Overview

ASUS Pro Workstation motherboards are designed for professionals in AI training, deep learning, animation, 3D rendering or media production. Featuring expandable graphics, extensive storage, impressive connectivity and exceptional overall performance and reliability, Pro Workstation motherboards are the ideal solution for creative professionals. Each motherboard includes centralized management software with support for out-of-band management, so they're also an efficient and cost-effective option for IT administrators.

Breakthrough Performance

Intel®'s high-end desktop platform raises the stakes with updated Intel Core™ X-Series Processors that boast cores, cache, and bandwidth. The Pro WS X299 Sage II is ready for the additional processing power that plows through CPU-intensive tasks, and the extra bandwidth allows you to add more GPUs and NVMe SSDs to accelerate a wide range of work.

Four Dual-slot GPUs support

Pro WS X299 Sage II fits up to four dual-slot graphics cards and supports both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFire™ 4-way configurations to enable multi-GPU setups that harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies, including NVIDIA® Quadro®. NVIDIA® Quadro® is the perfect complement to Pro WS X299 Sage II, delivering the best performance for design, modeling, medical research, and processing-intensive simulation and rendering applications.

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 DDR4-4266 MHz and beyond.

Intel Dual 2.5G Internet

2.5G on-board Ethernet kicks your Ethernet connection up a notch with an up to 2.5X bandwidth improvement. Using your existing Ethernet cable, you can take advantage this networking upgrade to experience smoother, lag-free gaming, immediately stream high-resolution videos and enjoy faster file transfers.

Thunderbolt 3 card

Pro WS X299 Sage II provides full support for a ThunderboltEX 3 card. An Intel®-certified Thunderbolt™ 3 add-on card enables breathtaking bi-directional speeds of up to 40Gbps through a single cable — up to 4X faster than other PC data-transfer protocols. Beyond sheer bandwidth, Thunderbolt™ 3 supports daisy-chaining up to six devices, utilizes a Type-C reversible connector for compatibility with the latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C devices, and meets USB power delivery specifications for fast, high-power charging.

M.2 & U.2

Achieve speed with onboard M.2 & U.2

Professional applications require fast solid-state storage, which is why the Pro WS X299 Sage II is equipped with dual M.2 slots and triple U.2 slots that are compatible with the latest NVMe SSDs. M.2 slots support longer 110 mm drives, and they can be configured into bootable RAID arrays connected directly to the CPU via Intel VROC technology.

* The U.2 connectors are only supported on 48/44-Lane CPUs. U.2_3 is only supported on 48-Lane CPUs.

** M.2 PCIE RAID support. M.2_1 socket shares bandwidth with SATA6G_1 port.

VROC

Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) is an all-new feature of Pro WS X299 Sage that enables use of an Intel VROC hardware key. With VROC, you can easily configure RAID arrays and eliminate traditional bottlenecks, so your storage is not held back by other traffic — perfect for busy scratch drives and content libraries.

*Intel® VROC is supported via RSTe, VROC_HW_Key are to be purchased separately. NVMe RAID type and function will depend on Intel® VROC_HW_ key installed.

Tune it your way

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS X299 motherboards. The Pro WS X299 Sage II packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system to deliver the performance that you desire.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

5-Way Optimization

One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
Fans stay quiet as a whisper for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.

All-new stress test that allows users to optimize and overclock for CPU or memory-centric workloads.

Cool to the core

Effective cooling is extremely important, even at stock speeds. That is why the Pro WS X299 Sage II allows consolidated cooling control of the entire system, even for the most hardcore rigs. It comes equipped with onboard heatsinks, an array of fan headers, options for water pump and AIO headers.

Multiple Ultra-efficient heatsinks

Pro WS X299 Sage II features a thoughtful thermal design to ensure maximum performance with no CPU throttling. Its ultra-efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin array maximizes surface area for heat dissipation, and its heatsinks and a connecting heat-pipe that's situated in the direct path of airflow combine to ensure optimal cooling performance — even under the most demanding workloads.

M.2 heatsink

Pro WS X299 Sage II features an ultra-efficient heatsink to reduce M.2 SSD temperatures for optimal storage performance and improved SSD longevity.

Cooler by design

ASUS Pro X299 Sage II features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 and the UEFI BIOS.

Audio & Personality

We pay careful attention to all the little details that improve your overall experience, from integrating a flashing utility directly into the UEFI to simplifying firmware updates or displaying your system vital signs. Pro WS X299 Sage II provides the tools you need to personalize your build and stay on top of things.

Exclusive Codec

Realtek codec and unique design features for pristine, powerful audio

Pro WS X299 Sage II utilizes a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek — the Realtek S1220A. It also features an unprecedented 120dB signal-to-noise ratio for the stereo line-out and a 113dB SNR for the line-in, providing pristine audio quality. Additionally, a new impedance-sensing circuit automatically adjusts the gain to ensure optimal volume range for your headphones.

DTS:X® Ultra adds a spatial audio feature to boost headphones and speakers for an enhanced gaming, VR, and extended reality experience. DTS:X Ultra supports sound based on channels, scenes, and objects to allow for deeper sonic immersion in enabled content. It also provides post-processing enhancements and device-level tuning for DTS® codecs.

Aura Sync

Outshine your competition

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers.* And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

* The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 2A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 2m.
*The addressable RGB header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strips (5V/Data/Ground), with a max power rating of 3A (5V) and a max of 60 LEDs.
**RGB and Addressable RGB LED Extension cables are included. LED Strips and Aura Compatible devices are sold separately.  

ASUS Control Center

Pro WS X299 Sage II features ASUS Control Center (ACC), a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations and digital signage. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.
