ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero Motherboard Packaging Teased

Leaks surrounding motherboards based on AMD's upcoming X470 chipset, which will accompany its first-wave of Ryzen 2000-series "Pinnacle Ridge" processors, are on the rise. We now see a fairly clear picture of the retail packaging of ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Crosshair VII Hero, specifically its "WiFi" sub-variant that includes a WLAN card. This board surfaced on benchmark database listings. There's no product image on the box, but the logos make things pretty cut and dry - AMD X470 chipset, socket AM4, support for NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFire; ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED management, and an unchanged Ryzen logo. We have confirmation of ASUS readying at least two ROG motherboards based on the X470 so far - the Crosshair VII Hero, and the Strix X470-F. It remains to be seen if the chipset also gets the company's coveted ROG "Extreme" treatment.

I also hope they bring over the 90 degree ATX24 plug from Crosshair VI Extreme to Crosshair VII Hero and hopefully the Extreme variant sometime to follow in August.

Well it's good to see manufacturers having more lead time this time around to prepare their boards compared to last years Ryzen launch wich was a worst case scenario. And 400 series board almost beat Intel's 300 series (except Z370) to the market despite launching ~8 months later. Get your sh*t together Intel.
