ASUS Launches ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme Motherboard | TechPowerUp
ASUS today launched the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Crosshair VIII Extreme motherboard. This would go down as the first "Extreme" tier ROG Crosshair motherboard ever, as the AMD platform was relegated to "Formula" or "Hero" tiers. Built in the E-ATX form-factor, the board is based on the AMD X570 chipset (with fanless chipset cooling), comes with out of the box support for Ryzen 5000 "Vermeer" and Ryzen 5000G "Cezanne" processors, besides all other processor generations supported by the X570. The board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX, and two 8-pin EPS; and uses an 18+2 phase CPU VRM that has 90 A power stages.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme is loaded to the brim with connectivity. Storage options include three M.2 NVMe Gen 4 slots, and six SATA 6 Gbps ports. Networking connectivity includes Wi-Fi 6E powered by an Intel controller, a 10 GbE interface driven by a Marvell AQtion controller, and a 2.5 GbE interface, from an Intel i225-V controller. USB connectivity includes 20 Gbps USB 3.2x2 ports with 60 W power delivery. The onboard audio solution is top-of-the-line, featuring a Realtek ALC4082 CODEC running alongside an ESS Sabre ES9018Q2C, and ROG Clavis USB DAC. The board is brimming with features relevant to overclockers. The company didn't reveal pricing.
This is a great looking motherboard, but I'm waiting for EVGA's new AMD motherboard.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X,  Corsair Mp600 Pro M.2 2TB, 128GB DDR4  Crosshair VIII Hero, Asus RX 6900 XT Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
