Video Cards and Extras



Just as with their motherboards, EVGA had a host of video cards on display in their suite. We'll start with the GTX275 Co-Op PhysX Edition. The Co-Op features an extra GTS250 GPU onboard, dedicated to PhysX processing. The GTX275 Co-Op retails at $350. Also on display was the GTX285 Classified we mentioned earlier, complete with 3x6-pin power connectors, ready for a 4-way SLI setup on the X58 Classified board. Finally, we saw the GT220 and GT40 cards that everyone introduced recently, which retail at around $100 and below.

Extras


You may have seen leaked pictures of the EVGA X58 dual CPU socket motherboard online recently, but we saw it in person at the EVGA suite. This board is future-proof, ready for the upcoming 6 core Xeon processors, and capable of 4-way SLI. Unlike other EVGA boards on display, this board is ready with USB3 and SATA3 (6Gb/s).

Lastly, we had a look at EVGA's "EVBot "overclocking tool. The EVBot connects via proprietary connection directly to the motherboard, allowing for live editing of BIOS settings while the computer is running. It is entirely hardware based, so it doesn't matter if your computer is running Windows, Linux, or no operating system at all. We saw some other implementations of this concept at the show, but this seems the most polished. Other attempts were either hard to use or still under development.
