It is not clear what the terms on the motherboard mean
« on: October 19, 2020, 05:20:11 pm »
Attached is a B550 AORUS MASTER motherboard and I do not understand the terms listed

Thanks in advance to those who explain, why, how and why

That I will understand.


1. What is the difference between a B550 or X570 chipset

The transfer rate? Compatibility?
 A weak and new board gives more new options

Like memory speed, connections and more ...


2. What is Onboard Graphics? Do I buy a 5900 processor? Is it related to me?

2.1 How the video card in the board supports Support for HDMI 2.1 version, HDCP 2.3, and HDR that is not in the video card board
And there is no Onboard Graphics graphics card that gives HDMI 2.1?


3. Audio for Support for DTS: X® Ultra is listed in HDMI format
Do not understand how I get this format?
MY computer will have an NVIDIA video card that is not connected to the board driver
So how is DTS: X® Ultra supported on the board?


4. LAN - Register Realtek® 2.5GbE LAN chip (2.5 Gbit / 1 Gbit / 100 Mbit)
The fastest line iS 1000mb What gives me 2.5 GB? Just for beauty?


4.1 Some boards come with 2 LAN lines, why do I need 2 LAN lines?


Thanks for explaining
