Server-Class Digital Power Design
AORUS X299 series motherboards use an all digital CPU power design from International Rectifier® which includes both 4th Generation digital PWM Controllers and industry-leading 3rd Generation PowIRstage® controllers. These 100% digital controllers 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 their new Intel® Core™ X-series CPUs.
IR Digital PWM & IR PowIRstage® ICs

Questa nuova generazione di controller digitali IR®e di circuiterie PowIRstage®introduce la tecnologia Isense, capace di fornire un segnale elettrico più potente ma accurato rispetto a prima. Questo permette di distribuire più equamente il carico sulle circuiterie PowerIRstage®, andando ad escludere il rischio di sovraccarico, e quindi di malfunzionamenti o guasti, di una singola circuiteria.




Server Level Chokes
AORUS X299 series motherboards feature Server Level Chokes.
• Server level reliability
• High current capacity
• New design reduces heat created by power loss and provides efficient power delivery to CPU VRM area.
Turbo B-Clock
Built-in advanced performance tuning IC
Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the X299 series motherboards enable overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice. With the new linear range adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 90MHz to 500MHz are now possible, so that overclockers are not limited to the 5% ranges of traditional straps.

CPU PEG bus, chipset PCIe bus and DMI bus (link between CPU and chipset) have the ability to change from default of 100MHz linearly up to 200MHz synchronously

PERFORMANCE FUELED BY
OPTANE

The AORUS 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.
M.2 Thermal Guard
Never bottleneck because of a little bit of heat. With the AORUS X299 Series Motherboards, M.2 Thermal Guards are critical for enthusiasts who want the most out of their storage drives. The AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2s as it dissipates and reduces the heat on these storage devices.
Triple NVMe PCIe x4 M.2 with Thermal Guard
With a high-end platform that is already so feature-filled triple M.2 support is a rarity. AORUS Gaming Motherboards has focused on delivering this technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential. With Triple M.2s available on the X299 AORUS Gaming Series, configuring RAID Arrays have never been simpler.
M.2 SSDs not included. Product features may vary by model.
