EVGA lift the skirt on their X79 Express motherboard, stand over a vent and it blows in the air, oops!

EVGA tease X79 Express board, oh my!

| Motherboards News | Posted: Jul 21, 2011 2:00 am

EVGA have just pulled a Marilyn Monroe and teased the world with their latest X79 motherboard. The picture below shows off the LGA2011 socket as well as two DIMMs on each side. These four DIMMs are part of the new quad-channel, 256-bit memory controller which will require all four DIMMs to be occupied to take advantage of it. The advantage? DDR3-1600 memory support with a theoretical system bandwidth of an insane 50GB/sec, DDR3-1866 will see 58.3GB/sec whilst those who want to live life on the edge and want DDR3-2133 will see 66.6GB/sec.

EVGA's spice on their board is an 8-pin CPU power, 24-pin angled power plug, nickel-plated heatpipe leading to an aluminum heatsink. EVGA reps are keeping their mouths zipped, but this board should arrive in time to dance along side AMD's upcoming Bulldozer which is expected to arrive in Q4 2011, unless delayed into 2012.
