ROG X670E Crosshair Extreme Rocks All-New Gen 5 M.2 SSD Riser Card

thanks to the tweet @momomo_us, We take a first closer look at Asus’ brand new ROG Gen-Z.2 M.2 riser card that comes with the new AM5 ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme (opens in new tab) motherboard. What makes the new card special is the added support for PCIe Gen 5 SSDs.

Gen-Z.2 is a proprietary PCIe card designed to be inserted into supported Asus motherboards. The card features two M.2 slots on each side, one supporting Gen 4 speeds and one supporting Gen 5 speeds. Both slots support SSDs up to 110mm in length, but the Gen 5 slot features its own dedicated passive heatsink cooler to aid cooling. Gen 5 SSDs consume more power.
