EVGA Showcases X79 Dark Motherboard at CES

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.
