Intel DX58SO Smackover X58 Motherboard

Benchmark Reviews
4 January 2009
  • Conclusion: We at Benchmark Reviews are always amazed by the differences in the advertising campaigns that different computer products manufacturers utilize when launching a new product. Most motherboard manufacturers tend to bloviate with a long-winded diatribe about all of their features and specifications that can be confusing a best for the the potential consumer.
  • Pros: Highly feature laden BIOS for an Intel manufactured motherboard, Excellent, rock-solid construction, Excellent on-board sound codec, Rear I/O ports minimized to fit today's standards, Ability to independently adjust each core's multiplier when running the i7-965 EX, Ability to run turbo boost in both stock and overclocked modes of operation, Use a socketed BIOS chip as opposed to having the chip soldered on the board, The price is right
  • Cons: Only three fully functional memory slots, Fourth memory slot addressed at single channel speed, Additional auxiliary power connector required, Horrible positioning of the 6 available SATA ports, Supports only CrossFire in lieu of both CrossFire and SLI supported by the competition, Poor placement of 8-pin auxiliary power connector

Intel Desktop Board DX58SO

2 November 2010
  • Summary: Отметим качественный скачок производительности при работе данной платы с дисковой подсистемой, когда в качестве носителя информации выступает не традиционный жесткий диск, а настоятельно рекомендуемый Intel для высокопроизводительных систем твердотельный накопитель Intel SSDSA2MH080G1GN.
  • Pros: Плата проявила себя весьма достойно, продемонстрировав самые высокие (или одни из самых высоких) показатели на тестах производительности. Настройки BIOS DX58SO явно рассчитаны на любителей разгона.
  • Cons: Не выявлено.
