ASUS ROG STRIX B550-XE GAMING WIFI

ASUS ROG STRIX B550-XE Gaming WiFi is the ROG STRIX series motherboard, which was released specifically for the new AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors. It may seem to some that the difference in the name by only one letter does not make a new product out of the board, but in this case everything is somewhat different. Yes, the design of the ROG STRIX B550-XE Gaming and ROG STRIX B550-E Gaming is similar, but this is just not the first glance. Model XE received a new design of the cooling system (and even now it is active), a completely different set of power elements in the power subsystem, as well as something really eye-catching in the package.

ASUS ROG STRIX B450-I GAMING
