We've obtained some images of ASUS' new Immensity concept board, which appears to have a Radeon HD 5770 onboard!

8 SATA ports, two PCI-Ex16 and CF support? If it has USB3.0 and SATA6Gbps this could be the perfect board for me

i just cant pull my head around the fact the gpu is mearlly sitting on a tiny fraction of the cooling solution.

just doesnt look like the heatsink on the board will do its job against a 5770

and also the simularities between the boards gpu shown at computex to the redwood is too much to give a miss...

I'm with ghosthud on this one. It does look more like a 5670 to me, and a couple of other websites say the same thing.

Really cool idea but I think the X58 isnt the right market to be looking at. people who buy x58 are probably looking at high end HD58xx and GTX4xx cards. They should have made it p55 IMO

its a 5770 GPU onboard

Watch this video at 58 seconds he tells what GPU it is.

Heres another source

desktop gamers were thrown a bone with this gem. Dubbed Immensity, this concept X58 mainboard has plenty of room for an ultra-speedy Core i7 processor, but what makes this one unique is the built-in GPU. Nah, it's not some lame-o integrated chip that chokes up when playing back 480p versions of last night's Glee -- it's a full-fledged ATI Radeon HD 5770

http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/05/a...rated-ati-rad/

@ Delusion: Im kind of with you on that. X58 motherboards are already too expensive and adding the Lucid with an onboard GPU would make that motherboard as expensive as building an X58 MOBO , I7 920 and 6GB of ram , but I see some people that are willing to spend stupid ammounts on their Rig.

Loving the way they scattered the resistors around like ants.

Similarly to MSI's experiments, this mobo will hit the shelves with an amount of time before some1 leaks 'X68' details.

Existing stock, experiments, pretty good results as you'll come to see. The hybrid tho, 20% expectation - good/bad ? Better than nothing I say, especially if you're an fps freak and not necessarily quality.

X58s in general will be high priced for a good while and seeing as more than 2 companies now are actually bringing these mobos from the test benches into production, I can see other companies releasing their mobos.

Didn't like this one myself, unlike the MSI hybrid options. I don't feel it's an enthusiasts board.
