USB 3.0 onboard

ASUS has launched its new ASUS P7F7-E WS SuperComputer motherboard.

The motherboard maximises transmission speeds by integrating USB 3.0, SATA 6G storage interface, and IEEE 1394b FireWire standard. It comes equipped with the LGA1156 socket and the latest Intel 3450 chipset with onboard graphics.

If you are up to run such a board for gaming, you can run up to four ATI CrossFireX cards or 3-way/2-way NVIDIA SLI cards. It is also possible to use NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture to support up to four NVIDIA Tesla cards with Clarkdale Processors.

However the motherboard's main job will be to supports high-performance computing for life sciences research, engineering and financial modeling with its NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture.

By using Tesla cards with built-in Clarkdale processors, the ASUS P7F7-E WS SuperComputer generates up to 4 Teraflops of processing power from a total of 960 CUDA parallel processing cores. No word on price yet.
