With Ivy Bridge-E expected to make its debut this year (Q3 according to roadmap leaks) EVGA has decided to take another look at the LGA2011 platform. This in turn led to the making of a new motherboard based on the Intel X79 chipset, the X79 Dark.

Seen at CES 2013, EVGA's new LGA2011 board bears a black and red color theme and features an E-ATX form factor, 12+1 phase PWM, eight DDR3 memory slots (supporting up to 64 GB of RAM), ten SATA ports (six are SATA 6.0 Gbps), five PCI-Express x16 slots (accompanied by switches that disable/enable them), dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 connectors, Bluetooth, two eSATA ports, and 7.1-channel audio.

The X79 Dark also has an angled 24-pin power connector, a debug LED, EVBot support, plus Power, Reset and Clear CMOS buttons. The motherboard is expected to arrive towards the end of Q1, or in early Q2.

NVIDIA Forces EVGA to Pull EVBot Support from GTX 680 Classified

According to an Overclockers.com report, NVIDIA forced EVGA to remove voltage control, more specifically, support for its EVBot accessory, on its GeForce GTX 680 Classified graphics card. EVBot, apart from realtime monitoring, gives users the ability to fine-tune voltages, a feature NVIDIA doesn't want users access to. This design change was communicated by EVGA's Jacob Freeman, in response to a forum question a users who found his new GTX 680 Classified card to lack the EVBot header.

"Unfortunately newer 680 Classified cards will not come with the EVBot feature. If any questions or concerns please contact us directly so we can offer a solution," said Freeman. Hinting that NVIDIA is behind the design change, he said "Unfortunately we are not permitted to include this feature any longer," later adding "It was removed in order to 100% comply with NVIDIA guidelines for selling GeForce GTX products, no voltage control is allowed, even via external device." To make matters worse, Freeman said that EVGA has no immediate plans to cut prices of the GTX 680 Classified.

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SuperClocked and GTX 650 Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of NVIDIA partner-branded GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650. The EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SuperClocked, pictured below, is roughly as long as the company's GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670 graphics cards. It uses the EVGA Signature cooling solution, which features on several of EVGA's GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, and GTX 680 models. The box doesn't reveal much, except that the card only supports 2-way SLI, and packs 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 650, on the other hand, is much more compact. It uses a simple fan-heatsink to cool the GPU, instead of elaborate aluminum fin stacks. The heatsink appears to feature a spirally-projecting aluminum fin design, and is cooled by a 70 mm fan. The fan-heatsink is topped off with a shroud that spans the entire length of the card. Much like the GTX 660 SC, the box of this card doesn't reveal much. The GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650 are expected to launch on September 12 (give or take a day, in view of the new iPhone launch).

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Cooler Pictured

Launch of NVIDIA's next cash-cow graphics processor, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, is not too far away, and we're getting pictures of some of the first AIC partner-branded graphics cards based on it. The pictures reveal an EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Signature Edition graphics card cooling solution, complete with the GTX 660 Ti labeling.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti will look not much different from GeForce GTX 670 and GTX 680 Signature Edition graphics cards by the company, as we've been told on several occasions that the GTX 660 Ti is based on the same GeForce Kepler 104 GPU as the two. It's also likely that AIC partners could recycle the PCB design of their GTX 670 graphics cards, as they're generally extremely cost-effective.

EVGA Shows Off SuperNOVA PSU-Tweaking Software

EVGA's NEX 1500W PSU has been in the news for some time now, and we've known all through, that EVGA is giving it some software features, such as direct monitoring and fan-control. The first screenshots of the said software, called SuperNOVA, were released over the weekend, and they can blow you away.

The NEX 1500W ships with complex monitoring circuitry that interface with your PC over USB. The first two screenshots below reveal the real-time monitoring features of SuperNOVA, covering intricate details such as current output power (power drawn by the system), voltage and current readings for the +12V, +5V rails, efficiency measurement, temperatures, and fan-speeds. The measurements can be plotted on line-graphs to study patterns/history. The third screenshot shows couple of tweakable features, such as +12V rail voltage, fan-speed, fan-speed curve (vs. load and vs. temperature), and binding/splitting the +12V rails. The software can also be used to enable an "OC mode," which pushes maximum power output to 1650W, provided the input is 230V AC, and not 120V AC.

EVGA Rolls Out Pwnage 2 Mousepad

EVGA made an addition to its small lineup of gaming-grade Pwnage family of mousepads, with the Pwnage 2 (part number: E00B-00-000032). Not much different from the original Pwnage mousepad (E00B-00-000007), it launched with two other designs in June 2011, the Pwnage 2 features a slightly different surface graphic. Designed for laser and optical mice, the Pwnage 2 is designed with a low-friction surface for smooth glides, although EVGA didn't specify if it's specialized for speed or control. Its base is made of non-slip rubber. Its surface measures 13.75" x 10.25" (34.92 x 26 cm). At US $14.99 a pop, it's even priced the same as the original Pwnage.
