TUF X299 Mark 1 has been carefully designed to boost airflow and heat dissipation to keep the temperature of vital components as cool as can be. TUF Thermal Armor puts a fan in the PCH area that directs airflow towards an ultra-efficient M.2 heatsink, slashing SSD temperatures by up to 25°C and that means optimal storage performance and improved drive longevity.
ASUS TUF engineers have forged TUF ICe, a dedicated processor that monitors onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds to provide ultra-accurate cooling in every scenario whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimisation via Thermal Radar 3 and TUF Detective 2.
Our Thermal Radar 3 software allows you to control connected chassis fans, water pumps, AIOs, and even the fans of ASUS graphics cards all to provide ultimate cooling performance for gaming and productivity. Multiple onboard sensors also enable the temperatures of key components to be monitored in real time, so you can assess and optimise cooling efficiency.
You demand 24/7 reliability and we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most punishing tests to ensure they're ready for long-term duty in any environment. In our tests we overheat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 reliability!
TUF X299 Mark 1 delivers great strength and cooling via an exclusive TUF Fortifier a reinforced backplate which adds structural rigidity across the board to ensure the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimising the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending.
TUF Fortifier also includes a thermal pad that efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components an innovation that reduces operating temperatures by up to 5°C!
TUF X299 Mark 1 features a VGA holder that eliminates ugly and potentially damaging graphics card sag by supporting the motherboard to prevent bowing and bending. The VGA holder is crafted from a single piece of strong sheet metal and is able to support up to 15 kg so it provides serious support for even the heaviest graphic card!
TUF X299 Mark 1 has unique Dust Defenders to prevent dust and other airborne particles from entering the motherboard's PCI Express® expansion slots, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state for longer.
SafeSlot* is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new 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.
ESD Guards 2 protects TUF X299 Mark 1 from damaging electrostatic discharge. ESD Guards 2 is tested to levels that are 2X higher than industry standards. We also perform pin-level* testing at 30%-higher ESD levels than previous TUF standards. Our stringent tests mean greater component longevity for your TUF motherboard!
TUF X299 Mark 1 includes a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator to extend CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and BCLK overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from the Intel® Core X-series processors.
ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever to 4133MHz and beyond. ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimising coupling noise and signal reflection. Refined manufacturing ensures ultra-consistent quality, minimal crosstalk between custom trace paths, and time-aligned signaling for superior stability and compatibility.
The TUF Detective 2 app connects via Bluetooth and allows you to track information, detect and diagnose errors, or adjust vital system settings from your Bluetooth-enabled smart devices. TUF X299 Mark 1 even comes with a Bluetooth dongle, so you're ready to connect right away!
With reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports and backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A front-panel connector, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.
Unleash the TUF X299 Mark 1 Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) feature with the addition of an ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card, which allows you to attach up to four PCIe® 3.0 x16 M.2 drives for a total bandwidth of up to 128Gbps. With VROC, you can utilise CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array, eliminating traditional DMI bottlenecks, so your storage transfers aren't held back by other traffic.
Intel Optane is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by TUF X299 Mark 1. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
Don't let slow networking disrupt your workflow! With dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet connectors, TUF X299 Mark 1 keeps your data moving swiftly and efficiently. With both LAN ports teamed* you'll benefit from increased bandwidth for more speed, automated load balancing for smoother data flows, and instant failover if something should go wrong so access to your files is always fast, efficient and uninterrupted.
Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology allows you to configure application priority via an intuitive interface, and reduces network lag by up to 1.45X!
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
TUF X299 Mark 1 utilises a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek the Realtek S1220A. It also features an unprecedented 120dB signal-to-noise ratio for the stereo line-out and a 113dB SNR for the line-in, providing pristine audio quality. Additionally, a new impedance-sensing circuit automatically adjusts gain to ensure the optimal volume range for your headphones.
The Intel X299 chipset supports LGA 2066-socket Intel Core X-series processors. It provides improved performance by utilising serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, X299 provides a maximum 10 USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, 8 SATA 6Gbps ports and 32Gbps M.2 support for faster data retrieval.Intel® Core X-series processors for LGA 2066 socket
