So the Swedish retailer, Inet has listed a new Asus Strix B350 ITX motherboard, and man does it look interesting. Sadly there have been few AM4 ITX boards on the market so far, so for ITX builders, this could be what they are looking for.
What makes this motherboard so interesting, is the peculiar setup above the PCI Express slot. It’s a daughterboard containing the soundcard (or some of it), as well as an M.2 slot with cooler, floating above the rest of the motherboard.
- Number of M.2: 2 (So apparently this board has two M.2 ports. I wonder if the second is on the back)
- USB 2.0 (Internal): 2
- USB 3.1 (Internal) Gen 1: 2
- USB 3.1 (External) Gen 1: 4
- USB 3.1 (External) Gen 2: 2
