There are eight USB ports that can transmit 10Gbps data to the I/O panel. With all the USB 3.x ports on the X570 platform offering this bandwidth, a better question is why Asus’s rivals (specifically, the MSI MEG X570A Ace, Asus Rog Strix X570-E Black Friday Deals 2021 Gigabyte X570Aorus Master, and ASRock X570 Taichi), are replacing some with 5Gbps ports. Who would trade one of the three M.2 slots available to a competitor for four SATA ports. The ROG Strix Gaming X570-E Gaming ($330/PS326) is the right choice for you. These features are now firmly established. The only question left is why Asus calls this board “gaming” instead of “pro”.
We’ve tested several X570 boards, including some models refreshed for AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 CPUs but only a handful of models stand out enough to rank among our Best Motherboads list.
Visit ourBasicAndBuying GuideThis will help you narrow down your options when buying a motherboard. The designers had to decide whether to use the remaining four lanes for SATA or USB3 or an additional PCIe. This is where lane sharing, which allows one interface to be disabled and another to be enabled, begins. Asus chose a different path with its ROG Strix X570E Gaming: It only has two M.2 slots. Strix X570 E Gaming also features eight SATA port ports. Some competitors have reduced those to four, so that four can be used for PCIe (typically a 3rd M.2 slot).

Just when you thought you would get at least four lanes to third x16-length, PCIe slot you find out that it switches to x2 mode every time the second x1 slot has been used. The second slot is not used by most people due to its location. However, this notion leads us to question why it’s included on a gaming-focused motherboard. Asus’s efforts are more evident on the I/O panel where there are eight USB3 Gen2 ports. Gen1 ports would not make sense from a chipset standpoint, as the platform’s USB3 port are all Gen2 compliant. However, many of Asus’ rivals have decided to limit their I/O.
Although we are happy that Asus has chosen to take the high road, we would have preferred to see a pair USB 2.0 ports for a keyboard or mouse. Connecting them to USB3 is a waste. USB support is the main difference here. Asus uses the same Realtek 2.25Gbps/Intel Gigabit Ethernet/802.11ax controller combination as similar-priced boards by MSI and Gigabyte. However, there are small differences like the inclusion of DisplayPort, HDMI, and the exclusion a CLR_CMOS but on this Asus board. There are four additional SATA ports and one fewer M.2 slot than the two competitors.The Strix X570 E Gaming’s name is probably due to the association of gaming and overclocking. Above, sixteen chokes are tied to a 50A MOSFET and arranged in a 12+4 configuration. This arrangement allows users to push 600A of current into the CPU core.

There are three fan headers (4-pin) at the top and three at the bottom. One is forward of the I/O panel’s audio jacks. This will allow those who overclock to keep things cool. We should also mention the two RGB headers and two ARGB headers at the top and bottom, which could be used for fan lighting control (in addition, of course, to RGB strips).The Strix X570E Gaming’s lower halves reveal that the PCH cover has been mesh-sealed with two screws. To access the forward screws for the M.2-drive heatspreaders, the cover must be taken off. Anyone who doesn’t need those heat spreaders can ease M.2 access by leaving them off, which then makes removing the PCH fan cover unnecessary.
Front-panel audio, Asus Node, thermistor, two USB 2.0 and one USB3 Gen1 dual-port, three fan, RGB ARGB, Intel-style front-panel button/switch, and a beep-code speaker header line the Strix X570-E Gaming’s bottom edge, while the single-port USB3 Gen2 front-panel header sits halfway up its front edge. A two-digit status code display is also found at the bottom edge. Strix X570E Gaming comes with a multilingual user manual, driver, application disc, four SATA cables and a thermistor led. There are also RGB and ARGB extensions cables. A thank-you card, Cablemod coupon and ROG sticker sheet are included.
There are many types of motherboards. If you want to get the most out of your AMD Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series CPUs, then you will need to consider the AMD X570 motherboards. ASUS motherboards are consistently ranked among the best, and the ROG Strix X570 E Gaming motherboard is as good as it gets before you get into enthusiast territory (and the pricing).
This motherboard uses AMD’s X570 chipset and has two PCIe.4.0×4-capable M.2 slot, eight USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and eight rear USB 3.0 Gen 2 ports. ASUS is also leading the charge by including a Realtek RTL8125 controller LAN, which Asus Rog Strix X570-E Black Friday Deals 2021 unlocks speeds up to 2.5Gbps if you don’t want to use the Wi-Fi 6AX200 from Intel. This “gaming” motherboard is great for AMD PC builds. But is it worth the $300 price tag?
