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 optimizes power consumption and maximizes 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 optimization for professionals and 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, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level so your WS X299 PRO system is perfectly optimized for whatever you're doing.

Flagship Performance

Make your memory go faster

With optimized 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.

OC Design – 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 IntelCore X-series processors.

Multi-GPU support

With support for both NVIDIASLI 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.

Cooler by Design

Flexible Cooling Controls

WS X299 PRO features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

  • Multiple temperature sources
    • Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI
  • Water pump+
    • A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
  • AIO pump
    • A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
  • 4-pin PWM/DC fan
    • Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
  • ASUS Fan Extension Card support
    • Includes a header for fan extension card support.
  • Smart protection
    • A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.\

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 maximizes 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.

Connect everything, ultra-fast

Dual Onboard M.2 & M.2 heatsink

Perfected cooling for unleashed performance

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 20C, ensuring peak performance under all scenarios.

U.2 connector

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.
