Asus Prime B350-PLUS – Design and Features

This board’s lower price means it has one of AMD’s more affordable chipsets. Don’t think that Asus has used the cheapest bit of silicon it can find, though – the B350 sits in the middle of the range, below the X370 but above products that are designed for budget boards and small-form-factor slates.

The means the B350 chipset still has solid features. It supports dual-graphics, albeit only for AMD Radeon hardware, and it caters for all of the usual RAID levels and CPU overclocking.

In other areas, though, it’s a little cut down. It supports four native SATA ports rather than six, and two USB 3.1 ports – three times fewer than in the range-topping X370 chipset.

Many Intel boards will have more connectivity, too. Even mid-range boards tend to have six SATA ports and four USB 3 connectors, and this board has one M.2 port – while many Intel offerings include two.

If you do opt for this board, make sure you use a Ryzen processor, as the extra power and PCI lanes delivered by the fresh silicon means you can use faster M.2 SSDs and DDR4 memory when compared to older A-series APUs.

This affordable AMD board is fine elsewhere, although it rarely pushes the envelope. The peak memory speed of 3200MHz with Ryzen chips is fine, but other AMD processors and APUs see that figure decline to 2400MHz. It doesn’t have USB 3.1 type-C on its backplate, and there are only three audio output jacks.

It has one full-speed PCI-Express x16 slot and one slower, so dual graphics are out – but, unusually, it has two standard PCI sockets alongside its two PCI-Express x1 ports. That’s rare these days, and it’s great for older expansion cards.

There are no on-board buttons or displays, and the rest of the board hardly catches the eye. I like its black PCB, and it’s covered with red lines and accents, but its heatsinks are tiny and there aren’t any RGB LEDs – only crimsons lights. The board only has three fan headers, which is fine for a basic rig but not ideal if you need more cooling .

It’s only got basic audio and networking, too, and no Wi-Fi.

There aren’t any extras on this board, but that’s less important – and less damning – on such an affordable slab of PCB.
