[DH] Gigabyte X79 motherboard with 8 DIMM slots viewed - Page 8

post #71 of 132
I for one also welcome 8 DIMM slots on X79 boards as well, because having 4 DIMM slots is like a downgrade for me, and I plan on sticking 8x4GB RAM sticks in the future.

So with 1156 and newer sockets the termed "North Bridge" is entirely on-die. This is one of the main reasons Sandy Bridge boards are so cheap.

Ahhh, ok, now I get it. Thank you for filling me in on that and not chiding me for my ignorance. I knew I didn't see a NB, I just did not know whether this was an established thing.

Pretty fugly...as are most X79 motherboards I've seen to date. I love the look of the socket (very industrial), but the rest...well...

Is anyone else seeing two USB headers, two PCI-E, and six SATA ports? I'm not 100% as to how big of a market segment is going to need eight DIMMS and not at least want a feature set that includes more than two USB, two PCI-E, and six SATA ports...

I believe this is aimed at the server market. If this is the case, the feature set makes a lot of sense.

It's been well established since the Opteron/Athlon 64s showed up in late 2003.

Remember NForce3? Only a southbridge.

Even the board you are using in your sig doesn't have a real NB on the board, just a QPI to PCI-E bridge chip and a southbridge.

Imagine putting 4x 2GB 2133Mhz sticks in there.

Ultra memory read/write speeds and huge capacity = WIN.

As of now I see X79 costing way too much for me.

The only good thing I see coming from this is picking up an i7 970 for cheap.

They may as well have made it 12 so that 48 gigs can be used... Rendering, CAD, CAM,Video editing all benefit from masses of memory and multi CPUs'.
