The new Asus TUF B360M-Plus Gaming S features an LGA 1151 socket and a B360 mid-range chipset to ensure full compatibility with Intel’s most advanced processors. Its 4+3 phase VRM is powered by a combination of 24-pin ATP and 8-pin EPS connectors to ensure sufficient power and stability. Surrounding the socket are four DDR4 DIMM slots that support up to 64GB of memory in dual-channel configuration to get the most out of the processor. It also features a steel-reinforced PCI-Express 3.0 x 16 slot to easily support the weight of the most powerful and heavy-duty graphics cards on the market.
The Asus TUF B360M-Plus Gaming S features continue with two PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slots for expansion cards, two M.2-2280 slots with a PCIe gen 3.0 x4 interface, one of which also has a 6 Gbps SATA interface, and six 6 Gbps SATA ports so you can enjoy large doses of storage combining all the benefits of SSDs and HDDs.
We went to the network connection and found an Intel i219-V controller that gives life to a GbE interface. The integrated audio engine combines a Realtek ALC887 input level codec with 6-channel output, audio quality capacitors and isolated PCB section to avoid interference.
