R680 To Clock Above 800MHz

...it seems AMD is pushing real hard to launch it in January 2008. Apart from DX10.1, SM 4.1, PCIe 2.0 and UVD support, it also supports display port and next generation Crossfire. We learned that R680 has 320 stream processors like the R600 and supports double precision floating point. So effectively, R680 is an enhanced R600 with finer process technology and more features. CJ told us that R680 is clocked at 800Mhz+ and comes with 512MB or 1GB GDDR3 memories but we knew that R680 supports GDDR4 too. Most likely it will come with 512-bit memory interface. Along with R680, we should be seeing RV635 and RV620 replacing HD 2600 (RV630) and HD 2400 (RV610) respectively as well as HD 2950 Pro (RV670) to form a complete top to bottom line-up

Well, it`ll be similar. Expect 2/4 ram slots as they say they`re having issues with ddr2. Dunno how they`re having issues with old tech, maybe it`s to do with them trying ddr2&3 on the same mobo.

PCI loss isn`t good. They bank on u liking their sound and sa2/raid. U`d either need to get a newer pci-e sound card or w8 for a physx/tvcard/raid pci-e.

For the most part tho, a very high % of peoples will be ok with one pci slot. If u`r in the lower % I guess u just overlook it. Like options myself.

2 ddr2 ram slots, 4 ddr3 ram slots. 4 x16 pci-e slots.

Was lookaing at this earlier.

From what I have seen, asus maximus vs gigabyte vs p5k vs p5b... x38 is not much of a step forward, being beaten by older mobos in some aspects and only leading very slightly.

Holy crap. Pre-watercooling does sound good though. ;)
