The AMD TRX40 chipset harnesses the numerous cores and massive bandwidth and multi-lane compatibility available in the latest AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors to provide next-level performance and rich connectivity for power users, content creators and enthusiasts who demand the very best from their builds. From the intelligent VRM design that ensures robust and reliable power delivery to the use of high-quality components, ASUS TRX40 series motherboards are packed with crucial design features that get the most out of this demanding platform.

SETTING THE STAGE FOR SERIOUS OVERCLOCKING

Teamed Power Stages

To maximize the performance of the TRX40 platform, ASUS TRX40 series motherboards feature 16 power stages spread over eight phases that deliver twice the current instantaneously. Pumping out higher burst current per phase improves transient response, which enables high core count (HCC) processors operate at optimum levels. With its ability to get the best out of these latest processors, the VRM in ASUS TRX40 series motherboards is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

MASSIVE BANDWIDTH FOR ANY TASK

PCIe 4.0 Ready

Having the bandwidth to drive multiple PCIe SSDs and graphics cards is part of the allure of high-end desktop platforms. That's why every PCIe x16 and M.2 slot on ASUS TRX40 series motherboards supports PCIe 4.0, delivering up to 32 GB/s bandwidth. With up to five M.2 slots, our latest motherboards come equipped with all the capacity you need to create your ultimate build.
