Nice board. Kinda dragging AM2 up to date.

So this being an announcement, Gigibyte should follow soon enough, few weeks later Abit will announce (even tho there are pics of their orange board going around), then just after that the ASUS will hit the shelves (prob WC 19th Nov). Followed quickly by Gigibyte and 3 or 4 weeks later Abit.

Hmm, an Abit board on the shelves in January if I`m lucky.

Bah sucky timing. Alteast we can now see the boards that will bring AMD out of 2005. I reckon these boards, new quad, new 8800 - that`s gonna kick some serious gaming butt.

EDIT: Infact Gigibyte: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=682167 for pre-order now.

I wouldn't be getting my hopes up, I have a feeling that Phenom is not going to be anything special.

In terms of performance expectations of this line of cpus. I have a feeling that, as the x2 6400+ performs just above the C2D E6700 (@ stock out of the box, gaming-wize), the likes of x4 9700, although labeled similarly to the coming QX9650, will perform around the Q6600/QX6700 (approx. 3600 3dmark06 cpu) - stock.

EDIT: I`m sure even the x2 6400+ performance will improve put in these boards.

I can`t see it wiping the floor and doing 4500 marks, out of the box and costing $288+. That pricing puts it in direct competition with the $279 Q6600. If it`s performance is just as good, they`ve done a pretty good job marketing wize without looking to compete with the $1k Intel chips.

And if it sustains the AMD memory bandwidth legacy, and is allows itself to be clocked suitably - who knows.

Q6600 is a pretty popular chip atm, beat that or compete with it I think is the goal here. The processors to follow, again who knows.

On a purely pessimistic note..... wouldnt several of the laws of physics (and common sense) imply that those funky little ram plates will be pumping heat from the NB into the ram...

Yes, what a bunch of dorks... This heatpipe fad really needs to go by the wayside unless companies start using solid copper heatsinks with pure copper heatpipes. This painted aluminum garbage is absurd.

some company should have come up with an awsome chipset before now, perhaps SIS or Via or someone, and outdone amd's chipsets, or intel's, in terms of features, re-introduced PATA, for 2 ports, got rid of floppy, had upto 16 SATA ports available, upto 16 usb, and other stuff, then AM2 would have stood a chance based on just features...

and perhaps a decent audio chip, X-Fi built into the mainboard or somthing...

but it seems AM2 has just been ignored

they're finally crawling back with AM3, but i think they've just reduced the die size, upped the clock, and FSB, and marketed it as a new processor...

My thoughts exactly...
