The X570 is the current AM4 flagship chipset from AMD that’s used in combination with Ryzen CPUs. It should stay the flagship chipset for the Ryzen 4000 series since there are no rumors or leaks of AMD releasing a new chipset specifically designed for Ryzen 4000 CPUs. That means that all future Ryzen owners can pick between the three current chipsets: the B450, B550, and the X570.

If you’re planning on getting an X570 motherboard, you have a wide array of options. That’s why we’ve created a list made of the best X570 motherboards. Read on if you want to know which X570 motherboards are the best buys right now.

At the moment, there are plenty of quality X570 boards in all price brackets. The situation isn’t as good when it comes to form factors other than ATX but we still picked a few quality mATX and Mini-ITX models. But first, let’s talk about obvious question: why pick an X570 board when B550 boards are so good and include the majority of features found on X570 boards?

Should I Get A X570 or B550 Motherboard?

X570 boards still make sense to buy, especially if you plan on using multiple PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs. X570 boards come with more PCIe 4.0 lanes. This leads to them having multiple PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots that feature full, x4 bandwidth. On the other hand, B550 boards can host either one M.2 x4 slot or two M.2 x2 slots, either limiting the bandwidth or the number of PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots.

But many B550 boards feature much better VRMs compared to budget and mainstream X570 boards. Further, many newer boards also boast 2.5Gb LAN ports, compared to 1Gb LAN ports available on most X570 boards. X570 models can feature more M.2 slots as well as more fast USB ports, as well as have more internal board connectors for USB ports or case fans. As for the CPU support, both B550 and X570 will offer full support for the upcoming Ryzen 4000 CPUs.

In the end, B550 boards are a great choice for most users and once they receive a price reduction, they will offer excellent features for the price. As for the X570 boards, they are here for users who want more connectivity options, who need multiple PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with full bandwidth, and for those who just want to have a flagship motherboard.

Also, don’t forget about B450 motherboards. They are still selling and if you can find a quality B450 board at its regular price, it can provide an excellent home for your Ryzen CPU in case you don’t care about PCIe 4.0 support or having multiple M.2 slots available on your motherboard. Also, you’ll be able to run Ryzen 4000 CPUs on B450 boards, which is another plus. And now, let’s show you the best X570 boards on the market.

When it comes to budget boards, the market includes lots of models but most aren’t suitable for anything more powerful than the Ryzen 7 3700X. Their VRMs are too weak and their feature sets are poor, to say the least. This is why we recommend everyone to save ten or twenty bucks more and get the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (non-Wi-Fi version). The base version of this board has everything you might need in a mainstream board, for a price that’s just about ten percent higher compared to the cheapest X570 boards.

The VRM is good enough to host any Ryzen CPU. It gets a bit warm when running the 3900X but thermals are still well within the acceptable range. Other features include support for up to 5100Mhz DDR4 memory, two m.2 slots, eight SATA III ports, and a gigabit LAN. The board includes three PCIe ports out of which one is PCIe 4.0 and runs at x8. The other two ports are PCIe 3.0 and run at x8 and x4. You can also find three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots.

Rear panel host seven USB 3.2 ports on of which is USB-C, along with one DisplayPort and HDMI, and a selection of audio jacks. The board doesn’t include any OC-friendly feature but that was expected on a board this cheap. If you don’t need multi GPU support, a ton of USB ports and internal headers, or a board that is made for overclocking, the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (non-Wi-Fi version) is a perfect choice. And for just a bit more money you can get the Wi-Fi version of this board.

When it comes to alternatives you have the Wi-Fi version of this board, which is a bit more expensive. Then you have the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, which is very similar in features, comes with Wi-Fi, and costs about twenty percent more than the non-Wi-Fi TUF model.

Finally, the MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk is the best board in this price bracket when looking solely at the VRM quality. If you want the best VRM get this one. The X570 Tomahawk also includes nice additions such as debug LEDs and BIOS flashback button on the rear panel. Other than that, the board’s very similar to the ASUS and Gigabyte models.

Best Mid-Range X570 Motherboard

Wi-FiYes

The mid-range market includes two amazing boards that are excellent for any user. The MSI MEG X570 Unify is targeted at overclockers since it features a beastly VRM along with features such as POST code, debug LEDs, power and reset buttons found on the PCB, and BIOS flashback and clear CMOS buttons on the rear panel. The audio section is pretty solid, with the Realtek ALC1220 Coded behind the helm.

Aside from those features, the Unify offers support for up to 5000MHz DDR4, three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, four SATA III ports, 2.5Gb LAN port, and Wi-Fi 6 chip that also comes with Bluetooth 5.1. When it comes to PCIe ports, the board includes three PCIe 4.0 x16 ports two of which work at x16 mode and one working at x4 mode. You also get two PCIe x1 slots as well as support for Crossfire and SLI. The rear panel includes six USB 3.2 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, along with a selection of audio jacks and a PS/2 port that somehow crawled back from 2006.

The Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra isn’t as OC-friendly as the X570 Unity. It lacks the most advanced features sans debug LEDs. The board also includes six SATA III ports instead of four and comes with a bit better audio department. If you don’t care about stuff like the POST code or BIOS flashback, there’s not much difference between the two boards.

As for the alternatives, users who’re looking for a quality RGB X570 board should check out the ASRock X570 Taichi. It costs the same as the MSI and Gigabyte models and comes with similar features as the MSI board. That means excellent overclock support but also eight SATA III ports and amazing RGB lighting. Another cool RGB pick is the X570 Phantom Gaming X, also from ASRock. If you want a white motherboard, look no further than the ASUS Prime X570-Pro. And if you want a mid-range X570 board from ASUS but not a white one, the ROG Strix X570-E and ROG Strix X570-F are excellent choices.

As for the high-end market, you have two top-notch models. Both the MSI MEG X570 Godlike and the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme include everything one might need. You have excellent RGB lighting so RGB fans won’t be disappointed. But you also get top of the line specs. Like the support for ultra-fast memory (5000MHz on the MSI board and 4400MHz on the Aorus Xtreme) and a ton of M.2 slots. You have three M.2 slots on the Aorus Xtreme and five M.2 slots on the X570 Godlike (three on the board and two on the included expansion card). You also get four SATA III ports on the Godlike and six SATA III ports on the Aorus Xtreme.

Both boards include Wi-Fi 6 chips with Bluetooth 5 connectivity. Next, we have four PCIe x16 slots on the Godlike and three PCIe x16 ports on the Aorus Xtreme. And yes, both boards support SLI and Crossfire. Both boards come with dual gigabit LAN ports. You have 2.5Gb and 1Gb on the X570 Godlike, along with one 10Gb port on the included expansion card. The Aorus Xtreme features 10Gb port and 1Gb port, both found on the rear panel.

Rear panels on these boards are packed to the brim. You get eight USB 3.2 ports on the Aorus Xtreme along with four USB 2.0 ports and a selection of audio jacks. The Godlike features Six USB 3.2 ports along with a 6.3mm headphone jack and a selection of regular. 3.5mm audio jacks. Audio sections are excellent on both boards but if you want the ultimate audio experience, get the Aorus Xtreme.

Of course, both motherboards feature every advanced OC feature available. You have your Clear CMOS and BIOS flashback buttons as well as power and reset buttons found on PCBs. The MSI board includes a small OLED screen that plays the role of POST code and can also show various other info. On the Aorus you also have a small screen but here you also have the classic POST code, found on the middle right edge of the board. If you want something a bit cheaper, get the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula. It’s a bit cheaper than the other two while providing almost the same set of features.

Best Micro-ATX X570 Motherboard

Sadly, the mATX X570 market literally includes just a couple of models. And the best of the pack is the ASRock X570M Pro4. But this board is far from being a great product. First of all, its VRM is quite disappointing. If you want to get anything more powerful than the 3700X and want an mATX board, get a quality B550 mATX board such as the MSI B550 Mortar or the Wi-Fi variant of the same board.

But if you want this board, well, it comes with an okay set of features for the price. Support for DDR4 4200MHz, two M.2 slots, and eight SATA III ports. The board itself doesn’t include Wi-Fi connectivity but it does come with an M.2 slot dedicated for a Wi-Fi card. Next, we have two PCIe 4.0 x16 slots one of which works at x16 and the other at x4. The board also hosts one PCIe x1 slot.

You also get a gigabit LAN, the Realtek ALC1200 Audio Codec powering the audio section, and solid white design of the board. The rear panel includes eight USB 3.2 ports one of which is USB-C along with a selection of audio jacks and a DisplayPort and HDMI combo. Overall, this board’s solid for budget and mid-range Ryzen CPUs but if you want to get a flagship CPU, get the MSI B550 Mortar.

Best Mini-ITX X570 Motherboard

ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming

Wi-FiYes

The Mini-ITX X570 boards aren’t in large supply, but there are some great models out there. The ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming should be the best choice for most users. You get a regularly sized Mini-ITX board that should fit into every Mini-ITX case. The board supports DDR4 memory up to 4800Mhz, it comes with two M.2 slots and four SATA III ports. You also get a single PCIe 4.0 x16 slot and a gigabit LAN.

The Wi-Fi card supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 and the audio section includes the SupremeFX 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC S1220A and it should offer superb audio experience. As for the VRM, this board can host any Ryzen CPU, even the 3950X, without any issue. Another quite good choice would be the Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro. It’s very similar to the ASUS model, but it offers worse audio section as well as less powerful VRM. This is why it sports so much lower price compared to the ROG Strix X570-I.

And if you want something even more powerful, take a look at the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact. This board offers even more features but it’s also a bit longer, falling into the DTX form factor, making it larger than a regular Mini-ITX board. If you want to get it, first check out whether the board can fit inside your case.
