    Intel is confused...its foot is on fire, his club is burning...and little amd dude is just laughing...... for today.
    I think I heard him say, "You dont scare me, Im the world champion!" hehehehehhehee

    Like the Fords of yesteryear...any color you want...and long as its black.......and red..or black....or red!

    Thanks Brian and Raja....now that you got our drool all over our keyboards..........

    Haven't read anything about an "Extreme" "Black" enthusiast line for Ivy bridge yet.
    All the preview articles point to modest cpu gains but better GPU empowerment.
    Like: faster encoding, triple monitor support and 4kX4k resolutions.
    However, enthusiasts will probably wanna OC kepler/maxwell in their PCI-E 3 instead.
    Additionally, Bench addicts want higher cpu scores and CG artists ( self included ) ultimately want
    as many threads for overclocked graphic rendering in Autodesk and Photoshop.
    I guess it will be awhile till an extreme 12/16?/128?? threaded ivy "extreme" cpu comes out?

    In which case I am betting that the next best thing will be an x79 motherboard? Seriously doubt that
    the Asus ROG line will not have an "LGA 2011 Sandy Bridge-E( extreme )" home for Intel's
    flagship 6 Core i7-3960X

    ( in addition to native USB 3.0, I wonder if there will be any bolt action yet? )

    That could be very nice... also ( hopefully ) with mebbe a "stable" 6GBs RAID solution "included"?
    could be a Gigabyte/MSI killing bombshell.

    On the other hand, for a **personal Highend Content Creation uber nerd solution...
    the numbers of both i7-2600k and i7-3960X are still not impressive enough compared to
    what my current R3E and i7-990x can offer.
    Considering what looks like **modest gains for my needs and the $1450 dollar cost of entry on
    a REIV / intel-E combination. I will probably have to wait both the sandy-e and first gen Ivy rounds out!
    ( waiting and hoping for joy in an Ivy "extreme" / RAMPAGE solution. )

    **CG werkstation numbers like:

    Photoshop


    and 3d rendering
    ( Here the CPU numbers being relevent to my rendering needs )

    for ubernerd cg enthusiast needs:
    1. Compared to the 6 core AMD solution an i7-990x purchase makes sense as render time is nearly halved!
    2. However I would be hard pressed to consider the 10% impovement an i7-3960X gives me worth spending $1450!
    3. !! furthermore I am nearly rewarded 20% render times by skipping sandybridge( 2600k ) and sticking to the lga-1366 and a 2 core advantage.
    unless there is some kind of "multi-cpu" magic you have cooking like in the concept.
    Always fun to see what may come may bench.

    New board is here...lol Soon as we can release info we will, for now I stand by what I said in my initial post. I been in this game a long time and this thing is head and shoulders over anything I have played with.

    Edited my last post from last night. ( was late at night with little sleep when first posted )
    Also edited to emphasize main concern: When doing actual work, what gains might one actually get considering current bench results?

    and 3d rendering
    ( Here the CPU numbers being relevent to my rendering needs )

    for ubernerd cg enthusiast needs:
    1.Compared to the 6 core AMD solution an i7-990x purchase makes sense as render time is nearly halved!
    2.However I would be hard pressed to consider the 10% impovement an i7-3960X gives me worth spending $1450!
    3.!! furthermore I am nearly rewarded 20% render times by skipping sandybridge( 2600k ) and sticking to the lga-1366 and a 2 core advantage.
    Unlike many bench tests, here I believe the cinebench should be representative of real usage ( render time is render time right? )

    In many other bench/comparisons a 2600k already beats my RE3 solution but not in numbers that concern my wallet.


    In which case, I am really curious if a claim of "head and shoulders" above the rest includes a cinebench?

    ( really hoping this answer is YES! )

Also of note, the layout looks like a server board, particularly with the SATA ports along the bottom which look suspiciously like the configuration to support ASUS PIKE...

    *@ASUS, can you at least give us a soft timeline on when any info with be released on the RIV? Also will the ROG community here be lucky enough to get the info a little bit ahead of the rest of the world? (That would be super-cool!)

    That board has a Socket 2011 + a Socket 1366, as well as the ram configuration for each.
    i7-980X | EVGA 762 Classified | 6GB Dom GT 2000C7 | GTX580 SLI
