The Strix B350-F Gaming

Fremont, CA (June 2, 2017) -- — Since its release back in April, AMD’s Ryzen platform has quickly established itself as a viable option, delivering exemplary performance for daily computing and gaming. ASUS was ready for the early unveil, releasing an array of motherboards for value-packed PCs to models geared for high-end rigs. However, pressing demand for Ryzen-based systems shows a need for more options in the middle of the ASUS product stack. So today, we’re bolstering our portfolio with two new AM4 motherboards aimed squarely at gamers who wish to utilize Ryzen performance in their next PC build.

Based on the latest AMD X370 and B350 chipsets, the ATX-sized Strix X370-F and Strix B350-F include all the core ROG enhancements that make system setup a breeze, while offering performance that stands out from the crowd.

Where are the high end SFF boards like mini-ITX and Micro-ATX? I don't see anything like the ROG Impact or Gigabyte Gaming for Ryzen. There are plenty of ATX options, but IMO, ATX is only necessary for very high end builds or servers, because I believe Mini-ITX for size and Micro-ATX for expansion would be enough for 98% of desktop users.

This this this this this! In world where you get sfx powersupplies that can power high end Overclocked cpu and dual gpu systems, and there is barely support for more than dual gpu systems, why do they still overcrowd the market with atx boards? Everything in PC design is heading in the direction of smaller, lighter, faster, and more efficient. Apart from motherboards it seems. Please Asus, deliver us a high end micro atx board!
