Sapphire hash out that very first time it will announce Intel based mainboards in the high-end sector. This might come as a blow to many, but back in June 2010 news burst that many key EVGA motherboard team members left and joined with Sapphire.
With AMD Fusion motherboards coming out and Sapphire needed to get in the high-end enthusiast motherboard market this provide perfect sense. Sapphire will be introducing two motherboards to market. The initial one will be the Pure Black X58 and the second will be the Pure Black P67 Hydra. We are going to begin with the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra motherboard as this is the motherboard for the latest Intel Sandy Bridge processor that was declared last week.
