Yet more X58 eye candy has begun circulating as of the weekend, with Expreview posting up a mass of photos showing off ASUS' new P6T6 WS Revolution workstation oriented motherboard; shots courtesy of XFastest.

The board looks much like the P6T WS, which ASUS announced just recently as being ready for action come Core i7 launch day. However, one significant difference with this bad boy brother is the whopping amount of PCIe x16 slots on tap; no less than six! We're still not sure, however, as to how the bandwidth is shared across all of these, but undoubtedly there's some form of additional switching chip implemented next to the Southbridge (hence the larger heatsink) to assist in controlling the bandwidth levels of the slots, depending on which are used at any one time.
