well who wants to buy a nearly new asus p5b.. that sounds stunning and i do love to keep it all ati
Me waits - Me wants good board for O.C. - Me sounds really silly saying "Me ..."
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?
Most Powerful Partnership in History – Core 2 Extreme Meets CROSSFIRE....eh its onlu dual 8x PCIe
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.
finally! a LANPARTY Core2d!
It was looking promising to being two x16 lanes and a x8 lane like on the 680i lanes which would be really nice
3 PCI-e 16x slots, 2 PCI slots free, even with a dual-slot cooler set. What a board. DFI rawk my world.
Full specs. [/edit]
better tell them that as they've had 1 out for a while ...
not according to guys that have 1 ...
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
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.
Bindi, are you thinking K8L isn't going to the shiz niz people are expecting?
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
