At Computex 2019, ASUS unveiled a number of ROG-branded motherboards aimed at gamers and enthusiasts for AMD's new X570 chipset. Most of them are ATX, but a small handful of models are designed for small form factor users and the ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming is one such model with a mini-ITX sized PCB. The main features include Wi-Fi 6 support, dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots, and dual video outputs on the rear panel.

The ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming is gaming-focused and represents its more mid-range Strix brand. On the smaller Mini-ITX form factor, the X570-I Gaming has plenty to shout about including two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with one located on the front of the board with an inclusive heatsink, and another located on the rear of the PCB. Also featured which is impressive for a mini-ITX model is eight SATA ports. Similar to the widely anticipated Mini-DTX form factor ROG Crosshair VIII Impact model, the ROG Strix X570-I shares the same networking configuration with an Intel I211-AT Gigabit LAN port on the rear, as well as an Intel AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface which also includes support for BT 5.

Aimed at the mid to high-end gamers, the ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming has a ROG SupremeFX S1220 HD audio codec with three USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, and four USB 3.1 G1 Type-A ports on the rear panel. Interestingly ASUS includes a DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 pairing of video outputs on the rear for use with the newly announced AMD Ryzen 3000 series APUs. There is a single full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot in addition to two memory slots with support for up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory.

No official pricing has been made available for the ROG Strix X570-I Gaming, but it's highly likely that the board will be available for purchase on 7/7 in line with AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors such as the Ryzen 9 3900X which has 12 cores, 24 threads and is set to cost just $499.

    Did I (and Asus) mis-count? I only see 4 SATA ports, not 8.

    Spec sheet only shows 4 sata ports
  • rocketscience315 - Friday, June 14, 2019 - link

    right, text of article says 8

    Yeah I'm wondering this myself as I personally need at least six for which ever x570 itx board I upgrade too from my current and jumped all over this until I read Asus' own spec sheet...

    Using the B350-I in my current rig and I have no complaints. Lots of features, perfectly stable. Glad to see the line continuing.

    hdmi 2.0 for $500+?
    No, thanks

    You are confusing the CPU price with the motherboard price. This series of boards typically runs $120-170 depending on the version 550 vs 570).

    A board like this you would typically pair with a dedicated graphics card, not an APU. You would care about HDMI version on the graphics card, not the motherboard. Also, honestly for a PC you should be using DisplayPort if possible anyway.

    This is definitely not a $150-170 motherboard - that stack of daughterboards as tall as the rear I/O alone can guarantee that (not to mention the reported $40 BOM cost of the chipset). The cheapest ATX X570 boards with leaked prices so far are about $160-170. This is a premium ITX board, and will cost far more than an entry ATX board. I'd be shocked if this was below $200, and not very surprised if it was above $300. Still, it looks like an excellent option for those of us not wanting to spend $600 or more on that DTX one. I'll likely be getting this, unless the price is completely bonkers.

    It's gone up slightly since I purchased mine (just glanced at Newegg), but not all that much. The X470 version, which is just as feature packed as this one, is currently $206 on Newegg (MSRP was $209.99). The B450 version is $165.

    I would expect the X570/B550 to run the same prices, they are drop in replacements and the features are at parity aside from the chipset.
