A photo of Gigabyte's nForce 780i based GA-780SLI-DS5 motherboard was published on a Taiwanese computer forum.

With three PCI Express x16 slots the motherboard features support for Tri SLI and there are also two PCI slots and a PCI Express x1 slot. Other features include dual Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire, six USB 2.0 ports, 7.1 channel audio and perhaps eSATA.
As this is a DS5 board it won’t have all the features of Gigabyte’s high-end DQ6 range, hence the smaller heatpipe cooling solution, although it has a rather interesting shape suggesting that the earlier reports about the N200 PCI Express 2.0 controller is indeed the real deal. Other features include a six SATA connectors, a single IDE connector, a further four USB 2.0 ports via two headers, a parallel port header and a FireWire header
