Amid a plethora of ASUS announcements and product showcases at CES 2020, one of the more interesting pieces of hardware on display came on the motherboard side. In what ASUS is currently calling a concept, it had a full system with white components on display, including an X570 Strix motherboard dressed to the nines in white heatsinks and covers.
While ASUS hasn't given much away about which model it's based on. the specifications list include support for DDR4-4400 memory with a capacity of up to 128 GB, with an Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface, and a Realtek RTL8125-AG 2.5 G Ethernet controller. A SupremeFX S1220A HD audio codec handles the onboard audio, while the rear panel features plenty of USB 3.2 Gen2 connectivity. The PCB, controller layout and overall PCB layout not only resemble the ASUS ROG Strix X570 E Gaming motherboard, but it has identical specifications match between the two boards.
On the rear panel cover is the typical Strix branding with an illuminated Strix RGB logo, while the M.2 heatsinks and chipset heatsink have the Strix inspired graffiti etching. A two-digit LED debugger is located at the bottom, with plenty of headers and connectors for superior connectivity; again, resemblant of the ASUS ROG Strix X570 E-Gaming. As with all other ASUS X570 models, the X570 is actively cooled.
At present, the all-white ROG Strix X570 motherboard is just a concept, but we've seen ASUS release white themed models before including the Prime series, as well as limited-edition versions of its Sabertooths (now TUF). This could be one ASUS concept that makes it to retail, but it still remains to be seen.

nitemareglitch - Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - linkRight? Need someone to get ballsey like Sapphire did back in the day with their Pure motherboards based on those early AMD chipsets.
AdditionalPylons - Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - linkI agree. With "All-White" in the title I was expecting something like MSI's Arctic models.
andrewaggb - Thursday, January 9, 2020 - linkAgreed. I also clicked on the article expecting an ASUS equivalent to the MSI Arctic
PeachNCream - Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - linkThat is some serious drivel on the chipset. It's like looking at the rear bumper of some little kid's Honda Civic that's plastered with stickers from three different brands of tire (none of which are actually on the car) and several Asian language stickers the driver doesn't understand so they could mean anything from "dragon" to "I gotta pee!"
s.yu - Thursday, January 9, 2020 - linkIt's ugly yes but the Chinese says "player" or "gamer" and the Japanese says "hybrid" for some reason.
That sticker also says "tune your rig you want". I'm pretty sure that's grammatically unsound.

Asus already have their Prime Pro series of boards with white accents. They are cheaper and better than the Strix because you aren't getting or paying for s**tty "gaming" branding.
bonehead123 - Thursday, January 9, 2020 - linkHere we go again, a product being called "WHITE" when in fact the only parts that are white are the covers (and a crappy shade of white at that)....the pbc, slots, caps, chips, connectors and other parts are some gross combo of shitty colors that don't even match nor compliment each other in any way, shape or form....
Can't someone puhleeeze sue these shitheads for false advertising....oh pretty puhleeeze !
Bersu - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkNo offense to you, mister Bonshor, but you probably need to see a doctor - you may be colorblind: this is clearly black with some medium-sized white shroud slapped on it. "All white" motherboards are something like MSI Arctic
