The ROG Strix B650-A Gaming WiFi comes equipped with potent performance and thermal prowess in a fresh-looking package. Robust power delivery designed to handle the latest AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors is cooled with thick metal heatsinks that stand out against a black PCB. A PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, speedy DDR5 memory support, and the latest WiFi 6E networking fleshes out the futuristic feature set.
PCIE Slot Q Release – A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot’s security latch with a simple press, greatly simplifying the process of removing a PCIe card from the motherboard when it’s time to upgrade to a new GPU or add-in card.
M.2 Q-Latch – The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an SSD from an M.2 slot. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for a traditional screw.
Bios Flashback – BIOS FlashBack™ is a safe and simple way to update BIOS. Just drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port, and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.
Q-Led – Four onboard LEDs indicate power status and identify problems with CPU, memory, graphics card, or boot device for quick diagnosis.
Blazing fast storage is at your command with a PCIe 5.0 and two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, all featuring robust heatsinks to maximize performance. Push speeds even further, create a mirrored backup, or both; NVMe and SATA RAID configurations (0/1/10) are available through AMD RAIDXpert2. The top PCIe 4.0 x16 SafeSlot supports heavy graphics cards and features Q-Release for easy upgrades.
AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) pushes the CPU current and voltage budget to opportunistically increase performance. By aggressively tuning the PBO parameters, AMD’s algorithm can leverage the motherboard’s robust power solution to ramp up performance even higher.
Power Architecture – 12 + 2 power stages rated to 60A each deliver ample current in order to drive AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors through any workload with ease.
Alloy Chokes and Durable Capacitors – Hi-end chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards.
Six-Layer PCB – A multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.
DDR5 Strength – For those who want to fly past stock DDR5 speeds, the Strix B650-A is primed and ready for enthusiast-grade kits courtesy of vast AMD EXtended Profiles for Overclocking (EXPO) support. Seasoned veterans can further tweak performance via the extensive array of settings in the UEFI.
AEMP – ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP automatically detects the memory chips on your kit and then presents optimized profiles with higher frequency and tighter timings that you can effortlessly apply to unleash performance.
The ROG Strix B650-A delivers next-gen connectivity for ultrafast data transfers and low-latency networking. An advanced audio solution allows you to pick out the smallest cues and home in on your opponents.
WIFI 6E – Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi
Intel 2.5G Ethernet – Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel@ 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.
ROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software technologies that provide superior audio. The Strix B650-A implementation features the ALC4080 codec for high-resolution playback up to 32-bit/384 kHz across all channels. Front-panel output is streamed through the integrated Savitech amplifier that can drive high-fidelity acoustics to a wide variety of speakers and headsets.
Play in Style
Slick aesthetics and Aura Sync RGB controls let the ROG Strix B650-A shine in every build.
ID Design – A bold silver and white aesthetic with a dash of RGB lighting delivers a build that looks as futuristic as its feature set. A meld of form and function is illustrated by a cut-out I/O shield, which allows additional airflow to pass through the VRM heatsink channels below. This design encompases the M.2 and chipset heatsinks as well, and the whole look is tied together with game-centric decals. Pair the Strix B650-A with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully-customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.
Aura Sync – ROG Strix motherboards feature ASUS Aura technology, enabling full lighting control and a variety of presets for both onboard RGB LEDs and third-party accessories. Effects can be easily synced across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
Certified Compatibility – The ROG Strix B650-A bears the same mounting hole alignment as AM4 platforms, so it is backward compatible with many existing coolers, including all AIO offerings from ASUS and ROG.
Ecosystem – Level up your game with ROG Strix. Enjoy complementary aesthetics, control, and compatibility across AIO coolers, cases, peripherals, and much more. ROG offers more choices than any other brand.
