The arrival last year of 8th Generation Intel Core processors alongside a Z370 platform meant increased horsepower for people who do more with their PCs, whether it's serious work like content creation and video editing, or recreational tasks like live-streaming gaming sessions. But extra cores aren't limited to flagship territory. They extend all the way down to the entry-level Core i3, and now they're joined by new H370, B360 and H310 platforms that bring additional connectivity to a lower price point.
These chipsets are now available across a complete family of ASUS 300-series motherboards. ASUS DNA is a solid foundation for any build. Every build and user is different, so ASUS has developed a deep lineup across ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, and Prime lines. While each family has distinct aesthetics and personalities, all three draw from core ASUS DNA that has been refined over nearly 30 years of making motherboards.
Signature features can be found throughout, from DIGI+ VRM circuitry that delivers reliable power to the CPU, to OptiMem trace routing that improves memory signaling, resulting in increased stability and performance. The UEFI BIOS makes it easy for users to dial-in their rig. Along with providing the usual selection of intuitive tuning options, it has a new search function that lets users quickly find and modify specific settings. Configuration profiles can now be saved and shared with others, and the firmware retains them after updates.
The new H370, B360, and H310 motherboards provide better cooling for gaming by intelligently adjusting the speed of system fans based on the GPU temperature of select ASUS and ROG graphics cards.
Plus, the H370 and B360 go beyond their Z370 predecessor by integrating not only USB 3.1 Gen 2 support for next-gen peripherals, but also optional 802.11ac Wi-Fi for wireless networking. They retain
support for Intel Optane Memory, which uses ultrafast flash storage to reduce load times for the mechanical storage commonly found in entry-level machines.
The new range includes the next-generation Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix motherboards with all the enhancements that gamers crave, new cyberpunk aesthetics and performance to match. The ASUS Prime series caters to the content creation and everyday productivity audience with a new level of user refinement and a design inspired by futuristic architecture.
ASUS H370, B360, and H310 chipset based motherboards will be available worldwide from April 3, 2018. Price List as follows:
