    Does that mean the DFI LANParty UT CFX3200 M2 (AM2 motherboard) will be releasing sometime soon? It was planned for june/july of 2006 but they missed deadline.

    What you want for it? ;) Actually... naw would be a little too expensive to get it here... or what does it cost to send it to Germany?

    i dont think DFI will bring out a AM2 based Crossfire mobo.

    TBH, id buy this board with any questions asked then spend the rest of the month paying off for it, it will cost an arm and a leg but it would be worth it.

    Ill gladly wait after the inital rush for the first batch and wat till they have them in full retail channels.

    the new Asus Commando looks like a good choice also at the moment, tho the only thing that worries me about these new "super" mobo's is the price.

    eh not anymore...they are X16 in both lanes...... so speed wise the same as X32 SLi.

    It was looking promising to being two x16 lanes and a x8 lane like on the 680i lanes which would be really nice

    Now, if only a release date was listed (even if only tentative), as I'm looking to go Core2 Duo after the holidays (sooner if I can talk the wife into it)...

    Doesn't look much bigger than the old nForce 4 chips from where I'm sitting, and the board doesn't seem to be set up for heatpipe cooling, either...

    I'll think about getting one if K8L turns out to be a dud. If it works, though, I'm going to go K8L + Crossfire for my next system.

    That sucks, I was really hoping for it. Guess I would have to go with ECS MVP board.

    Finally a Core 2 Duo DFI board! This is VERY good news.

    If all goes to plan, I'll try and get this to perfectly match the colour-scheme of my new case. ;)

    EDIT: Any guesses on the pricing? ;)

    OOOOK need something cleared up. I thought the R600 was ATi DX10 core?

    So this mobo will support the R600 DX10 card? I am actually VERY confused now :sigh:

    The board has 3 PCI-e 16* slots, however in crossfire mode they work in an 8*8 config. The third (furthest from CPU) is a 8* slot (though is the same size as a 16*)

    Board looks to clock pretty well, seems to max ~ 510 FSB or so though which is a lot lower than the 965 boards have been hitting.
    True async memory overclocking looks very nice though, should make ram clocking nice and easy.

    Shame it caps at ~ 51- FSB though, means a 965 board is still going to be required to pull the high FSB's needed with a 6600 and 6300 under DICE :( Should make a nice 24/7 base though...

    RD(RS)600 = chipset. R600 = DX10 GPU.
    Yes the board will support R600 in Crossfire, you should be able to run R600 crossfire on any dual PCI-E capable mobo though (ie 975, RD580, RD480 etc) as long as the drivers are left "open"

    R600 is the DX10 core
    RD600 is the next chipset.

    ATI wont need heatpipe cooling like NVIDIA, since they are far better at producing low power chipsets. Most of AMD laptop parts even before the buyout were ATI chipsets because of their superior power management.

    Dann: my prediction based on what Ive seen of the architecture is: don't hold your breath on the K8L.

    AMD have a problem now, their R&D is nowhere near as advanced as Intels, their FABs are relatively dated and now they have bought ATi their budgets will have decreased MASSIVELY
