Not that is wasn't expected but good to see it confirmed.

EVGA and DFI. Can't wait to see what EVGA has to offer. Already saw an early version of DFI's board.

not exactly. X58 is the ONLY Bloodfield / Gainestown chipset. There will be two implementations of SLI with X58. There will be boards with a bios implementation. Which is limited to 2 cards. Then there is the nForce 200 bridge chip, which adds another PCIe 16x lane for Tri-SLI.

So either way you still have the X58.
