unique/rare motherboards

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

just thought Id start a discussion on unique motherboards that have been released to consumers. Ive been searching around the net for motherboards that differ from standard mainstream ones like this MSI Big Bang Marshall with 8 pci-e x16:

Could these boards run all the slots at 16x? Or do they end up running 8 cards at 2x or something?

Sadly SLI and CFX can only support up to 4 cards and on these board I think they would all be running at 8x or slower. Would be great if we can see all the slots filled up with single slot GPUs. :p

xyzzy, dam thats ugly, i'm not sure dual cpu is rare though

It is in consumer grade mobos. Plenty of server boards with multiple CPU sockets though.

That's a blast from the "past", kinda makes me feel old.

 

 

I'm still surprised how long PCI has stuck around, I really though it would be gone quite quickly when PCI-E came out, then again I am still using a PCI soundblaster in my PC...
