Foxconn X58 Renaissance Overview

With all the talk going around about Intel's upcoming Bloomfield desktop processor, many enthusiasts are anxious to know more about the next-generation Intel processors which are slated to be launched in Q4 of 2008. We queried Intel about this earlier today. While they refused to comment on the details, they did say that the launch of the Bloomfield processor and X58 Express chipset are on cue for Q4, 2008.

In fact, it appears that motherboard companies like Foxconn have already started preparing for the launch. We were able to obtain some details of the upcoming Foxconn X58 Renaissance motherboard, including this picture :

Here are its specifications :

Chipset

• Intel X58 Express
• Intel ICH10R

• 4 cores, 8 threads, 8 MB shared cache

QPI Bandwidth

• 6.4 GT/s

Memory Support

• Triple-Channel DDR3 (6 DIMMs)
• Supports up to 24 GB of DDR3-1333/1066/800 memory

Expansion Slots

• 4 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots

• 1 x PCI slot

Built-In Connectivity Options

Like all X58 Express-based motherboards, the Foxconn X58 Renaissance will come with native support for the ATI CrossFire X multi-GPU technology. We do not know if the final Foxconn X58 Renaissance motherboard will include the newly-announced NVIDIA nForce 200 SLI processor. It is certainly a possibility. After all, the launch of the Bloomfield and X58 Express chipset is still a few months away.
