ASUS TUF Z370-Pro Gaming Motherboard Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
The ASUS TUF Z370-Pro Gaming Motherboard is launching today with an SRP of just £149.99. I think that’s pretty reasonable for any high-end motherboard, at least before you dive into the crazy enthusiast-grade stuff. It’s certainly good value given the performance figures we’ve seen today too. Plus, it’s cheaper than the £187.99 Z370-F Gaming.
The new TUF motherboard from ASUS is one of their best ones yet. It doesn’t have bonkers features like you might find on something like the Maximum series, but it has more than enough for most users. If you’re building a high-end system for day-to-day workloads, as well as high-end gaming, it’s perfect for the job.
This is one of the best-looking motherboards on the market. Is it pretty? Not really, it’s quite aggressive in terms of design if anything, but I like that. The black and yellow/orange colours really make the board pop in terms of visuals, and it’s sure to look great in virtually any system build.
Of course, the aesthetics aren’t always that important. However, as good as it looks, that high-end hardware is every bit functional too. The TUF hardware is built for reliability, durability and stability. If you overclock your hardware and run your system hard for extended periods, even 24/7, TUF hardware is the way to go. It’s built to a higher standard, and comes with improved voltage protection systems to ensure your hardware stays in the best of health should the worst happen.
While it may not be the most expensive motherboard of the Z370 range, far from it in fact, it’s certainly one of the best performing. When it comes to work tasks, it’s a power house, and when it comes to gaming, it really blazes an impressive trail that’s hard to ignore. Add to that the option to add M.2 storage, Optane, fast DDR4 memory, multiple graphics cards, and more. Overall, this is by far one of the best value and best performing Z370 motherboards you can buy.
