It is based on Intel's X58/ICH10R chipset, has six memory slots with support for up to 24GB of DDR3 memory, two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots, one PCI-e 2.0 x4 and one plain PCI slot, seven SATA 3.0Gbps and one eSATA port, integrated SupremeFX X-Fi 8-channel audio with EAX 4.0 support, one Gigabit LAN port, twelve USB 2.0 and two Firewire ports and bunch of features taken from the Rampage II Extreme motherboard.
