Three brand-new X670E motherboards from ROG, ROG Strix, and TUF Gaming are revealed.
The eagerly awaited AMD AM5 platform will shortly go live in its entirety. We have a full lineup of motherboards prepared to use AMD’s next CPUs planned, and we are now prepared to reveal information on three more of these gaming boards. We’re launching the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, the ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi, and the TUF Gaming X670E-Plus WiFi to go along with the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, which was launched earlier this year. This trio is prepared to run your next-generation AMD gaming setup.
All the fives
Since DDR5 RAM compatibility and PCIe 5.0 connections are standard on our X670E motherboards, we are elevating everything to the power of five for the upcoming generation of motherboards.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi, and TUF Gaming X670E-Plus WiFi all enable you take advantage of the next-generation DDR5 RAM’s enormous bandwidth, scorching new speeds, and remarkable power efficiency. DDR5 unleashes a new level of performance with data rates 50% faster than previous-generation DDR4 memory, and these motherboards offer a variety of hardware and firmware improvements that allow users to overclock capable kits to their full maximum.
With PCIe 5.0 connection, you have access to the quickest next-generation SSDs and GPUs as soon as they are released, and you have a wide range of high-speed ports at your disposal right now. The new standard gives us the capacity to equip these boards with USB 3.2 Gen 22 ports—and a pair of USB4® ports on the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero—due to its double the link speeds of PCIe 4.0.
These motherboards include with a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 22 connection since so many gamers link quick external storage to their PCs’ front panel USB ports. Do you also need such connectors to quickly recharge your other devices? If possible, use a case with a front-panel USB Type-C connector to pair the X670E Hero board with so that you can easily access 60W charging through Quick Charge 4+.
Hassle-free building with Q-Design features
A high-end gaming PC has never been easier to create and customize thanks to unique ASUS Q-Design features. The PCIe Q-Release button is included on both the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero and ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi. Modern graphics cards are frequently equipped with robust cooling systems and durable backplates. Performance-wise, that’s fantastic, however they may make it difficult to disengage the PCIe release latch. With only one click of our PCIe Slot Q-Release button, you can remove your graphics card from the slot without fidgeting or using your little fingers.
Similar to typical DIMM slot designs, memory sticks had to be locked in on both sides in classic DIMM slots, and it wasn’t always simple for those with bigger fingers to release the latch closest to the graphics card. We also used our single-sided Q-DIMM latching design on all three of these X670E motherboards for this reason. With this configuration, you won’t have to be concerned about a latch being too close to your graphics card. All it takes to secure your memory stick in place is a single latch on the side of the DIMM slot that is simpler to access. This makes installing RAM—and updating it later—much simpler.
Even installing an M.2 drive has been made simpler. You may rest easy knowing that you won’t ever need to handle another small, easily misplaced M.2 screw thanks to our M.2 Q-Latch. An M.2 drive may now be fastened or released using only your fingertips.
