Lightning-Speed Connectivity

A comprehensive array of powerful I/O ports — including two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, two 2.5G Ethernet and four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports — enables 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 displays and extends PCIe bandwidth to up to 32 Gbps.

Experience faster data transfers and high-res video streaming with two Intel 2.5G Ethernet (I225-V) ports. ProArt B550-Creator also features CreationFirst, exclusive network optimization software that allocates more bandwidth to speed up essential apps for your work.

Unthrottled Performance

ProArt B550-Creator provides robust power delivery and comprehensive cooling to handle the latest AMD Ryzen™ processors. It also supports PCIe 4.0, providing everything you need for the most demanding multithreaded tasks like 3D or video rendering and software compiling.

Robust Power Design

ProArt B550-Creator provides robust power delivery to handle the full power of latest Ryzen processors and improve overall system stability.

  • 12+2 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest AMD Ryzen processors demand.
  • The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry and ensures ultra-smooth power delivery to the CPU.
  • The ProCool socket is built to exacting specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines, enabling lower impedance and better heat dissipation.
  • Superior alloy chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, providing a higher level of performance than the industry standard.
  • The 6-layer PCB quickly dissipates heat around the VRM to improve overall system stability and give the CPU more overclocking headroom.

Cool to the Core

The VRM and M.2 heatsink designs ensure effective cooling of the CPU and SSD to ensure system stability and fast storage performance for seamless content creation workflows.

  • VRM Heatsink & Thermal Pad
  • M.2 Heatsink
  • Stack Cool 3+

Large, high-mass heatsinks with an extensive surface area along with high-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from VRM and choke areas to improve heat dissipation.

Industry-Leading Security

Advanced security from ASUS Control Center Express to protect your data and system.

  • USB Port Management: Enable or disable the USB port or set it to Read Only to prevent data leaks.
  • Software Blacklist: A software blacklist is also available to prevent running of high-risk applications for IT security.
  • Registry Editor On/Off: Remotely disable the Registry Editor on client devices to prevent unauthorized changes to system configurations for enhanced security.

ProArt Gives You More

ProArt-exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive system monitoring, audio and networking enhancements that smooth your workflow.

  • Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation: With working-from-home becoming the new normal, clear online communication is critical, even for content creators. Our latest audio utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are smartly pared back so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while in calls. *An audio splitter (3.5 mm audio jack Y-cable) is necessary when using a 3.5 mm headset.
  • A user-friendly interface designed to enhance your workflow through central system monitoring and control of all connected ProArt Series products, including motherboards and displays.1. Fan Mode: Fan mode quickly configures your system’s cooling by selecting the preferred fan setting.2. Task Group: Applications that are frequently used together can be arranged into groups and launched with a single click.
  • Network-optimization software allows you to prioritize applications in order to allocate more bandwidth to speed up essential apps and tasks.

    1. Adaptive Intelligence Mode: Intelligently prioritizes bandwidth of heavy-use applications by identifying in-use applications and using foreground acceleration.

    2. Creation First Mode: Allocates more bandwidth to active content-creation applications to optimize network traffic, making your workflow more efficient.
