Let it be known as the Eclipse+
MSI has already revealed its first two motherboards that will be a part of the MSI X58 lineup, the MSI X58 Platinum and the Eclipse SLI. MSI has also revealed the name and specs of its third and probably the most expensive motherboard in the X58 lineup, simply dubbed Eclipse+.
The Eclipse+, or the NF200 equipped X58 motherboard, will have all the goodies and features that can be found on the Eclipse SLI, like the famous DrMOS feature, two eSATA connectors, Hi-c CAP capacitors, true 6-phase DrMOS, 2-phase power for QPI, chipset and memory, Creative X-Fi Xtreme audio and much more.
The main difference is in the number of PCI-Express x16 2.0 slots, as the Eclipse SLI has three while the Eclipse+ has four of them. The Eclipse+ comes with hardware SLI, thanks to the NF200 chip. Unfortunately, the picture of this motherboard is still not available, but we hope that we will have it soon.
