Flexible M.2 heatsink takes care of two M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfer.
VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads
The VRM heatsink with an underneath thermal pad improves heat transfer from the MOSFETs for better cooling performance.
Cooler by Design
Prime B560 Series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert software or via the UEFI BIOS.
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.
4-Pin PWM/DC Fan
Each onboard header supports the auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Prime B560 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 11th Generation Intel® Core processors. ASUS B560 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling, and flexible transfer options.
ASUS OptiMem II
Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Benefits of ASUS OptiMem II:
Motherboards with OptiMem II technology were tested with Synopsys HSPICE simulation software
Two M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
Prime B560M-A offers a total of two M.2 slots, with one slot supporting data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCI Express® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.
** The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0, and the M.2_2 supports PCIe 3.0.
PCIe® 4.0 Slot
ASUS B560 motherboards are designed specifically for 11th Generation Intel® Core CPUs and offer PCIe® 4.0 connectivity for the latest GPUs. The wide bandwidth and superfast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly.
Intel® 1 Gb Ethernet
Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C®
Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including rear USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C® port , transmission speeds up to 10 Gbps.
V-M.2 Slot Key E for Wi-Fi
PRIME B560M-A comes along with a vertical M.2 (Key E) slot and ASUS exclusive Wi-Fi cardholder which provide you the flexibility to upgrade your networking solution by installing an M.2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module.
