EVGA is working on LGA 3647 motherboard

With rather unique layout

The ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme and Gigabyte C621 Aorus Xtreme are actually the only two motherboards compatible with LGA 3647 processors. Graphics card and motherboard manufacturer EVGA revealed to Gamer Nexus what seems to be the PCB of the upcoming SR-3 (Super Record 3) Dark motherboard.



Unlike ASUS and Gigabyte, EVGA sticks to E-ATX form factor in order to offer a better compatibility with regular PC cases. Due to the smaller size there are few limitations, for example on the upcoming EVGA motherboard there are only six memory slots while on the ASUS/Gigabyte we find twelve slots.

Compared to a classic EVGA X299 or Z390 motherboard, we find the LGA 3647 socket rotated by 90 degrees with the memory slots placed on the top and bottom of the socket. The power delivery subsystem has been moved to the right side of the PCB and the connections should be much easier.

At the moment EVGA didn't say a word about the power design but we can clearly see 20-phase power printed on the PCB. While this might sound underwhelming when compared to the 32-phase power design of the ASUS/Gigabyte motherboard, we have to say that's is all about the design.

Storage wise we spot six SATA ports, two U.2 ports and two M.2 slots. Apparently the board might come with six PCIe 3.0 slots. According to the pinout, four of them will operate at x16 and the other two at x8.

EVGA didn't reveal any detail about the upcoming SR-3 Dark motherboard but we'll know more during next Computex 2019. Beside that, due to its name "Dark", we hope to not see again pinkish PCIe slots like on the EVGA SR-2 motherboard.
