    Where are the Haswell Xeon boards that support the Haswell integrated GPU? (I.E. for the E3 12x5 V3 Xeons) Reply

    I like Gigabyte, but the fact that I can't price and order one of their server motherboards online is why I will buy SuperMicro every time. It's a shame, because these boards look nice. Reply

    Sorry, Yoda. Didn't mean to reply to your comment. Reply

    IF the first board is quad GbE, why does it have 5 ethernet ports? Reply

    Because the fifth one is a BMC management LAN port.

    that bumps the question back one level; but why does the management tool need a dedicated port instead of being able to send commands over the main network connection? Reply

    Security. You probably don't want to be exposing low-level controls like that to the same network your actual data is on.

    Yes, proper security on the management port could theoretically do this, but better ultra-paranoid than rooted.

    Plus, sometimes having an out-of-band management interface is very helpful if the system is on a network that your mangement workstation can't access directly. Reply

    PCI-PCI-e bridges I'd say. Reply

    Is there any particular model anyone would like to see reviewed at AnandTech?
    Anything that brings better PCIE - more lanes, say via the chipset.

    Can't remember the last time I used a PCI slot. Why would a workstation/rack board need 3?
    No idea why they bunched up 4 PCIE slots. Can it really just be down to lazy design or stupidity?
