Every day, the full launch of AMD’s next-generation AM5 platform is getting closer. To date, we’ve announced the flagship ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard and a selection of boards from ROG, ROG Strix and TUF Gaming. Now, we’re ready to introduce two new ROG boards for your next space-saving build: the MicroATX ROG Crosshair X670E Gene and the Mini-ITX ROG Strix X670E-I Gaming WiFi.
But that’s not all. The combination of PCIe 5.0, DDR5, and Ryzen CPUs together for the first time should make all kinds of creators, hobbyists, and enthusiasts of all kinds head over heels. That’s why we’re excited to also announce our new ProArt and Prime motherboards—no matter what your area of expertise, we’ve got a solid foundation for AMD Ryzen builds that will take your work to the next level.
Return to (smaller) form.
You might say that MicroATX inhabits the Goldilocks zone of motherboard size—not too big, not too small. For gamers who don’t need a second PCIe x16 slot, the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene delivers high-end performance, an incredible feature set and the signature ROG aesthetic in a mid-sized MicroATX form factor.
The gleaming black and white ROG logo on the integrated I/O shield and the pixelated Fearless Eye icon on the chipset’s heatsink signify your allegiance to the Republic of Gamers. RGB LED accents on the VRM heatsink, customizable with Aura Sync, provide a splash of color on a board that otherwise makes a statement with its dark tones and angular accents.
The next generation X670E platform gives us the opportunity to bring your gaming experience to the fifth power with PCIe 5.0 and DDR5. Its PCIe 5.0 x16 slot is ready for today’s and tomorrow’s fastest graphics, and its support for DDR5 lets you enjoy the massive bandwidth, sizzling new speeds, and incredible power efficiency offered by next-generation DDR5 RAM. Between the onboard slots and the ROG Gen-Z.2 card, Gene offers two PCIe 5.0 M.2 slots and one PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot, giving you enough elbow room to build a fast and extensive gaming library—and expand it on the road raya And, of course, this motherboard is built for the most powerful next-generation AMD Ryzen CPUs with its robust power solution with 16+2 combined power stages rated for 110A.
Gene’s wide range of connection options checks all your boxes for a top-tier motherboard. Access to the newly opened 6GHz band via the latest WiFi 6E radio? Check. Intel 2.5Gb Ethernet for seamless networking? Check. A pair of USB4 ports on the rear I/O, a header for a front-panel USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port and support for Quick Charge 4+? Check, check, and check.
Our ultimate small form factor motherboard
The MicroATX build is satisfyingly compact, but if you want your next console-killer PC build to rival the size of today’s consoles while crushing them in performance, the ROG Strix X670E-I Gaming WiFi Mini-ITX motherboard is ideal.
The ROG Strix X670E-I may seem very small for what it offers: a complete platform for next-generation gaming builds. You’ll find a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot primed and ready for advanced graphics cards, a pair of DDR5 DIMM slots and two M.2 slots, one wired for PCIe 5.0 and one wired for PCIe 4.0.
Innovative design elements ensure you get the performance and features you need, even when you’re building within the tight confines of a Mini-ITX case. The I/O shield is pre-installed for easier installation and a neater fit around the rear ports. A single heatsink cools the PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot and the chipset simultaneously, and VRM temperatures are aided by a large backplate, which uses thermal pads to transfer heat from critical decoupling capacitors. The space-saving ROG FPS-II card gives you easy access to front-panel headers, two SATA ports, essential headers for clearing CMOS and enabling CPU overvoltage, and a PCIe mode switch for legacy expansion cards.
It’s the all-new ROG Strix Hive that really sets the ROG Strix X670E-I motherboard apart from the competition, though. This external control interface addresses the common challenges PC builders face when putting together a compact Mini-ITX machine—and goes one step further by putting the motherboard’s gaming features at your fingertips.
The Mini-ITX form factor doesn’t provide much room for high-end audio solutions, so we (literally) thought outside the box. The Hive houses top-of-the-line audio hardware—an ALC4050 codec and an ESS Saber 9260Q DAC, to be exact. A headset jack and one Microphone jack with 3.5 mm optical S/PDIF output provide pristine audio, while an integrated volume knob keeps you in control.
