You don’t need a puzzling paycheck and to reverse engineer a time prediction machine to take a glimpse of the future. Simply take a peek of the upcoming EVGA Classified Super Record 2 (SR-2) Motherboard and you’ll realize that the future is already here. If you thought that the existing EVGA X58 Classified 4-way SLI motherboard was wicked sick, then get ready to experience sheer overclocking brutality with the Classified SR-2.
Redefine extreme with the motherboard’s not one but TWO Intel LGA 1366 CPU sockets which allow two hyper-threaded Intel Xeon processors to work in tandem. This unique design allows enormous workload to be shared across a whole host of processing threads. If matched with the new Intel 6 core processors like the upcoming Intel Core i7-980X Extreme, you can go ahead and shout â€œIt’s alive!â€ coupled with a hideous evil scientist laugh as you celebrate how a 12-core and 24 thread monster come alive. EVGA even had to create a new motherboard form factor just to contain this beast’s specs.
Aside from the dual CPU sockets, this motherboard will also be showcasing all the next generation 4-way SLI, 8 Phase PWM, USB 3.0 and 6.0GB/s SATA III ports. Currently, this board supports Xeon Dual QPI Socket 1366 Processors and has an Intel 5520 Chipset, 12 DIMM Triple-Channel DDR3 1333MHz slots (max RAM support of 48GB), up to 4 way SLI or CrossFireX2 graphics card configuration. The EVGA Super Record 2 also features E-SATA ports, 2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports, and 8 Channel High Definition audio.
