ASUS launches AMD AM4 motherboards

AMD IS BACK! With so much positive buzz about Ryzen, it’s worth covering the company again (sorry AMD…). With that it’s great to see boards from ASUS supporting the platform; even if they are more “performace” oriented than I’d use in a HTPC. Hopefully we’ll see some of those soon as well.

ASUS Launches New AMD AM4 Series Motherboards

— ASUS Prime Series and ROG Crosshair VI Hero motherboards feature innovative customizations to extract maximum performance from AMD Ryzen processors —

Fremont, CA (March 2, 2017) — ASUS today announced a brand-new lineup of AM4-socket motherboards designed to maximize the potential of the latest AMD® Ryzen™ processors. The exciting new motherboards include Republic of Gamers (ROG) Crosshair VI Hero and ASUS Prime X370-Pro, B350-Plus and B350M-A, all loaded with exclusive technologies to enable users to achieve the perfect balance between overclocking and cooling to extract every ounce of gaming performance from AMD’s powerful new CPUs.

The all-new ASUS ROG and ASUS AM4-socket motherboards offer multiple customization and personalization options, heralding a new step for PC DIY enthusiasts. These include ASUS Aura Sync, the world’s first motherboard-synced RGB illumination technology for synchronization with Aura Sync-enabled devices, and 3D-printing-friendly designs that make it easy for users to print and fit their own custom parts to improve both aesthetics and performance. Crosshair VI Hero even offers backward compatibility with existing AM3 coolers, enabling users to upgrade easily from their current AM3 platform.

Commenting on the new AM4-socket motherboards Joe Hsieh, ASUS Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Motherboard Business Unit said: “For years ASUS has had a consistent and evolving relationship with AMD. This partnership is based on leveraging each other’s leading technological capabilities to enable an outstanding user experience on the AMD platform. For this generation we’ve innovated in the field of customization, adding personalization options like 3D printing and Aura Sync RGB lighting, so users will never again have to stare into a drab, unexciting computer case. It’s time for users to fully unleash their imaginations and the power of AMD Ryzen processors — and the blazing overclocking performance of a new ASUS ROG Crosshair Series or Prime Series motherboard is the perfect way to do just that!”
