680i to support Penryn/45nm/1333mhz CPUs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was skeptical myself, however that is what the eVGA reps are saying on their message boards.

Yes, Penryn CPU's will work on the 680i motherboard.

However, a BIOS update will be needed for full functionality, this BIOS will be released in the near future.

Thanks

Yup, Penryn is fully supported, however a BIOS update is needed.

Full support for 1333MHz CPU's will also be coming soon, a new BIOS will be released within a week that will include support for these CPU's.

Yes, upcoming 1333MHz FSB chips will be supported, and 45NM CPU's.

Both will require a BIOS update though, this will be released in the near future.

Thanks,

Well, Intel only said that the official chipset that supports the Penryn are the P35, X38 chipsets.
