I can tell you that I own a EVGA Classified Super Record 2 (SR-2) motherboard and it has 2 NF200s on it and no bottleneck at all. SR-2 was terrifically fast with GTX 580 4-way SLI
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

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

What I would build if I had enough money for this monster,

2x 5.6ghz clocked 2011 CPU's
32GB Ram 8x4 2133mhz
3x 6990's or 4x GTX 580's Watercooled and OC'd
3x 2560x1600 monitors
1x Power Plant
why would yo bother with 3 monitors like that
why not just get that 6 monitor setup

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.
