The EVGA W555 made a brief cameo appearance at CES but the guys at bit-tech managed to get some fantastic tidbits of information about the new workstation/server board. Notably, that it was designed with overclocking and enthusiast level performance in mind.
The quick and dirty facts are that it features dual overclockable LGA1366 sockets, each with a dedicated bank of six DDR3 slots. To top it off, it features seven PCI-E 2.0 slots with dynamic lane configurations and will be certified for SLI and CrossFire. Underneath the massive heatsink/fan are reportedly two nForce 200 controllers as well as an Intel 5520 chip. Further, it features eight SATA ports, 6 running on a 3Gb/sec and two running at 6Gb/sec.
Basically, you couldn’t really ask for too much more out of a motherboard of this caliber. Unfortunately, pricing and other model configurations haven’t been released. The board itself is to be released later this year.
