While it has traditionally dabbled in motherboards with Nvidia chipsets, EVGA is cooking up a new mobo based on Intel's next-gen X58 Express chipset. In case you haven't been paying attention lately, the X58 will complement Intel's Core i7 processors (a.k.a. Bloomfield, a.k.a. Nehalem) when they come out next month.
Here's what you can expect from the X58 SLI FTW motherboard, in EVGA's words:
Supports Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 Processors Intel(R) X58 Express Chipset with the ICH10R EVGA VDroop Control 100% Solid State Capacitors 6 DIMM triple-channel DDR3 Enthusiast layout supporting 2-way, 3-way SLI and CrossFireX 10 SATA II 3.0GB/s ports (1 e-SATA) EVGA E-LEET Tuning Utility
Check out the image gallery below for a high-res shot of the board and a smaller picture of its rear I/O panel. The board will hit stores in November, and it should fight it out with competitors like Asus' P6T Deluxe.
