ASUS soups up motherboard

Asus has announced a new motherboard that sports virtually every bell and whistle you could dream of. Modestly named the Asus P7F7-E WS SuperComputer, the board is based on Intel's LGA1156 socket 3450 chipset with onboard graphics but also supports up to four ATI CrossFireX cards or three-way/two-way Nvidia SLI card.

Or, should you be so inclined you could plug in up to four NVIDIA Tesla cards equipped with Clarkdale processors.

The board includes USB 3.0 ports, Serial ATA (SATA) 6Gb/s storage interfaces for 6.0Gbps data throughput and two IEEE 1394b ports supporting up to 800Mb/s speeds.

With to four Nvidia Tesla cards whirring away in the board, Asus reckons SuperComputer generates up to 4 Teraflops of processing power from a total of 960 CUDA parallel processing cores.

The board also has six memory slots that can accommodate up to 16GB of DDR3 memory.

Added in the bundle in Asus' GPU Boost which can overclock the integrated GPU in real time, assuming you can't be bothered with all the CrossFire/SLI Cuda shenanigans.

Pricing details are as yet unavailable. An arm and a leg should cover it.
