Upgrade program

X79 Dark Upgrade Program 

http://www.evga.com/articles/00760/ 

 

 

we should get some more info within next 24 hours :)
 
EVGA_JacobF 

Expect to see some more information by tomorrow, availability will be very soon, but not tomorrow. 
 

 

Edit June 26.
 
More great news from Jacob :)
EVGA_JacobF 
Just want to say that we have the program almost nailed down, and working on the announcement and final details. It is quite close so please stay tuned :) 
 


Edit 16. June:
Info we know so far
Estimated release date: first half of July
Motherboard size is confirmed to be E-ATX
New UEFI BIOS, like on Z87 motherboards
Support for 2-Way, 3-Way and 4-Way SLI  
SATA 6G is Marvell 88SE9230
2x Intel NIC
Heat sinks are made of aluminum, not plastic 
 
EVGA_JacobF Here is the slot assignments: 
  
1 card = X16 
2 cards = x16/x16 
3 cards = x16/x16/x8 

4 cards = x8/x8/x8/x8  
 
EVGA_JacobF Also price target under $399 but that is still being ironed out. 

 
why not full POSCAP's:
EVGA_JacobF POSCAP's are nice but they are very expensive, and use a lot of PCB real estate. 
  
For every standard solid capacitor you need 2 POSCAP's, this uses up a lot of PCB space in the end and with 8 DIMM's and a socket 2011 + 4-way SLI in an EATX form factor, it is just as effective in most cases to use POSCAPs where it matters most instead of everywhere. 

 
good news for existing evga x79 users:
EVGA_JacobF Hey guys, 
  I just would like to mention that we are working on an X79 Dark program for existing EVGA X79 owners. 
  I don't have any further details at this time but please stay tuned for more details.

I've a feeling eVGA's about to make up for the first go-'round and then some.

EVGA boards always look somewhat decent.
 
1. How stable will it be?
2. Can we see BIOS screenshots?
3. Will the UEFI be better then the last UEFIs?
4. ETC?

Interesting how they decided to not use the standard x79 socket with the threads for a cpu cooler like on a normal X79 board. Holes like 1366. Interesting. I am excited to see how this board preforms. I would love to ditch my ASUS board for the EVGA one depending on price

Well it certainly looks nice! And It has the perfect layout. If the BIOS issues have been fixed, they definitely have a winner.
 
Please tell me that this board will allow for 1-4-7 spacing 3 way SLI , and comes with the proper bridge. Please! It has the right PCIe slot layout.
 
Also, can anyone fill us in on any small details, such as who manufactures the NIC and extra SATA controllers?

i am still running my x58 759 classy due to the x79 issues at launch and looks to be still looming. i have tried to upgrade to ASRock, GIGABYTE, ASUS boards but returned them all.
 
I have been waiting, waiting and more waiting for EVGA to drop a x79 board just like this..
 
please drop soon as i need me an upgrade. i will be watching and trolling till this thing drops.

Some info on the board from Hardware Canucks:

I'll be watching this one for sure, I was just about to purchase the x79 classified till this came out. I was, also, looking at the ASUS x79 extreme.

^Another great question. 
 
Here's another:  If this X79 has all the issues fixed, how about EVGA sends out this board to all original X79 owners that have bum boards?

Ahhhhh  Again...
ASUS will send Triads for EVGA Designers Team one day.
Maybe EVGA can make for us with Z77 FTW similar shield for Ports to install somehow now.
