    Do enthusiast boards come with PCI slots, old Serial/Parallel connections or PS2 mouse/keyboard slots anymore because I can't stand having those in brand new boards. I wish they would just disappear. Who in the heck is going to buy a $300 mobo and put who knows how much money into a gaming rig and still use them. I think it's just wasted space/resources and they should stop including them. Also, what happened to UEFI? Is that being implemented by any of the motherboard manufacturers into their current/future products? because if I remember correctly, UEFI was supposed to be implemented by late 2007. Thanks Tim for the updates...I'm really enjoying this....

    Layout is a bit poor imo, and yeah they did remove 2 memory slots. Beyond that, wtf is with them using an AM2 heatsink mount with an LGA775 board. I bet there'll be at least a few miffed customers when they find out that their stock sinks won't work.

    Totally agree with you about the legacy connectors, there's just no need.

    As for UEFI, it won't be around for several years yet. Vista doesn't support it and, because there's no end user advantage, development isn't being pushed.

    perhaps they took 1 of their existing 7050 AM2 mobos & slapped an LGA775 socket on it for the show as a concept?
    afaik the Intel version of that chipset isn't due until significantly later in the year.
