Lightbulb EVGA's Dual LGA-1366 motherboard gets a name..EVGA Classified SR-2!

Officially announced...EVGA Classified SR-2 (Super Record 2) MSRP: $599.99 USD

Quote:
We are proud to present the EVGA Classified SR-2, the absolute ultimate for the extreme user. It takes everything that made the X58 Classified 4-way SLI motherboard great and doubled it up. Now you can experience the ultimate in overclocked multithreaded performance by way of Dual 1366 sockets which allow for hyper-threaded Intel Xeon CPU’s to be combined together for massive amounts of workload to be spread across a multitude of processing threads.

When combined with compatible Intel 6 Core CPU’s, you create a massive system capable of up to 24 CPU threads of compute power. If you want future-proof, this is it!

We have literally created a new form factor to fit all the amazing things on one board. Whether you are an extreme gamer, overclocker, power user, workstation user, server admin, folder/cruncher, or just a PC enthusiast; this is the ultimate motherboard. This board will encode your movies, render your images, or even load your games faster than you ever thought possible.

From what appears to be a New Years Eve gift to hardware enthusiasts EVGA posted a snapshot of what appears to be a Dual Socketed 1366 motherboard. This is a departure from EVGA being a manufacturer of only single processor motherboards for consumers.

This is their first DP [Dual processor] board and we look forward to seeing this board at CES. From what we can gather this board will have 12 DIMM slots and Two Processor sockets and a Digital PWM similar to their popular overclocking Classified board. It will also have an Intel Tylersburg 5520 and two NF200's which may indicate the possibility for 4 full width PCI-E 2.0 X16 graphics card slots. If anything, we don't necessarily expect this board to be a server board, but we do expect this board to break a lot of records with being a Dual processor board and most likely enabling users to actually overclock them. This just wouldn't be an EVGA board if it didn't enable overclocking.

In the Twitter post EVGA wrote, "The Future... Stay Tuned CES 2010!"

We'll definitely stay tuned and look forward to providing our readers with more pictures and details about this new board.

As its unveil date approaches, more info about EVGA's overclocking-friendly dual-socket LGA 1366 motherboard comes about, the latest being an official confirmation that USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 Gbps supports are among the included features.

As seen below, the two red SATA ports are those capable of 6.0 Gbps transfer speeds, while the two USB 3.0 ports are tucked in the back panel, enabling theoretical maximum speeds of 5.0 Gbps. The EVGA board also packs seven PCI-Express x16 slots, 12 DDR3 memory slots, and is set to be officially introduced at CES.

Its a shame they feel the need to go 2x NF200. Surely they can go 2x 5520 chipsets, like some server boards, to get 72 proper lanes of PCIe 2.0. Even if 2x 5520 is more expensive than 2x NF200, i doubt that the prospective purchaser of this mobo is going to be fiscally limited.

Clever marketing from Evga however there is nothing really revolutionary about this board at all. Most current servers run boards similar to this minus the OC features. Oh and it will certainly be a wallet killer.

True true, servers have been doing dual sockets for as long as i can remember. Curious to see how they will market this type of board and of course its feature-set and price.

Yeah wonder if it will become something that is wanted by overclockers.

Man I wana see the performance of that thing with all top of the line parts.

It will certainly come in handy for 3DWank benchers. The PCI-E lanes can feed the GPUs and the dual socket S1366 CPUs will nab u WR or 2.

So in other words, instead of getting a pointless i7 980x, I could get another i7 920 + this board?! woot!

I'd really like to see a dual LGA1156 board (which would be like a modern BP6). Unfortunately Intel has probably made that impossible to stop people making cheap dual i5 systems.

The "BBQ" part of that may turn out to be correct. A pair of 6-core CPUs combined with quad-SLI or quad-CrossFire (because you'd want lots of GPUs in a system this good) will probably produce quite a bit of heat.
