Default MSI announces its first RD790-based board

DailyTech - MSI Announces First AMD RD790 Board

i only wish for 2 PCI-E 2.0 slots, but i might make an exception if the rest of the 790FX boards have 4 PCI-E 2.0 slots too. Only time will tell.

i totally agree. Still, having 4 RV670 sounds like a good idea for playing games in high resolutions, like 1920x1200 n up.

I always did like MSI's platinum mobo's. They may be going a bit over board with some of the options, but she sure is pertty!

Advanced Micro Devices today launched a motherboard with four cores, targeting gaming enthusiasts in an effort to keep pace with the release of quad-core chips by rival Intel.

AMD's Quad FX Platform includes two dual-core Athlon 64 FX-70 series chips and uses Nvidia's 680a chip set. AMD's choice of components shows it is willing to follow open standards even though the company acquired Nvidia's rival ATI Technologies earlier this month, said Ian McNaughton, product manager for Athlon 64 FX products.

AMD will sell the Quad FX Platform with three types of chips built with a 90-nanometer process, charging $599 for a pair of 2.6 GHz FX-70 chips, $799 for a pair of 2.8 GHz FX-72 chips, and $999 for a pair of 3.0 GHz FX-74 chips, if purchased in lots of 1,000 units.

Quad-FX is pretty old stuff (with the seven series FX anyways)

Newegg.com - ASUS L1N64-SLI WS Dual L (1207FX) NVIDIA nForce 680a SLI MCP SSI CEB AMD Motherboard - Retail

thats the board your talking about ^ ......

but if you look on some sites... the q6600 is better for your cash then the Quad-FX plus for some reason the 1 FX-7x CPU performs better than two on that board....

Quad-FX is old... like February was when it came out...

but ya it still used 90nm... only AMD's that currently use the 65nm is the Brisbanes and the BE-2k series and Barcelona

future wise, the Phenoms x2, x3, x4 will be using 65nm....

only the K8 CPU's use 90nm. K10 does not use 90nm.
