    Still no dual 16x slots? Wake up Intel.

    p45? me wants. P35 was the best chipset since the legendary bx440, it will be interesting to see how intel wants to improve that.

    Why would you ever need/want 14 SATA connections on a motherboard? That is insane, and without RAID really stupid.

    I will probably end up regretting this in 10 years like Bill and his 640K of ram

    Even if the board is $900? :p

    Areca uses Intel's RAID processors, so I suppose it isn't impossible for intel to plop one on a motherboard. Something tells me its not ever going to be on a desktop board mind you.

    I don't see the point of so many onboard SATA ports either. Just marketing, can't see anyone ever using them. Now, if they could implement a zero-channel RAID like on some server boards, it would be great.

    for that kind of data protection built in and not having to use a massive external card? heck yes.

    wouldn't be less expensive than my current Striker + Areca RAID6 card setup

    It's not Intel's doing it's MSIs and it's a basic Silicon Image chipset - even though it'll be the high end Diamond, MSI aren't stupid enough to price themselves outside the market.

    Anyone else think ICH10R's Six SATA is a bit ****? I'm gonna lay into them tomorrow morning in the press conference.

    P45 supports dual x8 PCI-E 2.0 or the same bandwidth as dual x16 PCI-E 1.
    of course if you want dual x16 PCI-E 2.0 then X38 has been out for a while ...

    I wish for dual X16 2.0 SLI on a Intel platform (and no not grandma i680) Nvida has the best cards, and Intel the best procs/chipsets, why dont they just get their heads out of the sand. Unless AMD/ATI is holding them down...

    it's not AMD/ATi holding them down it's Intel/nVidia not being able to agree on a licence deal - without tieing SLI to their chipsets why would you buy an (non-IGP) nVidia chipset over an Intel one on an Intel CPU platform mobo?
    Technically Intel chipsets can run SLI now but the nVidia drivers check for the presence of an nVidia chipset before enabling SLI.
    Give Intel SLI & nVidia lose a big chunk of revenue (iirc on launch 680i chipsets cost mobo manufacturers $140 each). Perhaps Intel aren't willing to pay the royalty per chipset that nVidia reckon they need to replace that income?

    i think it's fine, doesn't the current ICH9R have have 6 SATA ports? *looks at iP35 Pro* see, 6 internal via southbridge, and 2 external via another controller
