Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) Review - PCSTATS.com Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) Review
Fri, May 18 2018 | 3:45PM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

We received our sample of the Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi as part of the press kit that AMD delivered for the launch of Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X CPUs. As we expected, the Crosshair VII Hero is a high end motherboard that is loaded with overclocking features and while it looks and feels really solid, our initial testing suggested that performance was nothing special. This was pretty much the opposite of what we expected from the ROG brand, however it seemed unlikely Asus had made a fundamental error with the design so we decided to hold off with our review until Asus had the chance to update the BIOS as that can make a massive difference to the way a motherboard behaves. In the intervening period Asus has issued a steady stream of updates including a BIOS that supports a new version of AGESA, which is the sort of thing we expect, and then Asus sent over a Performance BIOS that looked very interesting.
