AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation CPUs will soon be upon us, offering users higher clock speeds, improved boost technology and several other design tweaks. 

Leaks for AMD's incoming CPUs and X470 series motherboard have already been widespread, with pricing for AMD's upcoming CPUs leaking on Amazon UK earlier this week. 

Videocardz has now leaked images of ASUS' upcoming Strix X470-I Gaming motherboard, which fits into the Mini ITX form factor and offers several design changes alongside several feature improvements.   

For starters, ASUS has opted for a darker colour scheme with a lot of gamer lingo printed on the motherboard's M.2 heatsink, where and RGB ROG logo is also present. We can also see that ASUS has added a single HDMI port to their AM4 Strix ITX design, allowing Ryzen CPUs to make use of integrated graphics whenever they are present. ASUS' X370-I and B350-I motherboards both lacked display outputs, making Ryzen CPUs with integrated graphics pointless on the platform.   

Other design changes include a larger VRM heatsink which offers more surface area for heat dissipation, as well as several visual changes to component layout around the board's power circuitry, which could improve overclockability when compared to ASUS' previous ITX AM4 motherboards. Aside from that, the hardware layout of the X470-I Strix Gaming looks almost identical to its last-generation counterpart.

I don't like this random scribbling Asus have seen fit to put over all of their new products.

Talk about having the almost perfect visual appeal and then wrecking it.Quote

why X470...?

i have not looked at the specs to be honest but is this chipset not a bit of a waste on an ITX mainboard?

what does it offer that could not be achieved with a B450?

PCI lanes should not be a problem with a board that has just one PCI16 slot and 2 SATA ports.Quote
