Extreme gaming has come a long way since back in the day of the Commodore 64 and Atari. We have emerged into a world of computer games that bring a sense of realism unheard of ten years ago. I can still remember when Wolfenstein 3D was the best game out there, which soon gave way to Doom and then Quake. Now all of these games are considered out dated and graphically uninteresting. Though this is true now, they set the stage back then to push the hardware as far and as hard as we possibly could. Each new, state of the art game, such as Crysis and Cryostasis, as well as others, have continued to push the creative envelope of what hardware can do and what technology should be developed. The stage has once again been set.


Not long ago, SLI and CrossFireX were developed to answer the call for more graphics power to handle the ever growing demand that games were placing on a system. The newest of this movement has been the incorporation of Tri SLI into the gaming graphics market. The advent of this latest in multiple graphics card systems has brought about a surge in motherboard support, with the Core i7 and X58 chipset seeing the most action. These boards are greatly increasing in number, leaving the user to choose among many models, but few offer the extreme level of performance that EVGA has attained with their flagship Tri SLI ready board.


The EVGA X58 Classified motherboard is the answer to how far gaming technology has come. The EVGA X58 Classified motherboard features Tri SLI and extreme overclocking support. The board features many cooling advancements, as well as true 16x Tri SLI speed support, with four available PCI-e slots for extreme versatility. The EVGA Classified board also features built in overclocking hardware accessories to aid all enthusiasts with their quests for more power.
