Excitement over the Asus X570 motherboard series is reaching fever pitch heights, and for good reason.
Since the original X570 motherboard series was released back in July 2019, its popularity has gone from strength to strength – not only among seasoned tech enthusiasts, but among first-time builders as well.
The chipset has stayed top-rated since its release within the world of mainstream motherboards, but technology development – particularly for PCs – is an industry that never stays still.
Even though they were only released two years ago, technology from networking to audio – and everything in between – has drastically advanced during that time. With that in mind, four exciting new motherboards are being added into the X570 series.
These new additions boast some pretty impressive new features when combined with the X570 chipset, such as:
- Passive chipset cooling
- More efficient power handling, as well as overclocking features
- More effective networking hardware
- Some models even have connectivity with Thunderbolt 4
The ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme was designed with both avid gamers and entertainers in mind. All of the latest features are packed into it, so that any custom-built PC can thrive under the most intensive overclocking conditions.
It has a 2-inch LiveDash OLED display on top of the M.2 heatsink that shows the user vital PC information, such as temperature and voltage levels, though this is customizable. It’s also got two Thunderbolt 4 ports, each boasting 40Gbps of bandwidth.
The ROG Strix X570-E Gaming WiFi II brings together the latest in tech and essential ROG DNA. It’s built as the successor to its legendary namesake, the ROG Strix X570-E Gaming WiFi I. It’s a mixture of smart software, high-end components, and passive chipset cooling. Notable improvements for this second-gen motherboard include: the addition of a WiFi 6E radio controlling the wireless network, and a focus on audio quality, thanks to its Two-way AI Noise Canceling tech.
The ProArt B550-Creator is ideal for channeling and seeing creative energy come to life. For those who are unfamiliar, the goal of the ProArt series is to provide maximum stability and performance to folk who depend on their computers to earn money. It’s got Dual Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, is prepared for the most hard-hitting Ryzen CPUs, and also has Two-way AI Noise Canceling technology.
The TUF Gaming X570-Pro WiFi II is designed with the most avid gamers in mind. This high-performing, long-lasting motherboard has a huge variety of essential features, and is also reasonably priced. Multiple heatsinks ensure that both the CPU and the chipset can run for as long as needed, without reducing performance. It’s also got Two-way AI Noise Canceling technology, ensuring top-quality audio both ways.
All the motherboards in this new series come with BIOS FlashBack™, so users can update the firmware using just a USB thumb drive and power supply. Each one also features ProCool auxiliary power headers, so the amount of energy flowing into the VRMs won’t make the system unstable – or worse, become a fire hazard.
