    The Power of AMD

     

    AMD X570 chipset

    The AMD X570 chipset delivers outstanding overclocking capabilities for the latest AMD AM4 socket for 3rd and 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen /2nd and 1st Gen AMD Ryzen with Radeon Vega Graphics Processors. It is optimized for multiple GPU configurations, including NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX. It also supports x16 PCI Express 4.0/3.0 lanes and provides 10Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and 6 Gb/s SATA ports for faster data retrieval.

     

     

     

     

    AMD AM4 Socket for 3rd and 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen / 2nd and 1st Gen AMD Ryzen with Radeon Vega Graphics Processors

    The high-performance 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors are based on the next-gen 7nm Zen architecture and support up to 16 processor cores. AMD AM4-socket processors feature du

    Optimal Performance

     

    Boosted Performance, No Bottlenecks

    ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes equipped with an optimized power-design layout and all the cooling headers you need to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling. 

     

     

     

     

    ROG Power Solution

    The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Hero's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

     

     

     

     

    Memory

    Infused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, Optimem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and operate at higher frequencies. Stack the Hero with your favorite modules and maximize Matisse throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance infinity fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.

     

     

     

     

    Cooler by Design

    ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

     

    Multiple temperature sources

    • Water pump+
    • 4-pin PWM/DC fan
    • Smart protection
    • ROG Water-Cooling Zone
    • AIO pump

     

     

     

     

    Heatsinks

    Heatsinks are extremely important for motherboards, as they absorb heat from critical areas to ensure components do not stagger due to overheating. With VRM, chipset and M.2 heatsinks, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ensures efficient and stable operation even when pushed hard.

     

     

     

     

    Active Chipset Heatsink Design

    PCle 4.0 provides twice the bandwidth for data flowing through the chipset, which creates more heat than the previous generation.

    The Hero features an actively cooled heatsink to prevent throttling during sustained transfers.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Optimization 

     

    Uncomplicatedd System Tuning

    ROG gives you powerful tools that make optimizing your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organized into intuitive categories that provide the ability to tweak every aspect of your system. 

     

     

     

     

    Differential Sensing

    Conventional motherboards ues single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Hero features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.

     

     

     

     

    5-Way Optimisation  

    AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your system. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.

     

     

     

     

    CPU-Performance Boost

    The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent onboard micro-controller that provides an array of system-tuning features, including the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats and adjust overclocking parameters.
