ASUS Nforce 590SLi

The motherboard appears on their site but is not on newegg. Anyone know anything about it. I thought that the 590 series was delayed because it was a poor overclocker.

It seems to start hitting some vendors as a pre-order:

I believe that DFI is holding back for that reason, but maybe ASUS thought it would be worthwhile to go ahead.

I can't find anywhere whether this mobo has the c-19 south bridge or the c-55. If it is the c-19 then yes it is a very notoriously bad ocing south bridge. Im gonna try to do some research to see if I can assertain what southbridge they use ill try to get back with any info I can find.

EDIT: There is nothing saying which the southbridge is but in looking DFI is not going to be releasing the c55 southbridge chip till Q1 2007 so it would be a safe bet that this board has the c19 southbridge in it. It would almost be worth it in my opinion to wait until the c55 motherboards start showing up in the retail channels as its supposed to be a real monster. Wonder if the multis will be unlocked on these boards as well?

Well, I would not hold my breath for the c55 to be any better than the c19. I could have missed it, but I haven't seen any independent tests and reviews on the c55 to show it will be drastically better. Even then, I would wait and see what the results were after people like us got their hands on them before being confident in their design.

Since it's pre-order only, perhaps this ASUS is a c55 based board and it won't ship till the end of the year.

The vendor I linked has an ETA of this week.... so I am guessing it's not the c55 board then.

EDIT: also pre-order in the UK, ETA 9/25.
