Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero – First Unboxing Video Surfaced Ahead

A couple of days ago, a new and still very fresh YouTube channel “KWASTEK”, uploaded the very first unboxing video of the new Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero AM4 motherboard. We already knew that a certain Crosshair VI Hero is coming since Asus already revealed this before. But, surprisingly this was the first unboxing video uploaded ahead from the usual Tech or PC channel, like Linus and etc. Sean mentioned that he wasn’t breaking any NDA when he uploaded the video. Anyway check out his Crosshair VI Hero AM4 unboxing video below.

Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero Unboxing

Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero Features and Specs

Based on the video we have seen and some information before, here are some partial features and specifications we can share to you about the Crosshair VI Hero. The Crosshair VI Hero is just one of the socket AM4 motherboards that the company will be releasing; featuring X370 chipset designed for AMD Ryzen processors. The board features ROG water cooling zone, Aura Sync RGB LED, SupremeFX Audio, Asus’ 5-way optimization and 1 click system OC, and Intel Gigabit Ethernet with LANGuard and GameFirst technology. The AM4 motherboard will also feature socket M.2 for NVMe PCIe SSDs and USB 3.1 both Type-A and Type-C ports.

There’s a number of USB ports at the rear I/O section, there’s also an M.2 E-Key for WiFi card, two PCIe 3.0 x16 with SafeSlots, PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, 8x SATA 6G ports, M.2 SSD slot, Intel I211-AT GbE with ROG GameFirst IV and Anti-sure LanGuard, and SupremeFX Audio with SupremeFX S1220 CODEC and ES9023P High Definition DAC.

Aesthetically speaking, the Asus Crosshair VI Hero, looks very similar with the ROG Maximum IX Hero, its Intel counterpart. No other details were revealed, but the new AMD Ryzen is expected to be officially released this coming February 28 or March 2. More or less the AM4 motherboards will be launched on those same dates or a few days ahead, depending on the motherboard manufacturer. As for pricing, we don’t know yet how much the Asus Crosshair VI Hero would cost us, but the Maximus IX Hero is currently priced at around $230 USD. Based on its Z270 counterpart, the Crosshair VI Hero may be priced at around $200-ish price range.
