Today, we’ll be taking a look at the ASRock B760 PRO RS motherboard. This motherboard is aimed at the mainstream market and should be suitable for any system builder or users who wants the latest technologies at an affordable price.
It uses Intel’s B760 chipset and is compatible for all the latest Intel 13th Gen and older 12th Gen processors on the LGA1700 socket.
As I’ve mentioned before in one of our previous reviews, the B760 chipset offers few PCIE 4.0 lanes than the higher-end Z790. You get a total of up to 10 usable PCIE 4.0 lanes, which is I think is more than enough for most use cases.
For stability, the motherboard features a 10+1+1 Phase Power Design, Dr.MOS for VCore+GT, and supports DDR5 ram with speeds of up to DDR5-7200 OC.
Expansion slots include 1 x PCIe 5.0 x16 slot for next-gen graphics cards, 1 x PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16, another 1 x PCIe 3.0 x1 slot, and finally 1 x M.2 Key-E for the optional WiFi 6.
For storage, it comes with 2 x Hyper M.2 PCIE Gen4x4 slot for SSDs, 1 x M.2 PCIE Gen4x2 slot, as well as 4 additional SATA ports.
There’s plenty of USB ports, a total 9 USB 3.2 ports and 4 USB 2.0 ports. You also get the Dragon 2.5GB LAN, but no WiFi 6E. For that you’ll need to get the optional Wifi module on the M.2 Key-E slot.
And finally, you get all of ASRock’s uniques features including the 7.1 HD audio, eDP port for ASRock’s internal LCD display, Dr.MOS, 6-layer PCB and ASRock’s Polychrome RGB.
Intel B760 Chipset
Intel’s comprehensive chipset portfolio also includes the Intel® H770 and B760 chipsets that, when paired with Intel’s 13th Gen Intel® Core desktop processors deliver dynamic capabilities and accelerated connectivity. Both chipsets support memory overclocking1 but offer distinct I/O and PCIe processor configurations. The H770 chipset accelerates multi-tasking with greater data throughput capabilities of up to 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes, 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes, bifurcation of the CPU PCIe lanes, and support for SATA and PCIe RAID. The B760 brings up to 10 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 4 PCIe 3.0 lanes for the speed and performance to power modern work needs. Choose the features you need to get the most from your everyday gaming, creating, and productivity.
The B760 chipset allows a total 10 usable PCIE 4.0 lanes, with upto a maximum memory capacity of 128GB. It’s also capable of up to 6 x USB 3.2 Gen1 5Gbps, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen2 10Gbps and up to 2 x USB 3.2 Gen2x2 20Gbps. Strangley no mention of PCIE 5.0 Gen5 support for NVME SSDs.
I would like to thank ASRock for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what ASRock has to say about themselves on their website:
