Hey guys, I was at MSI's headquarters in Taipei yesterday and they were showing off their upcoming P35 Platinum "Bearlake" board. They allowed me to take some pictures and said it was OK for me to post them here... There's some quite interesting features at a first glance -- check out the badass heatsink on the northbridge, and also check out the number of USB ports on the back. We're told that the board should be released to retail sometime next month and that MSI's engineers just making some final tweaks to the BIOS. This particular version is DDR2 only and also bear in mind that the P35 chipset will be replacing P965 as the mainstream solution -- X38 will replace 975X later in the year at the high end.
