4WAY SLI with seven PCI-Express slots

In order to put Asus' P6T7 WS SuperComputer motherboard to shame, EVGA is preparing a new X58 based Classified motherboard that features no less than seven PCI-Express x16 slots and features support for 4-way SLI.

The new EVGA X58 Classified 4WAY SLI should bring some joy to Folding@Home fans, but the bad side of the story is that it needs a PC chassis that has at least ten expansion slots as this one is based on XL-ATX form factor. The motherboard is based on Intel's X58/ICH10R chipset, has a 10+3-phase power design, and supports Intel's Core i7 processors. It will probably have two NF200 chips in order to get those seven PCI-Express x16/x8 slots running and feature six memory slots for up to 24GB of DDR3 1600MHz+ triple channel fun.

The rest of the specifications include support for 2-way, 3-way and 4-way SLI, twelve USB 2.0 port, two FireWire and two Gigabit LAN ports, eight SATA II and one eSATA port as well as the integrated 7.1-channel audio.

The feature list continues with EVGA Vdroop control, EVGA Dummy OC, EVGA E-LEET tuning utility, EVGA EZ Voltage read points, PCIe disable jumpers, on board CPU temperature monitor, EVGA ECP V2 support and EVGA EVbot support.

The motherboard is available for pre-order over at EVGA, with a US $499.99 price tag. You can check it out here.
