Asus New Motherboard Supports Seven PCI-E x16 Cards



+ Add a Comment


It would be great if Maximum PC could compare this:

ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer LGA 1366 Intel X58
Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition Bloomfield 3.33GHz (or whatever)
PNY Quadro FX5600 1.5GB GDDR3 600Mhz DualDVI PCI-E x16 (or equivalent)
3 x eVGA GeForce GTX 295 CO-OP 1792MB DDR3 PCI-E (or equivalent)
Leadtek's WinFast PxVC1100 / Canopus' FIRECODER Blu
TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress + Toshiba's SpursEngine plug-in (*)

To a professional encoding farm.

Note: As far as I know Sorenson Squeeze does not have CUDA nor SpursEngine plug-ins :-(



Lets see 7 GTX 295's for 14 F@H clients at once. :-) There's just the small issue of paying for it.

If you were to put 7 single slot nvidia cards (like 7 9800GTs :D) and fold with them your going to have a hell of of a machine (and no sli because folding cannot use SLI or xfire)



The only thing I can think to do with this board (other than what is sugested by MaxPC) is to put a TON of HDDs or SSDs in a huge RAID array... as for the dude who is thinking about 7 video cards, no game can use that many GPUs, as for apps... maby if you ran F@H?...



Why not all of the above

Tri SLI for Gaming

dedicated PhysX card

and 3 GPUs for Folding at home...

All at the same time.

Crysis at 60FPS+physics WHILE Folding.

Really,where can you find a cpu that could handle 7 video cards! And besides, who needs 7 of them anyways. It is a nice concept though.....Hey! They Probably made this for windows 7!



 yes but can it play Crysis (cause you knwo workstation boards and consumer boards don't always get along at the application level)
