ASUS ProArt X570-CREATOR WIFI – Tom’s Hardware

Powering the CPU on the Asus ProArt X570-Creator WIFI is a 14+2 VRM, capable of driving AMD’s flagship Ryzen 9 5950X at stock speeds and while overclocked. The X570 version we’re testing today includes three M.2 sockets and six SATA ports, which should be enough for most content creators, without throwing in an add-in-card. Along with the increased storage options and fast Wi-Fi, the board includes a 10 GbE port, flagship-class audio (albeit last-generation) and two Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports to round out primary connectivity. Overall, it’s a well-appointed motherboard for content creators looking for an X570 workhorse.

ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-I GAMING WIFI – Stacked Design?

By far the most interesting thing about this leak is the design of the daughterboards installed right on top of the space usually reserved for an M.2 slot. It is hard to tell from this angle but this might be ASUS’ solution to attaching multiple M.2 slots as well as extension ports and audio chipset to such a tiny design.

ASUS Z690 motherboard series is set to launch around November 4th, when Intel officially lifts the sale embargo. However according to previous reports they might go on sale a week sooner (preorders). The board has recently appeared in a retailer leak (here and here) with a price tag of 360 to 451 EUR (without VAT).

ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME – Tom’s Hardware

The Extreme performed well in our testing, excelling in PC Mark 10 tests, while showing average to above-average results in most other tests. Surprisingly, gaming results were slightly lower than average, but not enough to be concerned with. Our overclocking adventures with the Ryzen 9 5950X were met without issue–just set it and forget it. Power use was high during testing, but that’s not surprising considering the kitchen-sink-level features on the board.

ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME – TweakTown

At the top, this board has nearly every connectivity option possible, including Thunderbolt 4 and USB 3.2 Gen2x2. Additionally, we have 10Gbe, Wi-Fi 6e, and 2.5Gbe for a complete network stack, and storage capability is out of this world with five m.2 slots and 6 SATA ports.

EFI and software are about as complete as they come; most of us know the ROG BIOS, and the Extreme doesn’t disappoint with a full suite of tools for configuring your hardware and overclocking along with built-in secure erase for NVMe. Armoury Crate has grown and become a fantastic solution for monitoring and controlling RGB within Windows.

ASUS ProArt X570-CREATOR WIFI & GIGABYTE X570S AORUS MASTER- KitGuru

Focusing on the ASUS ProArt X570-Creator WiFi, this motherboard has a really unique position on X570 by offering genuine prosumer features such as Thunderbolt 4, 10GbE networking, and advanced security capabilities.

There are some downsides such as slightly questionable PCIe bandwidth allocations and less preferential fan splitter capabilities on heavily cooled systems. But this board will certainly appeal to WFH or freelancing prosumer types, especially with that 24/7 tested operation giving significant peace of mind.

ASUS TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI – Tom’s Hardware

The TUF boards used to be an upper-midrange line, with robust power delivery, protective armor and other features that made them pricier than most mid-range and budget offerings. But for the last couple of generations, Asus has let the TUF line lighten up a bit, repositioning the sub-brand as a more budget-focused offering for gamers, behind the Strix and ROG models. The appearance of these boards has also changed over the years, with the TUF Gaming Z590-Plus WIFI now fitting in with most build themes.
