The ULTIMATE AMD X670E Motherboard Roundup Review

ASUS PRIME X670E-Pro WiFi
So kicking things off with the cheapest board we have which is the ASUS PRIME X670E-Pro WiFi which is definitely going to appeal to a lot of people due to the style and design with a predominantly silver and somewhat champagne colour scheme. For a board of this calibre though, ASUS has definitely stepped up the game with boot LEDs for troubleshooting, dual EPS power connectors and 14+2 power phases rated at 70 Amps per stage. The board also includes a PCI-Express Gen 5 slot for your graphics card, along with a total of 4 M.2 slots, of which one is ready for Gen 5 devices as well. What’s also nice to see is features that we’ve only ever seen on the super high-end, like the Q-release button so you’re not fumbling between your CPU cooler and the backplate of your toasty GPU in the hope of releasing it.
Heatsink-wise, the Prime definitely looks to be ample, with two separate blocks helping keep things at bay, with the larger of the two molding into that large I/O shroud with a built-in backplate. Again, it seems ASUS has really upped their game, here incorporating some high-end features like that, even on a lower-priced motherboard.
