AMD X570 Chipset

The AMD X570 chipset is designed around 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 3000-series processors. Along with multiple improvements, its most noteworthy one is the addition of PCIe 4.0. PCIe 4.0 has roughly double the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, which is beneficial for graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more.

ROG Power Solution

  • 8-Pin ProCool II Power Connectors - Sturdy power connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection.
  • PowIRstage MOSFETs - The VRM consists of 16 IR3555 PowIRstages, each rated to handle 60 amps.
  • MicroFine Alloy Chokes - Accompanies PowIRstage and each choke is rated to handle 45 amps.
  • 10K Japanese-Made Black Metallic Capacitors - Solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high temperatures.

Optimem III

An optimized memory trace layout that improves signal integrity and mitigates noise for higher frequencies with lower latency and voltages.

Cooler by Design

Equipped with multiple temperature sensors as well as 4-pin PWM/DC fan headers, this motherboard has plenty of cooling potential to keep your system in check. It also has dedicated pump heads should you opt for water cooling.

Active Chipset Heatsink

The chipset on this motherboard is outfitted with an active cooling solution with a custom Delta SuperFlo fan. Combined with an air duct and a finned heatsink, it helps to lower chipset temperatures and prevent throttling.

VRM & M.2 Heatsinks

A hefty VRM and dual M.2 heatsink helps to further dissipate heat from components for more even temperatures and efficient cooling across the board.

Accurate Voltage Monitoring

This motherboard features a differential sensing circuit that tracks voltage more accurately, so users can overclock and tune their systems efficiently.

5-Way Optimization

  • TPU Insight - The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) offers automated system tuning for voltages and overclocking, complete with system stat monitoring.
  • EPU Guidance - The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) optimizes power consumption to maximize savings.
  • Fan Xpert 4 - Manually or automatically control the speed of your fans to find a balance of cooling performance and noise.
  • Digi+ Power Control - Offers real-time control over voltage droops, switching frequency, and power efficiency settings.
  • Turbo App - Make use of AMD processor's per-core tuning to assign apps to specific cores to prioritize computing power.

Wi-Fi 6 & Bluetooth 5.0

The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard provides higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage, and improved battery life for connected devices. Bluetooth 5.0 also provides users with cable-free device connectivity.

Ethernet

Intel I211-AT Ethernet offers users increased TCP and UDP throughput with minimal CPU overhead. Moreover, users can also take advantage of the Realtek RTL8125-CG 2.5GbE LAN jack for serious speeds.

Audio

ROG SupremeFX audio technology incorporates a variety of hardware choices to provide users with high-quality audio. These include the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS ES9023P DAC, a Texas Instruments RX4580 op amp, Nichicon capacitors, gold-plated audio jacks, and switching MOSFETs.

Storage

Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots up to 22110 offer users plenty of storage space and performance, thanks to NVMe and RAID support.

ASUS Node

The ASUS Node connector enables users to install additional components such as the included ASUS Fan Extension Card II and more.

GameFirst V

GameFirst V is network optimization software that lets users prioritize their gaming traffic for faster, lag-free gaming.

Sonic Studio III

Sonic Studio III is an audio suite that offers a variety of sound enhancements including a range of EQ options, one-click presets, and virtual surround sound.

ASUS Aura Sync

This motherboard is equipped with RGB LED lighting and multiple RGB headers for additional RGB products. ASUS Aura Sync offers users a wide selection of colors and lighting effects, so users can connect and sync compatible devices for a unified theme.

Armoury Crate

ASUS Armoury Crate is a suite of management software that lets users control their supported ROG products. It offers access to Aura Sync, device configuration, drivers and manual downloads, gaming highlights, and account management.