Premium audio isn’t the only trick the ROG Strix Hive has going for it. It offers a convenient USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C® ports that make it easy to connect external storage and peripherals. It includes our intuitive Q-LED array so you can quickly diagnose build problems. The EZ Mode PBO button lets you activate a fine-tuned PBO profile in your OS in real time—without entering the BIOS. And you’ll also find a physical Flexkey button and BIOS Flashback. Building, updating and troubleshooting Mini-ITX PCs has never been easier.
The power of creation
Great connectivity, plenty of high-speed storage options and professional styling distinguish our line of ProArt motherboards. The ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi takes all those elements and brings them to the next generation.
It starts with a sophisticated style rooted in clean lines, graceful angles and precise symmetry. The unobtrusive color gives this ProArt board a timeless look that never goes out of style, whether you’re building a PC for your home office, set or to share work with clients. Gold accents on the integrated I/O shield and chipset heat shield add a touch of luxury and refinement.
Does your creative workflow scale with a high-end memory kit? WiFi ProArt X670E-Creator will speed up your work with huge bandwidth, lightning-fast speed and incredible power efficiency offered by next-generation DDR5 RAM. With data rates 50% faster than previous generation DDR4 memory, DDR5 launches a new level of performance, and this motherboard offers a variety of hardware and firmware optimizations that allow users to overclock capable kits to the absolute limit.
With PCIe 5.0 connectivity, the ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi gives you access to the fastest next-generation SSDs and GPUs. This motherboard has not just one, but two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots. Since many creative endeavors make the most of the fastest transfer speeds they can get, we equipped this board with four onboard M.2 slots, two of which are wired for PCIe 5.0.
You’ll also find a comprehensive selection of high-speed ports ready to connect your full creative workstation. With twice the speed of PCIe 4.0 links, the new PCIe 5.0 standard gives us the bandwidth to adorn this board with a pair of USB4® ports on the rear I/O panel. Flexible front-panel connectivity is essential for many workflows, so the ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi offers a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 front-panel connector with support for Quick Charge 4+. Be sure to pair it with a case that features a front-panel USB Type-C port so you can have easy access to 60W charging.*
An incredible range of options round out this board’s feature set. With a compatible router, the WiFi 6E radio lets you tap into the newly opened 6GHz spectrum in select areas for truly unhindered wireless connectivity. Intel 2.5G Ethernet provides a strong and reliable wired network, while the Marvell AQtion 10G Ethernet port opens up more options, such as connecting to super-fast network-attached storage.
A new frontier ASUS Prime
Looking for a simple motherboard that offers the features, reliable performance and unobtrusive design you need, all at an affordable price? Our ASUS Prime lineup has what you’re looking for.
We offer a trio of Prime boards for the new AMD platform. At the top of the heap sits the WiFi Prime X670E-Pro. With its support for DDR5, PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and PCIe 5.0 M.2 slots, it’s a cost-effective choice for anyone building a next-generation PC. WiFi 6E, a Realtek 2.5Gb Ethernet port and a Thunderbolt 4 header all add to its already impressive value proposition. And that’s before you consider its lineup of DIY-friendly features. A pre-installed I/O shield streamlines the installation process, it features our PCIe Slot Q-Release button that takes the hassle out of removing a graphics card, and its Q-LED diagnostic array takes the guesswork out of troubleshooting.
The amazing transfer speeds offered by PCIe 5.0 SSDs make all the difference in many workloads, but it’s probably not a must-have feature on your AM5 motherboard shopping list. We designed WiFi Prime X670-P and Prime X670-P just for you. These boards get the job done with their DDR5 support and offer enough space for storage with their three onboard M.2 slots. Thunderbolt 4 headers allow you to provide a flexible high-speed front panel port in a compatible case. If onboard wireless networking is a must, get the Prime X670-P WiFi, which offers WiFi 6 connectivity. If you’re happy with wired networking, go for the similar Prime X670-P.
