INTEL X58 Express Chipset and ICH10R Chipset
Desktop PC platforms based on the Intel® X58 Express Chipset, combined with the Intel® Core™ i7 processor family, drive breakthrough performance and state-of-the-art technology to performance and mainstream platforms. The Intel X58 Express Chipset supports the latest 45nm Intel Core i7 processor family at 6.4 GT/s and 4.8 GT/s speeds via the Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (Intel® QPI). Additionally, this chipset delivers dual x16 or quad x8 PCI Express* 2.0 graphics card support, and support for Intel® High Performance Solid State Drives on ICH10 and ICH10R consumer SKUs.
PCI Express 2.0 Buses
The PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics delivers up to 8 GB/s per direction, 2 times more bandwidth than PCI Express x16 and up to 16 GB/s concurrent bandwidth. PCI-Express x1 I/O offers 1GB/s concurrently, over 7 times more bandwidth than AGP8X, tackling the most demanding multimedia tasks nowadays.
Serial ATA2 3Gb/s
This platform supports reliable storage solution for enhanced data protection and data accessing performance. Serial ATA 3Gb/s is firstly introduced in this platform to provide blazingly 3Gb/s bus bandwidth thus higher disk performance.
CPU Vcore X-Shift / Shift to the scalabilities and flexibilities
The adjustable voltage for CPU Vcore 31 stages can be upgraded in 64 stages for the precisely hardware dynamic over-clocking of demanding computing performance.
