BIOSTAR Microtech has unveiled its top of the line motherboard model for the Intel platform, the TPower X58.
BIOSTAR TPower X58 based on Intel X58 chipset, which supports Intel latest core i7 series processor family. Intel core i7 series processor supports Quad-Core and Hyper threading technology.
The other technical benefit of this model is the latest Intel QPI (Intel QuickPath Interconnect) Technology. A big advantage is that it is point-to-point archtecture. There is no single bus that all the processors must use and contend with each other to reach memory and I/O. It also improves scalability, eliminating the competition between processors for bus bandwidth. BIOSTAR TPower X58 provides a setting of 6.4GT/s for QPI and offers flexible memory support options including up to 1600MHz native DDR3-1866MHz memory support with TPower X58.
TPower X58 design is based on previous TPower Series Tech top features like 100%XDC (extreme durable capacitor), Space-Pipe Thermal Design?etc. Furthermore, BIOSTAR TPower X58 adds in 12 Phase power design and Green Power Utility function.
BIOSTAR Green Power Utility is another new function for BIOSTAR TPower X58, it will progress energy efficiency by disabling extra phases while CPU on light loading. Users can easily to see all CPU power information and how much power they are saving via a utility on theri operation system. Both technologies balance power saving and overclocking abilities.
The TPower X58 is further equipped to support ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI Technology with triple PCI-E 2.0 (x16, x8, x4) interfaces.
Other features include:
Rapid Debug3 posts critical POST Code information in a digital LED display. When system malfunction occurs, it will auto detects what?s the device failure and translates the errors code on the digital LED. It also shows the CPU temperature on the same screen.
The BIOSTAR Space-pipe design effectively directs the heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near the back I/O ports - where it can be carried away by existing airflows from the CPU fan. This fanless heat pipe design effectively lowers temperatures by up to 10°C without having lifetime problems that a normal chipset fan has.
Users can personalize their desktop with customizable boot logo.
