Intel rumoured to have its X58 chipset replacement ready

Written by Nick Farell


The X58 is dead long live the X79
The dark satanic rumour mill has been manufacturing a hellish yarn claiming that Intel's is going to kill off its venerable X58 chipset.

But according to the latest rumour, Intel has its successor all ready to go.  The  X79 successor will launch next month, as Intel pushes the X58 into a retirement home. It is looking like orders for the X58 chipset will stop on April 27th, 2012, and the chip giant will ship the chipsets through to October 5, 2012.  For those who came in late, the world is expected to end in December 2012. If you want to try the X79 you are going to have to be quick.  Still at least Intel is preparing for the end of one of its most famous chipsets.

There have been  X79 powered mainboards from ECS and Foxconn announced as being in the pipeline. Based on that it would look like the X58 has got roughly a year left before it becomes a Norwegian Blue.
