium choke III. Combining dual power connectors and exclusive Core Boot technology, the MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard is ready to break the world record.
PREMIUM THERMAL SOLUTION
Cooling is what an enthusiast gamer would care about and the MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard adopts a premium thermal solution to cool down your system. An aluminum cover with an extended heatsink on top of the power delivery circuits can effectively help dissipate excessive heat. Other than that, a heat-pipe connected from this larger heatsink to another MOS heatsink and an improved thermal pad means better heat conduction.
2.5G LAN WITH WI-FI 6 AX
MEG B550 UNIFY series motherboard features onboard 2.5G LAN plus the latest Wi-Fi 6 AX solution. 2.5G LAN provides incredible data transfer speed faster than ever before. The Wi-Fi 6 AX solution is a revolutionary network with up to 4x network capacity and efficiency in high signal density environments.
DEDICATED FOR EXTREME OVERCLOCKING
The MEG B550 UNIFY offers 4 DIMM slots, but there is a special edition for extreme overclockers – MEG B550 UNIFY-X. This model comes with only 2 DIMM slots for an even clearer memory signal to explore the boundaries of memory overclocking and is ready to surpass all limits!
MSI’s in-house overclocker, Kovan Yang pushing the DDR4 speeds to an incredible 6536MHz, show the strength on memory overclocking performance for MEG B550 UNIFY-X.
