ASUS ROG STRIX B560-I Motherboard Overview
The ASUS ROG STRIX B560-I Gaming Wi-Fi Intel 10th and 11th Gen Mini ITX Motherboard packs boosted power delivery, innovative cooling features, and support for the latest superfast storage devices into the diminutive Mini ITX form factor. Load it up and enjoy 11th Generation Intel Core processor performance that rivals full-size builds.
Robust power delivery and comprehensive cooling features ensure exceptional performance, while AI-powered enhancements optimize network settings and improve in-game communication — all to help you maximize the full potential of your rig. 6+2 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand. Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards. The ASUS ProCool socket is built to exacting specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines, enabling lower impedance and better heat dissipation. The built-in Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU. The PCB design quickly dissipates heat around the VRM to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom. ROG Strix B560 motherboards feature comprehensive cooling options that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio, while preserving vocals at the same time. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are intelligently neutralized so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while gaming or in calls. The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
