ASUS replied to AMD's new Socket AM5 architecture at Computex by introducing the Ryzen 7000 Series with an exceedingly well-equipped top-of-the-line ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme.
According to the company, they have put all into development and are coming up with a solution that just catches the eye. In terms of capabilities, the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme includes all of the required characteristics of the Socket AM5 socket platform, such as DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0, as well as a 20 + 2 phase power supply.
The X670E control bridge motherboard has two x16 PCI Express 5.0 interfaces, five M.2 sockets, and four x4 PCI Express 5.0 solutions. Wi-Fi 6E is included, as well as a 10-gigabit Ethernet connection powered by the Marvell AQtion controller, with a 2.5-gigabit alternative.
There will also be a slew of USB4 and USB 3.2 Gen2 connectors, as well as the SupremeFX 7.1 audio codec.
Many connectors on the side of the motherboard have been rotated 90 degrees for improved cable management, and ASUS claims that they aimed to create a design that rarely requires the use of a screwdriver.
All of this is complemented by the lighting, and here you can immediately think of RGB LEDs, but the firm went much farther, as the motherboard was outfitted with an AniMe Matrix display in two spots, which you may recognize from the ROG Zephyrus G14.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme is not, of course, the only option. The company is developing a number of different options, but their capabilities aren't as extensive, but we can get a quick glance at the primary models in the video above.
