Today, Bryan from Tech YES City published the first review of yet unannounced B360 motherboard from ASUS.

Intel B360 because of AMD B350

If you are not familiar with what is happening with motherboard market, then let me just give you quick update. Last year AMD introduced B350 and X399 motherboards, effectively reserving chipset codenames before Intel had this chance. As a result, Intel’s B350 became B360. This is an entry-level chipset that should be in the interest of very casual gamers.

The B360M-A motherboard he tested was obtained in Thailand, a country with a very loose understanding of sale embargo.

This motherboard is in Micro-ATX form factor. It features single PCIe x16 slots, two PCIe x1 slots and a pair of M.2 interfaces. It also comes with six SATA ports, two PS2 connectors and VGA/DVI display outputs. The Prime series have lost quite a bit in the past few years in terms of design. The iconic black & white I/O covers are now a thing of a past. The power design based on 5 phases is obviously not meant for overclocking, which is severely limited on this motherboard.
