26 AMD socket AM4 motherboards review: the best boards for Ryzen

Which manufacturer offers the best base for your Ryzen build?


Power consumption

We measure the power consumption during two scenarios: idle (where we determine an average based on 5 minutes of idling) and under load, where we measure the maximum power consumption during Cinebench 15.

As usual the boards with few added features consume the least power - the omitted extra chips and controllers don't consume any energy in this case. In general the boards from ASRock and Gigabyte are tuned a bit more power efficiently when idling compared to ASUS boards, however the flagship models of all manufacturers use more power than the budget models.
