While the AMD X570 PCH costs more than the previous generations, ASUS’ boards still start from a pretty affordable price point. With every one of the boards featuring PCIe 4.0 support and at least 12+2 VRM configurations, these prices are pretty reasonable.

ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi)

This will be ASUS Malaysia’s highest end AMD X570 board for now. It comes with with an impressive 14+2 VRM configuration, and it also comes with support for WiFi 6 (802.11ax) out of the box. This board does not come with display outputs though, so those who intend to get a Ryzen APU processor need not consider this board.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi) is priced at RM2039.

ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming

Offered as an affordable option for those who want ROG’s style and performance sans the features intended for extreme overclocking, the ASUS ROG Strix X570-F drops a few VRM phases and the cool WiFi 6 support, but it does get display output. Two, in fact, with both HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 available. It still sports ASUS’ SafeSlot PCIe reinforcement and a pre-mounted I/O shield, so the board will be just as easy to build with as the ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi).

The ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming is priced at RM1439.

ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (WiFi)

TUF Gaming X570-PLUS(WI-FI)

ASUS only has one TUF Gaming board for the AMD X570 platform, and this is it. It sports a Intel Wireless-AC 9260 WiFi card for up to 1733 Mbps WiFi speeds and also Bluetooth 5.0. Like the ROG Strix X570-F Gaming, the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (WiFi) also sports HDMI and DisplayPort display outputs. It sports a similar 12+2 VRM configuration as the ROG Strix X570-F Gaming too, but it lacks support for NVIDIA SLI as the second full-length PCIe slot only runs at PCIe 4.0 x4.

The ASUS TUF Gaming is priced at RM1109.

Pokdepinion: I nearly thought the ROG Strix X570-F Gaming had a passively cooled PCH… But it was just hidden. Damn that’s a cool way to do it.
