    Talking Foxconn Renaissance X58 Digital Life -Retail- (Core i7, Nehalem)

    Foxconn will soon let this motherboard flow out of their factories to you my dear buddies

    This motherboard is targeted to the mainstream market and it will not have all the features, that upcoming Quantum Force series X58 motherboard will have.

    This motherboard will not be so expensive, so you might want to check this out.

    Specs (some):
    * X58 tylersburg chipset
    * ICH10-R southbridge
    * 6 phase power circuit for CPU
    * 2x 16X PCI-E and 2x 8X PCI-E slots
    * 6 memory slots for 3-channel memory configurations
    * Maximum memory amount xx?
    * All basic connectors you need in today computing
    * Selectable QPI 4800GT/s, 6400GT/s (Gigatransfers/s)
    * All adjustments for basic overclocking

    Here is the pictures:





















    I don't have the exact time for release and I don't know the exact price, so be patient.

    Memory in the pictures are upcoming A-DATA 1GB D9GTR sticks. These should do easily 2000MHz 7-7-7-18. I'll do another test report about the memory later.

    Test results will come 13th of November when NDA will be lifted

    speaker???

    that was my first thought as well - which socket revision is this slated to be?? and have they finished the debate on if x58 will be CF only or include SLI ??

    possible I'm behind the times....

    great looking board - thanks for the preview

    Nice photos mate. You'll have to teach me to use this camera I've got now. I think it's basically the same as your's wasn't it?

    Looking forward to your first results

    Hahah yeah I reckon. It looks wild and nothing like a heatsink. Fingers crossed it doesn't screw with cooling

    The next issue of The Overclocker (yeah, I know guys! trust us; very freakin close!) has a sneak peak at an MSI X58 but it is more of a general look and we've included some information regarding multi-GPU solutions.

    As for which boards will be CF, which will be SLI and which ones will be both (if that's possible!?), will be dependent on licensing agreements and what features the manufacturers choose to enable i believe. For example, for a board to support SLI, even without the nForce200 chips, it will have to go through NVIDIA's SLI qualification process and this obviously costs money so could still continue to see the lower end of the multi-GPU market dominated by CF setups.

    I love the board, but the cooling makes the whole thing look like a cheap hi-fi.

    It's nice that you all like the board. I'm not 100% sure, that is this the final NB cooler. Saaya is working on it.

    When I know the release date and price, I let you all know as soon as possible.

    Really? These are really good sticks then. I haven't tested max speeds yet, cause I'm just getting used to this motherboard.


    I really would like to show some performance to you guys. All I can say, that it is something crazy and I love it


    Here is what CPU-Z tell about the board:

    I hope it's not final; looks like a small speaker, which has no business inside a PC!!!

    congrats m8 for this nice mobo we will have a nice xmas, everybody will bench nehalem at the end of this year...
    layout seems perfect, except the NB cooler, i don't like it, saaya be creative but not that much
    BUT... if they focus on "digital life / digital home" support and looking, i can smell some quantum force x58 in the future, am i wrong?
