Hi Guys,

I'm going to buy an AMD x570 motherboard, but there are so many variants.

My main requirement is to have the max and best perfomance from 2 SSD NVME and AMD Ryzen 9 5900X.

This are all x570 motherboards:
  • MSI MEG X570 UNIFY
  • MSI X570-A PRO
  • MSI X570 TOMAHAWK
  • MSI MEG X570 ACE
  • MSI X570 MPG Gaming Edge
  • MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS
  • MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON
  • Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme
  • Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE
  • ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming
  • ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME
  • ASUS TUF X570-PLUS
  • ASUS Prime X570-PRO
  • ...
Which one should I choose?
Does each one support 2 nvme at full speed and Ryzen 5900X?
Which one do you suggest for price/value?

Not all boards will be priced the same in all regions, which leads me to ask where are you located? As for the boards listed, what are you looking for apart from the storage? Why do you need 2 SSD's to run at their best? Also, you should be looking at higher end boards from that list, meaning the ones that are priced higher since the componentry on the VRM will be of higher quality...to say the least. People investing in a Ryzen 9 5900x aren't going to be leaving them at stock clocks.

I'd stay away from the Strix's, the TUF's and Prime's from Asus and the Gaming lineup's from MSI.

You're also overthinking using RAID 0 with PCIe 4.0 SSD's.

I'm in Europe/Italy.

The other thread made me realize that I don't need a RAID 0, but I'm going to use an NVME for boot and an NVME for a blockchain node, so I'd like to have both at full speed.

Other requirements are just a DDR4 RAM > 32 GB.

How can I select the higher ends board without looking at the price? Which specification should I check? For me all this motherboards looks the same with differences only on dissaptor/wifi and some port.

Just to narrow it down.
The mobo must have at least 2 m.2 slots that support pcie4x4.
