EVGA X58 4 Way SLI Classified
This forthcoming dual-socket LGA 1366 motherboard from EVGA has 7 PCI-Express x16 slots and 2 Nvidia N200 SLI bridge chips. You can plug 4 GeForce GTX 285 (as in the pictures) to enable a 4-way SLI system.
I can’t imagine the power consumption of such a system with FurMark (by the way an update of FurMark is coming…).
And what about the power consumption if we replace the 4 x GTX 285 by 4 x GTX 295 ? From Geeks3D’s TDP database:

- 4 x GeForce GTX 295 = 289 * 4 = 1156 Watt
Keep in mind that you have to add in more the power consumption of other components like the CPU + mobo, …
