AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
Create your own custom LED lighting effects with the intuitive Aura software. Cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build with the powerful RGB LEDs built in to ROG Strix B250F Gaming, or attach a separate RGB strip using the onboard 4-pin header. Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of twelve different lighting themes.
OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED technology makes ROG Strix B250F Gaming the control hub for your illumination ambitions so it's easy to synchronize incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronized devices.
EXCLUSIVE 3D MOUNT FOR EASY INSTALLATION
Dedicated 3D Mounts on the motherboard makes fitting 3D-printed parts easy. Using the same screws as M.2 drives and standard motherboard mounting holes, you can easily add nameplates, cable covers, or an M.2 fan holder.
As system parts are visible in custom PC builds, make yours stand out from the competition with 3D-printed accessories.
SHIELDED AUDIO, SUPERIOR SOUND
ROG Strix's SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments® RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!
SONIC STUDIO III
ROG Strix's Sonic Studio III audio-effects station has an intelligent routing feature made for streaming. The new routing feature ports streams to different outputs giving you full control over who hears what. With Sonic Studio III, you now can share your exciting in-game moments without worrying about frivolous DCMA takedown requests. In addition to that, Sonic Studio III also comes with app-level preferences for instant audio profiles, and improved noise filtering for conversations with total clarity!
SCAN AND DETECT TO DOMINATE
SONIC RADAR III
We've given Sonic Radar III an overhaul, evolving the audio engine to process sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you're always aware of what's going on around you and we've even added an onscreen arrow to help you pinpoint the enemy's position instantly! See the origin of key in-game sounds and hone your enemy-pinpointing skills. Plus the new audio boost feature provides filters that let you hear even the faintest sounds, so you can become the hunter, not the hunted!
ALL-ROUND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy real-time, system-wide power savings for gaming kicks that won't cost the earth! EPU automatically detects and adjusts power consumption according to your rig's needs, so you save money without compromising on thrills. EPU will also reduce CPU wattage to a set level and deliver even more savings with Away mode, creating an extreme energy-saving scenario that shuts down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the power level of the graphics card. That means full power for your gameplay and then total energy efficiency when you step away!
SPEED YOUR GAME LOADS
Uniquely intelligent technology that effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache II turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times and of course it's compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options!
INTEL GIGABIT ETHERNET
MORE THROUGHPUT AND LESS CPU USAGE FOR GREAT GAMING EXPERIENCES
ROG Strix B250F Gaming features the very latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead while offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for gaming.
PUMPED-UP THROUGHPUT, BEST SURGE PROTECTION
LANGuard means safer, more reliable connections for your battles! Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting processes join forces to protect your ROG Strix B250F Gaming's connection and deliver pumped-up throughput, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) for 1.9x-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5x-greater protection (up to 15KV) against surges!
TEAM UP TO BANISH LAG
GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming and now we've added Multi-Gate Teaming to team all your networks for maximum bandwidth and the smoothest-ever gameplay. You'll also enjoy all-new Intelligent mode, which automatically compiles a database by parsing new app data to ensure that every game is optimized for the best performance.
LET YOUR SSD SCREAM AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 32GBPS
ROG Strix B250F Gaming features dual M.2 slots with Socket 3 and M-key support. One slot supports PCIe 3.0 (2242/2260/2280/22110) for NVMe, and the other slot supports SATA. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.
USB 3.1 TYPE A+C
ULTIMATE 10GBPS DATA SPEEDS
With one USB 3.1 Type-A port and one reversible USB 3.1 Type-C port, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is also completely backward-compatible with existing USB devices -- so you'll be set for breakneck USB 3.1 speeds with every connection. And as an added bonus, ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further.
Beyond VR ready
ROG Strix B250F Gaming isn't just VR Ready it goes way beyond! The ASUS ROG Beyond VR Ready marque means that ROG Strix B250F Gaming has been tested with loads of class-leading components to ensure that your productivity, gaming and entertainment needs are tuned for maximum performance after you've taken off the headset. ASUS Beyond VR Ready opens up a new way to configure and build your dream system with total confidence.
