Less than a month ago, Intel Has revealed to us the upgraded generation of its Extreme processors,Sandy Bridge E Who brought with them a new generation of extreme processors, more performers and more Cores. Many have not felt the launch of the new chipset launched at the same time as the Extreme processors.
God-X79 Is officially the new chipset for Intel's high-end market platform, a direct replacement that does not pity the old and outdated generation,X58. True, we all expected something like that X69, But Intel chose to go up in the series and go directly toX79, Why? Later the reviews will determine for themselves whether the changes made indeed require such a skipping or the name of the whole business is quite marketing, and is supposed to create a more direct and meaningful separation from all platforms launched to date in the form of P67 או Z68, Including a resident and a series Processors new.
The launch of such a chipset at the start is indicative of more future offspring, which means that we are all expected to have a replacement generation of upgraded mainstream chipsets to join the series,X7, Or even a figure X8 When you left Processors New to the chassis later in the 2012 year.
So what are the changes?
In addition to supporting theLGA2011 The new, new chipset contains the same link to the processor, the machine DMI 2.0 And offers as direct a communication as possible between the processor and the other components of the system. Multiple connections USB It too remains the same and stands on 14 in number, all in the 2.0 standard USB, Eight lanes PCI-E In the second generation and support for high-definition audioHD). There are also 6 connections SATA, Two in theSATA 3 And 4 interface SATA 2 And a card Network. You understood the principle, again without any change from what we have seen to this day!
