Foxconn BlackOps Tech Report

Foxconn is a relative newcomer to the motherboard business, at least in the retail segment. The truth of the matter is that they have been manufacturing motherboards for ages, albeit for other companies. They have only recently entered the retail market under the Foxconn brand name.

Recently, they announced the availability of their new Foxconn BlackOps X48 Express motherboard. This is the latest addition to their Quantum Force series of motherboards, which are designed specifically for extreme overclocking. In fact, it is so packed full of features that Foxconn is proudly claiming that it is far superior to what was considered the ultimate overclocker's motherboard - the ASUS Rampage Formula.

Here's a concise feature comparison of the Foxconn BlackOps X48 motherboard and the ASUS Rampage Formula :
