Presented the motherboard Asus Crosshair VI Hero (Wi-Fi ac) for AMD Ryzen
Rich equipment system boards, the upper price range allows you to create a new model by simply adding or removing new accessories. So Asus did with the Crosshair VI Hero cost by adding the wireless adapter and getting «output» modification Crosshair VI Hero (Wi-Fi ac).
Built-in dual band wireless adapter operates on standard Wi-Fi 802.11 ac 2×2 scheme, which increases the theoretical bandwidth up to 867 Mbps, and support for MU-MIMO keeps the performance high even when working with multiple clients. All antennas are enclosed in an external remote unit, in a common housing. Supports Bluetooth 4.1.
Asus Crosshair VI Hero (Wi-Fi ac) is the expected friendly to overclockers, offering for the purposes of acceleration of separate clock generator, which allows to increase the basic frequency up to 158 MHz and above, and the system controller Digi+ maintains the voltage required for stability level, even when significant care beyond regular values. The layout of the memory modules are also optimized to reduce noise and interference, and several built-in sensors allow you to individually adjust the speed of each connected fan. In the power supply system consists of a miniature field effect transistors TI NexFET, Japanese capacitors with extended service life and resistance to high temperatures, and the coil of the new type with lower dissipation.
A wired network segment is represented by the Gigabit Ethernet controller Intel I211-AT and its port has enhanced protection from voltage spikes and electrostatic discharges. Audio codec SupremeFX 1220 on the basis of Realtek augmented ES9023P ESS DAC and operational amplifier TI RC4580. High-precision clock generator designed to reduce the jitter, also tract used Nichicon capacitors and gold-plated outputs.
The X370 AMD chipset supports processors for socket AM4, the total amount of DDR4 RAM support up to 64 GB when filling all four available slots. You can connect up to eight disk drives with interface SATA 6 GB/s and one SSD in slot M. 2 or SATA bus PCI-e 3.0 x4. For expansion cards there are three PCI-e x16 (2.0 or 3.0 depends on the CPU) and three PCI-e 2.0 x1. The price Board Asus Crosshair VI Hero (Wi-Fi ac) will probably get close to $300.
