icube001 -> EVGA 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL Released (10/2/2008 5:54:03 PM)
EVGA released today the latest EVGA-designed addition to its line of high-performance 3-Way-SLI-ready mother-boards, the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL.
Engineered For The Win, early samples of this motherboard already set 4 new performance world records at NVIDIA?s NVISION in late August 2008 in San Jose, California. Featuring an EVGA enthusiast BIOS for extended range voltage settings, 100% solid state capacitors, 100% ferrite core chokes and an advanced 8 phase digital PWM (pulse width modu-lation) power supply solution the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL runs stable in extreme over-clocking environments.
The design supports 2000+ MHz dual channel DDR3 system memory and 1600+ MHz front side bus. Available on October 1, 2008, the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL motherboard combines ultimate over-clocking performance and next gen-eration NVIDIA three-way-SLI-2, including NVIDIA PhysX, at a recommended retail price of €349 in the states of the European Community.
