ASUS ROG Strix B350I Gaming spotted

Revealed by e-tailer

The Swedish online e-tailer Inet has listed an unannounced ASUS motherboard, which goes by the name ROG Strix B350-I Gaming. This motherboard looks like a downsized version of the ROG Strix B350-F Gaming but it also sports features that can be found on high-end motherboards. For example there is a SupremeFX audio chip as well as the same M.2 heatsink that we can find on the ROG Strix Z270I Gaming.

As with all other STRIX Gaming series motherboards this mini-ITX model comes with the AURA feature as well, allowing you to change the illumination of the board from within Windows. In the case of expansion slots there is one full-sized and metal-strengthened PCIe slot as well as two M.2 slots. Since there is not much space available on mini-ITX motherboards to begin with, ASUS created a PCH heatsink that doubles as a cooler for the first M.2 drive. The second drive can be mounted in the slot that’s on the back-side of the PCB. Having a quick look at the SATA connectors we find four of them supporting the SATA-III standard.

Looking for additional features we find USB 3.0 ports internally and externally and a good mix of connectors at the I/O panel. There is a Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac module that also supports Bluetooth v4.1. Due to the lack of video output, we believe that this motherboard will be compatible with Ryzen CPUs only.

According to Inet, the ASUS ROG Strix B350I Gaming should costs 1'899 kr, which is equivalent to USD 233$. Since there is 25% VAT in Sweden, the final price in other countries could be a bit lower.
