AMD X570 ATX gaming motherboard with PCIe 4.0, on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), 2.5 Gbps LAN, USB 3.2, SATA, M.2, ASUS NODE and Aura Sync RGB lighting BOOSTED PERFORMANCE, NO BOTTLENECKS​ ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes equipped with an optimised power-design layout and all the cooling headers you need to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling.​ POWER DESIGN THAT BUCKS TRENDS The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Hero's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions. COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. HEATSINKS Heatsinks are extremely important for motherboards, as they absorb heat from critical areas to ensure components do not stagger due to overheating. With VRM, PCH and M.2 heatsinks, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ensures efficient and stable operation even when pushed hard. UNCOMPLICATED SYSTEM TUNING​ ROG gives you powerful tools that make optimising your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organised into intuitive categories that provide the ability to tweak every aspect of your system​. ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Hero features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.​ PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your system. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.​ ULTRAFAST CONNECTION ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. With the latest ultrafast networking, including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11x) and dual Ethernet with one 2.5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero removes all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimising lag and providing an overall smoother experience. Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximise the speed of your SSD for faster load times, and SupremeFX on-board audio provides superb sound, while saving a PCIe slot.​ SupremeFX Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilising the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset. ASUS NODE CONNECTOR​ ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that allow ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.​
