Intel X99 to allow systems with 5 video cards

The Intel X99 chipset has not been a secret for a long time now with details emerging here and there every once in a while. We now know that the chipset will come out this year and will power Intel Haswell-E systems on Socket LGA 2011-3. The initial release is expected in Q3 2014.

The latest information on the chipset reveals something else though. Apparently the X99 chipset will allow end users to install as many as 5 graphic cards on a single motherboard powered by this core logic. The reported operating modes include x16 + x16 + x8 or x8 x 5, which clearly shows that users will be able to install five graphics cards that will run in PCI-E 3.0 x8 mode. This development might delight people who do bitcoin mining.

In addition to this peculiar functionality the Intel X99 will support quad-channeled DDR4-2133 memory with each channel accepting a single memory module, six USB 3.0 ports, up to 10 SATA 3.0 ports and up to eight PCI-E 2.0 slots.
