Compared too some of their other dual CPU boards like the Z8 it's damn gorgeous.

Now, Asus, please make an SR-X competitor.

The SR-X market is just so, so incredibly tiny. Why would ASUS waste their time? You forget, "enthusiasts" these days whine about $550 for the top end graphics card -- what will they say to $2k worth of CPUs + a $550 mobo?

Because the SR-2 didn't exactly sell poorly.

But the market for actual workstation boards is so much higher than "enthusiast dual CPUs" that ASUS won't bother. Or at least I highly doubt they'll bother.

EVGA is a small company with, like, 40 people, so they can do these one-off boutique kinds of things and have it be worth their while. ASUS is much, much larger.

They can do both, you know. Asus is capable of that.

Sure, but the total profit from such a venture is peanuts to ASUS. To EVGA, even a (relatively) few sold is good profit.

I'm sure their other enthusiast products fall into the same boat. They could just sell workstation, OEM, and mainstream desktop boards exclusively.

However, a smaller boutique company has much smaller R&D resources. That means higher end-cost to recoup development costs. The R&D costs for a larger company would be less and it would be easier to recoup the cost as well.

Besides, Asus offers dozens of motherboard variations already.

This appears to be a workstation board..... The GPUs in the picture are Teslas.

Don't forget, pretty much all of EVGA's original motherboard team defected and went to ASUS. So they already know how to make an enthusiast dual-socket board, most of the R&D has already been done. They just need the will and motivation.
