Teamed Power Architecture

Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

OPTIMEM III DDR4 4266+ MHZ (O.C.)

OptiMem III is a major milestone in our pursuit to create motherboards that offer the most memory overclocking headroom. When applied to the X299 platform, OptiMem III increases frequency margin to the point that the board is no longer a bottleneck. Pair the Extreme Encore with a capable chip and memory kit and achieve frequencies up to DDR4-4300MHz in a 4 or 8-DIMM configuration.

Cooler by Design

Rampage VI Extreme Encore features the most comprehensive cooling options ever.

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

One header is dedicated fully to the onboard heatsink fan.

Bundled card Includes six additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

ROG Water-Cooling Zone

Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop.

A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

A dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.

A dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.

A special connector enables specially designed water blocks to provide flow, temperature and leakage data.

Fan Extension Card II

ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore includes the new Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that are controllable via FanXpert 4. The card features three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard, and also comes with three thermistors that can be affixed to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it provides three RGB headers to provide illuminated effects for your RGB fan.

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 cooler to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

Accurate Voltage Monitoring

Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Encore features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Performance Level Up

The dashboard-style control panel of AI Suite 3 lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Rampage VI Extreme Encore system with ease. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.

Storage

Four M.2 slots let you fully utilize the Intel VROC and NVMe RAID to achieve ultimate SSD storage speeds.

VROC

The exclusive ROG DIMM.2 module allow you to take advantage of the Intel Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) feature* by connecting two M.2 drives in RAID configuration. With VROC, your RAID arrays are easily configured to be bootable, and traditional DMI bottlenecks are eliminated.
*Additional purchase of Intel VROC hardware key required for RAID 1, 5 or 10

PCH RAID

Wired directly to the X299 PCH, the two onboard M.2 slots can be used in chipset-based RAID configurations to improve storage performance or provide a layer of redundancy.

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2

Reversible USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C™ ports provide ultimate flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

USB 3.2 Gen 2 front-panel connectors

Two front-panel USB 3.2 connectors are ready to accommodate a wide variety of devices.

Wi-Fi 6 (AX200)

Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.

10 Gbps onboard Ethernet

Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

Intel Ethernet

ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.

* Actual speed varies depending on networking conditions.
** Minimum Category 6 network cables required for 10 Gbps operation. Category 5e cables support up to 5 Gbps.

The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
*A head-related transfer function is an audio algorithm derived from sound data recorded through a dummy head. Test tones are played from a spherical grid around the dummy head to obtain subtle changes in sounds that come from different directions. The results are combined into an algorithm that allows Sonic Studio's virtual surround to process sound true to life.
