ASRock unveiled a number of its X570 models during Computex 2019: a lot of gaming-focused models, and some extremely high-end offerings, but the ATX sized ASRock X570 Pro4 and microATX X570M Pro4 looks set to offer users less bling and more functionality at a lower price point.

Starting with the design of the ASRock X570 Pro4 and X570M Pro4 models, both models use the same silver and black theme throughout, with shining silver heatsinks, and a solid looking aluminium rear panel cover which doubles up as the power delivery heatsink. Both the ATX and microATX models use the same 10-phase power delivery, with both opting to use a single 8-pin 12 V EPS CPU power input. Both have dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with one M.2 heatsink, with eight SATA ports, and both also use an Intel Gigabit LAN port, and a Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec.

The primary difference aside from the form factor is the ASRock X570 Pro4 naturally has more PCB space for extra PCIe connectivity. This includes two PCIe 4.0 x1 slots on the X570 Pro4 compared to the single PCIe 4.0 x1 on the X570M Pro4, but surprisingly, both feature two full-length PCIe 4.0 x4 slots and an M.2 Key E for users to add their own Wi-Fi/BT module. Both include a DisplayPort and HDMI video output on the rear panel, and four memory slots capable of supporting up to DDR4-4400.

Both the ASRock X570 Pro4 and X570M Pro4 models are set to be launched alongside the Ryzen 3000 series processors on 7/7, but as of yet, no information on pricing is available.

    Oh, this is great!!! Together with the ASUS Pro WS X570-Ace, having the option of non-childish motherboards means the manufacturers are listening to the grumpy grown-ups target too. I was very worried about the bling trend as the only option on the enthusiast level components.

    This ASRock looks great, might reconsider skipping the X570 due to the fan thanks to these two models.

    Fans on chipsets are a fail.

    No, not really. Fans on chipsets indicate PCI-E 4.0 has higher power requirements than 3.0, and this fan will likely only spin at higher RPM if you saturate, for example, two Gen4 4X M.2 SSDs at the same time. I will take a Fan on the chipset for the massive I/O capability X570 offers any day.

    When we bought our Ryzen 1800X system, we used the Asrock A320M Pro4, because we don't need the additional I/O capabilities of the B350 or X370 chipsets, we were not interested in overclocking, and because Asrock (along with Asus) implements ECC functionality. But there are people who claim that boards with higher-end chipsets also have better VRMs. And indeed that board died last weekend, possibly due to some VRM failure (it was completely dead).

    So I guess buying an X570 board for a 3900X makes sense even if the I/O capabilities of the A320 (or its successor) would be sufficient. The X570M Pro4 therefore looks very interesting, and I eagerly await a review.

    A320 boards have the weakest VRM for sure. Honestly don't cheap out on a board with the highest end Ryzen 3900X. Also A320 will not support Ryzen 3000, AMD confirmed that already. For me the price difference between A320 and B350 was like £10-20, and I figured I would just buy the B350 because I *can* overclock it, if I ever wanted to run some tests or get a bit more performance. But then, Ryzen 2000 boost upgrade really removed any requirement for overclocking "X" Series CPUs, to get more performance :D. I love the 2700X for that. (But Precision Boost Overdrive is even better IMO).

    I really don't think this is a real 8-phase on the Vcore side. Knowing Motherboard companies, and marketing and all that. I will reserve judgement until someone rips that Heatsink off and checks the components. Until then, I assume this is a 4-phase with two inductors per phase in parallel (not even a doubled). But even that is still perfectly fine for the currently announced Ryzen 3000 CPUs. When I did mess with manual overclocking a bit, I managed to get 4.25 GHz on all cores on my 2700 with 1.42V on a 4-phase (MSI B450M Mortar), and it was drawing nearly 200 Watts according to HWINFO64.
