No that's S/PDIF (optical audio).


ScottJC

yup! I wish more motherboards had it, mine certainly doesn't. Would get better audio on my headset if I did


foxtrotuniform6996

Pretty sure most z boards do

The bios reset is usually a small black circle. Facing upwards from the motherboard.


WoodyRover

Looking at manuals, it appears this motherboard does not have a flashback function at all.


Legend5V

Do you know what ASUS flashback buttons look like?


sgaisnsvdis

Asus will you usually put a USB port with an above small tactile button that will flash. If this is the same board you have, then you don't have a flashnack button and will need to update bios via using another CPU.


Legend5V

I was planning on buying this board, but now I’m gonna dish out another 15$ for an MSI one with flashback. Better safe than spending another 150 on some random weak 3000 series cpu to get my 5700x to work


sgaisnsvdis

You might not need to, some newer motherboards have recent updates. The box will usually say "Ryzen 5000 ready" or something of the sort. I'd say check first


Williams_Gomes

You don't need to buy another cpu to update the BIOS. AMD gives you the option to borrow one CPU for that, just search about it.


jepal357

Yeah the Asus prime is like the base model of Asus motherboards


Thatfonvdude

the asus prime b450+ has a bios flashback option, but the only b550 ones that have flashback to my knowledge are the ROG-strix and TUF boards asus offers.


miatheirish

My tuf b550 has a button next to a UBS port that says bio flash


Bosscharacter

It should be a little black button(That's how it is on my ASUS Prime B450M-A II) if that helps at all.


rabmed116

ASUS PRIME B550-PLUS owner here, no it does not have flashback.


llamapii

Oh my sweet summer child.


Legend5V

Lol, I know it’s an Audio thing now


kvg121

Lmao that's just optical audio port


rage_manin_sbk

That port it's a optical audio output


MistaWolf

Am I really that old now?


icantbeatyourbike

Yeah I thought that too man…I still use my optical out, is that weird?


rob12189

That’s probably an optical audio out port, looks like no bios flashback button from that photo


Carloscj6

Tell me this is a troll


xComradeKyle

Obvious troll is obvious


Dumpling_Killer

It doesnt have a bios flashback. its not *fancy*.


PGisHARD

Dude


manzari

I think only TUF and ROG series have it. You gotta use the BIOS itself to upgrade it using USB stick.


mAckAdAms4k

I have a 6 years old asus deluxe ii that has one,it has two arrows in a circular motion on it.
