Plus new power supplies and Kingpin card.

Alongside a new series of PSUs and the obligatory Kingpin graphics card based on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU, EVGA announced support for Intel's nascent high-end platform based on Socket 3467.

Housing Xeon 'Skylake' CPUs with up to 28 cores and 56 threads, EVGA's 12-layer SR-3 is an E-ATX board featuring an optional in-house-designed watercooling block, dual NVMe, U.2, and 10Gbe Ethernet.

As is normal, pricing is going to be sky high, with EVGA reckoning it will cost the thick end of a grand when launching in July. Makes rival AMD Threadripper boards look cheap in comparison.

In other news, EVGA has upgraded its Nu Audio soundcard to feature Nahimic software for immersive effects. The company is also releasing a high-end Z10 RGB keyboard with Kailh blue or brown keys. Likely to cost $149 when launched in July, we're eager to get it in for review.
