ASUS is taking us Back to the Future with B760M BTF motherboard

The company has now listed its first BTF motherboard based on the Intel 700 series chipset. 


The concept of placing all power and interface connectors on the other side is not new. Motherboard manufacturers have been experimenting with this idea for the last couple of years. We have seen the prototypes from MSI (Project Zero) or Gigabyte (Project Stealth).

In fact, the idea is not even new to ASUS. Just a few months ago, we saw the first concept of such a design called DIY-APE, which would launch for Intel 600, AMD 600 and future motherboard chipsets. We are past the launch of the Intel B760 series and ASUS is now announcing its first motherboard based on this concept, except with a new name.

The TUF Gaming B760M BTF is a Micro-ATX design based on, thus far, the most affordable Intel 700 chipset. The basic idea of this motherboard is to provide all necessary connectors and headers on the other side of the motherboard. This means that cable management would be much simpler with easier access to most connectors, but only as long as the PC case has all the necessary holes.


ASUS has decided to put DDR4 memory on this board, meaning it should be even cheaper to build a system around it. Officially it supports up to 4xDDR4-5333 overclocked memory. Furthermore, users will find 2.5Gb Ethernet port and even WiFi-6 built-in.

What is located on the back:

  • CPU – EPS
  • 24pin motherboard
  • USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C and USB 3.2 Gen1 headers
  • SATA
  • M.2 2280 slot
  • USB 2.0 internal headers
  • ARGB headers
  • CPU / CHA fan headers
  • HD Audio, Thunderbolt headers

Gigabyte’s Stealth series were released with Maingear prebuilt systems, but these motherboards are not available through the DIY market. That said, the ASUS BTF motherboard would be the first to launch commercially. Unfortunately, ASUS is not providing any pricing details at this time.
