The ROG Crosshair X670E Gene features a sixteen-pack power solution specifically grown to handle the multi-threaded muscle of AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors. Combined with a streamlined DDR5 layout, this nimble powerhouse dishes out hyperspeed performance. And ROG makes it as easy to access its natural edge through a suite of unique software and firmware technologies catering to beginners and veterans alike.
ROG OVERCLOCKING TECHNOLOGIES
Take Ryzen beyond the already impressive sum of its parts. Dynamic OC Switcher and Core Flex create additional frequency waypoints for single and multi-threaded workloads, allowing Ryzen to break boundaries and achieve peak performance in all games and apps.
TEAMED POWER ARCHITECTURE
Today's CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. With the Crosshair X670E lineup, you can extract all of the potential out of your DDR5 modules, regardless of if they're from an extreme-speed kit or an entry-level set that would otherwise be locked.
Meeting Ryzen thermal demands head-on, the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene wields hefty VRM, chipset, and M.2 heatsinks to keep everything running at top performance. To aid in airflow, the Gene boasts copious fan header support—a blessing for building in tight spaces. Once the rig is assembled, ROG tools make it easy to monitor and control fan speeds, and with the improved AI Cooling II utility, balancing system acoustics is better than ever.
COOLER BY DESIGN
The ROG Crosshair X670E Gene features an upgraded cooling solution.
VRM heatsinks and heatpipe
A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.
M.2 heatsink and backplate
Dedicated heatsinks on the front and back of the M.2 slot ensure that your drive delivers peak performance, even if airflow is restricted.
High-conductivity thermal pads
A high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink. For future maintenance, a replacement thermal pad can also be found in the package.
A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from both chipsets to maintain optimum operating temperature.
An extensive array of headers line the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene for precise cooling control and monitoring.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Gene bears the same mounting hole alignment as AM4 platforms, so it is backward compatible with many existing coolers, including all AIO offerings from ASUS and ROG.
Vast and fast. With PCIe 5.0 laced across the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene, loading and transfer times are nearly instantaneous. Plentiful USB lines the rear I/O, including two USB4® Type-C® ports capable of 40 GB/s speeds and 8K display output. Networking has a two-pronged attack with WiFi 6E and 2.5G LAN, and SupremeFX on-board audio keeps sound immersive and punchy.
Fully embracing the new standard, the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.
USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 TYPE-C® FRONT-PANEL CONNECTOR WITH QUICK CHARGE 4+
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60W*.
* Requires a PCIe power supply cable to be plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector.
TWO USB4® TYPE-C® PORTS
Each USB4® port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest super-speed devices and drives. External display support reaches up to 8K output if one of the ports is in use, or both can be employed for dual 4K displays.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
INTEL 2.5G ETHERNET
Onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, smooth lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
ROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software that provides superior audio. In the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene, SupremeFX features the ALC4080 codec for immersive 384 kHz resolution audio across all channels. The front-panel output is streamed through a highly integrated Savitech amplifier that’s capable of driving a wide variety of gaming headsets and high-fidelity headphones.
A wealth of intuitive tools are at your fingertips so that you can optimize system performance quickly and efficiently while still having the flexibility to tinker to your heart’s content.
AI SUITE 3
The AI Suite 3 dashboard contains a set of intuitive controls that boost CPU performance while maintaining system stability.
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING
Conventional motherboards use 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 ROG Crosshair X670E Gene features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.
The powerful core of the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene is graced by reflective plating across the board, contrasted by a dash of lighting that shines between grooves in the VRM heatsink. Sync the RGB glow with your other gear through Armoury Crate to bring out the unique personality of your build.
GROW YOUR GAMING WORLD WITH AURA SYNC
Up your game with complementary Aura Sync enhanced aesthetics, featuring preset lighting effects that can be easily synchronized across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate helps you customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. In addition, Armoury Crate’s Fan Xpert4 tool provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers.
