The Gigabyte B550 Vision D is an ATX motherboard for AMD's Ryzen processors. It is built with workstation usage in mind, and offers a solid combination of I/O ports and build quality.

In terms of connectivity, this board is very well equipped with eight traditional USB ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports (a rarity on AMD systems), dual gigabit Ethernet ports, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5, and both digital and analog audio outputs. A DisplayPort input is present which feeds into the Thunderbolt ports, since they can carry video along with data. It also has an HDMI output, but that only functions when a CPU with integrated graphics is used - and we don't offer those in our systems here at Puget, as that feature is limited to the lowest-end processors in AMD's line.

Internally this motherboard has four DDR4 memory slots, supporting up to 128GB of RAM, and four SATA III ports plus two M.2 slots for connecting drives. Three PCI-Express slots of various speeds are available to handle a mix of expansion cards.

Note: This board has one Gen4 M.2 slot and one Gen3 M.2 slot. Putting a Gen4 M.2 in the Gen3 slot will result in Gen3 speed. Also populating both M.2 slots will disable the bottom PCIe slot. Please talk to a consultant if you have additional questions.
