    ASUS is releasing today its first motherboard based on the NVIDIA Quadro Certified nForce 680i LT chipset. The new ASUS P5NT WS is intended to work with all socket LGA775 Intel Dual-core/Quad-core CPUs (upcoming Intel 45nm CPUs also supported), DDR2 800/667/533 memory and two NVIDIA SLI graphic cards with Dual x16 speeds on the same platform. Certified to use Quadro graphics, ASUS P5NT WS features three PCI-Express x16 slots, one PCI-X slot, six SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, two Gigabit Ethernet adapters, one ATA port and integrated RealTek ALC888 8ch. HD Audio. The ASUS P5NT WS is also fitted with solid state capacitors and unique heat-pipe cooling.

    nForce 680i LT is a trimmed down version of nForce 680i. Both chipsets have basically the same performance, but the 680i LT suffers from:
    • Triple PCIe x16 Card Support
    • Dual-LAN
    • DDR2-1200 Support
    Apparently ASUS has made a board with the same features as the 680i, since all the limitations of 680i LT are presented in P5NT WS.

    this board is not aimed at gamers. check out the 64bit PCI slot which is even accessible when SLI is used...

    eVGA had already released LT. Is that what you are thinking of?
