ASUS X470 motherboard layouts and specs have been leaked

A member of HardwareLuxx forums has discovered user manuals for upcoming Ryzen 2000 motherboards from ASUS.

ASUS X470 Series

Like I mentioned earlier, ASUS is preparing at least six X470 motherboards, including:

  • PRIME X470-PRO

The PRIME, TUF and STRIX motherboard manuals were discovered by emissary42 from HardwareLuxx forums. They contain layouts and specs of these motherboards.

Minimal differences can be found in PRIME X470 PRO and STRIX X470-F motherboards, apart from few debug LEDs.The X470 TUF PLUS, however, will definitely be a cheaper alternative, as it lacks some connectors, such as third PCIe x16.

Ryzen 2000 support faster memory

The spec-sheet confirms that 2nd Generation Ryzen and 1st Generation Ryzen are mainly different in one aspect: memory support. As leaked in SiSoftware review, Zen+ supports faster memory, which should provide better compatibility for faster memory kits.

In this document, ASUS confirms Ryzen 2000 Pinaccle Ridge CPUs will support memory up to 3466 MHz, whereas Ryzen 1000 (and Ryzen 2000 w/ Vega) only support up to 3200 MHz.
