Asus AMD X670E Motherboards Announced – ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme Leads the Pack

Share this:

At the Canadian National Expo, Asus recently announced its new AMD X670E motherboards. These motherboards are the next-generation AMD5 platform designed for the Ryzen 7000 CPUs, with support for DDR5, PCIe 5.0, and WiFi 6E. Asus announced four motherboards, with the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme sitting on top of the lineup. It is followed by the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, then ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming, and the TUF Gaming X670E-Plus WiFi. These are all “X670E” motherboards, so I am expecting Asus will announce its “X60” (non-Extreme) motherboards later. You can learn more about these new motherboards from the official news release below.

In addition, all three featured motherboards will include the single-sided Q-DIMM latching design to ensure ease of installation and allowing memory sticks to hold firmly in place.

Lastly, the boards include the M.2 Q-latch, allowing users to secure or loosen an M.2 drive with just their fingertips.

  1. Hi im a person who is interested in pc building just one question does four M.2 slots mean that it will be compatible with the new RTX 4000 series coming?

    Reply
    • Hi Seth, no. The M.2 slots don’t mean anything when it comes to the compatibility of the graphics card.

      It doesn’t matter if the motherboard has 1 or 2, 3 or zero M.2 slots.
      As long as it has a PCIe x16 slot, most graphics cards will be compatible.
      Although, the latest motherboards these days do have at least 2 or more M.2 slots for SSD.
      I’m just not sure if the RTX 40 series will use Gen 5 or Gen 4 PCIe. Jensen is having an online event, GTC, as I reply to you.

      If you are building the latest platform, either AMD Zen4 with AM5 X670(E) motherboard or 12th/13 Gen Intel CPU with Z690/Z790 motherboard, the RTX 40 should be compatible.
