The last motherboard announcement from EVGA came in November of last year when the company unveiled its X79 lineup. It's been relatively quiet since then, until now. Figuring four months was enough of a hiatus, EVGA is now letting the world know about its brand spanking new Classified SR-X, an ambitious slice of silicon designed to set a "new standard for what is considered an enthusiast motherboard," starting with dual-CPU support.
Yes folks, this beastly board is built around Intel's C606 chipset and supports up to two Intel Xeon socket 2011 processors. It has a dozen DIMM slots for up to a whopping 96GB of DDR3-800/1066/1333/1600MHz+ memory, four SATA 3Gbps ports, two SATA 6Gbps ports, RAID 0/1/5/10/ and JBOD support, ten USB 2.0 ports, half a dozen USB 3.0 ports, two GbE LAN, 8-channel audio, seven PCI-E x16 slots with support for 4-way SLI and CrossFireX, a pair of mini SAS ports, and even Firewire.
That's just the tip of the iceberg, believe it or not. EVGA also boasts 300 percent more gold content, a 2x6 Phase PWM, onboard Bluetooth, PCI-E disable switches, triple BIOS support, EZ Voltage read points, 100 percent POSCAP capacitors, DIMM disable switches, and a whole bunch more.
The only things that are missing are price and release date details.
