ASUS has announced its P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP motherboard. The new P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP is powered by NVIDIA’s nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition which was first shown at Computex 2006.
This motherboard supports Intel Core 2 processors with three physical PCI Express x16 slots. Two of the three slots are full speed PCI Express x16 slots while the third slot is unknown, though most likely an x4 or x2 slot. While three physical PCI Express x16 slots isn’t anything new, Asustek's press release makes interesting claims regarding the third PCI Express slot. One could naturally assume that the three PCI Express slots would be for SLI (or Quad SLI) and one an Nvidia Physics card, because the P5N32 supports both SLI and Quad SLI. Perhaps Nvidia are taking a leaf out of ATI's Triple Play
