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.

    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

    Such a dumb argument, you do realize than intel had massive generations jumps from core 2 duo, to intel core 1st gen, then second gen. While amds overpriced phenoms flopped. All these companies are the same, lack of competition means lack of advancement Reply
