The ASUS ROG Strix X570-E features a solid feature set and a good array of connectivity. While we do feel there’s room for 3 M.2 slots, I really don’t see a lot of folks making that jump if they’re already rocking 2. For professionals, a bulk hard drive array would suffice and this motherboard supports up 8 SATA devices. That, and this board also rocking some good performance numbers for the processor makes it a decent choice for gamers and content creators looking for a unified build for creating 4K content with large files.
Outside of that, the feature set looks solid and ASUS has really stepped up the ROG STRIX line to really compete with other motherboard makers’ top end releases already. At the end of the day, it ultimately boils down to looks and price for the ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming’s segment and it competes with most top boards from other brands like the AORUS MASTER or ASRock Taichi. For its price point, the Taichi is its main competitor with the ROG STRIX scoring higher due to feature offering of this board. The more expensive AORUS Master is a steeper price rivals but due to the price barrier, the ROG Strix X570 takes the crown.
With that said, from a functional perspective, the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming proves to be a compelling motherboard especially for power users that is looking to max out their connections, both internal and external. Creators that deal with mostly 4K content and change them from bulk SATA storage to high-speed PCIe NVMe drives, would appreciate the large array of options on this ASUS board while while still appreciating the fact that this is an ASUS product brandishing brand quality as its finest selling point. Its definitely not a top recommendation for most gaming system builders, but if you want the most out of the X570 chipset, the ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming is definitely a more accessible option than the main ROG boards.
If you’re looking to get a quality X570 boards from ASUS and is looking for a more work/play mix but don’t want to spend more for an ROG Hero class board, the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E is a great option and easily delivers the best for most systems. We do advise that this board may not scale if and should AMD release 16-core or more in future releases.
