Icon17 EVGA dual socket LGA 1366 board full motherboard pic!


Seen below, the big boy board supports LGA 1366 Xeon processors, packs 12 DDR3 memory slots (six per CPU), digital PWM, and no less than seven PCI-Express x16 slots hooked up to two Nvidia N200 SLI bridge chips. The upcoming motherboard also packs eights SATA ports, 7.1 channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, a debut LED and a passion for overclocking. According to EVGA, the board will have Classified-grade OC features so enthusiasts should be quite happy playing around with it. More info, hopefully including price, will be offered later this week so stick around to get the full scoop.

Looking at the price of "normal" classifieds, at least $600 would be my price-guess :-s

Don't you think these wil be produced in limited numbers ? who needs a dual socket mega OC'able, multi GPU solution ?

Me Me Me !!!

J/K : this is a niche product, comparable with skulltrail. Still : quite a few people wanted to bench skulltrail in the end....

I don't "need" it, but I could certainly use it as it was intended.

Bigadv workloads will use up to 32 cores... 32-core Opteron server takes around ~14 minutes a run, 100 runs to complete. A 12 core 24 thread monster built on this motherboard could potentially halve that time if overclocked nicely... result would make for 220,000 PPD figures even without a GPU.

The board can also be very interesting for (medical) imaging applications like the FASTRA (which btw is a "budget" minded system, but with higher budgets this monster board could be very interesting).
The only problem is that you'll need 7 single slot GPU's or a huge water cooling setup.
7 X2 GPU's would even be better . 14 GPU's in one pc, 7168 stream processors, sweet ^^

You might as well buy your own power plant to power such beast

FASTRA relies on GPU power; no need for more CPUs

We can do better than that : enter FASTRA2

Notice our sponsor Tones (and my friend Manu) in picture LOL (no, not the Geek of the video )

I like the 64bit bios especially, an industry first in desktop compunting
