ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME – HardwareCooking

In E-ATX format , this card is therefore intended to be the ASUS flagship on the AMD X570 chipset based on the AMD AM4 socket . Indeed, as its name suggests, the EXTREME series are still the best equipped cards. Big good point which is not all new either, we find a 2-inch OLED screen on which we can display various information. Here we will therefore have no less than five slots for SSD in M.2 format PCIe 4.0 compatible including the ROG DIMM.2 , two USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 headers for the front panel and two Thunderblot 4 ports operating at 40 Gbps. For the network part, we will have a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port via a Marvell AQtion controller and a second 2.5 Gigabit port. Of course, WiFi 6E is part of the game.
