Overview

Performance

The ROG Rampage – reimagined. ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore EATX motherboard delivers extreme, dominating performance

Teamed Power Architecture

Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

OPTIMEM III DDR4 4266+ MHZ (O.C.)

OptiMem III is a major milestone in our pursuit to create motherboards that offer the most memory overclocking headroom. When applied to the X299 platform, OptiMem III increases frequency margin to the point that the board is no longer a bottleneck. Pair the Extreme Encore with a capable chip and memory kit and achieve frequencies up to DDR4-4300MHz in a 4 or 8-DIMM configuration.

Cooling

Effective cooling is extremely important for processing beasts that feature up to 18 cores. ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore is fully armed with multiple heatsinks and a backplate to provide the best foundation for extreme PC systems, enabling higher performance at lower temperatures.

Cooling Heatsinks

Active cooling VRM heatsink

Custom Delta Superflo fans located within the heatsink kick on after 60° C and allow the Rampage VI Extreme Encore to handle sustained power draw of over 500 watts.

Aluminum I/O cover

An aluminum I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink via an embedded heatpipe, increasing mass and surface area.

Aluminum heatsink cover

The heatsink cover is crafted from pure aluminum to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.

DIMM.2 heatsinks

The ROG DIMM.2 module now passively cools M.2 drives with metal heatsinks that also keep your build looking clean.

Solid steel backplate

A steel, electro-galvanized, cold-rolled coil construction backplate strengthens the motherboard to prevent bending, and adds additional mass to siphon heat from the VRM.

PCH heatsink

A PCH heatsink blends seamlessly with the aluminum heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.

ROG Water-Cooling Zone

Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop.

Fan Extension Card II

ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore includes the new Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that are controllable via FanXpert 4. The card features three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard, and also comes with three thermistors that can be affixed to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it provides three RGB headers to provide illuminated effects for your RGB fan.

OverClocking

Rampage VI Extreme Encore is packed with intuitive and flexible tools that let you customize every aspect of your system to deliver the performance and features you want. Take advantage of 5-Way Optimization for intelligent, automatic overclocking. Or enjoy full manual control via comprehensive UEFI BIOS settings.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooler to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

Accurate Voltage Monitoring

Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Encore features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Performance Level Up

The dashboard-style control panel of AI Suite 3 lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Rampage VI Extreme Encore system with ease. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.

Connectivity

Along with customizable audio profiles and tools to optimize storage and networking performance, the Rampage VI Extreme Encore includes future-proof USB ports to accommodate a wide variety of devices to ensure that your machine is ready for any task.

Storage

Four M.2 slots let you fully utilize the Intel VROC and NVMe RAID to achieve ultimate SSD storage speeds.

VROC

The exclusive ROG DIMM.2 module allow you to take advantage of the Intel Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) feature* by connecting two M.2 drives in RAID configuration. With VROC, your RAID arrays are easily configured to be bootable, and traditional DMI bottlenecks are eliminated.

*Additional purchase of Intel VROC hardware key required for RAID 1, 5 or 10

PCH RAID

Wired directly to the X299 PCH, the two onboard M.2 slots can be used in chipset-based RAID configurations to improve storage performance or provide a layer of redundancy.

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2

Reversible USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C™ ports provide ultimate flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

USB 3.2 Gen 2 front-panel connectors

Two front-panel USB 3.2 connectors are ready to accommodate a wide variety of devices.

Wi-Fi 6 (AX200)

Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.

10 Gbps onboard Ethernet

Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

Intel Ethernet

ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.

SupremeFX

ROG is renowned for superior onboard audio, and Rampage VI Extreme Encore is no exception. The front-panel headphone output features a SABRE9018Q2C integrated DAC/amp capable of reaching -115dB THD+N to provide playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of even the highest-quality audio track. The improved resolution derived from the ESS Hyperstream™ DAC architecture expands the soundstage to give a better sense of positioning. Beyond resolution, the 121dB DNR provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch. And, when you want to shift priority to musicality, our Sonic Studio software provides an array of EQ options, allowing the sound signature to be tweaked to suit your cans.
