Foxconn prepping P45 Avenger motherboard

Posted on Monday, November 10 2008 @ 23:19:14 CET by

Expreview reports Foxconn will soon release a new P45 motherboard named Avenger, one of the special things about this board is the 90-degree rotated LGA775 socket. Foxconn did this so they could move the northbridge chipset closer to the processor, they claim this will improve latency times but we're interested in seeing some benchmarks to see if this tweak really offers noticeable performance gains. Furthermore, the Foxconn P45 Quantum Force Avenger also has a PLX chip for dual x16 CrossFire support. Regular Intel P45 motherboards only support x8 CrossFire.
Avenger is different from ordinary P45. The LGA 775 slot has been turned 90 degrees, making room for P45 chipset. The P45 chipset has been placed between LGA 775 and DDR3 memory slot, shortening the distance between each other. The special design can lower the latency of data links. Of course, we should run some benchmarks to see its actual performance.

Also you can see a PLX chip between PCIe #1 and PCIe #2. You can also find the same chip in HD 4870 X2, it provides extra PCIe lane for PCIe graphic cards, so you can run X16 Crossfire on this board.
