The GIGABYTE X299 enthusiast motherboards are faster and more powerful than any motherboard the world has ever seen. With an aggressively redesigned armor and thermal heatsinks its sure to turn heads and catch eyes. Performance is no stranger to GIGABYTE, with exotic cooling and an ability to be tuned to peak performance GIGABYTE motherboards will exceed expectations.
Server-Class Digital Power Design
GIGABYTE X299 series motherboards use an all digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controllers and Smart Power Stage 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.
Server Level Chokes
GIGABYTE 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.
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. X299 DESIGNARE EX Motherboard has focused on delivering this technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential. With Triple M.2s available on the X299 Series, configuring RAID Arrays have never been simpler.
Triple M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 drives-Thermal Guard. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2 devices as it helps to reduce and dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
