The Features of the ASUS STRIX X470-F Gaming in Detail:
The ASUS STRIX X470-F Gaming is an ATX format motherboard and offers one fast PCI-Express 3.0 slot with a full x16 speed connection along with an additional PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot. The four RAM banks can hold up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM at a clock frequency of up to 2.933 Megahertz and even frequencies up to 3.466 MHz with overclocking.
This Socket AM4 motherboard comes complete with two PCIe M.2 slots. Four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes connect the M.2 SSDs and they use the advanced NVM Express protocol (NVMe) in order to support data transfer rates of up to 32 Gbit/s, speeds that are up to eight times faster than that of SATA 6G hard drives. The second M.2 slot is connected using PCIe 3.0 x2, sharing the bandwidth with the first and second PCIe x1 slot and therefore only offers regular SATA6G speeds.
The I/O panel of the ASUS STRIX X470-F Gaming features a USB 3.0 connection with a Type C port. This new type of USB port is incredibly thin and allows devices to be inserted in either orientation. Additionally the board comes with two USB 3.1 ports. USB 3.1 aka USB 3.1 Gen 2 can achieve maximum speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s per port. USB ports utilising this standard support functions like quick charging for smartphones and tablets.
One of the special STRIX-specific features that ASUS has provided include, for example, onboard Status- and Debug LEDs, even RGB lighting. For RGB control and automatic synchronisation with other RGB components via Aura Sync, the ASUS STRIX X470-F Gaming also offers a digitally addressable header along with two headers for static RGB-LEDs. In terms of display outputs, the board provides HDMI- and DisplayPort connectors.
