ASUS
Intel’s Basin Falls platform (X299) is just about to be announced. Although Computex 2017 has not yet started, images of an ASUS STRIX X299-E Gaming motherboard have leaked online. This model is aimed at the upper mid-range market and therefore come with quite a bunch of features.

Based on ATX form factor

ASUS
The ASUS ROG B350-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps ASUS’ AM4 lineup. So far there are only four B350 motherboards from ASUS that all belong to the Prime series. Compared to the ROG X370-F Strix Gaming, the new B350-F Strix Gaming should be cheaper yet still pack quite a few features.

Thanks to microcode update

ASUS
ASUS has released a new beta BIOS which includes an AGESA Microcode update improving memory compatibility on their Crosshair VI Hero. According to ASUS, the updated microcode should enhance memory compatibility in combination with high clocking memory, adding support for 3466MHz, 3600MHz, 3733MHz, 3866MHz and 4000MHz memory multipliers without the need of BCLK overclocking.

A slight upgrade for the high-end ASUS AM4 model

Ready for both Ryzen CPUs and APUs

The Prime B350M-E from ASUS is a mid-range motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to the Prime B350-Plus, which ASUS unveiled a few weeks ago, the new model is a cheaper, sub-80 euro board, that still packs a few goodies. Like the name suggests, this new model is based on a micro-ATX form factor.

A new mini-ITX model

ASUS
Looking at the Z270 and H270 line-up from ASUS quite a few things have changed compared to the previous generation and one of those things is the “ROG STRIX” series. There is now a complete lineup of STRIX Gaming motherboards with the ROG STRIX H270I Gaming being the company’s mini-ITX offer, featuring RGB lighting. This motherboard is quite similar to the ROG STRIX Z270I we’ve already reviewed a few months ago.

Water cooling and air cooling at same time

ASUS has unveiled their ROG GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon graphics card, which is - apparently - based on the new flagship chip from NVIDIA. Like the previous model it features a water cooling block as well as a heatsink with a dense aluminum fin stack and several heatpipes.

With new BIOS update

ASUS
Intel Optane Memory devices are now compatible with ASUS 200-series motherboards. In the beginning we will only see 16GB or 32GB M.2 caching devices. This new memory type can be used to speed up both SSDs and HDDs. Although it will be only compatible with desktop systems, we might soon find such caching devices in notebooks and mid-range PCs as well.

Still no word on the GTX 1070

ASUS
During the last GDC, NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and also the upcoming release of faster GTX 1060 and 1080 graphics cards. According to them, companies like MSI, Gigabyte or ASUS can create variations of the GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 with faster memory than the reference designs.

Sub 250 dollars

On ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard

ASUS
AMD has posted a picture on Twitter of a Ryzen 7 1700 microprocessor running with 16GB of G.Skill 3400MHz DDR4 memory. In past days we have come across many rumors about Ryzen supporting high-speed DDR4 memory. This screenshot finally seems to prove that the IMC of the new AMD chips can perfom. On another note it’s interesting to see that a Ryzen 7 1700 has been used, which apparently is a non-”X” model.

Both based on B350 chipset

ASUS
A few days ago ASUS has unveiled two new AMD AM4 300-series motherboards. As we already mentioned a few times, the X370 chipset is followed by the B350 and then the A320. While the first addresses the mid-range market the latter targets the entry-level segment. As a result of that the B350 chipset still allows for overclocking while the A320 doesn’t.
