I saw those... what kind of clock levels and latencies are we at with DDR3 system memory?

Yes, it is the upcoming Intel chipset with support for DDR3.

Down to one PS2 port. I like it. :D

We're not going to see any advantage until clock speeds increase. Luckily we've got those damn early adopting guinea pigs like jAKUp to test everything for us. :D

I doubt he would cause the board doesn't seem to support SLI. 2nd PCI-E x16 slot only runs at x4 electrically.

Initially 1066 for DDR-3 with 6-6-6 or 7-7-7 latencies. They have other design advantages though, like caching etc. that makes them much faster than DDr-2. Can't remember where I read it, it was a few days ago. :(

I see, thanks for the info. Still, I won´t upgrade to DDR3 until CL4 latencies and/or 1366 speeds.

I think the number of PCI-E slots is really weak.

only one gpu and limited expandibility otherwise.

I wish ATI would make a 775 chipset for intel that runs cool like the crossfire 3200, and have support for PCI-E 2.0 (3 x16 slots 2 x1 slots 1 x4 slot), quad sli, and auxilary power connection.

That's a good point. I guess well have to wait for nForce 7.

ASUS Bearlake P35 Chipset

Yellow Memory Dimm is DDR2.

Orange Memory Dimm is DDR3.

I really like the fact that they'll support both, DDR2 and 3, at least on some board AFAIK.

But doesn't it also mean you can use 2xDDR2 or 2xDDR3, but not 4xDDR2/3?

orange & black support DDR3 only. 4x
yellow & black support DDR2 only. 4x

Wow, that looks nice. And look at that...more PCI slots. Goody. I mean, other good motheboard DON'T have 3 PCI slots.

Yes, 3 PCI slots is a must. I love Asus for this (having Asus Commando). You can insert Creative X-Fi (PCI), Asus Wifi (PCI) and a DVB-T tuner (PCI as well) into your mobo easily. PCIe is useless, except for GPUs.

Oh, yea that tripped me up first too.. There seems to be two differnet mobo's.. one mobo has orange and black slots, and hte other has yelow and black slots.

This is good, cause, I'm planning on getting 4 sticks of 1 gig ddr2 800 ram soon.. which means in hte fuutre, if I do a bump the bearlake, i could still use htem all.

It does not appear that DDR2 memory will fit into any slots on the P5K3 board because of the key.

yep, same pin. but not backwards compatible. that's kind of ghey.

then again, their prefetch buffer is 8 bit (DDR3) whereas DDR2 is 4 bit.

Any word as to whether or not Barcelona or Athena/AthenaFX will support DDR3? Or might AMD just stick it out with DDR2 for awhile?

The P5K looks interesting. I have to question though the decision to put the IDE connector in such an awkward place. I wonder how these boards overclock.

Well, I'm aware of DDR3 support in AM3- I'm just curious if we'll get DDR3 support with AM2 or AM2. Probably not.

I wouldn't worry about DDR3 for at least a year. Look how long it took to get DDR2 with right timings and so on. I will keep an eye out for Corsair Dominator DDR3 modules. I hope the P35 will hit 550 FSB.

I don't know why you want a PCI WiFi card, 1# it's onboard anyway, also ABIT have a PCI-E 1x WiFi card which is what i use with my ABIT X32 MAX board as it came with it. But you can buy it seperately.

As for bearlake i am more intrested in MSI's due to the very nice heatpipe, sorry can't provide links as works disabled right menu click on web pages. *sigh* got the link for you mind.

Found the ASUS board for pre-order it's expensive about as much as a high end nForce 680i board, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/productlist.php?groupid=701&catid=5&subid=913

The heatpipe on the MSI board looks like it's taken from Rollercoaster Tycoon. And did I see a LPT port there? Thought those have been phased out on new mobos.
