Starting off with CPU-based performance from the Ryzen 9 3950X, we see both of ASUS’ B550 options putting in solid performance numbers. Multi-threaded scoring is comparable or within touching distance of competing B550 and X570 options. And we see reasonable single-threaded scores from Cinebench R20.
It must, however, be noted that Gigabyte’s competing B550 Aorus Master was consistently equal or faster than ASUS’ options in the CPU-focused benchmarks. Gigabyte’s motherboard was better able to maintain slightly higher boost clocks with our Ryzen 9 3950X.
