ASUS Launch its Initial Series of AMD Ryzen 7000 B650/B650E Motherboards

ASUS has announced an extensive new lineup of AMD B650 and B650E motherboards, designed to offer tremendous value to anyone assembling a next-gen AMD Ryzen 7000 machine. Below is information about the B650 motherboard families that ASUS now offers, with details to help users find the model that best fits their needs and budget.

For those shopping for a gaming-first motherboard that delivers exceptional performance while exuding confident style, look no further than the ROG Strix lineup. From the flagship ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi to the compact-yet-mighty ROG Strix B650E-I Gaming WiFi, these boards bring high-end features and sizzling good looks. For a straightforward gaming board that delivers essential features in a no-frills design, check out the TUF Gaming family. Available in either ATX or micro-ATX form factors, these products deliver everything users need for a reliable gaming build.

Gamers are not the only people out there looking at everything that the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors have to offer. For creative professionals or for anyone who aspires to take their talents in CGI, filmmaking, engineering or design to the next level the ProArt B650-Creator offers great connectivity and sophisticated style. There is also a wide range of ASUS Prime motherboards that offer everything users need to build a solid PC with excellent features and performance.

ASUS ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi

Atop the stack sits the flagship ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi. The premium option for any builder intending to take the platform to its limits, this decked-out motherboard offers an outstanding selection of features. Its optimized power solution readies users to overclock AMDRyzen 7000 Series processors with 16+2 teamed power stages with 8+8 ProCool power connectors. Two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots stand ready for next-gen add-on cards. Four onboard M.2 slots—two of which are wired for PCIe 5.0—make it easy to install a lightning-quick storage array for one’s gaming library. To keep it all cool, each M.2 slot has its own high-performance heatsink, and massive VRM heatsinks with high-conductivity thermal pads silently use the cooling air moving through a case to keep the circuitry operating comfortably.

The ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi goes above and beyond to make the build process easy and intuitive. The dedicated PCIe Slot Q-Release button makes it simple to release a graphics card from the primary PCIe 5.0 x16 slot. The ASUS-exclusive M.2 Q-Latch system ensures that users will never again lose a tiny M.2 screw while installing a drive. BIOS FlashBack support gets a new build-up and runs without a hitch by letting users update their board’s firmware with nothing more than a power supply and a USB flash drive. And with a premium connectivity selection including 19 USB ports, DisplayPort® 1.4 and HDMI® 2.1 ports, and a Thunderbolt® 4 header, users have no trouble assembling their full Battlestations.

ASUS also took advantage of this new platform to augment the audio solution that it offers in its mainstream ROG Strix motherboards. ASUS has upgraded to the USB-based ALC4080 audio codec and includes a high-performance Savitech SV3H712 amp to drive audiophile-grade headset sound. DTS® Sound Unbound serves up immersive spatial audio, and the ASUS Sonic Studio III+ suite gives users precise control over output.

ASUS ROG Strix B650E-F Gaming WiFi

For those who love the aesthetics and overall feature set of the ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi but do not need two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and two PCIe 5.0 M.2 slots, there is the ROG Strix B650E-F Gaming WiFi. In many ways, this motherboard is a mirror image of its elder sibling, but it offers one PCIe® 5.0 x16 slot and one slot for a next-gen PCIe 5.0 M.2 drive—just the ticket for many a mainstream gaming PC.
Otherwise, one will find a broadly similar feature set between the two motherboards. The same stealthy black finish adorns their massive VRMs, shrouds and heatsinks; similar Aura Sync RGB LED accents provide a bold flourish of colour, and each board offers the same suite of DIY-friendly design features.

ROG Strix B650E-I Gaming WiFi

When building a PC for a home entertainment centre or dorm room—or anywhere that space is a primary limiting factor—an ATX system might just be too large. To support a dream Mini-ITX build, ASUS offers the ROG Strix B650E-I Gaming WiFi. This compact motherboard might fit easily into one hand, but it offers a high-end set of gaming features.

As a B650E board, it boasts both a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, making it ready for the fastest graphics cards of today and tomorrow. Its versatile and high-end connectivity selection, including a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port with DisplayPort Alt mode, gives usersbasically everything they need for their build. And conveniences like the pre-mounted I/O shield simplify the process of building in the tight confines of a Mini-ITX case.

ROG Strix B650-A Gaming WiFi

There is something special about a white-themed build for a gaming PC. A white finish focuses and amplifies RGB LED illumination—or provides a clean, cohesive aesthetic on its own merits. For the foundation of their next white build, users need look no further than the ROG Strix B650-A Gaming WiFi.
As with all ASUS B650E and B650 motherboards, the ROG Strix B650-A Gaming WiFi boasts an onboard PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot and DDR5 support. If a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot strikes users as more of a nice-to-have than a need-to-have feature for their next PC, this motherboard might be a better fit than the higher-end ROG Strix B650E motherboards. Its PCIe 4.0 x16 slot is more than capable of getting users into the game with a high-end graphics card.

ASUS TUF GAMING

If a user’s top priorities for a motherboard are reliable operation, sensible good looks and essential gaming performance, then the TUF Gaming lineup is an ideal option. ASUS designed these boards to give gamers high-quality options that are ready to go the distance.


TUF Gaming B650 motherboards offer a powerful value proposition for a next-gen AMD Ryzen gaming build. Available in either ATX or micro-ATX form factors, these boards offer DDR5 support, a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot for blazing-fast storage and an onboard USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 USB Type-C port for fast, versatile connectivity. High-bandwidth 2.5Gbps Ethernet comes standard, and WiFi 6 is available for those who need it.

To complement a TUF Gaming motherboard with an array of components and peripherals with the same aesthetic, check out the TUF Gaming Alliance. This collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC component brands helps ensure compatibility across a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With new partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.
