ASUS WS X299 SAGE overview

  • 1Description

The WS X299 Sage LGA 2066 CEB Motherboard from ASUS blends GPU performance with up to Quad-SLI support, server-grade validation, and comprehensive cooling options to deliver system builds for training neural networks and crunching through other scalable compute loads. Dual PLX chips extend the number of PCIe lanes to provide additional expansion slots, giving you connectivity options to configure your system with the tools you need to get your job done. The WS X299 Sage supports the LGA 2066 socket, Intel X299 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit). Also supported is USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C, each of which can achieve data transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s, plus dual U.2 and M.2 slots that reach speeds of up to 32 Gb/s.

The CEB form factor of the WS X299 Sage can support quad-channel 4200 (OC), 4133 (OC), 4000 (OC), 3600 (OC), 2666, 2400, and 2133 MHz non-ECC, unbuffered memory. When equipped with an Intel Core X-Series processor with six or more cores, up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM is supported over eight 288-pin DIMM slots, as compared to quad-core processors that support 64GB of DDR4 RAM over four 288-pin DIMM slots.

The WS X299 Sage has a total of eight SATA III 6 Gb/s connectors, two M.2 Socket 3 slots that support PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs (both support 2242/2260/2280 form factors, while one also supports 22110), and two U.2 connectors. There is also 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C port, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-A port, 6 x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and 4 x USB 2.0 Type-A ports, all located at the rear, as well as 1 x USB 3.0 header at mid-board that supports 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one front panel USB 3.1 connector. Other features include Intel I210-AT and I219-LM Gigabit LAN controllers and 7 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots.

The WS X299 Sage does not support integrated graphics, meaning that users will need to purchase a compatible and dedicated GPU of their choice. Once that GPU is installed, multi-GPU output is supported for NVIDIA 4-Way SLI and AMD 4-Way CrossFireX technologies.

Using the Realtek ALC S1220A 7.1-channel HD audio codec, the WS X299 Sage can support analog and digital audio using the integrated 3.5mm and S/PDIF jacks. Included is an ASUS Q-Shield, a vertical M.2 bracket set, a COM port cable, eight SATA III 6 Gb/s cables, M.2 screws, an MOS cooling kit with a fan bracket and a 40 x 40mm fan, a 3-way SLI bridge, a 4-way SLI bridge, an SLI HB bridge, (2-Way-M), and a Q-connector. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

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.

Tune It Your Way

5-Way Optimization - One-Click Overclocking and Cooling
ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your workstation smart. One click takes care of complex tuning, dynamically optimizing essential aspects of the system to provide overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig. Fans stay whisper-quiet with everyday computing, while delivering improved airflow when the system is crunching through CPU- or GPU-intensive tasks. Additionally, stress test functions help optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.
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 their automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking parameters for improved 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 the WS X299 Sage, you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps, and even all-in-one coolers - all via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto Tuning Mode intelligently configures most parameters with a single click. There's also Extreme Quiet Mode, which reduces fan speeds to below the default minimum - keeping your system quiet when performing light tasks.
Precise Digital Power Control
Digi+ Power Control delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for greater stability and performance.
App-Specific Optimization for Professionals
Whether you're a professional content creator or enthusiast, you'll feel the benefit of ASUS' exclusive Turbo Core app. This tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data, and optimize audio settings at the app level, so your WS X299 Sage system is optimized for whatever you're doing.
UEFI BIOS
The mouse-controllable graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, EZ and Advanced modes will help you find your way with ease.

Efficient VRM Heatsink
Designed for powerful Intel Core X-Series processors with up to 18 cores, the WS X299 Sage features a capable thermal design to help ensure top-tier performance with no CPU throttling. Consisting of an efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin array design that maximizes surface area for heat dissipation, plus an additional heatsink and connecting heatpipe to further increase cooling performance, this thermal design ensures that the WS X299 Sage is always ready to handle demanding tasks.
Multiple PLX Heatsinks
With its dual PLX chips that increase the number of available PCIe lanes to enable 4-way GPU configurations, the WS X299 Sage also features a thermal solution to dissipate the heat that comes with routing so much high-speed traffic. An additional heatsink array and heatpipe cover the PLX chips and are positioned in the path of maximum airflow within the chassis, reducing PLX temperatures by up to 68°F for consistent cooling and system stability.
ProCool Power Connector
ASUS ProCool is the power connector reinvented. Compared with traditional power connectors, ProCool connectors provide a more secure, lower resistance connection that enables better heat dissipation and improved reliability.

Fast Connectivity

Dual Onboard M.2 up to 32 Gb/s
The WS X299 Sage features dual onboard M.2 slots, each operating at PCI Express 3.0 x4 to provide an abundant 32 Gb/s of bandwidth.
VROC
Intel Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) surpasses PCH-based RAID arrays that are bottlenecked by the 32 Gb/s limit of the DMI bus, allowing you to utilize CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array that can transfer data at fast speeds.
Dual U.2 Connectors
The U.2 specification lets your SSDs scream at top speed. Simply attach your choice of drive and experience data transfer speeds of up to 32 Gb/s, while also freeing up a PCIe slot for another expansion card.
Intel Optane Memory
Intel Optane is a non-volatile memory technology supported by the WS X299 Sage. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Front Panel Connector
The WS X299 Sage's front panel USB 3.1 connector is ready for next-gen cases and devices.
10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-A & Type-C
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Type-A and reversible USB 3.1 Type-C ports, you'll experience connection flexibility and fast data-transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s.
Dual Intel Server-Class Gigabit LAN
For more reliable networking, the WS X299 Sage features server-class dual Intel Gigabit LAN, ensuring lower CPU utilization and temperatures, strong performance, and improved support for diverse operating systems. The dual Ethernet ports also support teaming which combines the network links to provide higher throughput or redundancy in case of failure.

Reliable Stability and Validation

Server-Grade Memory Validation
The WS X299 Sage supports up to 128GB of quad-channel DDR4 RAM to readily handle the larger data sets found in professional workloads. Strict validation with a wide variety of memory types and operating conditions, including factors such as time, temperature, and voltage ranges, ensures that the WS X299 Sage provides the reliability and stability professionals depend upon to get their work done.
SafeSlot
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to protect your graphics card investment. Manufactured in a single step using an insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
