Looks sweet! We should hear more at CES.
Asus did it last year in ATX, let us hope this is mATX
If only they made dual-Nehalem motherboards you could overclock... I've not seen one yet!
there is an art to it, its not impossible..
The EVGA twitter feed said that it would be a full-blown Classified motherboard, so I would expect that it would have very similar (if not the same) overclocking features as the single socket Classifieds (E759, E760, E761, E762). It even has a rear IO connection for the EVBot.
Rumors on XS has it that this bord will be revealed thursday at CES.
Untill then, pictures:
A member on XS pointed out this connector:
Which would go well with this EVGA product:
EVGA EVBot Tuning Utility
This size is funny though. I see it as a E-XL-ATX board (pic from evga.com):
Looking at all the power plugs, I have no idea what kind of PSU will power this board.
And I see a IDE connector, wtf?
I would love for BT to review this monster:
No info on EVGA's own site yet.
Look at all those PCIe 16x slots!
Too bad it's not a dual IOH config. That would be an amazing about of PCIe bandwidth on a board like that.
If you look up the single CPU Classified 4-way SLi -- it also requires 9 PCI slots, and the current "compatibility" list only lists 4 cases, of which only 2 I'd consider (Corsair Obsidian, and Lian-Li PC80). Eitherway, cool board, great folding platform, shame there are no inexpensive (sub-$900) 24GB DDR3 triple channel kits around.
Looks pretty swish to me, finally a use for all those retarded 1kW+ PSU's!
I'd actually expect that board to be even larger than the XL-ATX. There's the single-socket four-way SLI Classified board that already meets the XL-ATX-"standard", and this seems even wider.
And if the guys at EVGA aren't totally nuts, those power connectors are PCI-e-connectors. That's what I'd do, anyway, it's the same +12 V anyway, so why would they require some special PSU...
I'll keep my OCable dually, thanks.
Mine's easier to run, if not quite so extreme.
fold, game, encode and cook something at the same time with the amount of heat that think will produce.
As the resident bit-tech/CPC dual-processor nut I'm already talking to EVGA about a review sample. Should know more in a few days.
Holy crap, don't think that will even fit in my 840 classic
Oh wow, green PCB, that's something i haven't seen in a while.
And heres me thinking the original Classified was totally retarded...
I can't say shite. My project is an octal core based on an MSI K9ND Speedster. We're trying to update microcode for Shanghais now.
If you compare the screwholes on the size-sketch and the picture above, it seems to be XL-ATX.
Yearh that seems right. I doubt any single existing PSU would power this bord with 4-way SLI/CF though?
