The MicroATX motherboard is expected to deliver a powerful performance.
The ROG Crosshairs X670E Gene microATX motherboard from Asus is designed to be compatible with AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 7000-series ‘Raphael’ processors in AM5 form factor. This new mainboard is primarily designed to cater to compact PCs but because it is part of the ROG Crosshair lineup, it will feature a wide range of features as well as the ability to overclock with the rest of the ROG lineup.
Asus Teases the ROG Crosshair X670E
Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Gene is equipped with a 16+2-phase CPU voltage regulating module (VRM), each phase rated at 110A, for serious overclocking capability, according to a slide shared User. There will also be one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot for graphics cards on the platform, one M.2 slot for an SSD with a PCIe 5.0 x4 interface, and a PCIe x1 slot for add-in cards on the platform. There is also an option for those who need to install more than one M.2 drive on their motherboard to bundle their ROG Gen-Z.2 card with their board.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Gene from Asustek will be able to connect to the internet via a range of different connectivity options, including Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth adapters, an Ethernet port, dual USB 4 connectors, and USB 3.2 Gen 2×1 connectors as well as 7.1-channel audio.
Asus demonstrated a slide at a live event depicting the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene motherboard that is based on AMD’s X670E chipset, but we should be able to see it pretty soon, as it was demonstrated at a live event. Although it may not launch on the same day as its ATX platforms based on AMD’s X670E chipset, you can expect it to appear sooner rather than later. Anyhow, it is safe to say that it will be available this fall, assuming that it meets all the requirements.
As for the pricing of the product, it’s difficult to make any guesses with regard to that. The AMD X670E platform seems quite pricey in general, am I right? What’s its price like? We will have to wait and see what happens, but we are talking about hundreds of dollars here.
