ASUS ROG Strix B560-G Gaming WIFI

For users looking for a premium-looking micro-ATX board, the ASUS ROG Strix B560-G Gaming WIFI is a fabled Gene'esq board in all but name; perhaps the G naming stands for Gene. Although not as high-end as Gene modes in the past, the Strix series offers gamers a more mid-ranged gaming experience, with consisting styling throughout. The design consists of a mainly black color scheme, with black and grey patterning on the PCB, and modern graffiti-styled ASUS designs on the rear panel cover and chipset heatsink.

Looking at the board's specifications, ASUS includes two full-length PCIe slots including one PCIe 4.0 x16 and one PCIe 3.0 x4 slot, with two additional PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. For storage, there are two M.2 slots including one PCIe 4.0 x4 and one PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA, with six SATA ports that feature support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. In the top-right hand corner are four memory slots, with support for up to DDR4-5000 and capacity for up to 128 GB of memory. ASUS is advertising the B560-G Gaming WIFI to include a 10-phase power delivery featuring teamed power stages, with one 8-pin 12 V ATX CPU power input.

ASUS includes a single USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C port on the rear panel, as well as oneType-C port designed for audio devices, one USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and six USB 2.0 ports. There are two video outputs including an HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4, with one Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE port and an Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 CNVi offering BT 5.1 connectivity. Finishing off the rear panel is a small BIOS flashback button, and five 3.5 mm audio jacks, and S/PDIF optical output controlled by a SupremeFX S1220A HD audio codec.

    With pricing like that for both motherboards and cpus, and good availability Intel is becoming a great value option.
    Personally I don't see why I'd choose AMD cpu in 200-350USD bracket with local prices.

    "Intel great value option" LOL. How the mighty have fallen. Reply

    @ballsystemlord: Or in other words how AMD starts price gouging and becoming more anti-consumer. How the "value brand" is now too expensive for the average customers.

    (not disagreeing with you. Just showing the other side of the reality.)

    If it wasn't for AMD you might be in one of these Intel "value" motherboards, only you'd be paying 2x-3x as much for it....like you were about 4 years ago, remember? And there's no question that if it wasn't for AMD you'd be paying *huge sums* for ~14nm++++++++++++++++++++ CPUs Intel is selling now for bargain-basement prices *because* of AMD. Don't you realize that if not for AMD you'd be paying more, though the nose, for inferior components? Have you even checked to see that Z590 motherboards are ~$1k and up and can't even provide system-wide PCIe4 bus coverage? Heck, that's more expensive than the most expensive x570 motherboards. Welcome to the real side of reality....;) Without AMD there would be no competition in these markets at all and Intel would be selling the same--likely worse garbage--at stratospheric prices. Reply

    you sure about that ? i guess you forgot the wonderful <10% gen on gen performance increases we were getting before Zen was released, and the ever increasing prices for that performance ? or the fact that mainstream was stuck on quad core cpus and you NEEDED to get intel HEDT cpus to get anything more then 4 cores ?

    Tbf what AMD did to competition back then doesn't mean it's an excuse for them to copy Intel's playbook in the past. They can maintain their value position, but even the lowest Ryzen 5000 SKU is a bit overpriced for consumers here in the Philippines. Maybe Intel needs to thank AMD for being in such a position that is desired for consumers. Reply

    Even the 3000 series? I've seen the 3000 series for pretty good prices around the world, the 5000 is supply constrained and demand outstrips supply so there is no reason to lower the price....That's how markets work Reply

    I remember not that long ago an AMD 'budget board' would have HDMI/eSATA/Toslink/6 USB ports (some USB3) and decent audio chip etc. and the Intel budget board would give you just VGA/PS2/ serial, a couple of USB2 and a parallel port instead. Terrible. Reply

    AMD's motherboards are cheaper and include OC features at lower prices. Nothing has changed with Intel sadly. If you look at a bundle of motherboard+CPU AMD is still cheaper. Reply
