EVGA teases X99 chipset motherboard at Computex 2014

Written by Slobodan Simic

Keeps the specifications under tight wraps

Although it kept the juicy details under wraps, members of the press were allowed to take some pictures of an  "unnamed EVGA motherboard" at Computex 2014. Although not officially named by EVGA, it is quite clear that we are looking at EVGA's X99 motherboard which is aimed to be used with Intel's upcoming Haswell-E CPUs.

Judging by the color scheme, this will most likely end up with X99 FTW branding. It features the LGA 2011-3 socket for upcoming Intel Haswell-E CPUs, a total of eight DDR4 DIMM slots, four on each side of the socket for quad-channel memory support, probably an impressive VRM currently hidden by a massive heatsink which will eventually change since this is just a prototype, five PCI-Express 3.0 x16 and single PCI-Express 3.0 x4 slots, 24+8-pin power connectors for the CPU as well as additional 6-pin PEG connector for expansion cards, 10 SATA 6Gbps ports, bunch of USB 3.0 ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet and quite a few "overclocking friendly features" including V-Check Points, Diagnostic LED and on-board buttons.

EVGA is still keeping silent on practically everything regarding this motherboard as it is probably under tight wraps from Intel, but eventually we will probably hear more as we draw closer to the rumored September launch of the Intel's Haswell-E HEDT platform.

The picture below was teased by EVGA's own Jacob Freeman over at Twitter.
