ASRock B650E Taichi Lite AMD AM5 Motherboard Review

++++ The ASRock B650E Taichi Lite motherboard is currently available in stores for around 360 Euro (11/2023) and is therefore in the upper mid-range of AMD AM5 motherboards in terms of price.

Thanks to the B650E chipset, all the latest interfaces are on board to form the perfect basis for a high-performance gaming PC. Three M.2 slots (1x Gen5, 2x Gen4), DDR5, USB4 with 40Gb/s and Quickcharge PD3.0 with 27W offer everything you could wish for in a motherboard. The equipment is practically identical to the B650E Taichi, as only nice-to-have components have been saved and none of the useful features have been removed.

6GHz WiFi-6E AX, Bluetooth, 2.5Gbit LAN and a high-quality audio section and several RGB connections leave nothing to be desired.

The B650E Taichi Lite also makes no compromises when it comes to the overpowered power supply for the CPU. 24 output stages with 105A each for the CPU alone are still unsurpassed.

For tweakers and hardcore overclockers, the board offers buttons for power, reset and BIOS flashback as well as a 7-segment Dr. Debug LED display.

With this rock-solid overall result, the ASRock B650E Taichi Lite motherboard easily wins our Purchase Tip Award 11/2023. There are hardly any AM5 motherboards with more features for the price.

Here you can order the ASRock B650E Taichi Lite at a reasonable price. *Ad
