Computex 2011 hasn't even officially started yet and we've managed to get a few important sightings - motherboards based on the Intel X79 chipset and boards for the upcoming AMD Llano CPUs. While Gigabyte's booth was still a work in progress, thankfully, their product display was ready enough for photo taking.

In short, here are the main tidbits - it has a huge LGA2011 socket for Sandy Bridge-E CPUs, support for quad-channel DDR3 memory and the next generation PCI Express version 3.0.
