    If you recall, at this year's Computex event held in Taipei, almost every motherboard vendor scuffled to show of their first motherboards based on the Intel P67 and H67 chipsets, that support new socket LGA1155 socket processors based on the next-generation Sandy Bridge architecture. The Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2010 event is presenting many of them a second chance, and we're beginning to see some new designs that didn't make it to Computex. Intel's own Desktop Board division came up with a new Extreme Series motherboard, the DP67BG "Burrage". As with every other Intel Desktop Board, this one looks clean, and well spaced-out. While there's nothing fancy about the heatsinks, the glowing skull is there, and this time it's positioned properly.

    The processor is powered by a 4+2 phase PWM circuit, it's wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory support. Among few of its kind, the Burrage makes room of all seven expansion slots in the ATX specification. There are two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (x8, x8 when both are populated), three PCI-E x1, and two PCI. Apart from six SATA 3 Gb/s ports from the P67 PCH, there's an additional Marvell-made SATA controller that drives an eSATA port. Connectivity includes 8-channel HD audio, gigabit Ethernet, a number of USB 2.0 ports, FireWire, and eSATA. After being neophobic toward USB 3.0, Intel has finally embraced it on its Desktop Board brand, an NEC/Renesas controller gives out two ports on the rear-panel. This feature-set should put rest to rumors of Intel embedding USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s into its chipset. The DP67BG from Intel should be out when the first-wave of LGA1155 processors make it to the market.

    I hope lga 1155 fails the the other one to replace 1366 fails also, and then lga 1366's socket progresses and all my stuff will be worth more :)

    LGA1155 quad-core chips are performing close to LGA1366 six-core chips. A lot has to go wrong for them to fail. Like a mishap at all Intel foundries in one go.

    lol, um doesn't this board suck? 4+2 pwm phase or w/e? aren't most 20+ phase? not to mention the tiny sad looking heatsink.

    4+2 PWN phase is more than enough for most set-ups....

    I don't know if that many people noticed, but Intel is making some excellent quality motherboards.

    intel is copying msi me thinks, ps the ammt of phases on the board only corelates to overclocking, and since these chips will have all clocks locked, u wont be able to oc with even 100 phases

    Im assuming that the skull decal has voltage read points in its eye sockets? If so thats quite a nice, gamer / enthusiast esque touch.
