ASUS Released Controversial Ads Targeting GIGABYTE and MSI X570 Motherboards for Ryzen 3000; AMD Intervenes

This week, ASUS sparked controversy by releasing the marketing slides for their X570 motherboards, which was met with severe criticism by GIGABYTE and MSI. Owing to the defaming nature of the slides, GIGABYTE and MSI reached out to AMD to take care of the situation. In response, AMD asked ASUS to make sure these slides never see the internet again.

ASUS later deleted the slides but luckily, VideoCardz got hold of them and posted them to the public. Here are some of the deleted slides by ASUS:

As you can see, the slides claim that Asus motherboards offer significantly better thermals, overclocking capabilities, VRMs and power phases to the point of actually making them look like a cheap marketing stunt, which is exactly what they were.

In response, GIGABYTE claimed that the slides were severely misleading, for instance, X570 Aorus Pro does feature Q Flash+ (aka BIOS Flashback), and the motherboard also features 6 PCB layers, contrary to ASUS marketing slides claiming only 4 for Aorus Pro.
