Hello Friends,

I shortlisted this both motherboards B550 Tomahawk or B550 Gaming Edge WIFI Motherboard. The only difference I could find is the Gaming Edge comes in a premium MPG along with WIFI.

I am looking for a WIFI & BT board but I am worried whether Gaming Edge has been compromised with VRM compared to Tomahawk.

So, please let me know which one I should go with since the cost difference between these 2 is not that big.

Thank you for the help!!

I can't find any differences between the two, other than that the Tomahawk has a second LAN port (1Gbps) where the Edge has WiFi. That is next to the 2.5Gbit LAN ports that they both have.

The Tomahawk also has 4x 3.5mm analog audio and an optical audio port (S/PDIF), where the Edge has 5x analog audio ports.

I'm only naming these things since the VRMs and mosfets seem to be indentical on both boards (check rows 195 and 197: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smj5dh97n32wJqm5dkdDcQt8ID7vH52-lKzaaXUUQx8/edit#gid=0
