The packaging for ASUS' upcoming ROG Strix X470-F motherboard has leaked online, confirming that new X470 motherboard will offer support for two M.2 slots and the overall aesthetics of ASUS' mid-range 400-series AM4 motherboard. 

Looking at the motherboard's heatsinks (image from Videocardz), we can also see that ASUS has added some additional slats to the top of the motherboard's metallic VRM heatsink. This change provides the heatsink with more surface area, creating more optimal VRM cooling. We can also see a new I/O shroud design which features what appears to be an RGB illuminated ROG eye. 

When compared to their X370 counterparts, AMD 400-series motherboards are expected to offer optimised VRM designs and improved component layouts, delivering a better overclocking experience for consumers, especially on the memory front. At this time it is unknown whether or not the two M.2 slots on this motherboard will run at full PCIe 3.0 x4 speeds, which would bring AMD's X470 in-line with Intel's  Z270/Z370 chipsets.

This motherboard appears to be using an 8+2 phase VRM design which is similar to the Strix X370-F Gaming, though looking at the two boards it is clear that ASUS has done a lot of redesigning moving into AMD's next generation Ryzen lineup. AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation processors and 400-series motherboards are expected to release on April 19th.
