If the Strix is around $250 the Impact will be closer to $300, which is probably why the released reports of this record breaking memory over-clock so close to launch.
The website has the board on a special deal. The RRP is £444.90 or around $544.06 as of writing.

ALTERNATE has the Strix and the Impact pre-listed for £364. The Asrock X570 Phantom Gaming is already a £330+ board (but has Wifi6 and TB3).


Norwegian stores list it for the equivalent of £290-300 including 25% VAT, don't know about British VAT rules, but £360 sounds high no matter what.

The Crosshair VIII Impact is in stock(!) at Proshop.no for NOK 4190 (=£381).

I watched a Japaenese review of the Asrock X570 phantom Gaming and it seems that Asrock is still not doing ITX boards right, as they have allot of SMD parts in the keep out area on top and on bottom, especially around the mounting holes on the back of the mobo. I had this same issue with a FM2+ motherboard from them where the traditional AMD metal backplate would not fir because of a bunch of SMD capacitors in the way and I had to rig the cooler up to get it to work. So buyer beware.

Alternate has the Impact in stock, ready for dispatch, for £364 (with 20% german VAT). I can't really imagine the Strix being more expensive than the Asrock Phantom Gaming that costs £330. As you said, £290-300 would be an expactable and "reasonable" price.

Yeah, that's a shame and can break compatibility with some after market CPU coolers.

For the geek heads out there that really like knowing things down to the tiniest, most minute detail, it looks like one of the ASUS engineers published a video detailing the design and development of the Crosshair VIII Impact. He goes so far as to include some of the CAD image shots of the electronic circuit diagrams used in manufacturing the board:



Also relevant from the video:

Outlet PC has the Strix listed @ $300 though the picture is wrong.

Game PC has it listed for $300 as well. Both locations are out of stock at the moment.

Based on those figures, it looks like the Crosshair Impact will be about $350 +.

🤔 Gigabyte for $220 or Strix for $300?

Both motherboard pages for the Strix and the Impact are unavailable as of this posting which strongly leads me to believe they will be officially releasing stateside this week. Stay tuned.

Update: The pages were down through yesterday, 9/8/2019. However, as of today, 9/9/2019, the Strix's page appears to be back online with a newly added gallery. The Impact's page, on the other hand, is still offline. Release must be even closer now.

Update 2: Someone just posted some teardown photos of the Impact:
