Default Any News on the 790i???

I have been waiting for this board to come out forever, last i heard of it was when the 780 was released and that was about 2 months ago. So is there any news on the 790i, i.e. release date?

if you don't mind selling a kidney or two I'd think XD I haven't read enough into timings and such but with ddr3 speeds I don't think they'd matter XD I think i'll wait till they drop to a decent price though. ddr2 still performs well enough for my tastes.
