Cebit 2009: Seven PCI-E slots, massively parallel


Back in October, ASUS impressed the world with the announcement of its P6TS WS Revolution motherboard, packed with six PCI-E 2.0 slots and a single nForce 200 SLI chip. At CeBIT, the company has outdone itself once again with the announcement of a massively parallel board with more number crunching capability than ever before.

The ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer is a newly announced X58 motherboard that sports no less than seven PCI-E 2.0 slots controlled by two nForce 200 SLI chips. More specifically, four of these slots are x16 and three are x8 electrical, and 3-way SLI and CrossFire are also supported.

Additional features of this board include six memory slots for up to 24GB of DDR3, six SATA II ports, two SAS ports supporting RAID 0, 1, 10, two eSATA ports and the usual 7.1 onboard sound and dual Gigabit Ethernet.

Obviously, this board brings some optimistic hope for Folding@home enthusiasts, as it has been said to be the "best choice for intensive parallel computing demand." No pricing and availability information have been revealed yet, but with the P6T6 WS Revolution averaging $370 in the US market, that should give a rough estimate of what to expect.
