#3 ?
History hasn't taught anything to a few people here, including Ihatethedukes, but "they" all learn eventually, or some just refuse to learn it.

There's something better than the 965-S, the P5B-Plus. And ASUS doesn't have poor support for Intel, that is a fact.

Whodie, DFI may spit out a board with X38 + DDR2 but Intel will take legal action and that's something DFI can't afford, it's just that simple and thus no X38 + DDR2.

What legal action, pray tell, your holy lawyerness, Nasgul?

EDIT: That's the same kind of talk that was about the RD600. "Intel will stop them from making it." They made it. It was only good, and not great but it was still made.

Kay buddy, just because you love your Asus board doesnt mean you have a piece of Jesus under your desk.. I had a horrible experience with Asus, but a wonderful one with DFI.. So your petty P5B isnt like the holy grail and this new board sucks just because of your personal preference.

Im sick of you just bashing stuff all the time, bring something constructive for once. kthxbi

Well, Asus does sound like Jesus. I can see why he would be confused.

Nasgul, I'm not trying to start a pissing match with you but the market will demand DDR2 support for at least the next 12 months.

To me it seems no different then adding the JMicron IDE controllers to the P965 chipset. Since the memory controller on Intel's remains off die and instead as a main function of the northbridge, i see no reason why a stand alone DDR2 memory controller could not be added. I see nothing illegal about this, to my knowledge the manufacturers such as ASUS, DFI, etc only purchase the chipsets and licensing rights. They are then in turn resposible for the design and any additional features the board may have (or not have). And Intel certainly isn't going to bite the hand that feeds it (i.e. all of the third party motherboard manufacturers).
