no, i'm pretty sure that will need its own motherboard. and since Hammer doesn't need a memory controller on the mobo, it would be senseless to include one(added cost to user and of manufacturing).

Hammer is a totally different architecture it WILL need a new mobo

NVIDIA has already shown images of their Hammer-based nForce board.....It will follow sometime after nForce2.....

THAT should be a sick combo...Hammer and nForce....

I'll definately be lookin at nforce2 (too bad I won't need one, I have an nforce) as well as whatever they'll call the Hammer nforce :)
