Take advantage of the most significant architectural change in the x86 architecture in 13 years, the Intel Core i7. The EVGA X58 SLI introduces a new era for extreme performance. It is an X58-based motherboard that supports Intel's new generation extreme performance Core i7 Processors and both SLI and CrossFireX! Ten SATA ports with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 gives you plenty of storage options and the ability to use enterprise quality hard drives with speeds of up to 10,000 RPMs. Memory support includes up 6 DIMMs of Triple Channel DDR3 memory at speeds up to 1600MHz*. Its Super Hybrid Engine delivers world-record breaking performance or radically reduces power consumption depending on your need. Intel has brought back Hyperthreading technology and combined it with a native quad-core design to give support for 8 seperate threads in the new LGA1366 / Socket B CPU interface and their replacement for the old Front Side Bus technology, QuickPath Interconnect provides a system bus speed of up to 6.4GT/s. The three PCI-Express 2.0 slots take full advantage of either 2 or 3 graphics cards.
