A sneak peek at Asus' P6T Deluxe Nehalem motherboard
Intel's next-gen Nehalem processor has yet to be released, but a compatible motherboard has already arrived in The Benchmarking Sweatshop. Behold Asus' P6T Deluxe:
At first glance, the P6T doesn't look all that different from current motherboards
Nehalem requires an all-new 1366-pin Land Grid Array (LGA)
The P6T also features three DDR3 memory channels with two DIMM slots per channel
A Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) controller from Marvell makes things interesting on the storage front.
Three PCI Express x16 slots for all your multi-GPU needs
Little has changed in the port cluster
SideShow returns with the OC Palm add-on
We can't say much about the board yet, but I can reveal that it comes with an OC Palm device that looks identical to the ScreenDuo SideShow accessory that Asus bundled with its Vista Edition motherboards back in 2007. Asus has apparently been reading my blog, because the OC Palm gives users a measure of hardware monitoring support in addition to offering tweaking and overclocking controls. Expect a full review of the P6T Deluxe when Nehalem hits.
