MSI ready for Gulftown Posted on 08/01/2010 at 14:37 by Benoit
While the Core i7 980X (alias Gulftown) will certainly use socket LGA 1366, compatibility with existing X58 motherboards hasn’t yet been confirmed by the manufacturers and we are only getting information little by little.
After Asus, it’s now over to MSI to adapt BIOS’ for its cards to house the Intel hexa-core. The cards involved are the Eclipse Plus, Eclipse SLI, X58 Platinum SLI, X58 Platinum, X58 Pro, X58 Pro-E et X58M. Owners of these cards can already download the new BIOS’ though Gulftown itself won’t be out until March.
