  1. EVGA to unveil dual socket LGA 1366 motherboard at CES Keeping PC enthusiasts on their toes, EVGA has provided a peek at a new motherboard which it will present next week at CES 2010. As you can see below, EVGA has made a dual socket LGA 1366 board, one that's said to have all the bells and whistles of a Classified series product (overclocking feature galore) so to please extreme users.

    I believe the dictionary example of "Excess" features a picture of the EVGA dual socket board running Gulftown's oc'ed. Should have the ubergeeks monitors' looking like a painter's radio in no time!

    hello ...

    that EVGA Mboard is quite impressive, but let's not be too overhype & wait if the softs need that kind of hardware.

    i've been enjoying & leeching a lot on steam these days, bought 4 games already.

    cheers!
  4. Software? omg no I want this for FSX to run smoothly. If it can run it with 2 cpus tagged up im all over it. I thought my problems went away with the new I7 I have overclocked to 4.5 but that can't even run it smoothly with everything cranked. FSX is so cpu hungry! I can't wait to see the benchmarks are on it.

    2. Near impossible to overhype a EVGA mobo.
    3. Yes, quite impressive...will be even more impressive seeing ALL the board!

    Motherboard does look really nice! Can't really justify for myself at this point though.

    Just saw the pic of the whole board....
    345mm x 330+mm size.....8+3 digital pwm power phase PER cpu, 7 PCIe x16 slots (how long before someone hooks up 4 HD5970's !) , 64 PCIe lanes via 2 NF200 chips.
    All you need is a power supply that can run it all ! ( 24 pin + 2 x 8pin EPS 12v + 6+2 pin PCIe)

    This board isn't about surfing the net and playing Crysis any more than the Classified 200 boards are. This is purely an exercise in keeping EVGA's brand linked to the sharp end of extreme benchmarking and overclocking. In less than four years they have gone to silkscreening their logo on generic nVidia 650 Ultra and 680i SLI boards to designing their own mobo's that are on the must have list for the LN2 and phase change crowd.
    My next system build will be P55- EVGA FTW......Asus and Gigabyte can have their onboard USB3 and SATA 6Gb - I'll buy an add-in card.

    I have EVGA 780 i FTW. It is nothing but high quality, same goes for my EVGA GTX 275 video card. and yes it runs crysis pretty well. My next board will be an X58 classified. But not for another one or two years. I always wait for this stuff to get cheap.
