ASUS, the leading provider of innovative motherboard solutions, today unveiled the ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer motherboard. Built around the Intel P55 Express chipset, it features the new LGA1156 socket for next-generation Intel Core i5 processors and DDR3-2133 (O.C.) memory for outstanding yet cost-effective performance. To enable multiple-GPU rendering, the motherboard supports both 3-way and 2-way graphics card configurations based on SLI or CrossFireX technology. Additionally, it leverages the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture to support three NVIDIA Tesla cards and one NVIDIA Quadro card for 250 times more computing power.

I think it's traditional for ASUS to host its website on a 33.6k modem.

Nice lane starved supercomputer board ASUS, how about an Atom version next?

For P55, it is one of the least lane starved I've seen. Not many even offer 2 PCI-E x16 slots at the full x16 bandwidth like this board, or 4 PCI-E x16 slots at x8...

It's still just sharing the same amount of lanes but splitting them with an NF200 chip though. May be useful to some, but WS screams X58 in my book.

The P6T6 WS use the NF200 for the same thing...

And hell, the P6T WS only had two x16 slots...
