Motherboards with isolated USB ports

Hi,

 

I was wondering if people have heard recent news about new boards that has some form of isolated USB ports, offered for example by Aorus and Asus

X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING, X470 AORUS GAMING 5 & 7

- ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO

 

Namely, their "USB DAC-UP 2" and "TrueVolt" (respectively) features. Also MSI offered an "USB Audio Device" back then (Z97).

 

I'm having annoying buzz and hum coming from my computer to HS5s and it's not the power supply of my PC (trying two other PSU brands and having the same issue) suggests that it would be my unshielded USB ports. My electricity (well the outlet) at home is well grounded and using an UPS didn't work (so I'm not having EMI/RFI issues), so I'm trying to see if I can get a motherboard that has this feature.

 

I would like to upgrade my platform so this is why I'm waiting on a new motherboard that has this feature. If it just doesn't happen there's

- iFi iSilencer+ A>A

- iFi iPurifier3

- and many more expensive options

 

Anyway, I hope we will be able to see new motherboards with that feature. Of course, I could ebay an AORUS GAMING X470, but I'd like to have an X570.

 

To recap, any news on new boards that has isolated USB ports? Thanks!

 

EDIT: I was planning on upgrading soon, hence asking about new motherboards.

Getting a High Speed as spec'ed by the Evo 4 website would require High Speed and not Full Speed, it would be a bet to try.

I would need two, one for my USB DAC and another for my audio interface. As I already plan to upgrade, if a motherboard has that feature, it makes - to me at least - no sense to spend (at least 70*2) 140$+CAD over getting a new motherboard that I'd get anyway.

 

I have hopes that Gigabyte or Asus would release new motherboards, but was checking if people heard anything regarding the subject.

FYI

 

Just found out that 

https://rog.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Crosshair/ROG-Crosshair-VIII-Hero-WI-FI-Model/

https://rog.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Crosshair/ROG-Crosshair-VIII-Formula-Model/

https://rog.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Crosshair/ROG-Crosshair-VIII-Hero-Model/

 

Offers TrueVolt with the X570 platform. Spending 500$ CAD only for that feature is kind of incredible, but looking at the only alternative (Intel side):

Not cheap but available. It's a top board. It'll have a lot of things you don't need.

Yeah that's the issue lol. Hopefully we'll get more options soon with the 5000 launch!

For those interested, I found another board with dedicated port:

https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-b550-e-gaming-model/ (350$ newegg)

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B550-I-GAMING/ (300$ canada computers)

 

At this price (300-350$ CAD) it's much better. It would even work for my Evo4 (since it's USB-C). But it'd be best to have two ports so I'll keep looking around!
