ASUS ROG Strix B560-F Gaming WIFI

The second in ASUS's Republic of Gamers B560 series is the ROG Strix B560-F Gaming WIFI which is one offive (at the time of writing) available Alphabet Strix models. The ASUS ROG Strix B560-F Gaming WIFI offers a mixture of premium features commonly found on its Z590 models but keeping in line with the overall premise of the value element of B560. Its design consists of a typical Strix model, with primarily black heatsinks with Strix graffiti-inspired text. There is also an illuminated RGB ROG logo integrated within the rear panel cover.

Included in the feature set are two full-length PCIe slots including one PCIe 4.0 x16 (top) and one PCIe 3.0 x4 (bottom), with two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. Storage on the F model consists of three PCIe M.2 slots with one PCIe 4.0 x4 and two with support for PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA drives. Along the right-hand side are six SATA ports arranged in a line with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. At the time of writing, ASUS hasn't published its QVL memory list, so support is listed as DDR4-3200 in line with Rocket Lake, but we do know that the four available slots will accommodate up to 128 GB of memory.

On the rear panel is plenty of connectivity including one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, two USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, three USB 2.0 ports, as well as one of ASUS's latest Type-C audio ports. For users of integrated graphics, ASUS includes one HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort 1.4 video output, as well as five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output driven by a ROG Supreme FX S1220A HD audio codec. On the networking side of things, there's an Intel pairing including an I225-V 2.5 GbE controller and an AX200 Wi-Fi 6 CNVi model. Finishing off the rear panel is a BIOS Flashback button.

    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.

    @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 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.

    Everything you said is provably false

    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.

    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
  • jabber - Wednesday, March 31, 2021 - link

    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.
  • cxtalxg - Wednesday, May 5, 2021 - link

    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
