    not yet, but I'd guess that it's in the same range as the P965 boards.

    Gah, again. Only six onboard sata ports. And what's a floppy port still doing on motherboards these days? Why isn't 8 sata ports a standard? Or at least bung another port on the controller that the esata port uses. Moan moan.. :)

    hmmmm bearlake... anandtech has a review that compares DDR2 and DDR3, and its using P35 chips... it shows DDR2 on P35 is faster than other chipsets....

    now that ive given up on any multi-graphic solution, i dont care about SLI or crossfire capable boards... as long as a video card works at least just as fast on their respective chipsets (Geforce on a nvidia chipset or Radeon on ATI chipset), im happy... im getting it........

    I too saw the article on Anandtech - this looks to be a good chipset (bye bye P965).

    Looking at the board I'm thinking look out Asus. The important question for me is how is Foxconn's support?

    Look at all those unpopulated solder pads... did they cheap out on us?

    I've had two Foxconn (OEM Gateway) mobos before, and looking at them I've noticed a similar thing... all have features planned into the board, but never populated. Additional USB ports, etc. all unpopulated. My question, is why?
