    No doubt on X58 the dual NF200's worked a treat. But X58 used pci-e 2 with 32 lanes for video cards. X79 uses pci-e 3 still with 32 lanes but it is also the equivalent of 64 pci-e 2 lanes, hence why on X79 an NF200 is going to add latency and halve bandwidth

    I personally own a sr-2 that i purchased a few months ago did it all out 4 gtx 580s with 2 intel xeon 5650s and so on this is great news for anyone looking to upgrade me personally i only built my sr-2 for gaming and since right now there isnt a game i cant run i dont see the need to waiste money to go to this hopefully theyll still support the sr-2 and continue to give us bios updates etc.

    No they would use a server chipset instead of X79

    Nf200 is fine for X58 but a bottleneck on X79. And as the article says X79 it's either going to be two X79's or the server version as was outlined in a post above

    Maybe it will have the new NF300 instead of NF200 to overcome the bottleneck for X79 motherboard but I'm just guessing or dreaming though...Who know...LOL

    For first person shooters, 6 displays puts the crosshairs right on the monitor bezel. Wider view angle is better depending on what you're doing.
