Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Impact AMD AM4 X570 Mini-DTX gaming motherboard
Crosshair VIII IMPACT
The ROG Crosshair VIII series heralds the arrival of Impact, the compact motherboard with colossal potential. Primped and primed for latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, Crosshair VIII Impact’s Mini-DTX frame packs loads of ATX-grade features, including advanced power delivery and cooling, dual M.2, next-gen Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), and onboard SupremeFX audio. It’s the perfect choice for a small-form-factor gaming rig ready to rival full-size builds.
Impact’s unusual Mini-DTX form factor is a deliberate choice. Many Mini-ITX cases ship with enough space for a dual-slot graphics card, meaning there’s typically unused space below the bottom PCIe® slot – space that could be utilized to mount more components or enable additional features. Being marginally taller than mini-ITX allows Impact to exploit this unused space, allowing ROG engineers to squeeze in features while still fitting a large proportion of mini-ITX PC cases.
ROG Crosshair VIII Impact stacks up storage, audio, and control features onto innovative vertical daughter boards, leaving us a spare room on board to add more connectivity and engineer features normally found on ATX boards into a small-form-factor (SFF) footprint.
ROG Crosshair VIII Impact is equipped with an optimized power design and comprehensive cooling to exploit the prodigious might of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling. It also packs innovations to double up on memory and push frequencies to the max.
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.
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 comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
ROG Crosshair VIII Impact offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. This includes Intel Ethernet and the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). It also has the two M.2 slots integrated into the SO-DIMM module, plus the same SupremeFX audio codec you’ll find on ATX ROG boards.
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 optimization and more, ROG gives you the power to personalize your system just the way you want.
