ASUS TUF GAMING B560-PLUS WIFI Motherboard Review
Ben Enos / 3 months ago
ASUS has released several new boards alongside the new Intel 11th Gen CPUs and today, we are taking a look at the TUF GAMING B560-PLUS WIFI. The TUF GAMING line of products has a unique colour scheme and even has its own little ecosystem as other manufacturers have made coolers, SSD, RAM, and more using the TUF GAMING branding. Designed for gaming without breaking the bank, the TUF GAMING range offers good quality products while remaining a more budget-friendly option.
ASUS TUF GAMING B560-PLUS WIFI
We have already reviewed the TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI, and it will be interesting to see what difference the B560 variant has to offer. The B560 is around £100 cheaper at the time of review, so while it may not have all the features found on the Z590, it will be nice to see how the performance stacks up from a users point of view. One of the main differences is going to be that the B560 comes with an 8+1 Power Phase design, whereas the Z590 came with a 14+2 design. One of the other things I have noticed is that the B560 model comes with eight USB ports on the rear IO when the Z590 only has seven. One thing is for sure, they definitely have a good few differences despite all the similarities they have.

I must say, this has to be the least amount of extra’s I have ever seen in a motherboard box! We have the normal manuals, some stickers, a WiFi antenna and a pair of SATA cables and that is it!
