ASUS' ROG X470-F Strix motherboard leaks online

ASUS' upcoming ROG Strix X470-F Strix motherboard has been pictured, showing up on Videocardz. The board itself matches ASUS' recently revealed X470 motherboard layouts, which showcase ASUS' Prime X470-Pro, TUF X470-Plus Gaming and Strix X470-F Gaming.

In the picture below we can see an M.2 slot which is just below the CPU socket, confirming ASUS' plans to ship X470 motherboards with more than one M.2 slot, suggesting that AMD's X470 chipset can handle two M.2 SSDs, which is an upgrade over X370.  At this time it has not been confirmed whether or not both of these slots will be able to utilise PCIe 3.0 x4 speeds.

Looking at the motherboard's heatsinks, we can also see that ASUS has added some additional slats to the top of the motherboard's metallic VRM heatsink, providing more surface area for more optimal VRM cooling as well as a new shroud design which features what appears have an RGB illuminated ROG eye. 

The Hybrid lettering and the Chinese characters ?? suggest that this board is intended for the Chinese market, the letters translate to the term "Player", which fits in nicely with ASUS' ROG Strix Gaming Brand.

The board appears to be using an 8+2 phase VRM that 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.
