Early this morning we published our Sandy Bridge E review, as well as our first X79 motherboard review: ASUS' P9X79 Pro. We've got more SNB-E content in the works, but if you're eager for a look EVGA's brand new lineup of X79 boards check out the video below. Starring in the video is EVGA's own Jacob Freeman, a long time friend of ours.

    Why is this guy treating us like we're retards? Enthusiast users could have built a system in the time he's been rambling at us like a fool. No KIDDING there's a user's manual inside the damned box... yeesh... We can't count how many ports there are?

    Hot boards but for the love of all that's digital, don't insult our intelligence...

    It's an unboxing video, give him a break. Some people want to see what's in the box and visually pointing out the features helps to better market to those more visually inclined.

    EVGA has not brought out the SR-3 yet because that fastest Xeon E7 is only 2.4 Ghz with a price tag of $4227 and that is a single socket CPU . the E7 4800 MP 2-4 sockets I could not find a price on those MP and the 8800 series ( I guess if you have to ask you should not be looking at them) as many sockets as the can put on a motherboard which its self is in the $10,000 range. So after reading the E7 Xeon range you would be looking at a $10,000+ Xeon 7E MP socket computer. I myself am waiting for the Octa (8 core ) desktop X79 EVGA Classified which should overclock as well as the 6 core since they are 8 core CPU's with 2 cores disabled now. I cannot wait to see how they work on Windows HPC Server. I doent think games will work very well but I bet Folding @Home will gave the VideoCard folding a run for their money. EVGA can usually perform mericales so maybe they will be able to make a mobo run a pair of desktop CPU's but I guess only time will tell.
