ASUS has just introduced the ROG Strix B460-H Gaming motherboard, which will join the Strix-F nad Micro-ATX Strix-G B460 motherboards. This board is of course based on Intel’s mid-range B460 chipset for 10th generation Core “Comet Lake” processors and features the LGA1200 socket. Besides the normal features you would get from the B460 chipset you are also going to get Intel Ethernet and a premium SupremeFX onboard audio solution.
The Strix-H makes use of a simple 8-phase CPU VRM that gets power from a single 8-pin EPS connector. The board has a black PCB with red and grey streaks across it, overall it looks quite good. There is an integrated I/O shield, which is great to see. The top PCI-Express slot is metal reinforced and the top M.2 slot gets a M.2 heatsink. Both of the M.2 slots on the board are PCIe gen 3.0 x4. There is also a M.2 E-key slot for WLAN cards.
The LGA1200 socket is wired to four DDR4 DIMM slots which support up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 memory (max for the platform is 2933 MHz). As far as other storage there are six SATA 6GB/s ports. The Ethernet connection is powered by the Intel i219-V controller. No word yet on pricing.
