The ASUS B550M-PLUS is a Micro ATX motherboard for AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen processors. It sacrifices some of the expansion capacity that a larger motherboard can offer, but still supports up to 128GB of DDR4 memory and multiple SATA and M.2 drives.

For external connectivity, it also has both analog and digital audio outputs, 2.5Gb Ethernet, WiFi 6, Bluetooth, eight USB ports of varying speeds (including one Type C), and even a legacy PS/2 port.

William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
A couple of oddities about this board are worth noting, but shouldn't impact most users:

- The HDMI and DisplayPort connections on this motherboard are for CPUs with built-in graphics, but the higher-end Ryzen chips we carry don't support that feature (since almost everyone uses a dedicated video card)

- The onboard NIC does not support Linux, so users of that OS will want to have a dedicated network card added
