Review ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING [AM4] – Specs | Performance

Spread the love

A few weeks ago, ASUS, one of the leading motherboard manufacturers, delighted us with its top-of-the-line motherboard for the AMD X570 chipset, now it is the turn of a minor cousin under the same chipset, the ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING is a model that is right at the point where an enthusiast or gamer cannot be classified as a heavy gamer or an entry gamer, the ASUS STRIX series delivers within the mix of motherboard models the possibility of having high-end functionalities to a reduced price, without neglecting aesthetics.

The ASUS STRIX X570-E GAMING is made up of all the necessary elements to get the most out of Zen 2, from what is the support of PCIe 4.0 as well as Wifi, LAN 2.5G, as well as video outputs for what is Picasso .

Efficient capacitors and power phases and high resistance capacitors that are capable of offering up to 110% performance under load. The quality of the components in this area is vital to deliver greater durability of the platform, as well as delivering energy efficiency in each of the scenarios in which our team could present itself.

AMD X570 chipset.

The new chipset delivers major changes for the new AMD series, as well as for AM4 platforms within the high performance segment.

One of these new technologies is the adoption of the new PCIe 4.0 standard as the main innovation.

AMD shows to have one of the most modern I / O on the market this since it has a high data density in its PCIe channels, as well as high speed for its USB ports. All these innovations open to the motherboards based on this chipset the possibility of having great possibilities, in the chipset we would find PCIe 4.0 lines that will also control a series of USB 2.0 and 3.2 Gen 2 ports, some SATA 6Gbps and the StoreMI all connected to the CPU through a PCIe 4.0 x4.

The compatibility for the AM4 socket changes, the AMD X570 chipset would not be supporting Summit Ridge based processors or the first generation of Ryzen.

First look.

With a total of 8x SATA connectors, this motherboard gives space to storage units with an amount larger than usual today.

Providing in addition to a very striking aesthetic, the fan has a dust filter that combines fully with the scheme of the rest of the components.

Unlike other models of the STRIX line, this ASUS opportunity incorporates a POST LCD, a very useful element in the detection of faults or motherboard status.

The 4 memory modules on this motherboard deliver a support of up to 128GB of RAM.

The power supply for the CPU is given by 1x 8 pin and 1x 4 pin connectors.

ASUS SupremeFX, under this we find a Realtek ALC1220 powered by ASUS and renamed as S1220A.

As in all motherboards with AMD X570 chipset, we will find a small fan that tests the chipset for active cooling.

Fully covered, we can see 2x M.2 ports under their own heatsinks with thermal pad.

The cooling of the power phases is found with two heatsinks joined by a heatpipe.

Under the heatsink, we can clearly see both the power phases and the VRMs, on this board we can see up to 16 power phases, which in addition to the VRMs are fully cooled in contact with the heat sink pad.

Like the top-of-the-line motherboards, we have a DIGI + VRM controller model ASP14051 or Infineon-IR35201.

With two very well defined sectors, this STRIX model offers RGB lighting. ASUS as always maintains a sober look, without overdoing it with lighting.

The ASUS BIOS for its ROG models has the same arrangement, in addition to the same theme and / or color scheme, apparently the same BIOS interface as its latest motherboard models.

Through “F7” we enter the advanced mode directly, in the Main tab as its name says, some options and / or main information, CPU model, BIOS model, if the current configuration of the equipment.

As always one of the densest tabs in this series is that of overclocking, in ASUS called “Extreme Tweaker”, here we will find all the parameters to adjust our overcloking manually, both for the CPU and for the memories.

Below we see the section of the voltages to fine tune our overclocking.

In the “Advanced” tab a series of options that configure the functionality of the motherboard, such as configuration of on-board devices, SATA configuration, among others.

Finally, the “Tool” tab contains some very useful tools such as the “ASUS EZ Flash 3 Utility”


ASUS STRIX models have demonstrated reliability within the market, models that deliver high-end benefits at a more acceptable price within the market. Improving after each release of this series, ASUS incorporates new technologies to be at the level of the rest of the competitors.

For this particular model, you can experience all the performance and technology that AMD offers us today under an AMD X570 and Zen 2 chipset, so that with a motherboard of these characteristics you will be able to scale to new technologies in the future that AMD is implementing. We know very well how AMD points to a longevity of what socket refers to, so by opting for a motherboard in AMD it is also giving us a maintenance over time without changing the motherboard.

Aesthetic aspects, ASUS has always been recognized for not abusing lighting elements, so we will always be in front of sober models that will maintain a serious visual without losing a “technosensual” visual. These sober tones and lighting in strategic points of the motherboard form a harmonious environment with the other elements that we involve in our platform.

In what is price, although AMD X570 motherboards are above what one might be paying for a top-of-the-line chipset model (within motherboards that are not the highest), it exceeds more than some budget, this generating a low inclination for motherboards of this chipset, pointing to 400 series chipset.
