The ProArt B550-Creator motherboard comes with a comprehensive array of powerful I/O ports — including two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, two Intel® 2.5G Ethernet and four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports — enabling quick data transfers and extensive storage options with flexible, hassle-free connectivity. Each Thunderbolt™ 4 port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest high-speed devices and drives. Thunderbolt 4 also supports up to two external 4K UHD displays or one 8K display.
The two Intel 2.5G Ethernet (I225-V) ports enable faster transfers of large files across local networks — ideal for copying large files to network-attached storage (NAS) devices, streaming high-res video and sharing assets with colleagues. ProArt B550-Creator also features CreationFirst, exclusive network optimization software that allocates more bandwidth to speed up essential apps for creative work.
ProArt B550-Creator provides robust power delivery and comprehensive cooling to handle the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors, ensuring incredible performance for even the most demanding creative tasks. Its 12+2 power stage VRM is ready for the top Ryzen chips, and 8+4-pin ProCool auxiliary power connectors with solid pins ensure steady and stable power delivery to those stages.
To keep thermals under control, high-mass heatsinks with extensive surface areas as well as high-quality thermal pads transfer heat from the VRM and choke areas. Together with an efficient M.2 heatsink design, ProArt B550-Creator effectively cools both the CPU and SSD for rock-solid system stability and fast storage performance, delivering seamless content-creation workflows.
