Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS Wi-Fi AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard
The ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (Wi-Fi) AM4 ATX Motherboard is built on the AMD X570 chipset supporting second- and third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with an AM4 socket. It has four memory slots for up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, which can run up to 4400 MHz when overclocked. For storage, it's equipped with eight SATA III ports and two 22110 M.2 slots. There are two PCIe 4.0 x16 slots for graphics cards, which can run at x16/x4 when both slots are filled, and another two PCIe 4.0 x1 slots for other PCI-based hardware. Other integrated features include Intel AC 9260 Wi-Fi 5, Realtek L8200A Gigabit LAN, and Realtek ALC S1200A 8-channel HD audio.
AMD X570 Chipset
The AMD X570 chipset is designed around 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 3000-series processors. Along with multiple improvements, its most noteworthy one is the addition of PCIe 4.0. PCIe 4.0 has roughly double the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, which is beneficial for graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more. A TPM header allows you to install an optional TPM chip allowing you to add a layer of security for your hardware using cryptographic processing.
ProCool Power Connector – Enhanced 8+4-pin power connectors with improved endurance and functionality.
Power Stages with DrMOS Design – Combines high- and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package.
TUF Chokes & Capacitors – Delivers steady power to the CPU with increased temperature tolerance and lifespan.
6-Layer PCB Design – Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components across the board.
Equipped with multiple 4-pin PWM/DC fan headers, this motherboard has plenty of cooling potential to keep your system in check. It also has an active chipset heatsink solution and a M.2 heatsink to keep things cool and prevent throttling.
