At Computex this Spring, EVGA told us about its upcoming dual-socket X79 motherboard, but it kept the product away from from prying eyes. Well, the company has now given everyone a little sneak peak via its forums:
The picture doesn't show a whole lot except for an LGA2011 socket and its four accompanying DIMM slots—one for each memory channel. I also see a rotated motherboard power connector and hardware power and reset buttons. X79-based systems will be a rung above today's Z68 rigs on the food chain, so the upscale enthusiast amenities make sense.
Based on what we were told at Computex, the rest of the board will be unveiled this fall.
