ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR X670E EXTREME Motherboard Review
Peter Donnell / 1 month ago
There are motherboards, and then there are motherboards… if you know what I mean. The ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR X670E EXTREME is in a special league of super-expensive feature-packed unicorn levels of insanity that few of us ever get to enjoy in our personal PCs. Certainly, it’s more expensive than any motherboard I’ve ever put into my own PC at home. We’re talking very little change from £1000 right here. If that’s enough to make your blood run cold, it’s best you found out now, rather than after you’ve fallen in love with it.
ROG CROSSHAIR X670E EXTREME
This motherboard likely has more features than I could ever really justify on the scale of the reviews we commit to here at eTeknix. It’s built for class-leading connectivity, so if you’re building a fast gaming PC, you can likely start much further down the ASUS range. If you’re building a rig that’s going to use huge amounts of RAM, storage, networking and external devices, and be pushing the latest flagship CPUs to their absolute limits 24/7, then read on. 20+2 110A Power Stages, DDR5 memory, two PCIe 5.0 M.2, two PCIe Gen 5 x16, 10 Gbps Ethernet, and dual USB4 Type-C 40 Gbps is just the start of what it has to offer, and honestly, if you’re not going to use ALL of that in your build, this motherboard isn’t for you, as those extra features (especially that some of them are doubled up), add to the overall price significantly.
What ASUS Had To Say
