Asus to launch two new Ryzen Mini-ITX boards next month

Small form factor, but with ROG gaming power.

Asus is dropping two new Socket AM4 Mini-ITX motherboards next month, both from the ROG Strix brand.

All that really separates the two new boards are the chipsets they sport - otherwise the ROG Strix X370-I and B350-I are identical. They support liquid cooling, have Aura Sync-enabled RGB lighting, and a riser card that combines Supreme FX audio and M.2 storage. 

There's six-phase power identical to that on larger ATX boards, and shorter traces for the RAM slots, which improves signalling and boosts DDR4-3600 speeds. 5-Way Optimisation makes overclocking simple for every level of overclocker, with intelligent auto-tuning and cooling.

Here's the full spec list:
