ASUS sent over some pictures of their upcoming Crosshair IV Extreme Motherboard that are worth a look this Saturday morning. It looks like ASUS is nearly ready to release the ROG Crosshair IV Extreme platform. They sent over some pictures of the board although it's missing it's final cooling solution
The Crosshair IV Extreme is based on the high-end 890FX chipset from Advanced Micro Devices and, as such, supports powerful AM3 central processing units, including six-core Thuban chips. This, of course, would be expected of any Republic of Gamers platform.
The board has four DDR3 memory slots, voltage chek points, easy push buttons for tasks like turning on the system, restarting and overclocking.
The board has nine SATA ports (some of which are SATA 6.0Gbps), five PCI Express x16 slots, 7.1 channel audio and Gigabit Ethernet.
One of the ASUS-exclusive technologies that Republic of Gamers motherboards have started to be designed with is the ROG Connect. Essentially, this is a feature that allows end-users to overclock their system via Bluetooth and is present on this model as well.
The board even has the Lucid Hydra 200 chip on it!
ASUS did not disclose when this board would hit the streets or what the price would be.
