Asus showcases its latest X670E motherboards and new ROG Loki SFX-L 850W Platinum PSU
Asus has devoted part of its Gamescom 2022 exhibition to motherboards, as it has now prepared new Ryzen 7000-friendly X670E models for more of its various high-performance series. All of them boast DDR5-compatible and PCIe 5.0 slots, as well as Wi-Fi 6E where applicable and often even multiple USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 and USB type-C headers - the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene even has rear USB4 ports.
That same new Crosshair board is decidedly the front-runner of the bunch, and is presented as the microATX answer to the X670E Extreme. It is joined by the ROG Strix X670E-I Gaming WiFi mini-ITX, which has one of Asus' integrated LED diagnostic arrays and a pre-mounted I/O shield.
Those 2 new motherboards share the X670E Extreme's penchant for holographic branded accents all over their heatsinks and I/O shields. The Thunderbolt 4 header-equipped Prime X670E-Pro WiFi has a different look, however, and emphasizes self-builds as one of the new X670E models with a PCIe-slot Q-Release button.
The ProArt X670E-Creator WiFi, on the other hand, definitely has more of a professional look, along with a front-panel type-C port rated for up to 60W charging. On that note, Asus has also now announced that it will vary on its ROG Thor line with a Loki sibling.
It is intended for "high-performance GPUs and ITX builds", with dual ROG heatsinks, an up-to-92% rating for heat efficiency and noise reduction and a a 120mm axial cooling fan with PWM control. Asus has yet to say when these new components will become available.
