La placa base ASUS ROG Strix X570-I comença a vendre



ASUS started selling its premium Mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD X570 chipset, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix X570-I Gaming. The board was announced as part of ASUS' X570 motherboard lineup back in July, but is only now reaching selves, with an MSRP of USD $220. The board features an elaborate thermal solution that cools the CPU VRM, the fiesty X570 chipset, and an M.2-2280 SSD over a network of interconnected heatsinks that are ventilated by two 30 mm fans. Despite crippling space constraints, ASUS managed to cram in a 10-phase VRM to power the socket AM4 CPU, which is wired to two DDR4 DIMM slots, an M.2-2280 slot, and the board's sole expansion slot, a PCI-Express 4.0 x16.

La connectivitat d’emmagatzematge al joc de ASUS ROG Strix X570-I inclou no una, sinó dues ranures M.2-2280, una cablejada a la presa AM4 i l’altra del chipset X570. Les dues ranures M.2 s’apilen una sobre l’altra, amb un metàl·lic de calor entre elles, tirant calor de la unitat de sota fins a la xarxa de dissipament de placa. Quatre ports SATA de 6 Gbps converteixen la resta de connectivitat d’emmagatzematge. La xarxa inclou WiFi 6 (802.11ax) i Bluetooth 5.0 des d’una targeta Intel ‘Cyclone Peak’ AX200; i Ethernet de 1 GbE cablejat per un xip Intel i211-AT. La solució d'àudio integrada inclou un Realtek ALC1200A CODEC amb OPAMP dual.
