    I know there are a lot of people interested in an AMD STX form factor, this is good news. :thumb:

    It's ok, I just wanna know when it will be available so that I can decide on whether I should wait for it or just get the z370 version, thank you for your help.

    I'm buying that motherboard as soon as possible. And maybe an Athlon 200GE, it's enough for my needs :p The two M.2 NVMe slots are extremely useful :p
    Wait... Does this mean that crossfire is now possible?

    Finally! I just hope it will support 65W tdp so one can use the 2400G

    I also send my thanks indirectly to AsRock:

    Very nice. $119 is definitely a steal.

    160 bucks for a Ryzen 5 2400G APU...
    150 bucks for 16GB of DDR4-2933 CAS 17 RAM (2 @ 8GB SO-DIMMs)...
    80 bucks for a 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD...
    Probably 30 bucks for the ASRock CPU cooler...?

    Figure some taxes & shipping, one could put together a pretty nice system for less than 600 bucks...

    And the fact that you can have two M.2 NVMe SSDs in RAID, and two 2.5" SATA III SSDs also in RAID, pretty nifty...

    I think I would run a mirrored boot/system array & a striped games/media array...

    Wouldn't it be better to get RAM with the lowest possible CAS since OC' is not possible ?

    3200MHz CAS14 are not cheap, but that would be my goto for an APU (just have to clarify the max RAM frequency on that Deskmini).
