EVGA X79 Classified, a bit more

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Picture, mouthwatering spec


Intel is being quiet about Sandy Bridge E, but we’ve already told you everything that needs to be told about these new six core processors where the top one is called Core i7 Extreme 3960X works at 3.3GHz base frequency and overclocks all the way to 3.9GHz on turbo.

The motherboard and chipset of choice are X79 based and EVGA has already shown some images and demonstrated its EVGA X79 Classified board at Geforce LAN. We have a new picture and a few more details about the board.

It supports native 4-way SLI, packs 100 percent POSCAP capacitors, right-angled 24-pin power connector and onboard Bluetooth, something that we rarely see on enthusiast motherboards.

We see a single PCI slot that can do well for some older devices and a PCIe 1X as well. The board is capable of accommodating 4 DDR3 memory modules.

The board and the rest of the Sandy Bridge E platform should launch in November. The picture is below.

It's a great looking motherboard and if you want a sneak peek at the EVGA X79 FTW motherboard you can find it here: http://evga.com/jacobf/

How about a next generation dual CPU motherboard from EVGA?: https://plus.google.com/102886105218466812433/posts/VMJmazqQjAL

But you've got lots of PCI-E slots...can you say 4 way SLI?

Another useless placement of the x1 slot. Virtually useless in any setup except if you maybe run a thin 1 slot water cooling block on your video card.
