Along with the introduction of the AMD Ryzen 7000 series processor generation, the all-new AMD X670 Series chipset-based motherboard series has also been officially launched by ASUS. With 5 optional versions including: ROG Crosshair, ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, ProArt and Prime, these products are expected to better meet the increasingly diverse high-end user needs, from gamers. , professional users or content creators.
Some common points of ASUS X670 and X670E motherboards
The AMD X670 Series chipsets are designed to maximize the power of the Ryzen 7000 series, the most advanced generation of processors built on today’s 5nm process. That means that new ASUS motherboards will all be integrated with the AM5 socket platform, supporting TDP up to 170w, allowing the system to operate more reliably in heavy tasks, running multitasking.
In addition, ASUS X670 and X670E motherboards will both support DDR5 RAM for higher transfer speeds, contributing to enhanced processing performance, and combined with optimized hardware to help enthusiasts. “Dreading” the machine can expand overclocking capabilities with the included toolkit. This is also the first time ASUS introduces a motherboard with integrated PCIe® 5.0 connectivity for higher link speed and bandwidth to be ready to connect to high-speed devices.
Most motherboard models are equipped with the latest USB4 port, USB 3.2 Gen 2 port is also integrated with many products. According to ASUS, the ‘E’ in the X670E stands for Extreme, which equates to a board that definitely has one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and at least one PCIe 5.0 M2 slot. But this will be the minimum number because many board models like ROG Strix X670E will have 2 M2 PCIe 5.0 slots or ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme will have a total of four PCIe 5.0 M2 slots.
In addition, the ASUS X670 and X670E motherboards are designed to make assembly simpler and more convenient. This solution is called ASUS Q-Design, including a Q-Release button in the PCIe slot for quick graphics card removal, or a Q-DIMM design that allows RAM to be removed, Q-Latch for locking, M.2 drive replacement becomes easy.
On the other hand, besides optimization in design, ASUS also equips these motherboards with AI Cooling II intelligent fan calibration, which helps to cool the system efficiently while keeping low noise. In addition, ASUS X670 and X670E both have built-in overclocking capabilities with applications such as PBO or Dynamic OC Switcher to help switch the performance mode of the system. The ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme and ROG Crosshair X670E Gene representatives also include the ROG True Voltician utility suite that helps overclockers have a thorough grasp of the circuitry to support the highest level of performance upgrade right from the get-go. Hardware.
ROG Crosshair series motherboards
This is a high-end motherboard line with 3 representatives: ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, ROG Crosshair X670E Gene and ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme. Among them, ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme is the “biggest” version with a monumental EATX design integrated with LED lights and a vivid AniMe Matrix screen.
This motherboard is full of power with a VRM configuration with 20 + 2 power phases SPS 110 amps to help ensure power and a set of connectors for the integrated fan and heatsink system.

Between the two onboard slots and the three additional slots provided via the ROG PCIe 5.0 M.2 card and the ROG GEN-Z.2 expansion card, the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme offers a total of five M.2 slots. – four of which support the PCIe 5.0 x4 standard.
Besides, there are 6 SATA 6 ports, USB4 and USB 3.2 ports that support Quick Charge 4+ that can provide up to 60W charging power. ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme’s connections include WiFi 6E, a 10 Gb Marvell AQtion Lan port, and a SupremeFX 7.1 surround sound solution with built-in amplifiers and op-amps.
ROG Crosshair X670E Gene has a smaller design than just microATX, with only one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and DDR5 RAM. Besides, Gene is equipped with two PCIe 5.0 standard M2 slots and one PCIe 4.0 standard M2 slot for data storage.
Meanwhile, ROG Crosshair X670E Hero is aimed at gamers or high-performance professional users with the connections and design quite similar to its brothers. This board has an integrated power supply VRM with 18 + 2-phase 110 amp SPS power, with 2 PCIe 5.0 x16 slots, three PCIe 5.0 slots, and two PCIe 4.0 slots. The remaining connections are similar to his two seniors. ROG Crosshair X670E Hero is considered a lightweight shortened version of the X670E Extreme.
ROG Strix series motherboards
ROG Strix motherboards retain key elements of the design and performance of the Crosshair series while omitting specialized features that the average user may not really need. This product line has 4 versions, of which the ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi version is equipped with two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and an external PCIe Slot Q-Release button, integrated with a large heatsink system.
Two versions of ROG Strix X670E-F / X670E-A Gaming WiFi are more compact with only one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, four M.2 slots on board (two for PCIe 5.0 and two for PCIe 4.0). ), support WiFi 6E, DDR5 and Thunderbolt connector (USB4) with two different colors and styles suitable for many audiences.
As for the ROG Strix X670E-I Gaming WiFi version, it has a compact Mini-ITX design with a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, a pair of DDR5 DIMM ram slots, and two M.2 slots – one under PCIe 5.0 and one PCIe 4.0 slot.
