Foxconn Quantum Force X79 motherboard finalized

Posted on Tuesday, November 01 2011 @ 20:38:17 CET by

VR Zone received photos of the final retail version of the Foxconn Quantum Force series X79 motherboard.
The LGA2011 socket supports upcoming Core i7 “Sandy Bridge” processors. Foxconn is using a 14-phase CPU VRM design for this board, with 2-phase VRM for the memory. There are four DDR3 DIMM slots on this board, two on either sides of the socket, one per memory channel. Expansion slots include four PCI-Express x16, among which three are wired to the CPU. The red slots are PCI-Express 3.0 x16 capable, the bottom-most slot is PCI-Express 3.0 x8 capable. The second black slot is electrically PCI-Express 2.0 x8, and is wired to the X79 PCH, so the board is optimal for 3-way SLI and CrossFireX.

There are eight internal SATA ports, four of these (color coded red) are SATA 6 Gb/s, two of these (top) are driven by the X79 PCH, the other by an ASMedia-made controller. The black ports are SATA 3 Gb/s, wired to the PCH. There are two eSATA ports on the rear-panel, driven by a JMicron-made SATA 3 Gb/s controller.
