Yeah, even one at 3.1 - 3.5 is pretty impressive, so at 3.8-4.0, I would expect some serious processing power.

I know, I am too. I had been waiting for this board for over a year.

Cool. Will be looking forward to your results with retail chips smile.gif


I will see what I can do to get the most out of it, but if it is anything like the ES, I would be happy to just to be able piggy back the ES onto retail, and at least have two running at 3.8-4.0+.

X-designated Xeons are not unlocked. That just means they have a 95w or higher TDP. Are you stupid or something?

I agree with you for the most part. The only problem I see is that the SR-X was announced quite a while ago, before E5 Xeon details were leaked I believe. Obviously if the SR-X either was canceled or lacked all those features you talked about then people would put the blame on EVGA, regardless if Intel released unlocked CPUs or not. By keeping to their "claims" and releasing the board with full fledged features nobody can put the blame on EVGA. Which is 100% working for them; besides the odd placement of SATA ports and the blue USB 3.0 Header everyone in here, including myself, has just been pointing the blame finger at Intel.
Imagine if EVGA canceled the SR-X after sneak peaking it. The entire computing community would just be saddened and would be annoyed with EVGA. Or imagine if the SR-X came out and the features you're talking were actually held back, then everyone would really be disappointed and again blame EVGA. At least at this point EVGA has held up their end of the deal and can no way be blamed for this "disaster". They might be aware of something we are not, or maybe not. If they aren't then they probably won't produce many SR-X boards, but they know for sure that the ones they did produce will sell out. Even with all the hate there will still be a large amount of people who will buy this board.

Maybe it's a situation like Acura, Toyota and a few other car companies used to be in. They all made ONE truly badass sports car and it never made them money for the amount sunk into design and refinement compared to how many they sold...but having that car in the showroom gave your company street cred. You were capable of building completely awesome sports cars, and thus, when I buy my Acura Integra...I feel like maybe you put a little NSX inside it.

I think SR-X is EVGA's flagship status product. Completely pointless to own for any real purposes, but the fact that they can make such an awesome and expensive board makes all of their other boards, and their company as a whole, seem a little more awesome. It also keeps them at the front of our minds for the future when Xeons MAY be unlocked.

Or maybe it's a colossal screw up and they decided to begin R&D before having solid info on the chips.

Core frequency does matter for high end gaming i.e. 2560x1600+ or 3x1080p+. Go read [h]'s gtx580 tri sli vs 6970 tri XF comparison. When they did it at ~4GHz the nvidia cards suffered a great deal in comparison to ~4.8Ghz.

No, I don't run it at stock, but even when I do run it at stock, it's fine. I overclock purely because I like having a 4GHz CPU tongue.gif

wth are you on about with the unlocked multi or no? SB based chips OC differently than any other chips before, how could i possibly refer to anything in history about that? Anyway, if there is going to be any chance of ocing on this board its going to be with an x designation xeon, which if history is any indication should be out in around half a year. oh wait i said that already didn't i?
