AMD launched their second generation Ryzen processor back in April and with that we got the new X470 chipset, which for one supports the new Ryzen processors right out of the gate and offers some new features like Extended Frequency Range 2 and Precision Boost 2. Just like the initial Ryzen launch the higher-end X470 motherboards came first, and now we have the budget-minded B450 boards. While we call these budget boards, they really offer quite a lot and you get pretty much the same feature-set you get with X470. If you are running a single graphics card and don't need an abundance of USB ports one of these boards might be perfect for you and the money you save can be used towards a better graphics card or NVMe solid state drive. Today we are checking out the very small MSI B450i Gaming Plus AC motherboard, which is a mini-ITX board. Is this board perfect for your next small form factor build? Read on as we find out!
