Asus has unveiled its newest product in the form of an AM4 motherboard. The motherboard is called ROG Crosshair VI Extreme and it’s based off of the X370 chipset, which is AMD’s high-end chipset for Ryzen and 7th Generation A-series processors. Asus mentioned that “the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme is designed for gamers and power users looking to maximize AMD Ryzen performance.”
Do keep in mind, however, that the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme comes in the ATX form factor. That aside, when it comes to design, this motherboard features the common “black and silver” colour scheme along with several LED-lit areas (RGB). One rather interesting trait of this motherboard is that it comes with the “Pro Clock Technology” which allow consumers to enhance the motherboard’s overclocking capabilities.
When it comes to specifications, the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme is fitted with two PCIe 3.0 and 2.0 x16 slots; four DDR4 RAM slots (up to 3200MHz); two M.2 sockets; and eight SATA 6Gbps ports. Besides that, this motherboard is also fitted with up to six USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports. Full specifications of this motherboard can be found here.
Those aside, Asus has mentioned that the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme will be made available in early August at selected regions. When it comes to pricing, the motherboard will come at a suggested retail price of US$349 (about RM1,496).
