ASUS ROG Strix B560-I Gaming WIFI
ASUS also plans to release a mini-ITX form factor model based on its Strix series. The ASUS ROG Strix B560-I Gaming WIFI has all the hallmarks of a typical ROG mini-ITX board, with subtle, but Strix-inspired styling. The design follows an all-black PCB, with black heatsinks and rear panel cover, with a combinedM.2/chipset heatsink that includesGraffiti style lettering.
Along the bottom is one full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with two M.2 slots including one PCIe 4.0 x4 and one PCIe 3.0 x4 with support for SATA drives. In the bottom right-hand corner is four straight-angled SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. As the ROG Strix B560-I Gaming WIFI is mini-ITX, this means there are just two memory slots, although ASUS includes support for DDR4-5333 memory with capacities of up to 64 GB.
The rear panel includes a single USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, five USB 2.0 Type-A, and one USB 2.0 Type-A audio port. ASUS includes a ROG SupremeFX S1220A HD audio codec, with an assisting Savitech SV3H712 amplifier which powers five 3.5 mm audio jacks. For users planning on leveraging Intel's UHD integrated graphics, there's one HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort 1.4 video output pairing, while networking includes a Realtek-based 2.5 GbE controller and Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 CNVi.
