X570 Plus

I think it’s safe to say that X570 boards have gone from interesting to incredible since their introduction in 2019. We went from the chipset fans being an issue, to something we rarely if ever talk about anymore. Now, in 2020 (yes, I know, the X570-Plus is from 2019) we even have refined offerings like the TUF-Gaming X570-Plus for the entry-level and budget space. In that same period, AGESA updates have improved compatibility and performance, making the whole experience that much better .

ASUS Introduces ROG STRIX X370-I and B350-I Mini-ITX Motherboards for AMD Ryzen


Mini-ITX boards are among the most difficult to produce. Their diminutive 6.7” x 6.7” dimensions leave little real estate for slots and ports, let alone the extra features that make ROG unique. We’re not willing to compromise your experience for a compact footprint, so it takes some time and creativity to make everything fit. But it’s worth the effort, because our new Strix X370-I Gaming and Strix B350-I Gaming motherboards for Socket AM4 raise the bar for small-form-factor Ryzen builds. They match the cutting-edge features of their full-sized siblings, including liquid-ready cooling and addressable RGB lighting, and they combine an M.2 SSD heatsink and amped-up audio on an innovative riser card.
