AM3 is still AMD's newest socket and all they have is a rebadge of the 780a. Hell, ASUS is the only one that has one on the market, and it's not even AM3. I think they're giving up on the AMD market. Not sure why, but I still would like to see them at least try.. I would love to try something other than AMD chipsets, they're getting boring.
Yes, it will replace 775, but many user wont buy the new 1156 platform, because 775 is old
775 will stay at least 2 yrs.
