At AMD’s Meet the Experts event, ASUS detailed their upcoming ROG Crosshair X670E Hero motherboard and well as more details on the Crosshair X670E Extreme, which they revealed at Computex. We finally get a look at the rear I/O of the X670E Extreme.
Both of these boards will feature two USB4 ports which will support DisplayPort Alt mode, two USB-C ports (1x USB 3.2 gen 2, 1x USB 3.2 gen 2×2), and seven USB-A ports. The Extreme will get 10 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet, while the Hero will only get 2.5 Gbps Ethernet, but it also will have an HDMI output. Both boards will also have full audio support, WiFi 6E, and clear CMOS and BIOS flashback buttons.
Moving along to the Hero board it has two PCIe x16 slots and a single PCIe x1 slot. There are four M.2 NVMe slots for your SSDs and a PCIe 5.0 riser card for an additional drive. On the front edge of the board there are six SATA 6GB/s ports and a USB 3.2 gen 2×2 Type-C header that supports 60 W USB PD and Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+. The Extreme board boasts a 22 phase power design, while the Hero board is only 18 phase. Both boards will have the same 110 Ampere power stages.
