Intel’s Tylersburg to be dubbed X58
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.
