The ASUS TUF GAMING Z790-BTF WIFI features the LGA 1700 socket, accommodating Intel’s 14th and 13th Gen processors. In terms of VRM capabilities, it incorporates 16 + 1 + 1 60A DrMOS power stages shielded by spacious white and silver VRM heatsinks adorned with aluminum brushing for an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The Z790-BTF WIFI supports a PCIe 5.0 x 16 interface and a 1x PCIe 4.0 x 16 expansion slot. Offering flexibility in memory and storage, it includes 4 x DIMM slots supporting DDR5-7200, 4x M.2 slots, and 4 x SATA 6Gb/s ports, catering to contemporary requirements.

Concerning onboard connectivity, the motherboard is equipped with WiFi-7 and Bluetooth 5.4 support. In the realm of USB ports, there’s 1x USB Type-C (20 Gbps), 2x USB Type-A, 1x USB Type-C (10 Gbps), and 4x USB Type-A (5 Gbps), ensuring a comprehensive array of connectivity options.

The TUF GAMING Z790-BTF WIFI stands out due to its unique onboard connector arrangement, placing power connectors like the 8-pin ATX and the 24-pin motherboard at the rear. This design ensures that no cables are visible from the front, resulting in a clean and professional aesthetic.

Additionally, the motherboard includes a GC-HPWR slot for GPUs. It introduces a novel standard capable of delivering approximately 600W of power without relying on a dedicated power connector like the 12VHPWR. This eliminates issues associated with such connectors, eliminates the need for wiring from your power supply, and ensures smooth power delivery. Consequently, the GC-HPWR stands as an excellent option for those seeking a distinctive edge.

In addition to introducing the motherboard, ASUS has revealed the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER BTF White Edition. Without delving into the SKU’s specifications, the GPU boasts an attractive white color scheme and a substantial triple-fan design, complemented by the GC-HPWR interface for power supply from compatible motherboards. If you’re aiming for an all-white build and pairing components from the BTF series, these products seamlessly come together for a perfect match.

While the company hasn’t disclosed the pricing for the latest BTF additions, it’s reasonable to anticipate a higher cost compared to standard variants. This is justified by the inclusion of innovative features in the industry, warranting a premium price.
