The Ultimate Force
TUF X299 Mark 2 is the durable ATX motherboard made for enthusiasts, modders and gamers who demand reliable performance day in, day out. It's engineered with Industry-leading cooling controls and temperature monitoring, enabling you to build a system that's efficiently cooled and supremely stable. Some of the world's most respected independent testing laboratories have certified TUF components as fit for military use. Every board is subjected to rigorous testing and validation procedures, including warp and drop tests â€” so you know that TUF X299 Mark 2 will stand up to whatever you throw at it. In fact, we're so confident of the reliability and durability of our products that each and every TUF motherboard is backed.
ASUS Pro Clock II Technology
Dedicated design for overclocking
TUF X299 Mark 2 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 IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ X-series processors.
Make your memory go faster
ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever â€” to 4133MHz and beyond. ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing 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.
Thermal Radar 3
Instant fan tuning, complete system cooling
Our Thermal Radar 3 software allows you to control connected chassis fans, water pumps, AIOs, and even the fans of ASUS graphics cards â€” 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 optimize cooling efficiency.
You demand 24/7 reliability â€” 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 â€” so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 reliability!
Protect your graphics card investment
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.
TUF ESD Guards 2
2X-stronger ESD protection
ESD Guards 2 protects TUF X299 Mark 2 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!
Certified for tough duty
Certified military-grade TUF chokes offer unbeatable durability in order to maximize the lifespan of your system.
+110% temperature, tolerance and 1.5X-longer lifespan.
Connect with Unparalleled Speed
USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-Aâ„¢, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.
Speed up with onboard M.2 up to 32Gbps
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, TUF X299 Mark 2's dual 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.
Intel VROC support
Unleash the TUF X299 Mark 2 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 PCIeÂ® 3.0 x16 M.2 drives â€” for a total bandwidth of up to 128Gbps. With VROC, you can utilize CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array, eliminating traditional DMI bottlenecks, so that storage transfers aren't held back by other traffic.
Intel Optane memory ready
Intel Optaneâ„¢ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by TUF X299 Mark 2. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
Intel Gigabit LAN
More throughput, less CPU usage and great gaming experiences
Don't let slow networking disrupt your workflow! With IntelÂ® Gigabit Ethernet connectors, TUF X299 Mark 2 keeps your data moving swiftly and efficiently. With LAN port, you'll benefit from increased bandwidth for more speed, automated load balancing for smoother data flows, and instant failover if something should go wrong â€” so access to your files is always fast, efficient and uninterrupted.
TUF X299 Mark 2 utilizes a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek â€” 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.
