Computex 2011: Nangang 4F Coverage – Intel X79, AMD 990FX, HD 6970 X2 and much more!
Go with VR-Zone on a tour of Computex 2011 at Nangang Exhibition Centre! Inside: Intel X79, AMD 990FX, HD 6970 X2 and much more!
First, let's take a look at some Intel X79 motherboards. It will be some time before X79 is released – and therefore also quite likely that changes will be made to the boards you see here.
ASUS C1X79 EVO
ASUS C1X79 PRO
ASUS C1X79 PLUS
ASUS C1X79 LE
ASRock X79 Extreme4
ASRock has collaborated with professional gamer Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel to create the Z68 Professional. Rather curiously, this motherboard features an old-school IDE connector which was apparently added at Fatal1ty's request.
Over at Zotac is probably the world's first mini-ITX Z68 motherboard. One variant (bottom) includes an onboard Nvidia GeForce GT430, making a total of four (!) onboard display outputs (HDMI + DP + 2 x DVI).
Over at Asus' booth, the ROG Crosshair V and Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboards are on show.
The Crosshair V setup is using a 4-way SLI bridge and the ROG Xpander to accomodate four dual-slot GPUs.
