The new WS X299 Sage/10G motherboard delivers a blend of tremendous GPU performance with up to Quad-SLI support, server-grade validation and comprehensive cooling options to provide the perfect system build for training neural networks and crunching other scalable compute loads. It shares the same refined aesthetics as WS X299 Sage/10G and adds dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports with the Intel X550AT2 10GBASE-T controller for uncompromising networking performance. Dual PLX chips extend the number of PCIe lanes to provide additional expansion slots, giving you robust connectivity options to configure your system with the tools you need to get your job done.

Workstation exclusive

Dual onboard 10G LAN
Featuring dual onboard 10G LAN ports backed by the cutting-edge Intel X550AT2 10GBASE-T Ethernet controller, WS X299 Sage/10G provides server-class connectivity that supports high-density, high-bandwidth and low-latency access-layer networks. With data-rates up to 10Gbps, WS X299 Sage/10G is able to transfer 4K videos and other large files in a fraction of the time required by conventional networking gear. The onboard controller negates the need to allocate a PCI Express slot to a dedicated network card, saving valuable space for other components.

Multi-GPU support
WS X299 Sage/10G fits up to four dual-slot graphics cards and supports both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ 4-way configurations to enable multi-GPU setups that harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies, including NVIDIA® Quadro®. With performance beyond 15.23 TFLOPS*, NVIDIA Quadro is the perfect complement to WS X299 Sage/10G, delivering the best performance for design, modeling, medical research, and processing-intensive simulation and rendering applications.

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controllable graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, EZ and Advanced modes will help you find your way with ease.

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 DDR4-4200MHz and beyond.

OC Design – ASUS PRO Clock II Technology
WS X299 Sage/10G 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 Intel® Core™ X-series processors.

Cooler by Design

Flexible Cooling Controls
WS X299 Sage/10G features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Advanced thermal design for maximized performance
Designed for the all-around workstation, WS X299 Sage/10G features a robust thermal solution that dissipates heat from the VRM, Ethernet controller and PLX chips to prevent throttling. An additional heatsink array covers these components and heatpipes lie within the path of maximum chassis airflow to provide optimal cooling for your workstation, ensuring maximum performance and system stability.

ProCool power connector
ASUS ProCool is the power connector reinvented. Compared with traditional power connectors, ProCool connectors provide a more secure, low resistance connection, enabling better heat dissipation and improved reliability.

Ultrafast connectivity

Dual Onboard M.2
Unleashed storage speeds of up to 32Gbps
WS X299 Sage/10G features dual onboard M.2 slots, each operating at X4 PCI Express 3.0 to provide an abundant 32Gbps of bandwidth.

VROC
Upgrade your RAID
Intel Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) obliterates PCH-based RAID arrays that are bottlenecked by the 32Gbps limit of the DMI bus, allowing you to utilize CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array that can transfer data at insane speeds.
*A VROC key is required to enable VROC RAID arrays. For information about VROC key availability, please contact your local Intel representative.

U.2 connectors
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.

Intel Optane memory
Intel Optane memory ready
Intel® Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by WS X299 Sage/10G. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 front-panel connector
Future-proof connectivity
WS X299 Sage/10G's front panel USB 3.1 connector is ready for next-gen PC cases and devices.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C
Ultimate-speed 10Gbps with USB 3.1 Gen 2 onboard
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A™ and reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.

Reliable stability and validation

Server-grade memory validation
WS X299 Sage/10G supports up to 128GB of quad-channel DDR4 RAM to readily handle the larger data sets found in professional workloads. Strict validation with a wide variety of memory types and operating conditions — including factors such as time, temperature and voltage ranges — ensures that WS X299 Sage/10G provides the reliability and stability professionals depend upon to get their work done.

SafeSlot
Protect your Graphics Card Investment
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide protect your graphics card investment. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
