Default Hands on with EVGA's Dual S1366 Mobo, Plus two Intel 6-Core CPUs Cooled by LN2

These six-core processors are, as our readers already know from our features going way back, supported by 12MB of L3 cache, an improved memory controller and also have the addition of AES cryptographic instructions, all within the same TDP as the previous 45nm quad-core generation. And again, they are fully compatible with almost all existing UP and DP LGA1366 boards, provided that you update the BIOS prior to installing these new CPUs.


Why bother about whether the multiplier can be unlocked when there are no boards to overclock the dual LGA1366 socket Intel CPUs? Well, that is about to change, too, come mid-April. Those of you who visited the EVGA stand at CeBIT may have seen a well guarded secret, EVGA's upcoming mainboard to support exactly that on top of all possible bells and whistles that an ultra high-end mainboard can support. This is big, long awaited and overdue news. We had hoped for Intel's Skulltrail 2 to arrive, or at the very least, something from Asus or Gigabyte. But EVGA, despite its smaller size, accepted the challenge and stepped up to get this ambitious mainboard out.

that WPrime 1024M score was done at 5.5Ghz and is good for a number 4 spot in the WR ranking: http://hwbot.org/rankings/benchmark/.../world_records

Might wish to change your thread title, this board does not accept 980X chips, only Xeon 2xQPI processors will work.

Some article info seems wrong... claims 96GB but EVGA has said 48GB max... only 1333MHz claimed although can probably go a bit higher.

$599 is actually quite alright given that the Classified X58 is $400

Honestly, I thought it was going to hit around the $700+ mark. Not that 599 is cheap, I just dont think anyone expected it to be less

Well, it's not as if $400 is "allright" for a single socket motherboard. But yeah, I guess this was expected. Easily makes it the most expensive dual board out there too...
