<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">NVIDIA has remedied this situation and the nForce 680i SLI will officially support a 1333 MHz front-side bus. Whether or not this will support Intel’s upcoming Conroe 1333 MHz front-side bus refresh is unknown. Nevertheless, the supported 1333 MHz front-side bus will allow overclockers greater headroom with current overclocking friendly Core 2 Duo processors. NVIDIA has improved the dual-channel memory controller as well. The nForce 680i SLI’s memory controller now has memory dividers capable of support DDR2-1200 memory. Also supported is NVIDIA’s SLI-Ready memory with Enhanced Performance Profiles.<br><br>
Graphics expansion will be a key point of nForce 680i SLI motherboards. In addition to the two full-speed PCI Express x16 slots, nForce 680i SLI motherboards will have a third PCI Express slot for NVIDIA’s unannounced three-GPU applications. This will most likely be a form of HavokFX SLI physics processing to counter ATI’s upcoming triple-play physics processing. The third slot will electrically have eight lanes routed to it.</td>

Good God! That sounds like an animal! You think with the improved mem controller, intel guys will finally be able to OC decently on an nForce board?...That would be the life.<br><br>
Mobo's with this chipset should prove to be mighty expenseive though...probably upwards of $250-$300 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"> Everything is getting too expensive!

Hmm only 4 SATA ports and one PCI-E slots on the low end but still cheap for a low end C2D board.<br><br>
Also the high end version will cost at least $250 I bet. Mobo's and RAM is becoming very expensive lately espically for C2D/Q2D. I mean it costs $500-600 for one of these mobo's and some average DDR2-800 CAS4 memory, and you are only gonna stick a $300 E6600 in it?
