Hexus: XFX's Intel Core i7 X58 motherboard Review - Delivering the goods?

Hexus writes: "We disclosed Intel's desktop and server plans by analysing the company's roadmap three days ago. What's clear is that the Core i7/X58 chipset combination will remain the performance choice until replaced by a six-core, 12-thread processor, known as Gulfstown, in 2010.

So if you want to buy a premium PC and are willing to shell out the juice on purchasing a Core i7 motherboard, X58 chipset and a reasonable dollop of DDR3 memory, performance will be unmatched. AMD doesn't compete at this end of the market - perhaps sensibly so, as we imagine it accounts for a tiny percentage of overall desktop chips sold."
