PC Games Hardware took a picture of the ASUS Z8NA-D6 motherboard at CeBIT, this is the first ATX desktop motherboard that supports two LGA1366 processors.
The Z8NA-D6 supports Intel's new server processors Xeon 5500. If you use unbuffered RAM without ECC, the six memory slots can be filled with up to 24 GiByte. With registered memory even 48 GiByte are possible. As a chipset the 5500 Northbridge and the ICH10R Southbridge are used. Furthermore the board has a common graphics slot with 16 lanes. Power supply has been adjusted to the common connectors of desktop PSUs.
