Product Overview

Next Generation 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt™ 3

Powered by Intel's own Thunderbolt controller the new Thunderbolt™ 3 protocol, which is available over two USB Type-C™ connectors on the back I/O of the GIGABYTE X299X DESIGNARE 10G, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than the previous generation of Thunderbolt! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.2, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.

Supports Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC)

Bring the system storage bandwidth to an astonishing 128Gbps, utilizing Intel VROC (purchased separately) to create CPU-attached RAID 0/1/5/10 volume further boosts the storage either on performance-wise or integrity-wise.


Intel® WiFi 6 802.11ax + BT 5 Module

Intel Wireless solution supports 802.11ax, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps*. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.

USB Type-C™ Front Panel Connector

Equipped with next generation connectivity GIGABYTE Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C™ header for USB 3.2 Gen2 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.2 Gen2 drive or charging your new mobile device.


12 Phases IR Digital VRM Solution with 70A Power Stage

To unleash the full power of the new Intel 18 core CPU, the motherboard demands un-precedented strong power solution. GIGABYTE R&Ds selects the best components and never stop pursuing the highest overclock performance. That makes X299X DESIGNARE 10G an un-beatable motherboard in the market. X299X DESIGNARE 10G motherboard adopts an all IR digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with Power Stage MOSFET and is capable of providing 70A of power from each phase, for a total of incredible 840A. This 100% digital controller and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from the new 18-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ X processors.

Re-engineered Thermal Solution

With CPU draws bigger power than ever. Thermal solution are pushed to a limit. X299X DESIGNARE 10G features full Board Thermal Protection with Fins-Array and 6mm Balancing Heat Pipes . In order to place full Board Thermal Protection , we try hard to clear a path for it. Furthers, fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to regular heatsinks of the same size. By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pad, it transfers 2.7x more heat than regular thermal pads in the same time period. 6mm Heatpipe helps to transfer heat between heatsinks which to get thermal balance more quickly. On the back, we use Nanocarbon coating on baseplate, which leads to 10% cooler MOSFETs.


Support for DDR4 to 4333MHz and Beyond

GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility to 4333MHz and beyond.


Smart Fan 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their 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.


Hybrid Fan Pin Headers

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.


New Smart Fan 5 Software

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


ALC1220-VB Immersive Gaming ViBes

ALC1220 120dB(A) SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, preventing issues such as low volume and distortion. With the new VB series audio controller, stream your voice to the world vibrantly with both front/rear microphone SNR up to 110/114dB(A).


High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors

The DESIGNARE motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end Chemicon audio capacitors. While the high-end audio capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AOURS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.


DTS :X® Ultra

Recreates an authentic, spatially accurate 3D audio experience for gaming over any headphones or speakers. Supports channel-based, scene based and object-based audio. Provides out-of-the-box calibration for a range of headphones and speakers. Provides post-processing enhancements and device level tuning for DTS® codecs.


No More Confusion During In-Game Voice Chat

Microphone input with higher front dynamic range allows gamers to hear more clearly. No more misunderstandings, no more confusing GO! GO! GO! as NO! NO! NO!


Integrated I/O Shield Armor

With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier and convenient. Users can expect excellent durability with the durable design of the pre-installed I/O shield.


Solid Pin Power Connectors

X299X DESIGNARE 10G feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin +8pin power connectors to offer a stable power supply during CPU overloading.


The Industry's Leading LAN Static-Electricity & Surge Protection

GIGABYTE motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard and its components against potential damage caused by static electricity. GIGABYTE motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.


GIGABYTE Patented DualBIOS™ Design

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
