EVGA Teases Dual 1366 Socket Motherboard

Category: Motherboards
Posted: 01:34PM

If you are familiar with EVGA's monstrous X58 Classified 4-way SLi motherboard (and if you browse through here on a regular basis you probably should be) then you will likely be interested in a board the company teased through its twitter feed recently. The dual 1366 socket configuration product is said to come with all the features you would expect from a Classified model board, so some dual CPU overclocking action could certainly be on the cards. BSN* also suggests that four full width PCIe 2.0 x16 slots are a possibility, though we will have to wait until CES next week to find out, where EVGA will be releasing some more information. Of course, we will be there in Las Vegas to check it out.

Well, that's one way to ensure upgradeability - just drop in another processor!

Easy, it's just another Xeon 5500 board like all the other from Intel, Asus and SuperMicro. No, you can't use a Core i7 chip for it. The Xeon 5500 cost nearly double up compared to i7 or Xeon 3500. Yes it can have 2 chipsets for 72 PCIe lines. HP sells workstations with two chipsets.

EVGA doesn't make server boards.

They pretty much just did. Core i7s can't be run in a dual-processor configuration because they lack certain memory functionality. The Xeon X55** series is the server equivalent of i7 (5520 @ 2.66GHz), and is technically a "server" card. It all comes down to what you're using it for, though. More than likely, it will be for a server application.
