At Geforce LAN 6 event


During the Nvidia Geforce LAN 6 event held at Alameda, California, EVGA showed off its first motherboard based on the upcoming Intel LGA2011 X79 chipset, the XL-ATX form-factor EVGA X79 Classified aka E779.

The new Sandy Bridge-E loving motherboard feature standard red/black color scheme, five PCI-Express 3.0 ready x16 slots, single PCI-Express x1, four DDR3 memory slots ready for some quad-channel fun, two SATA 6.0Gbps and four SATA 3.0Gbps ports, ten USB 3.0 ports, two eSATA ports, integrated 7.1 channel audio, Bluetooth, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and bunch of other overclocking friendly features including EV BOT connector, on-board Power, Reset and Clear CMOS buttons, PCI-Express disable switches and much more.

The motherboard is cooled by a rather large, but still thin and passive heatsink. In addition to the E779 motherboard, EVGA plans to introduce two more, the E777 aka EVGA X79 FTW and the E775 aka EVGA X79 SLI.
