We have some updated details on ATI's R600, even though AMD are keeping very tight lipped about it all. AMD have apparently stated that R600, RV610 and RV630 demos will be running at CeBIT but no performance tests will be revealed there.

The R600 launch is slated for end of March it appears now and there are 3 SKUs; XTX, XT and XL. ATi briefly mentioned to their partners a 2nd generation Unified Shader Structure and a new hardware Crossfire for R600 family which can be bridgeless yet faster. We are not sure how does this new HW CF work out yet. The retail card is half an inch longer at 9.5" and the OEM/SI version remains the same at 12". It comes with 512-bit memory bus and 1GB DDR4 at more than 2GHz frequency. Core clock remains a mystery as yet.

I would search Ebay for a SLI-DR. Best DFI board ive ever used.

26-02-2007, 20:49:34

would not trust a mobo from ebay.

I own the asus A8N SLI deluxe so the A8N32-SLi Deluxe (newer version) would be my choice

Getting a mobo from Ebay is like trusting getting an open box from a retailer really or purchasing from somebody on a forum. Sometimes you gotta take what you can get. And yup thats my board. Its purrrrrty.

''The A8N-SLI Deluxe was an excellent overclocker, managing a maximum FSB of 330MHz, and the Premium's BIOS is well set up too. The voltages are the same; you can stuff a ferocious 3V through the RAM, but only 1.55V into the CPU. Overall, the DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR[/B] is still the better bet for hardcore overclockers.

Dropping the multiplier on our test chip, we managed to get a maximum FSB of 310MHz from the Premium. This is still a good amount of potential, although it's notably less than the Lanparty's 425MHz. ''

Hmm i think il just get the DFI from overclockers as it doesnt actually say Bgrade like some of the other makes :D

Very awesome, and if i remember you can put somethn like 4v through the ram (or just excesive of 3.2v) on the SLI-DR. Havent read the manual in a while. DFI FTW
