ASUS ROG Strix X470-I Gaming Review

Introduction

The 2nd Generation of Ryzen CPUs has proven itself to be a very attractive proposition, smoothing out the few rough edges that there were on the original design, whilst also ensuring that the technological side of the chipset is bang up to date.

We've reviewed a few X470 motherboards since the launch and found the ASUS Strix Formula to be the best of the bunch, particularly when it comes to overclocking. However, we know that a large percentage of you enjoy the design freedom available from a more compact form factor. Whether it is because a smaller form factor allows you to squeeze a system into all manner of containers that didn't start life as a PC chassis, or simply that you just don't want a giant system dominating your room, the ITX size is supremely popular.

Once upon a time you had to make a lot of compromises in connectivity and performance terms to adopt the reduced footprint available from the ITX size, but those days are long behind us. Knowing that the ASUS ROG Strix X470-F proved such a high class performer we couldn't wait to see what the ITX version brought to the table.

Technical Specifications

Although an ITX motherboard is significantly smaller than its ATX cousins - a mere 17cm square rather than 30x24 - the Strix still squeezes on almost everything we could hope to find. Dual M.2 ports, AC WiFi, SupremeFX audio, AURA SYNC and USB 3.1 ports are all available.

That won't be for a while yet. The VI Extreme got announced at the end of July last year so a VII Extreme would probably be around the same time-frame. Although I maintain that having it ready for the CPU launch would have sold very well.


TTL, What kind of error did Gears give when you tried running it? Bit weird that it just flat out refused to run at allQuote

Got this board and tried two m.2 drives on the main front slot, and they didn't work. The slot doesn't even appear in the BIOS. Returned it and got an different board instead.Quote

IT would depend on your drive/s and whether you have it set to the right mode. There are two different types of M.2. One is SATA and will need to be set accordingly and the other is NVME which uses PCIE lanes. Usually when you use SATA it knocks out a couple of your SATA ports on the board. However, I would imagine PCIE/NVME needs the controller to be enabled.

Silly question but did you read the manual?Quote
