Asus P6T Deluxe Vs Foxconn Renaissance

4. Foxconn Renaissance - Specifications

Foxconn released the 'Digital life' series of motherboards aiming at delivering high performance computing, connectivity and digital entertainment. This motherboard is also based on the Intel X58chipset.

Foxconn's X58 solution supports the latest Intel Bloomfield series of processors, and DDR3 1600MHz memory (via overclocking) . The board itself carries 100% SOLID capacitors while the ferrite choke and "Cool Pipe" designs helps to maximize performance and reliability.

The motherboard also provides digital audio outputs via S/PDIF OUT and Harp Audio Card. The DTS CONNECT and Dolby Digital Live certifications ensure highest quality fidelity for games and movies.

- Quick features

  • Supports the newest Intel CoreTM i7 and CoreTM i7 Extreme (Bloomfield) processors, Socket T (LGA1366)
  • Supports QPI 6.4GT/S 
  • Triple DDR3 1600(**oc)/1333/1066x 6 DIMMs, Max. 24GB
  • 4* PCIe2.0 x16, 1* PCIe2.0 x1, 1* PCI 
  • 1* ATA133, 2* 1394a, 6* SATA II, 2* eSATA  2*SAS
  • Harp Audio daughter Card with 6 audio jacks,CD-in and Front audio integrated, with 110dB SNR
  • Gigabit LAN by Broadcom®5786
  • 12 USB 2.0 ports
Supports CrossFireX and 3-way SLI
4* PCIe x16 Gen2.0 ( 2*x16 or 4* x8 mode) with CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA SLI TM support delivers unrivalled graphics expansion capability.


Supports Triple Channel DDR3 1600(oc)/1333/1066

Supports Triple channel DDR3 1600(oc)/1333/1066 MAX 24G DDR31600(oc)MHz support unlocks more performance when overclocking CPU with memory, by removing the bottleneck between memory and system bus.


100% SOLID Capacitor & Ferrite Choke Design

Foxconn's 100% SOLID Capacitor design improves component reliability, by replacing electrolytic capacitors with solid versions, this removes the risk of capacitor failure damaging the PCB and surrounding components, whilst improving overall system performance and stability. Solid capacitors are much more durable than standard electrolytic versions, typically lasting around 6 times longer and withstanding higher operating temperatures.

Ferrite Choke
Ferrite Choke design improves power delivery to the motherboard. By using an iron-oxide core, the Ferrite Choke design can hold energy at a higher frequency than traditional iron cores, resulting in less power loss, and more stability and performance capability for your system, especially when under heavy loading.  


2-digit LED readout displays hardware status and enables quick error diagnosis. Onboard power (on/off/reset) and CMOS Reset buttons are located directly on the motherboard PCB, so you can easily start and reset your system whilst testing it on the workbench, or clear CMOS after failed overclocking attempts.
