EVGA Corporation is a California-based company which is renowned for producing NVIDIA-based computer hardware targeting consumers, but it has recently aspired to produce Intel-based motherboards as well. EVGA has established itself as a major player emphasizing on motherboards, graphic cards, and factory overclocked graphic cards. The company considers its customer relations and services a unique selling proposition and is globally renowned for its support forums and content fan base.
Earlier this year, EVGA released the X58 SLI Classified;a specialized overclocking-friendly motherboard with an added NVIDIA NF200 chip allowing for optimized use of 3-Way SLI beyond anything ever imagined, thus raising the bar for enthusiast-level motherboards.
The X58 Classified 760 comes without nVidia's NF200 chip, reducing the power consumption and the latency.
The EVGA X58 SLI Classified E759 featured an unheard-of feature combination covering 3-Way SLI + PhysX + 1x PCIe device on a single board, two +12V 8-pin ATX connectors capable of delivering 600 watts of power to the CPU alone, a ten phase Digital PWM switching up to 1333 KHz, and three times the amount of normal gold content in the processor socket. It was simply a small revolution altogether.
The E760 is the second edition of the original E759 which without the NF200 chip substantially decreases the latency of data access through the PCI Express bus. This carries with it similar 3-Way SLI performance as the E759 boasts, and even better 2-Way SLI performance than its predecessor. The Classified E760 is also less expensive owing to the fact that it’s not delivered with the ECP [EVGA Control Panel] unit. One might add that this board is even more overclockable that the previous one, since NF200 bridge chip is known to be quite a beast, thermal and power-consumption wise.
Similar to its precursor, the Classified E760 is another [and almost identical, ed.] enthusiast-grade product, which looks state-of-the-art in terms of specifications, but how does its performance really compare against three other ‘Extreme’ entitled X58 motherboards?
