Intel six-core 32nm Gulftown might work in some X58 motherboards

Posted on Friday, March 06 2009 @ 14:50:08 CET by


FUD Zilla heard Intel's X58 chipset should support the six-core 32nm Gulftown processor, which is scheduled for 2010. However, it is unknown whether the chip will work in all existing X58 motherboards.
The problem is that Intel still doesn’t have the final silicon and that it needs to do a validation with existing X58 infrastructure. If the motherboard manufacturers used Intel’s design guidelines they should be fine, but there is no assurance that your X58 motherboard purchased in 2008 or 2009 will work with Gulftown.

That is the bad part while the good part is that you probably won’t need to change the motherboard and memory, but we are sure with Gulftown 32nm six core, there will also be new and better versions of X58 motherboards. Intel obviously has economic recession in mind even with high end stuff.
