Asus and Republic of Gamers have recently announced a brand-new lineup of AM4-socket motherboards designed to maximize the potential of the latest AMD Ryzen processors. Aptly named the Crosshair VI Hero and ASUS Prime X370-Pro, B350-Plus and B350M-A, these motherboards are all loaded with features that enable users to achieve the perfect balance between overclocking and cooling optimized for AMD’s powerful new CPU offerings.
As we recently featured, Asus has been heralding a new era of PC DIY with the use of multiple customization options, including Asus Aura Sync and the capability of 3D-printing designs that make it easy for users to print and fit their own custom parts to improve both aesthetics and performance. I’m no motherboard expert but these things look amazing! Check out the motherboard images below!
The Crosshair VI Hero is the latest high-performance gaming motherboard from the ROG stable which embraces the growing trend for customization. Asus and ROG have become the world’s first motherboard brand to support 3D-printed components, allowing users to quickly add cable covers, an M.2 fan holder as well as other accessories like a 2-way SLI bridge cover, fan grille, ROG-font letters and all sizes of cable combs, adding personality to every build, ensuring that no two builds are exactly alike.
The ASUS Prime X370-Pro, B350-Plus and B350M-A line represent the next evolution of the ASUS motherboard, emphasizing ultra-fast connectivity with an M.2 slot to tap into 32Gbps of PCI Express bandwidth, and USB 3.1 Type-A and reversible Type-C front-panel connector. In particular, the Prime X370-Pro also includes ASUS SLI HB Bridge (2-Way-M), a quick-to-fit expansion card that doubles the available transfer bandwidth to provide silky-smooth surround gaming which is compatible with NVIDIA Titan X, GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards.
Not to be left out, the Aura Sync technology is the world’s first motherboard-RGB-synchronization technology that delivers distinctive light shows across Aura Sync-capable motherboards, graphics cards and peripherals all controlled via the simple and intuitive Aura app. It also features an all-new Music mode that allows the pulsing of synchronized LEDs in time to the user’s favorite tunes.
