MSI touts 'first' mobo for Intel Core i7

Want a peek at Intel's 'Nehalem'-oriented X58 chipset? Well here it is, courtesy of mobo maker MSI, which today announced its first board for Core i7 processors.


MSI's Eclipse: awaiting Core i7

MSI's X58 Eclipse is equipped with the Socket B - LGA-1366 - interconnect to support the likes of 'Bloofield', Intel's upcoming desktop Nehalem. The board uses QuickPath instead of ye olde frontside bus.

Eclipse will provides three memory channels, allowing it to take up to six 1333MHz DDR 3 DIMMs - the first of its kind to do so, MSI claimed. The board will take up to 24GB of RAM.


How many processor pins? How much memory?

Ya that is great but I'm not sure how much of a difference it would really make.

It would probably run Maya really well... if they have a version optimised for quad core plus... I guess professional codewriters or those working directly with them are going to be the first to really fully utilise core i7 and the mega ram.
