NZXT’s first AMD motherboard is the N7 B550. Like the Intel versions that preceded it, the N7 B550 has a sleek design with the option of either a black or white cover that covers the main body of the board itself. There is no doubt that NZXT hopes the pure look of the motherboard will make it an appealing alternative for anyone with a window on a PC case like NZXT’s own H-series.
Beyond its looks, the N7 B550 seems to offer very capable performance if a review from Tom’s Hardware is something to go for. Designed in collaboration with the established motherboard manufacturer ASRock, the motherboard uses the B550 chipset which works with both AMD Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series CPUs and offers PCIe 4.0 support. Integrated fan and RGB controllers mean that the components can be managed via NZXT̵
In terms of connectivity, there are an impressive 10 USB ports available on the back of the motherboard, including a USB Type-C port and two M.2 slots for NVMe storage. Wireless connectivity includes support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. Check out the review from Tom’s Hardware for a complete specification and performance.
It is a solid debut for a company that is usually better known for its PC cases and CPU coolers, although the reputation was dented earlier this year when it had to remember a PC case due to concerns about fire safety. The N7 B550 is available now for $ 229.99.
