For Gamers and Professionals
32Gb/s U.2 & M.2 onboard
The workstation board fits next-generation 2.5-inch NVM Express SSDs with an on-board U.2 and M.2 (up to 2280) interface. This exclusive technology exploits the maximum PCI Express 3.0 x4 bandwidth of 32Gbit/s for SSD transfer speeds that are up to 5.3X faster than traditional SSDs.
10Gbit/s USB3.1 built in
This workstation board has both the latest USB3.1 connectivity built in with Type-A and Type-C ports for the very fastest USB data transfers – that's up to 10 Gb/s, or twice as fast USB 3.0. Type-C is the all-new reversible socket for any-way-up convenience.
Protect Your Graphics Card Investment
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process integrates the slot with the fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
With support for both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD® CrossFireX™ 2/3-WAY configurations, the X99 motherboard enables multi-GPU setups so you can harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies to drive games at 4K and beyond.
