Asus Introduces Motherboard With 7 PCIe 2.0 x16 Slots
At CeBit 2009, Asus has rolled out one heck of a new motherboard:
Besides supporting the new Core i7 processors from Intel this X58 motherboard features seven PCIe 2.0 x16 slots. While three of these are “only” running at x8 the other four slots support full x16. Whether this makes sense or not is questionable of course. Other specifications include six Dimm slots for up to 24 GB of DDR3 RAM six SATA 150 300 ports supporting SATA RAID 0 1 10 5 two SAS ports supporting SAS RAID 0 1 10 two eSATA 150 300 ports supporting SATA RAID 0 1 10 5 and two Gigabit-Ethernet-Ports.
Four x16 slots, and three x8 slots. Does that effectively make this a competitor for NVidia Tesla?
