Wow, a steep price, but nice specs.
damn that price is steeeeeep
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?
Whenever I see OPs avatar, I feel slightly disturbed.... It freaks me out...
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
a gaming mobo yet its running cpu's meant for servers...
more appeal to the gullible.
USE THE SAME CPU'S THAT ARE USED IN WOW SERVERS
oh I see it's apparently used for.. okay then
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
my new pc (which should come tommorow and gets builded tuesday) will also have 2 usb3.0 connectors.
usb3.0 is out quite some time now
It's really useful for rendering.
