Set to be paired up with the ICH10 southbridges, the X58 will be used on Socket 1366 motherboards and act as the assistant of the quad-core Bloomfield processors.

The platform based on the X58 and Bloomfield couple will provide triple-channel DDR3-1333 support, two or four PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots and will act as Intel’s top desktop offer. Just about the same time the X58 rolls out AMD should start delivering its first quad-core 45nm Phenom CPUs so expect this year to end with quite a clash of titans. Well, it’ll be more David and Goliath.
