Apparently, better SATA and greater PCI-E bandwidth.
Not sure what half of it means though.

Means a nice new shiny chipset to play with.

They've got the chipsets, the motherboards and video cards down, now they just need a kickass CPU to go with them

More features on your motherboards featuring the AMD chipsets. Crossfire x16 +x16 instead of x8 + x8. More USB ports on the I/O Panel and on the motherboard itself. Faster SATA II speeds it looks like, and actual AMD Gigabit Ethernet Ports. I just hope it's Quad Gigabit instead of Dual.

The biggest thing would probably be Fusion support, the rest is just your standard chipset upgrade (ie more usb ports, better power management, etc.). Nothing real game-changing here.

biggest thing i care about is the clocking...that will be interesting...

yes i know overclocking is mostly from NB, but you never know...

and it should replace the old south bridge, and cost the same so win win.

I'm really interested how Fusion will do.
