ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

ASUS's Strix brand represents its more mid-range gaming focused offerings and the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming is one of two ATX sized Strix branded boards, with the X570-E being the more premium of the two models; the other being the slightly lower spec ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming. Included is support for two-way NVIDIA SLI and up to three-way AMD CrossFire multi-graphics cards configurations, 2.5 Gigabit networking, and a Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface.

The ASUS ROG Strix X570-E includes the gaming-focused Realtek RTL8125G 2.5 Gigabit NIC with a second port controlled by an Intel I211-AT Gigabit NIC. The board's wireless capabilities come from the new Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax adapter. The board boasts three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots which operate at x16, x8/x8, and x8/x8/x4, with the final four coming directly from the X570 chipset. The Strix themed chipset heatsink has two M.2 heatsinks emanating from the top and bottom side for the boards dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 and has a cooling fan integrated which is designed to keep the X570 chipset cool. The ROG Strix X570-E also has eight SATA ports and four DDR4 memory slots with support for up to 128 GB.

In terms of USB connectivity on the rear panel, there are three USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, and four USB 3.1 G1 Type-A ports. A SupremeFX S1220 HD audio codec powers the five color-coded 3.5 mm jacks, and an S/PDIF optical out, while a pair of video outputs consisting of an HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 output is featured. A handily located BIOS Flashback button and a single USB 3.1 G1 Type-A dedicated to this are clearly highlighted, and the ROG Strix X570-E also benefits from dual Ethernet ports with one being controlled by a Realtek RTL8125-CG 2.5 Gigabit NIC, while the other is driven by an Intel I1211-AT Gigabit NIC. There are also two antenna inputs for the Intel AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface which also adds BT 5 connectivity into the mix.

The ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming has an MSRP of $330 and represents its bridge between the mid-range and the higher end Crosshair VIII models. With Wi-Fi 6, 2.5 Gigabit + 1 Gigabit NICs and a SupremeFX S1220A HD audio codec and two-way NVIDIA SLI support, users looking for a high-quality ASUS X570 model may not have to look further than the Strix X570-F.

    Have I been living under a rock in the last 5 years, when did the prices of motherboards doubled? Reply

    Sincerely appreciate the multi-G table on the last page. Was thinking multi-gig would be more commonplace with this generation but guess I was wrong.

    So much useless stuff on these boards, would trade almost all of it and the Wifi in favor of just a 5G NIC. Not sure mobo manufacturers have realized just how many consumers/businesses have moved all those SATA drives out of the computer and into a NAS.

    Can you please post a picture from the back of this motherboard? I am thinking of buying this one and I want to watercool the chipset, so I need to know how the chipset radiator is fixed. If you could measure the distance between the mounting points it would be awesome. Reply

    Your prices apparently mean nothing. When you click no them they show much different results when you get to either neweggs or amazons sites. Reply

    Does the ASUS Prime X570-Pro have USB 3.1 type A or Type C headers to connect to a case's USB ports? Reply

    X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI, on the gigabyte site is says it has Wifi 5 and BT 4.2, but in the review it says it has Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax wireless interface and BT 5.0. Check Reply

    Can anybody summarise why you'd want an X570 board over one of the older boards ie X470? I know there's better overclocking support but, from all the reports I've read, these new Ryzens are near their max anyway. I know there's PCie4 support but does anyone own such a device? I know it has EEC memory support but why on earth do I need that? Why didn't this review tell us why we should want one of these new boards over the existing boards?

    I'm considering going all AMD with the 3700X 5700 though my current system (i5-3570K/1060 6GB/8GB RAM) is fairly snappy for what I do (mainly for 2D game development) but I'm just in the mood for a new PC. Smaller, quieter and more powerful would be nice and help justify the cost.

    The ASRock site lists the Steel Legend as having the ALC1220 chip, not the ALC1200 as noted in the AT table. Reply

    To confirm from my X570 Steel legend - ALC1220 here. HWINFO64 says Audio Codec Hardware ID: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_1220&SUBSYS_18492223&REV_1001 Reply

    I find it appalling that no x570 MB has more than 4 DIMM slots, and only dual channel at that. No support for more than 64 GB ram, even on the 'workstation' MB's. For around 700 US I expect better. It should also be considered 'standard equipment' by this time for the M.2's to offer raid support. Really, as a retired professional, I feel raped by these prices and lack of professional features. Reply
