MSI MPG B560I Gaming Edge Wi-Fi

The MSI MPG B560I Gaming Edge Wi-Fi is its only mini-ITX at present on B560, with a mixture of fairly premium quality controllers and features based on its Performance Gaming series. The design front includes an all-black PCB with metallic grey heatsinks, which includes the rear panel cover, power delivery heatsinks, and one M.2 heatsink. Providing power to the motherboard is a 24-pin 12 V ATX motherboard power input, in which a single 8-pin 12 V ATX input provides power to the CPU.

Along the bottom of the board is a single full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with ample storage capabilities on the mini-ITX form factor. The storage is headed up by one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot, one PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA M.2 slot, and four straight-angled SATA, including support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. In regards to memory support, the MSI MPG B560I Gaming Edge WIFI includes two memory slots, with support for up to 64 GB, and can accommodate up to DDR4-5200 memory.

On the rear panel, MSI includes one USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, and four USB 2.0 ports. For users planning on using Intel's integrated UHD graphics, there's an HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4 video output pairing and three 3.5 mm audio jacks powered by a Realtek ALC897 HD audio codec. The networking capabilities consist of a Realtek RTL8125B 2.5 GbE controller, with Intel's latest AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi providing both wireless and BT 5.2 connectivity.

    With pricing like that for both motherboards and cpus, and good availability Intel is becoming a great value option.
    Personally I don't see why I'd choose AMD cpu in 200-350USD bracket with local prices.

    "Intel great value option" LOL. How the mighty have fallen. Reply

    @ballsystemlord: Or in other words how AMD starts price gouging and becoming more anti-consumer. How the "value brand" is now too expensive for the average customers.

    (not disagreeing with you. Just showing the other side of the reality.)

    If it wasn't for AMD you might be in one of these Intel "value" motherboards, only you'd be paying 2x-3x as much for it....like you were about 4 years ago, remember? And there's no question that if it wasn't for AMD you'd be paying *huge sums* for ~14nm++++++++++++++++++++ CPUs Intel is selling now for bargain-basement prices *because* of AMD. Don't you realize that if not for AMD you'd be paying more, though the nose, for inferior components? Have you even checked to see that Z590 motherboards are ~$1k and up and can't even provide system-wide PCIe4 bus coverage? Heck, that's more expensive than the most expensive x570 motherboards. Welcome to the real side of reality....;) Without AMD there would be no competition in these markets at all and Intel would be selling the same--likely worse garbage--at stratospheric prices. Reply

    you sure about that ? i guess you forgot the wonderful <10% gen on gen performance increases we were getting before Zen was released, and the ever increasing prices for that performance ? or the fact that mainstream was stuck on quad core cpus and you NEEDED to get intel HEDT cpus to get anything more then 4 cores ?

    Tbf what AMD did to competition back then doesn't mean it's an excuse for them to copy Intel's playbook in the past. They can maintain their value position, but even the lowest Ryzen 5000 SKU is a bit overpriced for consumers here in the Philippines. Maybe Intel needs to thank AMD for being in such a position that is desired for consumers. Reply

    Even the 3000 series? I've seen the 3000 series for pretty good prices around the world, the 5000 is supply constrained and demand outstrips supply so there is no reason to lower the price....That's how markets work Reply

    I remember not that long ago an AMD 'budget board' would have HDMI/eSATA/Toslink/6 USB ports (some USB3) and decent audio chip etc. and the Intel budget board would give you just VGA/PS2/ serial, a couple of USB2 and a parallel port instead. Terrible. Reply

    Such a dumb argument, you do realize than intel had massive generations jumps from core 2 duo, to intel core 1st gen, then second gen. While amds overpriced phenoms flopped. All these companies are the same, lack of competition means lack of advancement Reply
