Power Solution 
 
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.
 
 
 
 
 
A Brief History
 
We became the first manufacturer to implement phase doublers when we shipped the A8N32-SLI Deluxe back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits lead to phase doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.
 
 
 
 
 
A Shift in CPU Demands
 
However, the current crop of CPUs pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally dense workloads at an incredible pace. As an added bonus, they also consume less power at idle and can transition between loads states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power design priorities because phase doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response.
 
 
 
 
 
Bucking the Trend
 
Fortunately, the latest Integrated power components can handle higher currents than the devices of yesteryear, making it possible to implement a simple circuit topology that isn't hamstrung by the processing lag of phase doublers. That's why our X299 motherboards utilize teamed power stages to deliver higher burst current per phase, while maintaining the thermal performance of phase-doubled designs.
 
 
 
 
 
Thermal Performance
 
Each VRM component serves a specific purpose. PWM controllers and doublers control the circuit, and the power stages do the heavy lifting from an electrical and thermal standpoint. That's why the Encore utilizes 16 Infineon TDA21472 power stages. The TDA21472 sits at the top of Infineon's lineup and features a low RDSON to reduce switching and conduction losses, helping to improve overall thermal headroom.
 
 
 
 
 
High Quality Components
 
Dual 8-pin ProCool II power connectors
Two ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Memory
 
Optimem III DDR4 4266+ MHz (OC)
 
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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Heatsink
