Asus ROG Strix B660-I Gaming WIFI Review: Affordable ITX Excellence

The Asus ROG Strix B660-I Gaming WIFI may be the first Mini-ITX B660 board to land on our test bed, but it doesn’t disappoint. While the name may be a lot to get out, the price (for an ITX board) isn’t. Priced just under $220, it sits in the middle of other similar ITX boards and presents users with a well-rounded option in this space. The board comes loaded with features, including a PCIe 5.0 slot, dual M.2 sockets, last-gen flagship-class audio, integrated Wi-Fi 6 and the Asus ROG appearance that many love. In all, it’s a feature-rich ITX board at a reasonable price.

Performance in our test suite was average overall, with above-average results in the Procyon test suite. The rest of the results were close to the mean, and in most cases, you wouldn’t notice a performance difference between competing boards. Gaming performance was also spot on, easily mixing it up with the other boards. We saw some throttling of the CPU during stress testing, as most Alder-Lake B660 boards do at stock, but it did well even with heavily multi-threaded loads. Performance is not a concern.
