    ASUSTek Computer launches its Republic of Gamers series of motherboards with two new boards named the 'Blitz Extreme' and 'Blitz Formula.' They come equipped with Crosslinx technology which ASUSTek says eliminates the data bottleneck found in other x16, x4 solutions. Also featured is the Fusion Block system which combines a thermal heatpipe with the ability to connect with a water cooling system.

    ASUS announced this on the 30th in their german site...I dont speak german ( Thats why i didnt post about it ) but from the translation ( through google ) you may get something out of it.

    8x and 8x means no more bottleneck. 16x and 4x means that the 4x card is bottlenecking to some extent.

    We need three X16 double spaced ports, and still have room to access a PCI, and a good set of heatpipe coolers for chipsets, or water.


    For a board such as that I would pay well over .05 mebey in the neighborhood of .07 very much.
