ASUS showcases four new motherboards based on the AMD X470 chipset, you can check all the features and specifications over here. Availability is slated for April 19.
The Republic of Gamers is as OG as PC gaming hardware gets, tracing its origins to 2006 with the original Crosshair motherboard. We also go way back with AMD, whose dual-core Athlon 64 processors fit into that first board’s AM2 socket. So we were thrilled when Ryzen revitalized gaming rigs and enthusiast desktops with multithreaded horsepower and accessible overclocking. Now AMD is poised to ascend again, this time on two fronts. Pinnacle Ridge processors enhance Ryzen’s appeal for hardcore machines with discrete graphics, while Raven Ridge chips bring Radeon GPUs capable of smooth 1080p gaming and 4K HDR video. These CPUs come with an updated X470 chipset, which we’ve used to create an all-new line of matching ROG motherboards.
Our X470 series spans four boards tailored for different builds. The ROG Crosshair VII Hero and its Wi-Fi twin lead the lineup with a stealthy design for serious overclockers and savvy enthusiasts. Its Strix X470-F Gaming sibling makes ROG enhancements more affordable, while the Strix X470-I Gaming shrinks everything down to Mini-ITX proportions for small-form-factor systems.
