Teamed Power Architecture
A Brief History
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.
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.
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.
Infineon TDA21472 power stage
16 Infineon TDA21472 power stages comprise the Encore VRM, each rated to handle 70 amps.
MicroFine alloy chokes
Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
10K Japanese-made black metallic capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
To further optimize transient response, we've added 8 SP-capacitors to the power plane. The resulting bulk capacitance results in a 13.8% shallower AC-DC load-line setting compared Rampage VI Omega.
