ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO WiFi X570 Gaming Motherboard


The Crosshair VIII Hero

Featuring support for 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ CPUs, on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Realtek® 2.5 Gbps LAN and PCIe 4.0, coupled with an overhauled metallic design and loaded with renowned ROG features, it's the perfect foundation for your AMD Ryzen rig.


Boosted Performance, No Bottlenecks

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes equipped with an optimised 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.


Power Design That Bucks Trends

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.
Robust power delivery starts at the component level. Every aspect of the ROG Crosshair VIII Hero's VRM is generously over-specified for the task.
8-Pin ProCool II Power Connectors: ProCool II connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.
PowIRstage® MOSFETs: The VRM is comprised of 16 IR3555 PowIRstages, each rated to handle 60 amps.
Microfine Alloy Chokes: Each PowIRstage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
10K Japanese-Made Black Metallic Capacitors: Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.


Power Architecture

Conventional motherboard design practices place primary focus on component specs without implementing circuit topologies that provide optimal transient response. The Hero bucks industry trends by utilising teamed PowIRstages to double the burst current of each phase and rapidly respond to load changes.


Uncomplicated System Tuning

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


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 Hero features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.


Performance Level Up

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.
All-Around Energy Efficiency: With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimises power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Flexible Cooling Controls for Air or Liquid: Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Precise Digital Power Control: The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
Turbo App: AMD's processors feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo app makes use of this feature by letting you assign applications to specific processor cores, prioritising computing power where it's needed most.


Ultrafast Connection

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. With the latest ultrafast networking, including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11x) and dual Ethernet with one 2.5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero removes all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimising lag and providing an overall smoother experience. Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximise the speed of your SSD for faster load times, and SupremeFX on-board audio provides superb sound, while saving a PCIe slot.


WiFi 6 (AX200)

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes with on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) support, offering ultrafast networking speeds, improved network capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments for exceptional online gaming experiences with the convenience of a wireless connection.


Realtek 2.5G LAN

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the latest Intel® 2.5G Ethernet that offers a huge speed boost for local networking, such as transferring files between PCs or network-attached storage (NAS) devices. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.


Intel Ethernet

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.


SupremeFX

Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilising the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.


Unthrottled Transfer Speed

Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot support up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.


AMD StoreMI

AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for better system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It combines SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.


ASUS Node Connector

ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that allow ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.


The Power to Personalise

ROG provides a range of intuitive software that enables easy control of your advanced gaming hardware and ensures seamless component compatibility. From RGB lighting, networking and audio to storage optimisation and more, ROG gives you the power to personalise your system just the way you want.


GameFirst V Network Control
