Found a good write up on the new Maximus Vi Hero.
Quote:
The ASUS ROG series is know for being the best of the best, and it's certainly and accurate statement. The drawback with the ASUS ROG motherboards that has prevented the masses from picking one up is the cost. Traditionally motherboards like the ASUS Maximus Extreme and Formula carry a pretty steep price. While this is still the case with the latest Intel Z87 motherboards, ASUS is launching a much more budget friendly ATX motherboard with the Republic of Gamers tags. The ASUS ROG Maximus Hero is a full featured Intel LGA1150 Z87 motherboard that will retail for only $229.00. Some will argue that this is still an expensive motherboard, when compared to the Maximus VI Extreme which will retail for $399.00. $229.00 for the Maximus VI Hero will certainly provided more end users to put the ROG board into their systems.

Looks like a great option if they try to over price the Formula.
