Foxconn X58 Flaming Blade motherboard spotted

Posted on Thursday, February 19 2009 @ 21:29:34 CET by

Techpowerup found photos of the upcoming Foxconn X58 Flaming Blade motherboard at Japanese hardware site Akiba PC Hotline. This model is a cut-down version of the Blood Rage motherboard, but it will still cost around $200-220.
To begin with the CPU is powered by standard ferrite-core chokes as against the PWM circuitry on the original Blood Rage, and the semi-digital circuitry on the GTI variant. A standard 6-phase circuit is employed. The board continues having three DDR3 DIMM slots. Memory is powered by a two-phase circuit. Instead of four PCI-Express x16 connectors on the other variants, Flaming Blade makes do with only two, with a PCI-E x4 slot added to the mix. There is a notable amount of changes with the placement of connectors and headers. The board reduces the use of red in colour-coding the connectors and slots. The SONAR X-Fi sound card gets replaced by onboard audio, while the rest of the back-panel remains the same in terms of connectors.
