I don't think pci-e 3 is going to happen till you start seeing 32nm or possibly 28 nm chipsets. It's way way to high frequency for 55 nm. The jump from 80 nm to 65 and 55nm chipsets got us sata 3. I think they make the usb 3.0 chips seperately on 40nm. And you can't really use seperate chip for pci express. So it's going to be a long long wait.

Ah double checked it's only 8 ghz. So 40nm should be able to do it. Which means someones got to get a free 40nm fab plant that isn't pumping out gpu's or cpu's or ram. And multi chip packages are much harder to fab than any of those so they will go back to horrible yeilds.

You can even use a mouse!

(For those that don't know UEFI = Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)
I have read the biggest concern is security for some reason. I have only seen it on an IBM blade server.

UEFI is dumb.

I personally hate it.

Buggy (reletive to bios, still plenty stable though), mouse just doesn't work very well.

I miss the blue screen.

yeah this board obviously is soooo much far behind the real boards?Are you serious?Totally random statement.
That is just bollocks. 8x won't see any performance loss, 4x will see some loss. Any less and it's a waste of time.

Typical ASRock, they do make some awesome products. I love my board. Power, Reset and CMOS buttons on the motherboard, diagnostic LED panel, great PCI-E layout.

Technically the chipsets are the same since the 700 series, the southbridge is what's different (SB750/SB850 and so on)

The socket is "AM3b" which is obviously AM3+ - it says it supports the new bulldozer CPU's as well.

I think I'll be buying one of these

As far as I've heard it isn't really needed? As we aint using nearly the full potential of PCI-e 2. But I could be missinformed

Take my money!



I've been holding onto this garbage board until bulldozer-supporting ones come out, hopefully they release these a little sooner than the actual CPUs.

Well it's definatly a interesting layout, did anyone else notice the fan headers, 4x 3 pin, and then 2x 4 pin cpu fans. Looks like this board is designed for a push pull setup and alot of fans. But like it was said before then cmos battery is in a bad place as well as the 8 pin cpu power. Then of course theres the mystery of the 6 sata and then the extra 2 at the bottom of the board. Definatly a strange layout that could prove to cause problems, the features seem nice but the layout doesn't seem very practical.

If you're playing games at high resolutions with high-end graphics cards, you can saturate PCI-E 2.0 8x bandwidth. Not sure about 16x.
