Asus X670 boards

After MSI and Asus have already presented some high-end boards shortly before the launch of the new Ryzen generation, Asus has now seized the opportunity to present Micro-ATX and ITX models with ROG branding for X670E on their Gamescom presence to show. The manufacturer has planned this in the Micro-ATX format. It is designed to offer high-end performance in a smaller area and, in addition to the integrated I/O shield, has the typical ROG aesthetics, including lighting on the chipset and VRM coolers. The board only has a single PCI-E x16 slot that supports PCI-E 5.0 and also offers two M.2 slots with the 5.0 connection and another with PCI-E 4.0. There is also the ROG Gen Z.2 card for expansion. The power supply is properly dimensioned with 16+2 phases including 110 A power stages.

Razer Mouse Basilisk V3 Pro

Razer first presented their new “gaming” chewing gum before the really exciting product came out. The Basilisk V3 Pro is definitely intended for peripheral enthusiasts, which is also reflected in the price of just under 180 euros for the mouse alone. If you also want to benefit from the matching dock, you can pay almost 100 euros more.
In return, according to Razer, there is the highest precision within the product class, low latency, improved durability and speed. The decisive factor here is the optical Focus Pro 30K sensor, which is built into the mouse and has a resolution precision of 99.8 percent. As for the number of available buttons, the spec sheet lists 10+1 programmable buttons and a HyperScroll Tilt Wheel.
