Judging by that list, I only see 5 mITX boards. One each from Asus, GB, and MSI and two from ASRock.

Yeah, now that amd said they would give AGESIS support for b450, I may not need to buy a new b550 motherboard. If I can get an ITX MB cheap enough with what I need, I may just upgrade anyways. If not, my other 2 PC builds don't need ITX so it's great to know such a huge list of b550's are on the way!

I miss the days when everybody didn't make 15 different motherboards for each chipset.
Yeah, they are really milking it with such minimal differences you'd think it would be cheaper to just produce less SKU's and sell more of them. They do it so peol e buying just look and are like, well $10 more and I get a better model. $10 more than that and I can get the next better one. If they were more defined price differences people wouldn't even contemplate moving up to the next model. Sure is annoying though to figure out what the ACTUAL differences are. Sometimes it's just they added a plastic tray to cover the board to make it pretty... othertimes it's VRM improvements, or RGB crap. Other times it's a different onboard audio chip. Half the time the manufacturers compare function doesn't even point out the differences because it only highlights the big things, not all the little nuances.
