If you haven't already noticed, today is Intel day - Core i7 and X58 Express to be exact.


While ASUS jumped the gun well and truly launching its boards a week or two ago, GIGABYTE waited for the actual launch day. Today GIGABYTE is taking the covers off three brand new Socket 1366 motherboards based on the fresh new X58 Express chipset.


The big daddy of them all is the EX58-EXTREME and it is designed to be the best overclocker of the pack with plenty of overclocker friendly features.

The next on the list coming in a little cheaper is the EX58-UD5, which is quite similar as far as features and ports and what-not go but it lacks the fancy cooling.


The cheapest X58 board from GIGABYTE is the EX58-DS4 and it drops off some features to lower the price tag such as less SATA ports and only a single Gigabit LAN port.


GIGABYTE has launched a micro site to promote its new boards and you can visit that page here. You can also view the press release for today's launch, which we uploaded right here.
