      CPU performance boost

      Unleash your workstation's full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking parameters for optimal performance.

      All-round energy efficiency

      With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode – a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

      Flexible cooling controls for air or liquid

      With WS X299 PRO, you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers – all via Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum – keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

      Precise digital power control

      Digi+ delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

      App-specific optimization for professionals and gamers

      Whether you're a professional content creator or gaming enthusiast, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo Core app. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level – so your WS X299 PRO system is perfectly optimized for whatever you're doing.
