DESIGN CONCEPT | WINGS OF EXCELLENCE

The falcon utilizes its powerful wings to soar through the skies and lock down its prey. The AORUS Core takes inspiration from the falcons aerodynamic wings, incorporating a multi-layered design which features wing shaped contours and also resembles the falcons high velocity ascension and dive through the skies. With sleek and metallic armor, the AORUS Core symbolizes advancement in technology with its futuristic style.

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE

Powerful VRM design, memory OC capability, multiple PCIe and M.2 slots makes a full function board with possibility and scalability.

REENGINEERED THERMAL SOLUTION

As processors draws more power, RDs trying hard to keep VRM stays cool preventing it from throttle with efficient thermal solution. Along with SMART FAN 5, real time monitor temperatures changes and adjust fan speed accordingly, to keep certain level of performance without too much noise.

NEXT GENERATION CONNECTIVITY

A Flagship product needs to be future-proof so your system stays up-to-date with the latest technology. X299X AORUS MASTER provides all next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to speed.

AESTHETICS

RGB Fusion 2.0

With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better with Addressable LEDs.* RGB Fusion 2.0 offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 on X299 Series AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.

AORUS Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion 2.0 with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.

Multi-Zone Light Show Design

Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.

With an integrated intuitive user interface, the RGB Fusion 2.0 provides you a better solution for customizing the lighting effects across all supported devices. From motherboards, graphics cards to the peripheral products, you can personalize your gaming rig with your own style and show off your build by sharing the profiles. In addition, the new gaming mode makes the lighting effects interactive with selected games to bring you the most immersive gaming experience.

HI-FI AUDIO SYSTEM- AS A BUILT-IN SOUND CARD

For Hi-Fi Audio Solution, can be grouped into 2 parts.

Audio Signal Process, not distorted digital signal go through ESS 9218 Sabre DAC for Digital/Analog converter with 130dB SNR, 112dB THD+N and supports higher impedance up to 600 headphone. Further, audiophile grade capacitor and gold plated audio jack ensures the non-compensated audio performance. Audio Signal Optimization, TXC Oscillator provides precise time triggers to Digital-Analog Converters. WIMA Capacitors to deliver crystal and balanced sound.

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.

DTS Sound Unbound* leverage Microsoft Spatial, enabling the the most believable, 3D audio experience for games.
