Plenty of Nehalem boards on show

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/06...ards-on-show/1

COMPUTEX 2008: Usually very coy to show unreleased products, Intel is so confident in Nehalem it's already showing off X58 boards.

interesting core orientation on the Intel board.
hope we'll still have as much freedom in heatsink mounting direction as the current square ones.

I wish more boards were like the intel board. It goes with airflow very well.

What's the point in new motherboards if they aren't pretty? More copper!

Uh, otherwise the heatsink mount holes look to be square... good, any orientation.

Do the Dual Processor Nehalem boards use FB-DIMMS?

DFI has always been slow to the new chipset party. Expect them to be fashionably late, to the point of X68 being on the verge of release

It's nice to see some high-end Intel chipsets that don't require massive northbridge heatsinks and a ton of heatpipes to cool it, again.

is it just me or are the heatsink mounting holes excessively far away from the socket wall? ... and PCI still isn't used to its fullest bandwidth. I agree with you Goty, nice to see it aswell, silence and functionality are key. Am curious to hear the full detailed specs of X58 and its partnering components.

Don't be too sure - these are very very early boards.

RE: FB-DIMMs, you know, I completely forgot to ask but I would say no - they are simply Registered ECC DDR3 because they've no need to be fully buffered anymore as there's no central MCH and no need to reduce the trace count.

Think about it this way - if Intel asks your for support, you will want to be there. However, by being there all the competition knows what you are doing, so this is the only way Asus gets to win at both keeping its cards close to its chest and providing support.

I'm not sure just how many heatpipes and how many tons of copper color painted aluminum they will slap on those boards, afterall x58 should use far less power due to Nehalem having IMC.
That they neither deny nor confirm that x58 will be called x58 is rather stupid though, especially considering they have boards with x58 in the name at their own stand.

Very odd Intel board... everything is the wrong way round and the memory slots have three of one colour and one of a different colour. Is this catering for some processors have 3 channel memory (the 3 blue slots) and some having 2 (some other combination)?

And I suppose x58 will be cooler running now it doesn't have to do memory controlling.
edit: the post doesn't seem to link here, though I may be being stupid.

That was my line of thought, too. If Intel still can't get the power consumption of their chipsets down after removing the vast majority of the logic from their northbridge, that's pretty sad.

nVidia needs to definitely license intel SLi tech so they can get SLi into these boards

That's not true - X58 uses MORE power because of the super fast high frequency QPI links. At least, in its current revision it does - this could change.

ssj12 - it's not about Intel Licensing SLI, it's about Nvidia letting Intel license it.
