Foxconn's New Weapons - The Flaming BladesCategory: Motherboards
Posted: March 6, 2009 03:39PM
Even five months after the release of Intel's Core i7 processors, prices are still high for almost all related components, including motherboards. Foxconn wants to change all that though with the new Flaming Blade and Flaming Blade GTI motherboards. Both contain three DDR3 memory slots, two PCI-E x16 slots, six SATA ports, 6-phase PWN and more! The only differences between the normal and the GTI is that the GTI only supports CrossFire (while the former supports both SLI and CrossFire) and it lacks the two e-SATA ports seen on the normal board.
The price is expected to be in the $200 price range, but that is the cost of what AMD's best motherboards have to offer. Seems Intel motherboard manufacturers still need to work on pricing.
