All to be showcased at Cebit


The first picture of the DFI's NF790i SLI motherboard has sneaked its way on to the Internet. It features a nice, clean design and enough room around its PCI-Express slots to take three dual-slot cards. Other info concerning DFI is that it has decided to change the design of its X48 so that the 2nd and 3rd PCI-E slots are no longer sitting close to each other.

Our colleagues from OCWorkBench have managed to score a picture of DFI's upcoming motherboard based on the Nvidia's NF 790i chipset. This is the one that we all have been waiting for, since it has FSB1600 support and enough power to compete with Intel's X48 motherboards.

Besides the 790i-based motherboard, OCWorkBench has managed to get a picture of the new, redesigned, DFI motherboard based on X48 chipset, one that is branded LANParty LT X48-T3R. This motherboard comes with support for Intel's Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Extreme processors, FSB 1333/1600MHz, DDR3 memory, ATI's CrossFireX and much more.

The most interesting thing is that LANParty LT X48-T3R cooling was developed in cooperation with ThermalRight. As a representative of DFI's Lanparty series it will feature Volterra 8-phase digital PWM and solid state capacitors, and DFI's specially designed BIOS which will probably turn this motherboard into an overclocking beast.

More info will be available during CeBIT, as we have no intention to miss DFI's booth.
