Not really too bothered about them taking out the PCI slots - I think it's about time. I only wish they had done it sooner, so that I could have something that is actually useful instead. (It's my only gripe about my GA-P55M-UD2)
apparent "leak" on a forum? with wording such as "Win7 in box"
i don't know, IF this is true, it's really confusing numbering.
Firstly, who cares about the old PCI slots. They clutter up the boards are bloody useless to gamers.
Omission of even a single PCI slot and no usb3 support is very poor. I'll be skipping this 'revision' methinks.
I'd also assume with the 'overclockable' chipset that it'll be a bit dearer than the standard chipset, plus the fact you've to pay for an overclockable cpu anyway.
so are we assuming you need a Z chipset to change the multi on your K processor?
Good excuse for a soundcard upgrade!
PCI has had its day, let it die in peace.
Sounds just as bogus as when I first read it about a week ago.
So... This chipset is the overclocable one to the socket 1155...
What about socket 2011? Is it a server socket or it's the new socket to Ivy Bridge in the end of 2011?
Never mind PCI/Overclocking, still no on-board RAID6?!?
Rather ambiguous -- is it still the case that you'll need a K series processor for OC?
Agreed with previous sentiments about PCI -- still useful, but going/gone the way of IDE and AGP.
It's good to see the death of outdated kit such as PCI, but the lack of USB3 is a shame.
Yes, i knew me PCI Express x-fi would come in handy one day
I have a PCI X-FI which I'm perfectly happy with and wouldn't want to have to change if I upgraded, Luckily I'm also perfectly happy with the rest of my system so I won't have to make the change anytime soon.
Not if you have a perfectly useable X-fi Xtreme music soundcard that still sounds better than the onboard HD audio of most motherboards.
Yay for legacy free. As long as it doesn't have ps/2, parallel, serial, pata, or... i was about to say VGA (i assume d-sub) but nvm...
I have a very good isa sound card and i am pissed that all modern computers don't come with an isa slot.
Because onboard RAID sucks at doing even RAID5 let alone RAID6.
Anybody thinking of doing RAID 5/6 should be looking at a dedicated RAID card.
Granted this is an enthusiast board, but...
There are a lot of hardware bits, especially in the business and industrial field, that still run on legacy hardware. Is there such a thing as a PCIe modem? How about a PCIe serial card. A lot of stuff still runs over the RS-232 interface. It's easy enough for us to say "Oh, who needs that anymore", but doubtless there is someone for whom their old hardware is mission critical.
