PC Gamer Hardware Awards: What is the best motherboard in 2021?

If you have ever pieced together your own gaming PC, then you know the importance of a high-quality motherboard. Although you can usually use a basic board, and it actually makes sense for budget consoles, for mid-range and high-end builds, spending a bit more here can make a big difference. Whether it means better connectivity, improved audio or more headroom for overclocking, this is a textbook example that gives you value for money.

2021 is an interesting year for gaming motherboards, although it is mainly for Intel platforms. AMD X570 and B550 motherboards saw some updates at the beginning of the year, but in general, motherboards based on these chipsets were released last year. The manufacturer did introduce a “silent” update for X570, cleverly called X570S, which has been installed on a large number of updated motherboards-the new motherboard removes the small fan found in the first generation of products and updates the feature list , If you want to build an AMD machine, it’s worth tracking down.
