We've all seen the preview pictures and heard about Gigabyte's new QUAD SLI. The company is now ready to release the motherboards! Freakin QUAD!!! I don't even have dual!

Based on the NVIDIA® nForece4™ SLI™ Intel® Edition and NVIDIA® nForece4™ SLI™ chipsets, the GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal is designed for gamers who lived by ultimate performance and ultimate scalability.
Quad PCI Express X16 Slots
Powered by NVIDIA® SLI™ X16 technology and featuring four PCI Express X16 slots, the GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal frees the limitation of graphics and gaming performance.
