Type Motherboard
Price $185 US

Test Setup

For testing, I used the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. The chip is the fastest CPU in the AMD Zen 3 family and rocks 16 cores and 32 threads. It is the ultimate chip and the best way to know if the ASRock X570S PG Riptide does support high-end chips at a sub-$200 US pricing.
