When The Going Gets TUF …
If you have concerns about the VRM systems on various X570 boards then perhaps the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Pro will live up to your expectations. There are no phase doublers used on this board, instead the 7 +1 phases have two parallel power stages which gives a maximum theoretical Vcore output of 700 A. The TUF heatsinks on top of the VRMs are effective at moving heat off of these hardworking components as well, 40C under load at stock speeds, 65C with the Ryzen 9 3900X overclocked to 4.2 GHz at 1.35 V, without any airflow over those heatsinks.
In addition to the two PCIe 4.0 x16 slots and two PCIe 4.0 x1 slots are two M.2 ports, eight SATA plugs, 2.5 Gb LAN from Intel as well as WiFi 6. The board also offers four USB 3.2 Gen 1 and three USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, one of which is USB-C, both DisplayPort and HDMI out, it even has a combo PS/2 plug if you need it.
TechPowerUp had success overclocking as well, the 3900X was stable running with a base clock of 4.45 GHz at 1.35 V core voltage, even with the the DDR4-3600 kit overclocked to 4000 MHz via XMP. Indeed, about the only thing they didn’t particularly like was the software suite which comes with the board, as it was a little larger than seemed necessary. Check the whole shebang here.
The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Pro (WiFi) is the latest from the brand's popular TUF Gaming Alliance. Featuring a powerful VRM, plenty of storage connectivity, and a broad family of TUF components to match with, the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Pro (WiFi) could be the perfect balance of price to performance.
