Foxconn are really on a mission to gain much attention from the masses as Computex closes in. We've seen a couple of very promising motherboards launched by the quickly growing company this week already, and now we see a third and even bolder offering added to the mix to keep with the momentum.


Catering to the high-end AMD enthusiast crowd (as small as it may be), the first AMD based "Quantum Force" series motherboard is officially upon us. The Destroyer is based on NVIDIA's 780a SLI MCP with support for all the latest Phenom processors and carries with it HyperTransport 3.0. SLI users will be mighty content with this board thanks to the four residing x16 slots, providing up to 3-way SLI support with headroom to spare.


You can find a complete rundown on this feature-rich board's characteristics within the official PR here folks.


Yantai, China, May 29 2008 - FOXCONN today launches the first AMD platform motherboard in its highly-successful Quantum Force product range. Destroyer is based on the NVIDIA® 780a SLI MCP and supports the latest AMD Phenom™ processors along with socket AM2 Athlon™ and Sempron™ CPUs. It supports HyperTransport™ 3.0 technology, which dramatically increases available bandwidth between CPU and other system components.


"This is the first Quantum Force solution for the AMD platform, and we are certainly very happy with the result," commented Greta Kuo, Quantum Force Product Manager. Kuo claims that Destroyer will "push the envelop of AMD desktop performance", thanks to innovations like the Quantum BIOS and extended heatpipe solution which helps to remove heat from the northbridge through a radiator fitting that can be extends beyond the motherboard.
