    The Inquirer has managed to get pictures and details of the nForce 680a chipset, which will remain the only 4x4 supporting chipset until AMD prepares a revamped RD580 chipset - to be launched at the same time as the R600. Again ASUS is the first to show 4x4 motherboard dubbed LN64-SLI Deluxe. The board has traditional green colour of the PCB with eATX design for two processor sockets, which are called L1FX instead of typical Socket 1207 nomenclature. The board comes with four PCIe x16(electrical) slots: two of which work with 16, and two works with eight lanes(x8). There's also 1x PCIe x1 slot and only one PCI slot. The board should be available at the same time as FX-74 CPUs, which is currently slated for the end of November, maybe November 30th.

    No offense, but she's an ugly monster :) I like the looks of most 771 boards a lot more. Even the average Opteron board looks better. The quad SLI option is nice, once it actually gets supported.

    4 PCI-e slots is just insane. If manufacturers keep doing this, we are going to need a new ATX standard

    Hahahahaha.... ahahahahaha... oh god, I can't stop laughing...

    They'll have to PAY ME to put that stuff in my rig for a Gaming PC, not the other way around.

    Oh and Ricky, AMD Socket 1207 is LGA (Landing Grid Array) like Intel's 775.
