This is promising for AMD - I'm looking forward to the benches on this board, I would like to see the A8-3870K @ 3.6Ghz Coupled with a 6850...with the rest of the crap needed You're looking at £400 - £450 for a full system there.

The scores posted here (with the GTX560) are breaching on GTX570 Territory - I think this is ridiculous - but awesome.

This is great. Asrock doing funky stuff again. I had thought that Lucid had abandoned this - glad to see I was wrong - perhaps it was the mismatched discrete cards that has been let go. If Lucid had this technology 5 years ago, I bet Asrock would have pulled off an AGP+PCIe combo!

Let's hope Asrock do an Intel version of this.

Yeah, well VIA beat Licud to it. My 4CoreDual-SATA2 does AGP+PCI-e. It's just a pain in the neck to make it work. But it works.
