Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO2

Intel is breaking down the barriers when it comes to the performance and bandwidth that gamers, digital media creators, and ultimate multi-taskers need most. The Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO2 provides breakaway performance in production and editing as well as digital media rendering and real-time audio/video preview capabilities.

The massive data throughput and support for the Intel® CoreTM i7 processor Extreme Edition runs more applications simultaneously with less wait time. SuperSpeed Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0, SATA 6.0 Gb/s, triple channel DDR3 memory, and full support for ATI CrossfireX* and NVIDIA SLI* technology are just a few of the many features supported on this board.

Product and Performance Information


1. System resources and hardware (such as PCI and PCI Express*) require physical memory address locations that can reduce available addressable system memory. This could result in a reduction of as much as 1GB or more of physical addressable memory being available to the operating system and applications, depending on the system configuration and operating system.

2. Intel® High Definition Audio (Intel® HD Audio) requires a system with an appropriate Intel® chipset and a motherboard with an appropriate codec and the necessary drivers installed. System sound quality will vary depending on actual implementation, controller, codec, drivers, and speakers.
