    Even on Monday Nvidia presented the new nForce SLI X16 chipset. For the first time it provides 32 PCIe-lanes for graphics cards.
    That means every graphics card can now use 16 lanes instead of 8. Furthermore, the new version doesn’t need the add on card anymore which was used to switch between SLI and single mode.
    Apart from that, the new chipset features RAID 5, this feature was only available on Intel chipsets up to now.

    Nope, you need a ATI chipset or Intel will have a chipset that will support it soon.

    NEW Chipset HA HA HA

    Please! Do they think us for soo stupid?

    If you look closly at the Chipset diagram you will see that this is nothing new! The chipset parts are:

    The K8 Single chip solution (as a southbridge)
    and nF4 Intel edition Northbridge!

    This is nothing new!
    Gigabyte made such a board months ago! You remember the the DUAL SLI Intel Board?
    The same combination was used there, the only difference is that Gigabyte divided the PCI-Ex to 2x8 and nVidia Don't!!!

    Excuse my bad English!
