ASUS X570 Crosshair VIII Formula Preview

Wi-Fi and Lighting

The ASUS Crosshair VIII Formula is equipped with Intel Wi-Fi 6, which is based upon the 802.11ax codec but in a 2x2 format that allows for greater bandwidth if you have suitably compatible devices. Curiously the Intel specifications for this particular Wi-Fi 6 list it as 802.11ac, but ASUS list it as 802.11ax. Hopefully it's the latter, although both are still capable of saturating the bandwidth of nearly any current hardware on the market. You can even see two of the compatible ASUS routers, should you want to go all in on the Tapei company.

Looks fantastic, I'm just hoping that, Electrically at least, There isn't much of a difference between this and the Hero outside of the waterblock, OLED readout screen and extra zone lighting, As much as I like the look of this board I couldn't justify the "rumoured" price of this over the Hero.

Take with a pinch of salt but early info has this board at $699, So around €620.Quote

$330 over Hero is way too much. You can almost buy 2 Heros for the price of 1 Formula. That is insane.Quote

Agreed. Even with the included water cooling, that's badly overpriced.Quote

i would pay it when it would need no chipset cooler.


the preview i have seen are not promising when it comes to the chipset cooling.
maybe asus can do it better but the one i saw (MSI) was already semi passive. Quote
