ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro is expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of AMD’s latest high-core-count processors for content creators, designers and professional use. Combining a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions, ultrafast PCIe 4.0 connectivity and intelligent tuning options, the high-end desktop motherboard delivers the performance and stability needed to turn every creative vision into reality.
Get the Most out of All Your Cores
AMD’s HEDT platform raises the stakes with the latest AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors that boast more cores and higher bandwidth than ever before. Prime TRX40-Pro is ready for the additional processing power that plows through intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and video editing, and the extra bandwidth allows you to add multiple graphics cards and NVMe SSDs to accelerate your productivity.
Fully loaded takes on a new meaning when you have up to 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes stemming from the CPU. These lanes can be split in an x16/x16/x16 configuration spanning the board’s trio of PCIe x16 slots, allowing you to load up on GPUs to supercharge your work efficiency – whether you’re a CAD professional, 3D artist or other content creation experts.
Triple PCIe 4.0 M.2
Serious Speed with Onboard M.2
Professional content creation applications require fast solid-state storage, which is why Prime TRX40-Pro is equipped with three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots that are compatible with the latest NVMe SSDs. All slots support up to 110 mm drives, and they can be configured into bootable RAID arrays for ultrafast data-transfer speeds.
USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C Front-Panel Connector
Plenty of USB ports are provided to support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a front-panel Type-C™ connector with faster USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.
Cool to the Core
Effective content creation demands a reliable, professional foundation. Prime TRX40-Pro is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads, so that your focus remains fixed on your creative goals.
VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pads
A massive VRM heatsink and high-quality thermal pads enhance heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance. A fan holder is bundled for additional cooling options.
SoC VRM Heatsink
Prime TRX40-Pro features an SoC VRM heatsink, positioned in the pathway of the chipset fan’s airflow, to enable the SoC VRM to stay cool during memory overclocking.
Active Chipset Heatsink Solution
Dedicated Cooling for Unthrottled Transfers
PCIe 4.0 provides twice the bandwidth for data flowing through the chipset, which creates more heat than the previous generation. Prime TRX40-Pro features an actively cooled heatsink to prevent throttling during sustained transfers, designed with the screws on top for easy access and maintenance.
Cooler by Design
Prime TRX40-Pro features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
Tune It Your Way
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. Prime TRX40-Pro packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
– An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
– Fans stay quiet as a whisper for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU- or GPU-intensive tasks.
– The stress test allows you to optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.
The renowned 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.
Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers
When you’re ready to take a deeper dive into the configuration of your rig, Advanced Mode grants total control. Each section is intuitively organized, and a built-in search feature makes it easy to find the option you need. Tweak cooling parameters, save profiles, apply overclocks, and unleash the full potential of the latest Ryzen processor.
The FlexKey offers a new option to remap the system reset button on the chassis to toggling Aura lighting on or off, activate Safe Boot or boot directly into the UEFI.

Little Things Make a Big Difference
We pay careful attention to all the little details that improve your overall experience, from utilizing exclusive codecs for pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls for a customized look. Prime TRX40-Pro provides the tools you need to personalize your build for a more enjoyable creation process.
Pre-Mounted I/O Shield
Set Up without Slip-Ups
Form meets function in the pre-mounted I/O shield that we pioneered with the ROG series motherboards. Now available on Prime TRX40-Pro, this feature streamlines the installation process for budding builders and savvy enthusiasts alike.
The Chassis Reset Button – Reassigned
FlexKey, a newly implemented UEFI option, enables you to remap the rarely-used reset button on your chassis to a different function. You can reassign it to perform a safe boot, or to boot directly into the UEFI without needing to press the delete key. As an added bonus, FlexKey can also be set to switch the motherboard’s standby Aura lighting on or off.
Update Your BIOS Without CPU and DRAM
BIOS FlashBack is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.
Realtek Codec and Unique Design Features for Pristine, Powerful Audio
Prime TRX40-Pro utilizes a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek — the Realtek S1220. 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 the gain to ensure optimal volume range for your headphones.
DTS:X® Ultra adds a spatial audio feature to boost headphones and speakers for enhanced gaming, VR, and extended-reality experiences. DTS:X Ultra supports sound based on channels, scenes, and objects to allow for deeper sonic immersion in enabled content. It also provides post-processing enhancements and device-level tuning for DTS® codecs.
