We knew this news was coming for a while, just not sure as to when exactly it would happen. But now we have a date on when Intel will close the chapter for good on its current top-tier enthusiast grade desktop platform, X58.

With the retirement schedule revealed today, Intel says X58 has exactly 12 more months to go until complete replacement by X79 (LGA 2011) which is scheduled for launch next month. Intel will keep taking orders for X58 until April 27th, 2012, and the last of these orders will have been shipped by October 5th, 2012.

A bit of relative other news on X58, to motherboard vendors at this time the X58 I/O Hub (Northbridge) costs $39, with the ICH10R Southbridge costing another $14.
