ROG, ROG Strix, Prime, Pro, and TUF Gaming series come with upgraded power circuitry, great cooling, performance optimizations, and are loaded with features.
AMD’s 1st and 2nd Gen Ryzen™ desktop processors have been a massive hit with both gamers and professional users everywhere. Now AMD is returning with 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs that pair its Zen 2 architecture with next-gen PCI Express® 4.0 (PCIe) connectivity, promising more bandwidth and performance than previous generations. The family remains focused on offering high numbers of cores and threads, a class of chip that needs a quality motherboard. ASUS is ready for action with an array of new models based on the latest X570 chipset.
- The ROG Crosshair VIII series includes the Crosshair VIII Formula, Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) and Crosshair VIII Impact. ROG Strix Gaming series includes the Strix X570-E, Strix X570-F and Strix X570-I motherboards
- The ASUS X570 series includes the Pro WS X570-ACE, Prime X570-PRO and Prime X570-P. The TUF Gaming X570 series features the TUF Gaming X570- PLUS and TUF Gaming X570-PLUS with Wi-Fi
- ROG X570 boards feature upgraded power circuity with more power stages, efficient active cooling, exclusive OptiMem technology with an extra boost for ROG boards this generation, and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax).

The family remains focused on offering high numbers of cores and threads, a class of chip that needs a quality motherboard. ASUS is ready for action with an array of new models based on the latest X570 chipset. The cast is headlined by the Republic of Gamers, whose Crosshair VIII boards are fit for the most demanding overclockers and gamers looking to extract every ounce of performance from their systems. ROG Strix series focuses on good looks and strong performance without the bells and whistles with a cherry on top, while TUF Gaming rolls up essential features in battle-tested packages with affordable prices. Those who prefer subdued styling with carefully chosen features can turn to the Prime family, which still has enough punch for power users. Pushing further in that direction, our first Pro series motherboard for Ryzen processors provides a platform for serious workstations and creative professionals.
ROG ups the ante for X570 motherboards
The Republic of Gamers was founded way back in 2006, which is a long time ago in computing years. It redefined the meaning of “enthusiast motherboards” with the original Crosshair and has been evolving the formula ever since. Using top-notch components and cutting-edge designs capable of hitting the highest speeds, ROG engineers create motherboards that exude quality and craftsmanship while pushing the boundaries of desktop computing. Our new Crosshair VIII models set the bar for X570 motherboards. The pack is led by the armor-clad and liquid-ready Crosshair VIII Formula, followed closely by the Crosshair VIII Hero for less extravagant builds. Overclocking fanatics and small system lovers can look to the Mini-DTX Crosshair VIII Impact, a compact board built to shatter records.
Everyone can be a winner with ROG Strix
ROG Crosshair motherboards include the most exotic features for demanding builders creating complicated rigs that push the limits. Gamers don’t always want every single bell and whistle with a cherry on top, so the Strix series retains ROG’s style, performance, and overclocking cred while avoiding extras that might go unused. For the latest Ryzen platform, we have two full-size ATX boards — the ROG Strix X570-E and X570-F Gaming — along with a Mini-ITX tiny terror in the Strix X570-I Gaming.
Build a true battle station with TUF Gaming
We started TUF Gaming to create affordable products with essential gaming features, a distinctive look, and proven reliability. While we make ASUS components under this banner, users can also pick up compatible parts from members of the TUF Gaming Alliance. Matching TUF Gaming memory, coolers, power supplies, and even entire cases are available from our partners. We’re constantly expanding the Alliance with carefully chosen partners and working out new ways to extend the TUF concept to upcoming hardware. For X570, we have a single motherboard in two variations: the TUF Gaming X570-PLUS and its Wi-Fiequipped twin. At first glance, they look like simplified versions of our Prime models coupled with a different aesthetic, but there’s more than meets the eye. The digital VRM with Dr. MOS power stages and TUF chokes ensures the CPU gets a good supply of clean, rock-steady power, while TUF capacitors with 20% higher heat tolerance than standard alternatives keep the circuitry in line. Elaborate cooling arrangements can make use of the three hybrid chassis fan headers as well as an additional connector for an AIO cooler. The gigabit Ethernet port is protected by TUF LANGuard, which helps it survive lightning strikes and static electricity.
Pro and Prime do more than just gaming
AMD’s new Ryzen processors are particularly appealing for executing heavy-duty workloads, but gaming features and multicolored lighting aren’t the best options for the office, and workstations requires a particular set of skills. The Pro WS X570-ACE marries the new CPUs and their PCIe 4.0 connectivity to ECC RAM and management features not normally seen outside of pricey server-grade gear. If there’s one motherboard in our X570 lineup that balances every possible take on functionality and aesthetics, it’s the Prime X570-PRO. It ticks all the important checkboxes and wears a unique aesthetic with more universal appeal than gamer-oriented designs. Its distinctive look also appeals to enthusiasts who prefer more subdued styling for streamlined builds.
