ASUS will drop two new motherboards, ROG Strix X370-I and Strix B350-I in Mini-ITX form factors for AM4 sockets. With both the boards prepared for AMD’s Ryzen, A-series and Athlon processors, they seem to be quite identical. These new boards features liquid cooling, M.2 storage, Aura-sync RGB and SupremeFX 8-channel audio codec. ASUS includes one click overclocking for great convenience with it’s 5-way optimization technology that configures cooling on its own.
ROG Strix X370-I features AMD X370 chipset and Strix B350-I features AMD B350 chipset otherwise, distinguishing both boards is nearly impossible. The motherboards feature 2 DIMM slots that supports 32GB of DDR4-3600MHz memory and six-phase VRM design that ensures smooth power delivery.
Other features in the boards includes Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual band frequency 2.4/5GHz support, MU-MIMO support, Bluetooth V4.2 and Intel Gigabit Ethernet networking. The X370-I and B350-I packs ample ports for your needs that include 4 USB 3.1 Gen1(back panel), 2 USB 3.1 Gen2 TYPE-A (back panel), 2 USB 3.1 Gen1(mid-board), 2 USB 2.0 port(s) (mid-board), 4 SATA 6GB/s port(s) and 3 LED illuminated audio jacks.
The motherboards will be available in the end of this month and there’s not any pricing stated by ASUS for any of these boards.
