November 18th 2008, Taipei, Taiwan

BIOSTAR Microtech Int'l Corp., a professional manufacturer of motherboards has unveiled a top of the line model for next generation Intel platform—TPower X58, a superior extreme performance and best power efficiency desktop product.

Based on "Nehalem" Next generation Architecture

BIOSTAR TPower X58 based on Intel X58 chipset, which supports Intel latest core i7 series processor family. Intel core i7 series processor supports Quad-Core and Hyper threading technology .Its performance is better performance than prior product family.
The other technical benefit of this model is the latest Intel QPI (Intel QuickPath Interconnect) Technology. A big advantage is that it is point-to-point archtecture. There is no single bus that all the processors must use and contend with each other to reach memory and I/O. It also improves scalability, eliminating the competition between processors for bus bandwidth. BIOSTAR TPower X58 provides record setting 6.4GT/s QPI support and offers flexible memory support options including up to 1600MHz native DDR3-1866MHz memory support with TPower X58.

GPU(Green Power Utility) for Best Power Efficiency

TPower X58 design is based on previous TPower Series Tech top features like 100%XDC (extreme durable capacitor), Space-Pipe Thermal Design…etc. Furthermore, BIOSTAR TPower X58 adds in 12 Phase power design and Green Power Utility function. 12-Phase Power Design will provide highly efficient power control to generate less heat than traditional solutions. This design helps to extend component’s lifecycle and system stability when CPU is under heavy loading or in overclocking mode.
BIOSTAR Green Power Utility is another new function for BIOSTAR TPower X58, it will progress energy efficiency by disabling extra phases while CPU on light loading. You can easily to see all CPU power information and how much power you are saving via an uncomplicated utility on your operation system. Both technologies will balance power saving and overclocking abilities.

Crossfire X and SLI mutli-graphic card technology

The TPower X58 is further equipped to support ATI CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA SLI Technology with triple PCI-E 2.0 (x16, x16, x4) interfaces, delivering ultimate transfer bandwidth for extreme gaming performance. The overall specification of BIOSTAR TPower X58 is best cost / performance of choice for Gamers and overclockers,

Other Features

Rapid Debug3

Rapid Debug3 posts critical POST Code information in a digital LED display. When system malfunction occurs, it will auto detects what’s the device failure and translates the errors code on the digital LED. It also shows the CPU temperature on the same screen.

Space-pipe design

The BIOSTAR Space-pipe design effectively directs the heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near the back I/O ports - where it can be carried away by existing airflows from the CPU fan. This innovative fanless heat pipe design effectively lowers temperatures by up to 10°C without having lifetime problems that a normal chipset fan has.

Clean-Tone Technology

As the desktop systems use more and more fans to achieve better overclocking, users get annoyed with the noise. Normally, motherboard’s heat generators are chipsets, PWMs and graphics cards. Overclockers can start to boost their desktop’s performance effortlessly without creating any extra noise!

 BIOScreen

Personalize your desktop with customizable boot logo. BIOSereen is the new feature in TPOWER X58 motherboard that let your realize personalization and create your owned style to shown the customizable and lively boot logo.

Green Power Utility

BIOSTAR Green Power Utility is a new function for BIOSTAR TPOWER X58, it will progress energy efficiency by disabling extra phases while CPU on light loading. You can easily to see all CPU power information and how much power you are saving via an uncomplicated utility on your operation system.
