    So... a cheaper version of something extremely over-priced? Cool, cool...
    Still I'm not overly interested.

    I like the Hydra chip idea , but it would be nice if they had it on other motherboards because I dont plan on going back to AMD again unless AMD catches up with INTEL.

    Interesting idea. Must admit the Hydra is looking pretty good each time I hear something new.

    I'd be more interested in this board, minus the Hydra. The power phases of existing 870 boards don't look as complex or robust as this. If a board like that could be built down to under £100 and it were a great overclocker, like the Crosshair IV for example, it would be an absolute steal!

    Under £100 for 10 phase DrMOS? Keep dreaming, Roadie ;)

    I like the idea of Hydra and overall seems like a better design plan then what nVidia and ATI have in terms of their multi card solutions but this is still fairly young and can be improved upon but still impressive.

    I like the idea of a camouflage tablecloth it speaks simple yet hard to see which is a great backdrop for this MB.

    I prefer this camo pattern over the digital one.

    Interesting idea, atleast this will allow more flexibility when choosing motherboards and graphics cards when you want to go to x-fire/sli. Mind you it's still quiet far from being mainstream so it'll be interesting to keep an eye on this and how it's received.

    Good idea but I don't think it will catch on really.
