The ASRock X570S PG Riptide features the AM4 socket which can support AMD Ryzen CPUs all the way up to Ryzen 5000 series. The motherboard houses the AM4 socket and is powered by an 8+4 pin connector configuration that powers the 10 Phase Digi Power (Dr.MOS) VRMs. The board offers support for up to 128 GB memory capacity with speeds of up to DDR4-5000+ (OC). The VRMs are covered by a single-sided aluminum heatsink with an XXL Aluminum Alloy design.

Expansion on the motherboard includes three PCIe 4.0 x16 slots, three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots, and dual M.2 Gen 4 slots out of which one is covered by an M.2 armor heatsink. Storage options include six SATA III ports and the PCH next to the slots is passively cooled by a large aluminum heatsink block. The PCH heatsink features ASRock's Polychrome Sync RGB LEDs. There's also an additional M.2 slot for WiFi support located next to the audio circuitry. I/O on the motherboard includes 1 Antenna, 1 PS/2, 1 HDMI, 1 SPDIF, 2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 4 USB 3.2 Gen 1, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 2.5G LAN port, and a 7.1 channel HD Audio jack powered by the ALC897 codec.
