Yes, all X58 boards will be compatible with the upcoming Intel Gulftown CPUs (32nm and 6-core), just a bios update!

6 core!!  Ok it might be time to upgrade.  I'm still on a two core bad boy!  I think I still have a socket 7 somewhere (not old enough to win the 'oldest motherboard comp though  :-[)

It should have SATA 3 (6 Gbit/s), USB 3.0 and 3x more power in USB, the same as these ones: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,763.0.html
