ASUS P5QPL-VM Spotted

ASUS will be expanding its P5Q series of motherboards based on the P4x, G4x chipsets with the P5QPL-VM. This one is an entry-level micro-ATX board based on the Intel G41 chipset that is accompanied by the older ICH7 southbridge. A distinctive feature is that the board provides a DisplayPort video out connector apart from DVI and D-Sub. It also provides the ExpressGate embedded software. Being based on the older ICH7 southbridge it doesn't offer RAID, though strives to be placed in the entry-level market. Its display output options along with the ExpressGate feature could serve as selling points.

Dear Asus,

PLEASE make a MATX p45/g45 board with crossfire support.

D-sub is a waste of time. I wish all mb manufs would ditch it... since you can get vga from dongle from dvi. But a COM port or Firewire would actually be useful.

What components can you actually buy today with D-sub? But still a lot of stuff on COM or firewire

why do they put better cooling on even the G41 than the G45 board... it gets a nice copper heatsink on the nb, and the g45 board gets this dinky little aluminum one

CRT Monitors. But yes, Dongles should help - then again, dongles are more expensive than a port added on the board.

I don't see why they can't... I mean, any more they are building single card cooler set ups now...
I don't see only the older people that would need two PCI slots... But, that is just me...
