ASUS Shows Off New X570 Motherboards at Computex 2019

We’ve already taken a look at the ASRock and GIGABYTE X570 lineups.So, today we’re diving into what ASUS has on offer with their new ROG and TUF series of X570 motherboards. In total, ASUS introduced 11 different motherboards, however, we’ll be looking at just 8 of them in this report.

ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Formula

While a lot of the features are supposedly the same as the Hero VIII this one includes a metal backplate, and CrossChill water blocks by EK for the VRM as well as an 1.3″ OLED display on the I/O shield. It features things you’d hope for on a board of this caliber like BIOS flashback, power and reset buttons on the motherboard as well as other features useful for someone debugging or heavily overclocking. This board also competes with Gigabyte packing 16 PowIRstages with MicroFine Alloy chokes that are able to deliver 60 amps.

  • ATX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 8 SATA 3 Ports
  • 7 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 4 USB 3.1
  • WiFi 802.11AX
  • Aquantia AQC-111 5G LAN
  • 3 PCIe 4.0 (X16-8-4)
  • SupremeFX S1220

ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero

The latest version on ASUS’s previous flagship for X370 and X470 motherboards is back keeping most of the same features as the Formula, and the same 16 phase VRM. Though it does lack the higher end LAN and the waterblocks as well as the I/O shroud LCD screen.

  • ATX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 8 SATA 3 Ports
  • 7 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 4 USB 3.1
  • WiFi 802.11AX
  • Realtek RTL8125-CG 2.5G Ethernet
  • 3 PCIe 4.0 (X16-8-4)
  • SupremeFX S1220

ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Impact

Finally, we’ll have an Impact board on the AMD Ryzen platfom something I’ve been asking for since first gen. The board uses a mini-DTX form factor which is the same width as a mini-ITX motherboard though a bit longer, ASUS says that it will fit in any mini-ITX chassis that has room for a dual slot GPU since it extends the length of about 2 slots.
VRM enthusiast Buildzoid, recently did a video on it and concluded that it likely only features a 4+2 phase design, though it uses the highest end components available and should be solid for most uses.

  • mini-DTX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 4 SATA 3 Ports
  • 7 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • WiFi 802.11AX
  • Intel I211-AT Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 PCIe 4.0 (X16)
  • SupremeFX S1220

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming

The ROG Strix E Gaming is a step down, but not the typical Strix step down since it still seems to keep a lot of premium features and well build power delivery. This time it’s a step down to a Digi+ VRM in a 12+4 phase design though should compete well with the Crosshair models. The Strix models also keep the higher end onboard audio as well.

  • ATX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 8 SATA 3 Ports
  • 7 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 4 USB 3.1
  • WiFi 802.11AX
  • Realtek RTL8125-CG 2.5G Ethernet
  • 3 PCIe 4.0 (X16-8-4)
  • SupremeFX S1220

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming

The Strix X570-F Gaming is a slightly cut down version of the X570-E This time packing a 12+2 phase design that I believe is also Digi+ VRM, its nice to see even on the lower end of the spectrum reinforced PCI brackets, AIO and Pump headers for water cooling as well as M.2 heatsinks still make the cut. Though the lack of a debug code LCD is troubling for someone who tweaks as much as I do.

All of the ROG boards support BIOS flashback as well and features the same SupremeFX audio. The storage setup is the same, as I never liked when ASUS cut down boards to 4 SATA and USB ports on boards.

  • ATX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 8 SATA 3 Ports
  • 3 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 4 USB 2.0
  • 3 PCIe 4.0 (X16-8-4)
  • SupremeFX S1220

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-I Gaming

The ROG Strix X570-I Gaming is the little brother to the Crosshair Impact, its also a bit shorter and fits in the standard M-ITX form factor so should fit in just about any case.
Not much info on the VRM at this point though. This board also feaures a single VRM fan as opposed to the two on the Impact. It also lacks a post code LED screen though has LED indicators which is fine considering the size of the board, I mean where would they even fit it?

It still packs an AIO pump header too as well as RGB Strip headers. Overall this might be a great value ITX board depending on the pricing.

  • mini-ITX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 4 SATA 3 Ports3
  • 3 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 2 USB 2.0
  • WiFi 802.11AX
  • Intel I211-AT Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 PCIe 4.0 (X16)
  • SupremeFX S1220

TUF Gaming X570-PLUS (WiFi)

The TUF gaming has been rebranded from ultra high end ROG level components in the motherboards without the gaming features, to more recently budget focused boards. Perhaps ASUS will be changing this as this model will be using a 12+2 DrMOS power stage and uses TUF capacitors with what ASUS claims is 20% higher heat tolerance than standard capacitors.

The Gaming X570-Plus seems to also feature a slightly lower end Realtek onboard audio solution and lower spec 802.11AC WiFi. They also have a model without WiFi that should be a bit cheaper.

  • ATX
  • 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0
  • 8 SATA 3 Ports
  • 4 USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 4 USB 2.0
  • 2 PCIe 4.0 (X16-8)
  • 802.11AC
  • Realtek L8200A Gigabit Ethernet
  • SupremeFX S1220
