Waiting on the EFiX Modules
Davide assures us several modules are on the way. And we’ll be looking at giving away a few EFiX modules to users in a quick contest. Once they’re in our labs however, we’ll install them, get Leopard setup, and run a bunch of tests to see how things compare side by side to a real Mac.
Currently, the hardware we have sitting here waiting for the modules include:
- Intel QX9770 quad-core processor
- Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 motherboard
- OCZ PC2 8500 DDR2 memory, 4 GB (2 x 2 GB)
- Nvidia 8800 GTX graphics card
- 2x Western Digital WD1500 ADFD Raptor 150 GB
- Cooler Master RS-850-EMBA 850W power supply
Once we have the modules in, things should be smooth sailing.
Davide also informed us today that a new firmware will be coming out for the EFiX sometime in the second week of October of this year that will include a bunch of fixes (including the memory readouts) and several new features, including some very interesting ones that we can’t yet talk about.
We would like to thank Gigabyte for sending us a new high-performance EP45-DQ6, Intel for the QX9770 and OCZ for the memory. We’re looking forward to setting up our very own EFiX Mac clone. Also, look for out for the giveaways of the EFiX modules.
Of course, thanks to Davide for his time.
