nForce 590 SLI reborn
An image of an upcoming
NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI based motherboard has been leaked on the
previously reported NVIDIA was replacing its nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition with the nForce 680i SLI
The motherboard is manufactured by eVGA and appears to be an enthusiast offering. It packs three PCI Express x16 slots, two PCI Express x1 and two PCI slots. While two of the PCI Express x16 slots are full-speed with sixteen lanes, it’s unknown what the lane configuration on the third slot will be. With three PCI Express x16 slots it appears NVIDIA may be taking on
ATI’s triple-play physics processing
Other notable features of the nForce 680i SLI motherboard include 1394a, onboard high definition audio, dual Gigabit Ethernet and a heat pipe cooler for the MCP and SPP. It is unknown which high definition audio codec is used on the upcoming motherboard. Nevertheless, it will most likely be an ever-so-popular Realtek high definition audio codec.
Performance and overclocking information on the upcoming nForce 680i SLI motherboard is unknown at the moment, though the thread originator promises more details next week. eVGA is expected to ship the 680i motherboards in bundles with the upcoming
GeForce 8800 series video cards
This image was sent out by NVIDIA PR to various sites. The motherboard is manufactured by Foxconn as eVGA does not have production capabilities like ASUS, XFX and Gigabyte.

Looks like some sort of mounting point for a vertical fan bracket.

Actually, I think it's just the base of the NB heatsink itself. It looks continuous with that black radiator monstrosity, and affixed to the mobo itself with three pegs.
