EVGA is working on Intel X58 chipset based motherboards and Theo Valich has found out some more information about these boards. The EVGA X58 motherboard will be the first motherboard from EVGA that doesn't use a chipset from NVIDIA but it will have the nForce 200 SLI processor to enable full Triple-SLI functionality.
The board is designed by ex-EPoX engineers and will feature limited lifetime warranty and EVGA's famous 90-day Step Up program. Besides EVGA's regular X58 motherboard, the firm also plans to release a "Shamino Special" overclocking edition by Christmas - this motherboard was designed by overclocker Shamino.
The motherboard is being designed by ex-EPoX engineering team, bringing plentiful of overclocking capabilities, Digital PWM, and fully solid-state caps across the board. Special attention is being given to providing top juice to graphics cards, so if you decide to go for the gold and grab 3-SLI setup with three water-cooled GTX270 boards, be our guest.
But, that is not all. This is the first motherboard, which will be followed by ultimate motherboard for this Christmas, no questions asked. The enthusiast motherboard is actually being designed by a world class overclocker. Yes, the one and only Peter Tan a.k.a. Shamino, who is making “Shamino special”.
