ASUS Teases Next-Gen ROG, ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming and PRIME Series Motherboards Ahead Of AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU Launch

Just two days ahead of the Computex, Asus ROG posted a teaser image of its upcoming motherboards, undoubtedly meant for the AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs that are expected to be announced on Monday. The collage of the upcoming X570 motherboards—ROG Strix, ROG Crosshair, Prime Series and TUF Gaming was seemingly spotted by TechPowerUp first. What got the netizens excited was that the company was prepping its motherboards, keeping in mind the unveiling of AMD X570 chipset.

The series of snapshots didn’t provide many details, but here’s a brief summary of what we could find.

ASUS Motherboards

The ROG Crosshair VII Maximus, from the ASUS Maximus series of motherboards seem to use a combination of the solid metal heatsink with hybrid heatsink cooler, a massive VRM layout, 8+4 pin connector configuration and fully covered I/O panel. It offers additional bells and whistles, and good overclocking features.

Another one, which seems to be the part of the ROG STRIX series feature an active fan cooling system hidden behind the mesh grill, along with a full cover heatsink over the PCH. It features dual metal-shielded PCIe 4.0 x16 slots, dual M.2 slots with heatsinks and 8 SATA III plots.

ASUS PRIME X570—currently, the apple of all gamers’ eyes, is based on the iconic monochrome theme with a large white colored PCH heatsink that vents out heat from the active fan cooler through the cutouts. Lastly, the TUF gaming motherboard offers somewhat similar features, but with a distinct black n’ silver color theme.

We’re anxiously waiting to figure out the rest at the Computex 2019 on Monday.

In another tweet, Asus showed off its next gaming device in a 4-second clip. The clip doesn’t provide much info about the device, except for the fact that it carries the official ROG logo and a power button on the side, making it look like a tablet.

They also blogged about the latest screen upgrades to their Spring collection laptop, that offer better features and performance. The non-gaming centric Asus product range will be introduced at the Asus Computex Press Event scheduled on 27th May.

Looks like things have been quite busy for this hardware manufacturing company. We’re anxiously waiting to get out sticky hands on their products. Aren’t you feeling the same?
