BIOSTAR has unveiled a top of the line model for next generation Intel platform—TPower X58. BIOSTAR TPower X58 is based on Intel X58 chipset, which supports Intel latest Core i7 series processor family. Intel Core i7 series processor supports Quad-Core and Hyper threading technology.

The other technical benefit of this model is the latest Intel QPI (Intel QuickPath Interconnect) Technology. A big advantage is that it is point-to-point archtecture. There is no single bus that all the processors must use and contend with each other to reach memory and I/O. It also improves scalability, eliminating the competition between processors for bus bandwidth. BIOSTAR TPower X58 provides record setting 6.4GT/s QPI support and offers flexible memory support options including up to 1600MHz native DDR3-1866MHz memory support with TPower X58.

TPower X58 design is based on previous TPower Series Tech top features like 100%XDC (extreme durable capacitor), Space-Pipe Thermal Design…etc. Furthermore, BIOSTAR TPower X58 adds in 12 Phase power design and Green Power Utility function. 12-Phase Power Design will provide highly efficient power control to generate less heat than traditional solutions..
BIOSTAR Green Power Utility is another new function for BIOSTAR TPower X58, it will progress energy efficiency by disabling extra phases while CPU on light loading.The TPower X58 is further equipped to support ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI Technology with triple PCI-E 2.0 (x16, x16, x4) interfaces, delivering ultimate transfer bandwidth for extreme gaming performance.
