[VRZ] Updated info: ASUS' new X79 motherboard called "The ZEUS" with dual integrated GPUs. - Page 5

This has a 7970X2 integrated. Maybe the most bad a$$ and bad idea ever. I would love to see this in action.

Wait a minute! Yes, it can't possibly be two HD 7970's, at least it wouldn't work in practice with those heatsinks, but then again, what could be effectively cooled with that heatsink and yet need 2 x 8 pin and 6 pin power connectors ?


But what I really was surprised by, was this statement:
Quote:
What makes us doubly sure that these are AMD-made GPUs, is that NVIDIA does not recognize the Sandy Bridge-E HEDT platform as PCI-Express 3.0-compliant, something ASUS is stressing on, on the marketing poster of the ZEUS.

Is this true ? Can somebody explain ? I thought only one driver was reverting to PCIe 2.0, but that they had now fixed it. Right ?

holy crap!

If this is for a all in one system then that would make sense.

This is a good idea and a bad idea. Depending what 2 GPUs are in there, but if you want to upgrade you have to get a new motherboard and new gpu. I don't see to many people buying this. Although i can see it in some portable LAN pcs.

This thing is useless if it has anything weaker than two 7870's.

Why are you guys assuming 7970 or 680?

Its still integrated, which will more than likely mean mid range laptop chips.

And the upgrade thing is irrelevant, they are very obviously targetting this board at large overclockers. Having 4 7970x2's + 2 integrated whatevers and running Lucid MVP would push you over the edge for world records.

Perhaps there is heavy throttling built in to keep the chips in check unless you put the thing on water?

to everyone saying this a fail lets "assume" this for a second:

TRY TO THINK IN A DIFFERENT WAY !! NOT ALWAYS WITH YOUR "LOGIC"

1.- it have 2 high end gpus (7970)

2.- asus found a way to cool this gpus with this heatsink (lets imagine please)


if you pair this mobo with a 3960x or whatever CPU its going to replace it.. tell me in all honestly:


WHEN THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO NEED AN "UPGRADE" ?!?! TELL ME WHEN YOURE GOING TO FEEL THIS MACHINE "SLOW" ?!?!


please think about it for a second
