ASUS WS X299 Pro is finally available

Designed for workstations

A few months ago, ASUS has revealed the full specifications of its WS X299 Pro motherboard. This model belongs to the high-end series and it's recommended for Core i9 processors. Like the previous model base on Intel X99 chipset, the upcoming WS X299 Pro sports the company's highest-grade eletrical components. The motherboard is finally available on Geizhals.

Like the same model from the previous generation the WS X299 Pro is based on an ATX form factor. There are four full-sized PCIe slots with steel reinforcements and one PCIe x4 slot. Compared to the previous version, this WS X299 Pro features a heavier and bigger CPU VRM heatsink that is connected using a single heat pipe to another solid block. This way the chips should receive adequate cooling.

In the case of storage you'll find six angled SATA ports, one U.2 port and two M.2 slots. Both M.2 slots have been covered with a black heat sink which should provide better cooling for your high performance SSDs. Looking for additional features we find a debug display, several onboard buttons and support for USB 3.1 ports. ASUS equips the WS X299 Pro with two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, four USB 3.1 Gen1 ports and four USB 2.0 connectors. Furthermore there are two Intel Gigabit Ethernet ports and the analogue audio panel with optical out.

The ASUS WS X299 Pro is available on Geizhals for 317 Euro.
