ASUS PRIME X299-A Motherboard For Intel® Socket LGA 2066 CPUs


New Intel® X299 Chipset Goes Further!

featureThe high end Intel® X299 Chipset does more, so you can build a better Megatasking PC or the ultimate Gaming Rig. Using a new Intel® X-Series Processor on Socket LGA 2066, this Motherboard has the best features of the X299 Chipset.

PRIME Components, Design & Optimization
With it's M.2 Heatsink, Industry Leading Cooling and 5-Way Optimization, the X299 PRIME X299-A is the foundation for your next Gaming Rig. ASUS's X299 Series PRIME X299-A Motherboard is for enthusiasts; designed for the latest Intel® LGA 2066 Socket Processors; faster and more powerful than any other consumer Processor / Motherboard platform in the world!

Enhanced Performance: Fueled By OPTANE™ Memory

featureOriginally called 3D Xpoint™, Intel® Optane™ will boost your Storage beyond traditional bandwidth limitations into a whole new category of data transfer performance!

This ASUS X299 Platform is the first enthusiast platform that supports Intel’s latest Optane™ memory technology. Optane™ Memory fuels storage performance by acting as the fastest cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional non-cached mechanical drives.

This ASUS X299 PRIME X299-A Motherboard Like Many Video Cards

Depending on your Intel® Socket LGA 2066 X-Series Processor, you have 16, 28 or even 44 PCIe Lanes. All three CPU versions can support up to 3 AMD or NVIDIA Video Cards in CrossFire or SLI Configurations for ultimate Gaming on 4K UHD Monitors and beyond. Here is how they configure on this Motherboard with 1, 2 or 3 video cards:

  • 44 PCIe Lane CPUs: x16, x16/x16 and x16/x16/x8 Modes
  • 28 PCIe Lane CPUs: x16, x16/x8 and x16/x8/x1 Modes
  • 16 PCIe Lane CPUs: x16, x8/x8 and x8/x8/x1 Modes



  • 5-Way Optimization:
    One-click, system-wide tuning, delivering optimized overclocks and intelligent cooling for CPU or GPU-intensive tasks
  • Industry-leading cooling options:
    Comprehensive controls for fans and water pumps, via Fan Xpert 4 software or the acclaimed ASUS UEFI
  • M.2 Heatsink:
    Ultra-efficient heatsink reduces M.2 SSD temperatures by up to 20°C for unthrottled SSD storage speeds and enhanced reliability
  • Aura Sync:
    Controllable onboard RGB lighting that’s easily synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.

Intel® Optane™ Memory Readyfeature

Intel Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile high speed memory caching technology supported by ASUS X299 Motherboards that offers a unique memory caching solution.

Optane™ Memory fuels storage performance by acting as the fastest cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional non-cached mechanical drives.
