ASUS Kiev office announced the sale of LGA1700 motherboards based on the Intel H670, B660 and H610 chipset. They are deprived of the overclocking power of 12th-generation processors offered by the LGA1700 / Z690 models, but they also cost much less. It’s fair to say that motherboards with the H670 and B660 chipset still allow for RAM overclocking.
Another drawback may be the operation of the upper PCI Express x16 slot in PCI-E 4.0 mode. This feature is typical for most inexpensive motherboards, so those who want to get a video card with PCI-E 5.0 in the future will have to pay extra for a board with support for a high-speed interface. We remind you that the controller built into Intel Alder Lake-S processors is capable of running 16 PCI Express 5.0 lanes.
If we talk about the assortment of ASUS LGA1700 boards with H670 / B660 / H610 logic, today they are rather limited in Ukrainian stores. Buyers have access to solutions from the Prime and TUF Gaming lines, a common feature of which is support for DDR4 RAM, as well as a ROG Strix model with DDR5 slots. Currently, an array of its own RAM will cost several times as much as the board itself. Estimated prices for new ASUS products are listed below.
