Dual CPU X58 motherboard spotted
We've managed to get a picture of what should be one of the first boards of this kind and as you can see, it looks slightly different from the dual CPU Nehalem/Xeon boards we've seen so far. It only has four memory slots per CPU for starters, although only three can be used for triple-channel DDR3 and we're not sure if anyone will use the fourth slot.
As this is a server board it doesn't have the normal selection of slots and the design is quite different from what you'd expect when it comes to desktop boards and our understanding is that this board is meant for one of the big server manufacturers.
The board is using a pair of socket 1366 CPU sockets and it might be possible to run a single Bloomfield/Core i7 in this board, but as these CPUs lack the second QPI interconnect it's not going to be possible to run a pair of cheap CPUs in this board.
