DFI X58 mainboard pixelated
It's growing to become a little bit of a tradition, but I guess we are all excited about the new X58 mainboard, yet less excited about their prices. The LANPARTY UT X58 will support ATI CrossfireX and NVIDIA SLI. The final board will have three PCI-E 2.0 expansion slots running electronically at x16, x8 and x8 lanes. NVIDIA suggested rather persistently to DFI over a couple of meetings that this was the best setup for optimal performance and a requirement of three-way SLI. The board will get two PCI slots of legacy devices along with a single x4 PCI-E slot.
Oh an personally I think the green/yellow design is downright ugly. But heck, perhaps you like it ...
The Socket LGA-1366 CPU gets eight phases, two phases for the triple-channel DDR3 memory, two for the Northbridge and also two for the PWM.
