Foxconn -

Foxconn's latest Quantum Force motherboard, due for release in 2008, has set new 3DMark06 records for the mid-range Radeon HD3780 cards and produced stable overclocks of 6GHz for the latest Intel processors.  With a score of 28,313 the test has produced one of the highest 3DMark06 scores of all time, and a new world record using the mid-range HD3780 graphics cards.  Foxconn engineers were able to push a Intel QX9770 Core 2 Extreme processor to 6GHz, running it stably using LN2 cooling in separate tests.  Details about the new Intel platform motherboard haven't been released yet, but Foxconn has stated it will include an 8-phase Digital PWM for regulating power around the system. Engineers have hinted this is one reason for the outstanding overclocking ability. "This is a motherboard whose BIOS is still immature and whose hardware design is not fully tuned, and yet we already able to show such a strong performance capability” claimed Peter "Shamino" Tan, Technical Consultant for the Quantum Force product line.
