It's getting here, slowly

It's been delayed more than three months, but we just got word from DFI that the LANParty UT RD600-T2R/G will officially launch on December 15, 2006. Distributors expect the MSRP to be around $220.

We first published images of the board back in October of this year. Earlier today images of the board were posted on the net that do not represent the final design. We've been told these images are either fake or of an early prototype. The images DailyTech published earlier this year are also of the final design.

DFI claims this will be the last ATI/AMD chipset for an Intel motherboard -- at least as far as its roadmaps are concerned. No other major OEM brand has picked up the chipset for channel sales. This likely has contributed to its delay as well.

Additionally, we've also received word that DFI has an nForce 680i motherboard in the works. This board is not expected to launch until January, but it will be a significantly different design than the nForce 680i reference boards.

AMD shall remain AMD, Intel shall remain Intel.

It was bound to happen, especially with the aquisition of ATI by AMD. Now AMD/ATi can concentrate on their own forefront, which should prove interesting.

Cheer DFI for making the 680i board with no freaking solid capacitor and way to to with the $hity color (orange and yellow). --to be expected!

"No solid capacitors and orange and yellow we're proud of products, your truely-- DFI"

Says who? All the pictures you looked at were either prototype or fake. Chill out.

Its sad that all this R&D went into RD600 just for ONE company to release ONE board. Ridiculous if you ask me. This AMD/ATI merger just gets worse and worse.

No, i haven't seen any 680i board yet. So you telling me the RD600 from DFI that I and the rest the people here at overclock.net saw in the past few days was a fake/prototype pics?

My point is that DFI may release another cheap/$hitty board like the RD600. Heck, if they didn't put those solid capacitors in the RD600 in the first place, what make you think they would put it in the 680i?

Solid Capacitors don't matter, geeze

Lack of solid capacitors does not mean it's of low quality, far from that. They don't affect OCing so it's worthless to almost everyone here

As for the colouring, that is just personal opinion, nothing more

Solid Caps only matter if your keeping your board for a long time like 5-7 years. I mean most of here our longest cycle might be 3yrs which means Solid Caps would not matter.

I don't know what the hell your talking about but all the DFI LanParty series boards were, and still are, great overclockers.

The article also said that they were going to make a 680i-based board with a slightly different design.

I don't know about you guys but i hate those tall/long capacitors cause they seems very easy to break off if you're trying to remove or install you hardwares! (I almost broke one of them! SEE THAT WEAK THOSE CHEAP STUFF ARE MADE OF?!) THAT WHY I HATE NON-SOLID CAPACITORS MOTHERBOARD ESPECIALLY NEW BOARD THAT DON'T HAVE THEM!!!.

Freaking company want to save the extra buck since they NOT rich as other motherboard manufacturer's. Ask yourself this question, how many motherboard had DFI made since they have started making motherboard. Look at other manufacture companies and how many motherboard they've made.
