BlackOps is the first motherboard we see with most complete accessories for overclockers. It is evident to tell FOXCONN’s ambition and effort in building a gaming brand.

In the gaming test, we found X38 and X48 have better capability on their X16+X16 Crossfire support than X8+X8 on P35 and P45. This gives X48 more advantage on running high-demanding games.

FOXCONN Blackops really sets a new bar on motherboard design and innovation, including the performance, overvall board design and a complete and luxury accessories.
These inevitably make Blackops’ pricing higher than others, since X48 based motherboards are set at extreme highend segment.
If Foxconn could cut down some of the accessories, and lower the retail price, they can satisfy a lot more users with tighter budget.
