    Considering when I first got my non deluxe standard X58 motherboard it cost $300, this is actually REALLY cheap. 48GB RAM is possible on this mobo?

    No way, that's a mobo that even WOW players will worship.

    Too bad home versions of windows only support one processor.

    WoW being pretty low standards, running well on older less powerful PCs, I don't really get what you're saying

    The SR-2 is old news, the story was from 4 months ago. A lot of people have dual Xeon rigs with this thing now.


    Consumer Core i7/i5 processors only have one QPI link and so only work in single socket motherboards. Only Xeons have two QPIs.

    Anyway, this can do 12 cores/24 threads, 48GB of DDR3, and quad SLI. All those with 4 GTX 480s and a few SSDs = incredible

    Actually, this isn't impressive at all.

    Xeons for gaming? That's a real waste of processor, and it won't be as awesome for games as it first appears. They're marketed as server CPUs for a reason.

    So why would a server motherboard need quad SLI support?

    Who are they trying to sell this to?

    That's what I was wondering when I first read about it.
    I mean, there's the super-geeks who will probably spend a whole lot of money to build some insane powerful PC out of this, and brag about their 48GB of ram which essentially has the tiniest benefit over 8GB in a PC when it comes to games and applications.
    Otherwise, what's the point right now?

    You wouldn't need to upgrade your PC for quite a while with those specs. That's a monster of a computer.

    You should have named this thread: "If Carlsberg did motherboards..."

    600 MB/s reading speed, I presume? That's fast as hell.

    On another note, I never knew USB 3.0 already existed, is it used in anything yet or still in a prototype phase? Either way, just the name can make me tremble with excitement [​IMG]

    It's really useful for rendering.
