We have seen X58 Core i7 boards from the usual suspects already, but one company that has only just joined the party is Biostar.

The folks over at Matbe were able to get a picture of the Biostar T-POWER X58 board and while it does not reveal anything overly exciting, it does go a long way in showing that Biostar is still fighting pretty hard when it comes to high-end performance motherboards.

This board looks to include a standard heatpipe that cools the PWM, Northbridge and Southbridge and it appears to be passively cooled with no fancy options to add water cooling or anything else. Of course being for the Core i7 Nehalem, it gets triple channel DDR3 support and it also includes three PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots running at full speed.

Interestingly Matbe claim the board supports CrossfireX and SLI but we'll need to wait and see when we get our hands on one in our labs probably late next month.
