ASUS 5-Way Optimisation makes your workstation smart. One click takes care of complex tuning, dynamically optimising essential aspects of the system to provide overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
CPU Performance Boost
Unleash your workstation's full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking parameters for optimal performance.
All-Round Energy Efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimises power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode – a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Flexible Cooling Controls for Air or Liquid
With WS X299 PRO, you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers – all via Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum – keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Precise Digital Power Control
Digi+ delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
App-Specific Optimisation for Professionals & Gamers
Whether you're a professional content creator or gaming enthusiast, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo Core app. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritise network data and optimise audio settings at app level – so your WS X299 PRO system is perfectly optimised for whatever you're doing.
Make Your Memory Go Faster
With optimised trace paths for time-aligned signaling and minimal crosstalk, third-generation ASUS T-Topology offers enhanced memory stability and compatibility, allowing support for memory speeds of DDR4-4133MHz and beyond.
ASUS PRO Clock II Technology
WS X299 PRO includes a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and BCLK overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from the Intel® Core™ X-series processors.
With support for both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ 2/3-WAY configurations, WS X299 PRO enables multi-GPU setups so you can harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies to drive games at 4K and beyond.
Flexible Cooling Controls
WS X299 PRO features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
Ultra-Efficient VRM Heatsink
Designed for the powerful Intel Core X-series processor with up to 18 cores, WS X299 PRO features a capable thermal design to ensure maximum performance with no CPU throttling. Consisting of an ultra-efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin array design that maximises surface area for heat dissipation, plus two additional heatsinks and a connecting heatpipe to further increase cooling performance, this innovative thermal design ensures WS X299 PRO is always ready to handle any task, no matter how demanding.
Dual Onboard M.2 & M.2 Heatsink
WS X299 PRO features dual onboard M.2 slots, each operating at X4 PCI Express 3.0 to provide an abundant 32Gbps of bandwidth. Both slots sit below the X299 chipset and are covered by a heatsink that reduces drive temps by as much as 20°C, ensuring peak performance under all scenarios.
Join the NVMe Revolution
The revolutionary specification that lets your SSDs scream at top speed. Simply attach your choice of drive and experience data-transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps — and free up a PCIe slot for another expansion card.
Intel Optane memory
Intel® Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by WS X299 PRO. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
Unleash the WS X299 PRO Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) with the addition of an ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card*, which allows you to attach up to four PCIe® 3.0 x16 M.2 drives — for a total bandwidth of up to 128Gbps. PCH-based RAID arrays are bottlenecked by the 32Gbps limit of the DMI bus. VROC obliterates that limit by allowing you to utilise CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array that can transfer data at insane speeds.
USB 3.1 Gen 2 Front-Panel Connector
WS X299 PRO's front panel USB 3.1 connector is ready for next-gen PC cases and devices.
USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A™ and reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.
Dual Intel® Server-Class Gigabit LAN
For more reliable networking, WS X299 PRO features the latest server-class dual Intel® Gigabit LAN ensuring lower CPU utilisation and temperatures outstanding performance as well as better support for diverse operating systems. The dual Ethernet ports also support teaming which combines the network links to provide higher throughput or redundancy in case of failure.
intel® Core™ X-Series Processors for LGA 2066 Socket
Intel Core X-series processors (6-core and above): 4-channel (8-DIMM), 44/28 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. Intel Core X-series processors (4 core): 2-channel (4-DIMM), 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes.
Intel® X299 Chipset
The Intel X299 chipset supports LGA 2066-socket Intel Core X-series processors. It provides improved performance by utilising serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, X299 provides a maximum 10 USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, 8 SATA 6Gbps ports and 32Gbps M.2 support for faster data retrieval.
• Industry-Leading Cooling Options: Comprehensive controls for fans and water pumps, via Fan Xpert 4 software or the acclaimed ASUS UEFI.
