I got this board and a 3600X a couple of years ago, immediately after launch, and been very happy with it. Gigabyte kept updating the BIOS. Overclocking works well. Used it with a 5700 XT, 3060 Ti, 3070, now a 6800 XT. Very stable.
Overall, this is a great price I would say.

In general, you are right that B550<X570 but there is overlap comparing lower-end X570 and higher-end B550.
"Officially" they don't. Official B550 support is limited to 3XXX processors and above and didn't support 3XXX"G" series processors.

In practice, most boards seem to support 2XXX processors, but that's something the OEMs have been doing as opposed to AMD.

I bought this board March 2020 with a 3600 (non x).

No problems at all. Super stable. I'd buy it again, I paid $179 (maybe on sale?) or $199 for it and that was a fine price at the time. Good discount.

If you're someone looking for a board and want the absolute very best, you should consider looking through the "ltt motherboard tier list" (google that) and you'll see this board doesn't rank very well there. If I had gone there, I may have bought something else.

In 2004 I had a MSI board, upgraded in 2012 to a Gigabyte board (for my Sandy Bridge) and upgraded again in 2020, opted for another Gigabyte board, since my first Gigabyte board worked so well.

Sorry for the late reply.

Asrock Phantom 4ac is better than this Gigabyte Gaming X. Gaming X literally has a Realtek ALC887 onboard audio chip. Like I said on the first page of this 'deal,' it's not hot.
Phatom 4AC is in the same category in terms of VRMs but with better audio (Realtek ALC1200) and has wifi+BT. It doesn't have BIOS Flashback feature where you don't need a CPU/GPU installed to update the BIOS, which is important if you somehow get an older revision of the BIOS which doesn't yet support Zen3 (your 5600X). Shouldn't be a problem unless you're unlucky. You can always bring it to a shop or request a free CPU loaner from AMD to flash your mobo.

There was this deal yesterday that was actually hot.
