EVGA 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL PWM

The Mainboard for the Champions – Engineered For The Win

Holding 4 new world records - http://www.futuremark.com/community/halloffame/


Brea, California and Munich, Germany - October 01, 2008 - EVGA Corporation, the leading-edge 3D processor and motherboard manufacturer, announces the latest EVGA-designed addition to its line of high-performance 3-Way-SLI-ready motherboards, the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL PWM. Engineered For The Win, early samples of this motherboard already set 4 new performance world records at NVIDIA’s NVISION in late August 2008 in San Jose, California. Featuring an EVGA enthusiast BIOS for extended range voltage settings, 100% solid state capacitors, 100% ferrite core chokes and an advanced 8 phase digital PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) power supply solution. The EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL PWM runs superior and stable in extreme over-clocking environments to set even more new records. This advanced platform supports 2000+ MHz dual chan-nel DDR3 system memory and 1600+ MHz front side bus. Available on October 1, 2008, the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL PWM motherboard combines ulti-mate overclocking performance and next generation NVIDIA 3-Way and 2-Way SLI at a recommended retail price of $339.99 USD.




Advanced features introduced on the EVGA 790i SLI FTW DIGITAL mother-board:



  • Intel socket 775 45nm CPU ready for Intel Core 2 Duo “Yorkfield” and Intel Core 2 Quad “Wolfdale”.

  • 3x PCIe 2.0 x16 slots for highest PCIe bus bandwidth

  • NVIDIA next generation SLI-2 certified, combining true SLI and PhysX in a 3-way-SLI configuration.

  • EVGA 8 phase digital power supply design for utmost stability in extreme over-clocking environment (replacing a 6 phase analogue reference power supply).

  • 100% solid state capacitors and all ferrite core chokes to precisely sharpen the signal and to reduce the signal’s noise to extend the over-clocking range.

  • EVGA enthusiast BIOS for advanced over-clocking, including a complete menu of validated over-clocking voltage settings to also introduce the less ex-perienced enthusiast step-by-step to advanced voltage settings (Dummy OC from 5% - 25% over-clocking).

  • Extreme manual over-clocking supported by an extended range of signal-stabilized BIOS voltage settings.

  • “Vdroop” BIOS settings to extend and stabilize the over-clocking range at heavy CPU load.

  • Supporting 2000+ MHz 128 bit dual-channel DDR3 memory and 1600+ MHz FSB.

  • EVGA clear CMOS button, power- and reset button with EVGA status LED and EVGA CPU temperature indicator.

  • Diagnostic LED for simplified trouble shooting

  • 9 SATA-2 ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5, JBOD

  • HD Audio - 7.1 Channel, Azalia (HAD)

  • 2 native 1Gb Ethernet connectors

  • 10 USB 2.0 connectors

  • 2 IEEE 1394 Firewire connectors

They do make very nice boards. DFI in there heyday made very custom boards were EVGA tends to stick to reference designs with custom heatsinks.

Well it has work very well for EVGA, not only they got the video cards but also MOBO's that is a killing combination. kind of like Asus.

My hope is that they stick to what is good and not try to mess up any of the design that got them to be, in this position...
