I put the latest Corsair (CMD8GX 3M 4A 1600C8) DDR3 1600 2GB x 4(8G) on P55 platform.

Then I try to put the highest model of LGA1156 CPU- Corei7-870 CPU with this “Katana”.
It runs 2.93GHz, L3 8MB, Intel Turbo Mode Tech, later on, the PCU reach 133 x 24=> 3200MHz.

Hyper 8 X PI 32M=> 17m 46.468s
CPUMARK 99=> 558

DDR3 1600 CL8 8-8-24 1T
Sandra Memory Bandwidth-19881MB/s
EVEREST Memory Read-15515MB/s

I tested this motherboard under a “default-like” environment, the result is pretty high,
and I think this might be the highest performance that Core i7 can catch at this case.

FOXCONN this time has launched 2 models of P55 platform, Inferno Katana and Inferno Katana GTI.
BTW, the Fan site of Quantum Force has been renew recently,
The design looks better than last version. The product information looks improved a little.
FOXCONN Quantum Force web site

As you seen, this Foxconn Quantum force P55 new model has improved on design, component usage and OC relative tech design.
Quantum Force series, in my personal
Opinion can be “walk tall” in front of A/G/M manufacturer.

I think the Channel maintenance and its marketing are have plenty of room to be improved….
After all, Foxconn branded motherboard is just begun if compares to those Dinosaur Brand.

Hope this kind of “2nd tier” Mobo designer can carry on.
Coz, since 2006 some same tier manufacturers were quitted from market.
So, the choices of users are less and less today.
I think if Foxconn can keep the goods, it’s a good thing for users to have more choices in market.
