Looks really nice. These speed rates keep climbing as technology improves.

That's alot of SATA ports on there, guess you could cram that many drives in there, but damm.

Also, dumb question but I only see the 2 SATA III ports (the white ones) and 6 SATA II Ports along with the 2 eSATA, but it says there is 10 total SATA II. Is it counting the SATA III as SATA II?

SATA II and III count as SATA ports in general, but your right, eSATA is separate and should not be counted. If eSATA was counted towards the total count Gigabyte's P55 UD5 would have 12 SATA ports.

It counts the SATA/ESATA II & SATA III ports.

Either way, these boards look nice, but I wonder if there is any difference between them and the current boards performance wise.

I thought that I read a report from TR-News that tested the new Seagate 6.0Gb/s drive against a WD 1tb Caviar Black and hardly noticed any increase in performance. Of course what can take advantage of that kind of bandwidth at this time?

EDIT:

Here's the link to the TR-News report

April 2010 is the release date.

We should be golden and ready to go. AMD doesn't set back chipsets.
