    EVGA today named its dual-LGA1366 enthusiast-grade motherboard, so far known by the codename W555. After a short contest on the company's forums, the company came up with "EVGA Classified SR-2" for its name. SR stands for "super record" and 2 denoting the dual-socket design. The Classified SR-2 is a an entusiast-grade (read: overclocker friendly) implementation of the Tylersburg platform, supporting Intel socket LGA1366 processors with two QPI links (2P Xeon, etc.) As an addition, the board allows you to do something that's difficult on typical 2P server motherboards: it allows you to mix different models of Xeon processors, provided they're based on the same architecture, and series. For example, you can mix a Xeon 5520 with Xeon 5540. You can also mix a quad-core processor with a six-core processor, provided the quad-core part is based on the Westmere architecture (32 nm), not Nehalem (45 nm).

    The board will also let you run a single 2P-capable processor in either sockets. DDR3 memory modules can be non-ECC or even ECC. 2P Xeon DRAM Multipliers / Uncore Multipliers are locked so you will only be able to use maximum 2:8 or 2:10 depending on segment of CPU. EVGA tells that the board supports 4-way SLI on its GTX 285 Classified VGA, but adds that a "future flagship GPU" also supports it. Could this be GeForce GTX 400 series having it as a standard feature? We have to wait and see. 4-way CrossFireX is supported.

    EVGA carried out power consumption tests where test beds' power consumptions (at wall socket) were measured with different CPU and VGA combinations. They are as follows:
    • 2.8GHz x 2 @ 1.20v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 1x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 535w from AC socket
    • 2.8GHz x 2 @ 1.20v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 4x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 991w from AC socket
    • 4.0GHz x 2 @ 1.30v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 1x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 766w from AC socket.
    • 4.0GHz x 2 @ 1.30v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 4x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 1,243w from AC socket
    • 4.2GHz x 2 @ 1.40v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 1x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 913w from AC socket
    • 4.2GHz x 2 @ 1.40v w 24 threads Full Load + 12GB Rams + 4x GTX285 Classified Full Load = 1,390w from AC socket

    well that yes but i was more worry about the credibility of this knowledge.

    some people might question the info unless they see it comes straight from a well known source like Shamino...

    PS: for the record... most "enthusiasts" that will actually purchase this board that i have spoke with dislike the name.

    Am I mistaken, or am I seeing 2 8pin cpu plugs and 3 6 pin cpu plugs? Oh and btw, the board is pretty damn sexy, gotta love hardware pr0n. :D

    And those are just 285's! Just imagine 480's!!! 2000W isn't a strech!!! Too bad the board will melt.

    yes. that is correct. the 6pins are to supply pcie power directly to the slots.

    board uses 2oz copper and is 9 layer PCB.

    Actually, the 285's on the rig were being used at full load with 3x 6 pin connectors easily going over 300 watts of usage on a card if it needed to be.

    Also from the new acclaimed PCB pictures i think the rumors of power hogs for the GTX 470 and 480 seem to be slightly way over published, because there isnt enough power regs/capacitors to possible even see anywhere near 300ish watts a full load.

    It looks as if the cards might use the same power as the 200 series or even less. But we will see.

    Also the Nvidia boards for the GTX 470 and 480 are EXTREMELY simple to produce, and from the looks of it shorter then my GTX 260's not as cluttered on the PCB as gtx 200 series, and looks like the coolers will be HDT and keep anything hot at cool temps.

    Well if they are really that worried about the name, tell them to give the board to me, because I don't give two shits what it is called...:shadedshu

    Anyone thats unhappy could, again, give the cars to me.:D I'd be happy to pull up next to some punks in a shitty ricer and waste them off the line in my turdmobile...:roll:

    Plus the turdmobile practically markets itself..."Wipe that shit eatin' grin off those ricer driving punks faces with the all new Turdmobile-599 GTB!"
