    whats the deal?

    i saw plenty of boards that where going to be made that sported the 980a chipset but none have made it out to the public.

    this was MONTHS ago.

    what happened?

    the nvidia reference board didnt even make it out to production.

    anyone have any info?

    For NVIDIA's reference board to make it to production, someone like EVGA should step forward. It's not a big fan of AMD, even if it's working on products based on an nForce chipset. Don't expect a performance AMD platform product from them.

    MSI has already announced the NF980-G65, which is a socket AM3 motherboard based on nForce 980a SLI, complete with DDR3, ESA, and NVCC support. ASUS' earliest roadmaps listed M4N82T Deluxe, which is a AM3, DDR3 version of the nForce 980a SLI board it currently sells.

    i heard the notice when msi said it was working on it (apart from the 980a)

    looks like a fine board. Sadly it uses a crappy 4 pin atx instead of 8 pin eps and the sli would be only 8x to each slot (still 2.0) but maybe u can have a good oc from it.

    My vote: BUY IT
