Detail is key Attention to detail separates merely good motherboards from the absolute best. Actual performance may vary depending on applications, usage, environment and other factors. We also offer guides and tips to help you get the most out of everything from individual components to complete systems to the hottest games. Our X570 series couples advanced engineering with meticulous design to create boards that form the centerpiece of any build. This creates new possibilities like the ability to monitor system accessories or peripherals, or have external devices control board features. The Crosshair and Strix models go one step further with ProCool power connectors featuring beefier pins and metal casings.
All the grades are available between loud and fast for maximum performance, and quiet and smooth for unobtrusive acoustics. From the looks of it, it does look like the number of modular ports are limited to four modules. Build with the highest grade components, these motherboards are capable of hitting the highest speeds, punching the boundaries of desktop computing. Reliability is assured thanks to a host of physical and electrical protection measures. The signature series were specifically designed by Asus from the ground up, in order to best take advantage of any components you may connect to them. For more ambitious liquid cooling, mid-range and high-end boards include a dedicated pump header primed to power a custom loop. Raw throughput is only part of the story, though.
The Crosshair and Strix series have multi-zone lighting and graphical styling in subdued monochrome tones to avoid clashing with colored lighting. Otherwise known as Wi-Fi 6, the new networking protocol pushes peak theoretical bandwidth to an incredible 2. Enterprise Application Co-ordinator, Web Developer, Hardware Enthusiast, Gadgets lover, Android Evangelist, Desktop and Consoles Gamer, Metal Music Guitarist, Audiophile, Networking Freak, Radio Controlled Toys rat, Ferrari Crazy and above all - a daddy in every kid's dream. And we were definitely not disappointed at all! Pushing further in that direction, our first Pro series motherboard for Ryzen processors provides a platform for serious workstations and creative professionals. The virtual mixer is particularly handy for streamers, as it allows routing multiple audio sources at once like game sound, music, and your own voice into a single virtual device for broadcasting or recording.
They have the Asus Prime X-299 Edition 30. Its reliable Intel Gigabit Ethernet controller is paired with a faster Aquantia 5G chip capable of much higher throughput on compatible networks. Networking is key to a happy team Desktop machines are often tethered to the outside world with a cable, but as wireless speeds climb higher and latency drops, more gamers and professionals are turning to fast Wi-Fi for their networking needs. Higher-end models have extra-large chipset heatsinks that improve cooling by also covering multiple M. Of course, we will update when we have it. Its distinctive look also appeals to enthusiasts who prefer more subdued styling for streamlined builds. The small touches we add ensure a smooth assembly and setup experience.
Auto impedance detection lets you use even high-impedance audiophile headphones and get crystal-clear, distortion-free output. Aura Sync offers the most complete ecosystem of compatible components along with intuitive software that puts the controls at your fingertips. Your teammates will appreciate the clarity of your communication, and woe to enemies who try to sneak up on you. You choose the temperature sensor that dictates the speed of each fan and whether it responds based on a preset profile or a custom curve you tweak yourself. Recently released, they support the latest 802. As a concept, the Prime Utopia gets some points in the innovation department.
As the description suggests, the feature would allow users to easily swap out ports for their own occasion. Instead, any and all future motherboards made by the brand could be styled around some elements of the motherboard. Higher-end Crosshair and Strix boards have additional Aquantia 5G or Realtek 2. Cooling is at the utmost importance on this motherboard as it is meant for overclockers. It ticks all the important checkboxes and wears a unique aesthetic with more universal appeal than gamer-oriented designs. This capability enables optimal cooling for any workload, from processor-heavy tasks to graphics-intensive gaming.
In total it looks like the motherboard would carry a total of four M. Latency is likewise improved—when using an 802. Asus has rewatched 30 years of making motherboards and with that, they have some amazing boards representing this up on display at Computex. Basically every motherboard made by Asus except for the ones in their named series Crosshair, Crossblade, Sabertooth, etc. The extra fan helps compensate for their smaller heatsinks and the limited airflow inside compact cases. No matter the motherboard, the audio circuit design uses Japanese capacitors, interference shielding, and discrete traces for the left and right channels.
Additionally, most high-end models in our X570 lineup come with a Node connector that allows bidirectional communication between the motherboard and compatible devices. The latest Wi-Fi technology fares much better than 802. Those who prefer subdued styling with carefully chosen features can turn to the Prime family, which still has enough punch for power users. At that kind of speed, cables are an option, not a necessity. Everything you need to know about each model is summarized in the table below or detailed in the pages that follow. Lighting up your battlestation and its accessories has never been easier.
Efficient airflow through the case and around components is key to keeping temperatures low and clock speeds high. This exclusive tech offers additional margin for memory tuning compared to the previous generation—even when tested using an identical 2 nd Gen Ryzen processor on the same board with and without this technology. . Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and accompanying DisplayPort inputs give content creators an easy way to connect chains of external storage and displays. It's even above the Pro series. A proof that the real fun does not actually ends, but rather begins when you become a daddy.
The audio chips and associated circuitry on our X570 motherboards have been scrupulously designed for crystal-clear sound processing and output. The basic difference is that the Pro series has had its wiring designed to compliment the chipsets on the board, while the Signature series is specifically designed to take maximum advantage of the chips on the board as well as any devices that can be connected. Pushing further in that direction, our first Pro workstation motherboard for Ryzen processors provides a platform for serious workstations and creative professionals. Specifications, content and product availability are all subject to change without notice and may differ from country to country. A pleasant burst of sound waves When talking about immersion, we tend to think of visuals first, but sound also plays an important role. Tweakers, overclockers, and enthusiasts can dig into the expert menus to tune every aspect of the motherboard to do their bidding.
