    Exclamation MSI X58 mainboards provide full support to Intel Gulftown

    Source: http://eu.msi.com/

    In order to provide consumers more comprehensive upgrade services, MSI, the world-leading mainboard and graphic card manufacturer, announced today that all MSI mainboards using Intel X58 chipset are available for simple BIOS upgrade without reconfiguring any hardware settings to support the next-generation Intel 32nm CPUs. This will bring greater scalability to consumers and mark out the thoughtful upgrade consideration of MSI products right in the beginning of product design.

    In addition to process advancement, lower operating temperature and higher performance, the new 32nm Intel processors are the first series that includes native 6-core products on the market. The multi-tasking performance provide by the new 32nm Intel processors will bring consumers the experience of extreme performance. The MSI X58 mainboards have been a heat on the market since they were launched for their outstanding specifications and performance. Another heat is expected from them for their full support and compatibility with the next-generation 32nm processors from Intel. And they will surely be the right choice for power users who dare to challenge the extremes.

    Eclipse Plus is a very solid board, just let the bioses mature and it will be one of the top X58 mobos.

    The X58M is a nice little runner, a bit finnicky on voltages but for the price it is unbeatable.

    I was thinking for someone with a single or dual card set up and some aftermarket mobo cooling, the x58m would be a good deal w/ a hex-core.
    You must [not] advance.

    Exactly, I just dropped a gulftown in my board. Have added some cooling elements and did initial test today. Seems like the board aint fully ready for the Gulfie yet. It throttles down once loaded to default multi no matter what I do. Very dissapointing.

    Is this really news ? Wouldn't any of the boards support the new processors with just BIOS updates ? Would be more useful to have a list of boards which did not support them.
