Performance

4-Way SLI™/4-Way CrossFire™ Multi-Graphics
Multi-graphics configurations offer better graphics performance for applications which demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.

Dual PLX8747 Chips
Dual PLX chips increase the number of available PCIe lanes to enable 4-way GPU configurations, X299-WU8 also features multiple heatsinks for PLX to provide absolute maximum performance.

NVIDIA® QUADRO® Professional Graphics Supports
NVIDIA® QUADRO® 3D Workstation Professional Graphics Solutions are designed and built specifically for artists, designers, and engineers, NVIDIA Quadro GPUs power more than 100 professional applications across a broad range of industries. Professionals trust them to enable their best work using applications such as Adobe® Creative Cloud, Avid Media Composer, Autodesk Suites, Dassault Systemes, CATIA and SOLIDWORKS, Siemens NX, PTC Creo, and many more.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4000MHz and Beyond
GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4000MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their GIGABYTE motherboard.

What is XMP?
DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.

Performance Fuelled by Optane
The GIGABYTE X299 Platform is the first enthusiast platform that supports Intel’s latest Optane technology. Optane fuels storage performance by acting as a cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional mechanical drives.

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!
GIGABYTE partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with GIGABYTE Motherboards. GIGABYTE has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a GIGABYTE built system.


Connectivity

Dual Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Software
• cFosSpeed helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times.
• Support Windows Server O/S.
• Teaming Features:
- Fault Tolerance.
- Link Aggregation.
- Load Balancing.


Cooling

Powerful Heatsink Design
An efficient thermal cooling design to provide absolute maximum performance. X299-WU8 cover with an additional heat sink array for dual PLX chips to ensure optimal cooling and system stability.

Smart Fan 5
With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.

• 9 Temperature Sensors.
• 8 Fan/Water Pump Connectors.
• Interoperable Fans and Sensors.
• Intuitive UI for Fan Control.

Fan Stop
Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.

Hybrid Fan Header
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—giving you absolute mastery over your PC.

All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.

Hybrid Fan Headers Support:
• Closed Loop Watercooling.
• CPU Fans.
• System Fans.
• Watercooling Pumps.
• Water Flow Sensors.

Smart Fan 5 Software
Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage scenario. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.

• Interoperable Sensors and Fans: Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).
• Fan Curve: Customize fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.

System Information Viewer
GIGABYTE System Information Viewer is a central location that gives you access to your current system status. Monitor components such as the clocks and processor, set your preferred fan speed profile, create alerts when temperatures get too high or record your system’s behaviour; these are the possibilities of the System Information Viewer.


Audio

ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp

ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio
The ALC1220 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec with up to 120dB SNR for crystal clear audio and features such as Smart Headphone Amp, 114dB SNR recording for precise voice chats and hardware decoding of DSD128, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.

Smart Headphone AMP
Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics—preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.


Lighting

RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs
With X299-WU8 Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control external LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on X299-WU8 Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
*Digital LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Digital LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.

Supports RGBW & UV Light Strips: Independently Programmable On-Board Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips
Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its colour from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colours.

When using RGB/UV LED strips, users can give their systems a fluorescent glow with the use of UV reactive liquid, neon braided cables, and acrylic paint for a wicked-looking gaming PC.

No need to worry when choosing light strips as GIGABYTE motherboards support a wide variety of RGBW/-UV light strips on the market thanks to the RGB Fusion software that allows users to redefine the pin location for the R/G/B Signal.

RGBW Pin Header Support True White and RGB/UV LED Strips

RGB/UV Colour
RGB/UV light strips can illuminate your PC with a fluorescent glow. With UV reactive cables, paint or liquid your PC can radiate with a luminous glow.

True White Colour
RGBW light strips can produce a pure white colour instead of mixing R/G/B to produce an inaccurate white.

Richer Colour
With dedicated white LEDs, light strips can produce a richer and brighter colour on the colour scale.

RGB Calibration
Different light strips sometimes have different RGB pin definitions, RGB Fusion software can relocate each pin location for the best compatibility.
