EVGA today added the P67 Classified, a new enthusiast-class motherboard to its line-up. With the addition, EVGA joins the club of motherboard makers such as ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte to have a Sandy Bridge ready board.
The new LGA1155 ready P67 Classified uses the Intel P67 Express chipset and sports a 12-phase VRM with two 8-pin EPS connectors for power supply. The extended VRM capability should give the board good overclocking capabilities. There are also four DDR3 DIMM slots, all drawing power from a 3-phase VRM – again a good setup for some quality overclocking. There is also an angled power connector for the main ATX supply.
Also visible on the board are six PCI-Express 2.0 x16 expansion slots, which make the board absolutely ready for 4-way SLI. There is another PCI-E x1 slot available on the top. Two internal SATA 6 Gbps, four internal SATA 3 Gbps, two front-panel, and two rear panel USB 3.0 ports provide multiple the connectivity options. EVGA has also given the P67 Classified 8-channel HD audio, two gigabit Ethernet controllers, FireWire, and eSATA outputs.
For the serious enthusiasts and overclockers, EVGA has thrown in a number of overclocking technologies including its own EV-Bot module. On the whole, the motherboard sounds like an interesting one for the gaming and overclocking crowd. We can look forward to more details and perhaps the actual board once Intel officially releases its Sandy Bridge processors.
