nForce 590 SLI reborn

An image of an upcoming NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI based motherboard has been leaked on the AnandTech forums. DailyTech 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 architecture.

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 at launch.

Update 10/13/2006: 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.
