    Is there any mobo with Thunderbolt 3 that you can recommend?

    What's considered the best/smallest mini-itx mb and case combo for the Ryzen5 2400G? No discrete vc will be used. I want this to be as transportable as possible.
  • rettinger
    The Biostar X370 newegg link says that it's out of stock and may not be restocked. So, I'm not sure that's a helpful suggestion.
  • Soaptrail
    Are AMD 470 motherboards not mass produced yet? Not one is on this list.

    Hi Thomas,
    There seems to be mistake on the pricing of the Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming or the $80 price tag is for another motherboard.
  • thalian
    1. The above comment is correct. I only WISH the Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming mobo was available for $80!!! That link actually goes to Amazon's listing for the previous board: ASRock H370M PRO4 .
    2. Why no other boards priced under $200? And why only 6 Intel mainstream LGA-1151 boards? There's a ton of them out there and there have to be more than 6 that are good to use.
  • tazmo8448
    Yeah I'd like to see the AMD X470 boards reviewed too...as per Soaptrails post.
  • dahenger
    AMD X470 please.
  • Jungstar
    No full size b450 of b350 nor micro atx boards???
  • Frederic Jeanbart
    Best X299... For Gaming. Ok. Now, when will there be a serious article for such high end motherboards that actually aren't made for gaming but rather content creation, engineering, etc.?
  • kep55
    I agree with Frederic Jeanbart. I use my old Gigabyte MA770-UD3 based unit for work not wasting time. How about some info on work and mainstream mobos?
