ASUS launched their Crosshair VI Hero earlier this year when AMD launched their new Ryzen processors, but now the company has unleashed their first ROG motherboard ready for Ryzen CPUs.




The new ROG Crosshair VI Extreme is a new enthusiast motherboard ready for Ryzen CPUs, enthusiasts, and gamers alike who want the very best from ASUS. ASUS includes their Aura Sync RGB LED technology, dual PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for SLI/CF setups, and even a third x16 slot for CrossFire rigs (as long as your cards are dual-slot).


There's also USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity with Type-C and Type-A ports, GbE connectivity, and an upgraded 2x2 antenna for 802.11ac Wi-Fi. ASUS includes their latest SupremeFX S1220 codec teamed with the ESS Sabre DAC that provides great quality sound all from your motherboard.


Best of all, ASUS isn't charging you a kidney for the Crosshair VI Extreme, which is priced at just $349. The new motherboard will be available in the US starting next month.
