EVGA Intel Core-X X299 MICRO ATX Extreme Motherboard
The X299 platform supports the newest Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors. EVGA X299 motherboards further refine high-performance with multiple options for all the latest SSD options with support for U.2, M.2 and PCI-E drives and is Intel® Optane™ Memory Ready – a revolutionary higher-density memory interface, based on 3D XPoint Technology, delivers a new generation of SSDs designed to obliterate loading times for gamers. However, the X299 platform also supports all the features you’ve come to expect from EVGA, including up to 64GBs of Quad-Channel DDR4 memory up to 3600MHz+ for Skylake-X, and 4133MHz+ for Kaby Lake-X (OC), Gigabit-NIC support, USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C support, an updated UEFI\BIOS GUI, PWM fan control and a variety of SATA options to fit everyone’s needs. The X299 MICRO is built with a 8-layer PCB, featuring a CPU socket with 150% higher Gold content powered by an Advanced 12-phase Digital VRM (10 Phase VCore, 2 Phase Memory PWM), providing industry-leading stability for all your applications.
Furthermore, this board is designed not ONLY for overclockers, but also for gamers with NVIDIA® 2-Way SLI Support without the need for PLX chips, blazing-fast networking from an Intel i219 and a 802.11AC Dual Band WiFi, M.2 Key-M, U.2, 6 SATA 3/6g and much more! Big power in a small form factor, size is NOT a sacrifice for the EVGA X299 Micro!
