ASUS ROG Rolls Out Two Mini-ITX Strix Motherboards

ASUS rolled out a pair of new mini-ITX Strix motherboards today. If you are building an itty-bitty gaming machine or HTPC, these two new boards look promising.

Both models possess many features you'd expect from full-sized Intel-based Strix motherboards such as support for 6th (Skylake) and 7th (Kaby Lake) generation Intel Core desktop processors, DDR4 support, PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, dual gigabit LAN, USB 3.1 Type-A/C, Bluetooth 4.1, dual Intel Optane-ready M.2 sockets, and 8-channel HD audio, all bundled into a tiny 6.7 x 6.7" package.
