MSI's X58 Eclipse breaks memory bandwidth record

Intel's Core i7 Extreme 965 OCed to 4,067MHz


The guys at Coolaler.com forums have managed to their hands on MSI's X58 Eclipse motherboard and paired it up with Intel's Core i7 Extreme 965 CPU and some high quality G.Skill triple channel memory kit.

Using MSI's crown jewel based on the X58 chipset, the guys at Coolaler forum managed to get Intel's Core i7 Extreme all the way to 4,067MHz while the G.Skill 6GB DDR3 kit was overclocked to 1,017.5MHz (2,034MHz). One of the interesting things is that memory was able to achieve that OC with voltage set at 2.05V while the CPU VCore was set at 1.576V which means only one thing, that MSI's Eclipse, unlike some other X58 based motherboards, can separate CPU and memory voltage and the 1.65V limit doesn't apply.

The memory in question works at 1017.5MHz at 10-8-8-24 1T latency with FSB ratio set at 2:12. That OC was enough for MSI's Eclipse to break the memory bandwidth record and score 21647MB/s in the Everest memory read test. It looks like MSI has a great X58 motherboard and that we can finally see some records broken on it.

Now the real problem right now is.... what brand to go by?  If I was still dead set in still sticking with Core2Extreme bunch, I was gonna stick with the Striker II Extreme.  (I still partially am, but I'm already tilting on a Nehalem system lol)

not sure to be honest, if you look at the charts I have listed in the other sections, you will see that one GTX vs x2, are pretty much the same till you go high res.

however with 2 GTX high res is no problem, so 2 x GTX vs 2 x x2 should not be that different, the 2 x x2 would be more overkill then anything.

best way to go right now is one 4870x2 or two GTX-s. unless you have a particular reason for needing 3 or 4

Every single x58 board I've seen at LEAST supported Tri-SLI, though it's funny how it never offers Quadi SLI.

From memory at the moment, Asus, and Foxconn were two.

Actually the difference for some (may or may not be significant) is that for some boards Triple SLI uses "lanes"? I believe?  Asus goes x16-x8-x8 some other board does x8-x8-x8 lanes only.

[email protected]?  May I ask what's the practical use for a person?

Even Wiki didn't give a layman answer.

Ohh so it simulates such and such, to see about diseases and what not (and further on).  That's cool!
