ASUS Introduces Four New AMD B650 Motherboard Series

After the launch of X670 Series motherboards, ASUS now introduces its midrange line of B650 motherboards – under four model lines: ROG, TUF Gaming, ProArt and PRIME series.

This arsenal of ASUS AM5 motherboards will come with two flavors – the standard B650 and the souped-up version dubbed B650E, which includes extra PCIe 5.0 lanes dedicated to GPUs. All comes with PCIe 5.0 slots as well as exclusive DDR5 support – as AMD heads to next-gen with its new Ryzen 7000 series processors. USB Type-C comes standard on all B650 series models, says ASUS.

The premium line of ASUS ROG motherboards comes with various form factors from mITX to full-size ATX – with integrated I/O shields, up to 16+2 phase VRMs, Intel 2.5GbE LAN and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, with select models featuring two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and up to four M.2 slots (two of which wired as PCIe 5.0 x4). Overclocking tools are present here as well, with select models including Dynamic OC Switcher and Core Flex for more granular tuning, while AMD’s own Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) comes as standard.

The flagship of B650 series comes in the form of ROG STRIX B650E-E Gaming WiFi – aside from featuring all the features listed so far, it also includes a Thunderbolt 4 header for those preferring a single-cable solution for high-speed peripherals. The primary PCIe slot and various M.2 slots comes with Q-Latch for easy installation and removal, and features an array of 19 USB ports ranging from Type-A to Type-C in various speeds. In the audio department, it comes with upgraded ALC4080 audio codec and Savitech SV3H712 amplifiers for driving high-impedance headphones.

A step down from flagship is the B650E-F Gaming WiFi – which retains all features present on the flagship model except one less PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, and one less PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slot. For SFF builders, the B650E-I has them covered: a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port comes with DisplayPort Alt Mode providing display outputs with a single cable. The entry ticket to ROG lineup is the B650-A Gaming WiFi – colored in white for those preferring white-themed builds, this motherboard runs on PCIe 4.0 x16 for the GPU, still more than enough to handle the latest GPU’s bandwidth.

The mainstream gaming line of ASUS TUF Gaming B650 motherboards come next – featuring in standard ATX and micro-ATX flavors, both motherboards feature PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slots and onboard USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port for high-speed peripherals. 2.5GbE LAN comes as standard, as well as Wi-Fi 6 for wireless connectivity.

For creators, ASUS’s ProArt B650-Creator covers the bases for creators’ needs, including running on PCIe 4.0 x8 + x8 mode for both slots with dual-GPU setups. Quick Charge 4+ comes with the front-panel USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port for device charging, plus a USB Type-C on the rear panel capable of DisplayPort Alt Mode to drive external displays up to 8K 60Hz.

Pokdepinion: The PRIME motherboard design looks pretty nice compared to the last ones actually.
