Jetway Kuroshio BI-600 Intel X58 Motherboard touts a budget pricetag

Intel’s LGA1366 socket plays host to the company’s top of the line Core i7 processors and their triple channel memory capabilities so it’s no wonder that motherboard supporting the chips are usually quite pricey.

The Jetway Kuroshio BI-600 motherboard hopes to change all of that with their budget option which manages to put up some nice performance numbers. TechwareLabs has the review:

First and foremost is of course four PCI-e x16 slots with one PCI-e x4. What this means is that this motherboard can support up to 5 video graphics cards. You can use setups such as two x16 video cards or four x8 video cards. Now the PCI-e x4 doesn’t have enough bandwidth to do much heavy graphics but it’s still an option. Now clearly the motherboard won’t be able to hold four flagship video cards because there just wouldn’t be enough space to actually fit them. It’s very rare to have that many PCI-e options on a budget board.

A slick choice although the lack of extensive tweaking options might scare away the hardcore tweaker.
