ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus & X570-Plus WIFI

The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus and TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi motherboards both contain the same core componentry with a 12+2 phase power delivery, actively cooled X570 chipset heatsink, a Realtek S1200A HD audio codec, and both feature the new Realtek L8200A Gigabit LAN which is exclusive to ASUS at present. The only difference between the two models is that the TUF Gaming X570-Plus WIFI includes an Intel AC 9260 802.11ac wireless interface with BT 5.0 support included.

On the design, the aesthetic is reminiscent of previous TUF Gaming branded models with a grey and black patterned printing on the PCB, with grey industrial looking heatsinks. There are four memory slots with support for ECC and non-ECC DDR4 memory with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB. The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus pairing also includes two full-length PCIe 4.0 slots which run at x16 and x16/x4. 

Included on the rear panel is an HDMI 1.4b, and DisplayPort video output, with two USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, and one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C port; also featured are four USB 3.1 G1 Type-A ports. A new addition to Realtek's NIC line up and exclusive to ASUS is an L8200A Gigabit NIC, with the WIFI model including an Intel AC 9260 802.11ac wireless interface. The five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output are controlled by a Realtek ALC1200A HD audio codec, and finishing off the rear panel is a PS/2 combo port for legacy keyboard and mice.

Both the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus and TUF Gaming X570-Plus WIFI models represent its gaming-inspired entry level; ASUS rebranded the TUF series from durable and robust models, to more accessible models with a more modest outlay when compared to the Strix series. The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus has an MSRP of $170, while the WIFI enabled version is slightly more expensive with an MSRP of $185.

    I also owned a Z77 Extreme 4 at one time, and the X570 version is probably the closest to perfect that I've seen offered so far. If only it had a couple of extra USB ports on the back panel, it'd be a shoe-in. Reply

    Hoping for price cuts on Intel cpus because no matter how good Ryzen is, these boards are way too expensive. Reply

    Then get X470 or B450 boards. Or even X370 or B350 boards, you are in no way forced to use these latest mobos. Reply

    Good advice, and you get lower system power consumption as a bonus. The main reason to go with the more expensive x570 boards is PCIE 4.0, and you're not going to get that if you switch to Intel. Reply

    Asrock has the x570 pro 4 listed on their web site with an MSRP of $154.00 I've used their Pro X boards in a number of builds and always had good results with them. They don't seem to be available at retail yet (at least anywhere I've seen) . On the other hand, I'm not one of those to go out and buy any product on the first day. Street prices on both motherboards and CPU's are likely to drop quickly and...even if I go out and buy a new CPU, I don't have anything else that could take advantage of the x570 chipset for the time being, so my x470 is probably good to go for quite some time to come anyway.

    Ryzen 3000 series CPU prices are going to be over MSRP for at least 3 months. Reply

    I don't know where you live, but here in the USA, the CPUs are all at the official prices, unless you go to a third party seller who is trying to scam money out of people. Note that many online stores show products from third parties in addition to what they sell themselves, so when you see CPU prices above MSRP, those are the third party scammers.

    Newegg is getting daily deliveries by the look of it, and I expect the other large online sources are as well. The sales volumes are high on these chips, and some people just take advantage of it and charge more money.

    On Amazon.es and PCComponentes.com the EXACT SAME price, set up by bots:
    AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 548,90€
    AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 361,80 €

    The only reason to buy x570 is for PCIe 4.0. If you don't need it, get a B450 board at 75$ Will work for every Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

    I am even thinking about using my X370 MSI Gaming Pro Carbon for my 3950x.

    3950x likely won't work due power requirements. All the X570 boards preparing for it are implementing beefier power supplies/extra phases for VRM specifically to support it and any potential overclocking. It may have a higher platform power limit for PBO too Reply
