EVGA has started to branch out into product areas beyond just graphics cards. Motherboards are not new to the company, but EVGA did show us its own custom designed nForce 780i SLI based board - aptly called the nForce 780i SLI FTW (yes, FTW stands for what you think it stands for). EVGA promises better overclocking headroom with its own 780i compared to the NVIDIA reference board that it also sells. Product diversification has also come to EVGA in the form of its first monitor: the InterView. Made up of two 17" 1440 x 900 notebook LCD panels, the InterView is a single unit, multi-monitor solution. Each panel can be flipped around 180 degrees and will automatically flip the image, so you can be working on a document and showing someone else either the same screen or a different desktop. The applications are numerous; the monitor is perfect for those times when you want to show someone your screen but you don't want to have to adjust your seating or monitor position at all. Simply flip one of the displays around and enabling desktop cloning in Vista and you'll be good to go. EVGA expects the InterView to debut in March at a price point of around $750. If you're looking to drive multiple InterView cards but can't use additional graphics cards, EVGA also demonstrated some USB video adapters. The performance out of these things won't be earth shattering, but they can get the job done. EVGA had a total of 5 displays hooked up using these little things. Finally, EVGA also showed us its upcoming GeForce 8800 GT. This card features a two-slot cooling solution, enabling even cooler/quieter operation, and potentially higher clock speeds.
