AND THE LADS at HardOCP showed us a really nice picture of what will become a dual AMD board based on the Nforce FX chipset from Nvidia.

Nvidia denied such a project for a long time but obviously they figured that there is not much competition around that that some extra bucks could be made in this market segment.

We believe that company counts that it can now get some extra popularity since we estimate that it will squeeze some relevant performance increase from Dual Athlon marchitecture.

This looks to us very attractive, specially combined with two FSB 333 Athlon 2600+ MP and we can be quite sure that Nvidia will use two memory controllers just as with the Nforce 2 chipset and it's quite obvious as they separated two memory modules from each other

Was I the only one that was disappointed that there's no onboard video? I suppose if you're spending $400 on a mobo, you can spare $75 for a GF4 MX, though. There's no shortage of PCI slots.

One thing you can tell from this board is that it is _not_ made for 1U servers. Way too many PCI slots, and the BlueMagic PCI slot obviously wouldn't belong. Thus, this seems to be a workstation motherboard design.

If they can get the cost down to $200, I might even buy it... but I find that highly unlikely.

The funny thing is that NV doesn't know about this. Asus probably scirbbled this and slapped a name heh :)

A wannabe mobo weeeeeeeeeee!

The drawing is very much real and came directly from Asus. If you choose not to believe that, then don't. :rolleyes:

It might have come from Asus, but that sure don't mean that it's an actual board or it's going to be built.

HOWEVER--I sure as hell want one. :D
