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 285 = 204 * 4 = 816 Watt
– 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, …

    Nice to see technology advancing in a useful way. Think of the Folding possibilities. Definitely overkill for gaming. Wouldn’t that be OCTO-SLI?! Is that even possible with nVidia’s drivers?

  • Yep 4 x GTX 295 is an octo-SLI. But I don’t know if nvidia drivers can manage 8 GPUs in SLI…

    and just now they have 4 way sli, wow thats pathetic

  • That is one mofo of a motherboard. I wish SLI was more useful for end users.
