Gigabyte B550 Vision D - AMD Socket AM4 Motherboard with Thunderbolt 3
This is the second motherboard for AMD CPU with Thunderbolt 3 built-in. It's very similar in I/O arrangement with the Z490 Vision D. In fact it uses the same Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 controller and DP-IN. Due to no certification, the product website describes these ports as USB-C with Titan Ridge! 😀
https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B550-VISION-D-rev-10 - The section on USB-C with Titan Ridge even shows the Thunderbolt logo and 40Gb/s. A fun way to get around Intel's certification.
Only one DisplayPort input though. Good enough for a 4K display but not 5K or more.
The ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G has two DisplayPort inputs. Other motherboards with two DisplayPort inputs are X299. I can't find an AMD motherboard with two DisplayPort inputs. What was the motherboard that had one DisplayPort input on the back panel and another on the motherboard itself? I forget...
I think Google has a problem searching Gigabyte motherboards (like the page doesn't fully render when it's scanning for words) so only the title is known. For example, I can search for:
"b550" "vision" site:gigabyte.com
but not for:
"b550" "vision" "displayport in" site:gigabyte.com
I would like to be able to just download a database of motherboards...
This AMD B550 is now available for $259.99 [Amazon link] [Newegg link]. A nice deal for on-board Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 on an AMD system. If I didn't have too many test builds already I would be all over this board.
