Photo of LGA1366 dual-socket eVGA board
A day or two ago we already reported that eVGA is working on a dual-socket (LGA 1366) motherboard. A new photo appeared.
This will be an uber high-end tweakers dual LGA-1366 motherboard based on the Intel 5500 "Tylersburg" chipset with the usual ICH10R Southbridge.
Considering you'll need SMP support the dual-socket motherboard will have to support the Xeon 5500 series. Probably, a future high-end Intel Core family CPU is released that is capable of dual-socket setups, too. The picture reveals two LGA-1366 sockets, each powered by an 8-phase digital PWM circuit. Each socket is wired to six DDR3 DIMM slots supporting triple-channel memory for that socket.
The board has 7 PCIe slots and to feed them the motherboard is equipped with two NF200 (NVIDIA) bridge chips to add additional PCIe lanes. It is now rumoured that this amazing board will also have an amazing price tag .. over 500 EUR.
