AMD has announced its new successor to the B450 chipset with the new B550 motherboards – released in tandem with the newly-released AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and 3100.

The new B550 chipset improves on the B450 motherboards by now supporting the new PCIe 4.0 standard – great for blazing fast PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs – at a more affordable price point than the X570 chipset (which is currently the only chipset to support PCIe 4.0) for Zen 2 processors.

It has been announced that the new B550 chipset motherboards will in fact not be compatible with earlier generation Ryzen processors, such as the Ryzen 2000 and 1000 series of processors, as well as the Ryzen 3000 Series with Radeon Graphics – although AMD Ryzen 3000 processors *should* be compatible with the new B550 Chipset. In addition, it’s important to note that the B550 chipset, as well as the X570 chipset, will be compatible with the upcoming Ryzen Zen 3 processors launching later this year.

Below is a graphic of the compatibility of the Ryzen family of processors and the current chipset range:
