"The M4E's two most distinguishing features are without a doubt its four PCI-E x16 slots."

I think you're delirious from pure unadulterated joy. You can send one of those over here if it's too much to bear, MAC.

BTW, can we draw any conclusions from the inclusion of the PLX chip? :whistle:

My fault actually. I split up the sentence at the last moment and forgot to fix the beginning.

Oops, I knew it was you. It's confusing when each comment thread is posted by SKYMTL's account.

The boards are pretty sweet, but I'm not sure the platform is... I hope Intel releases a cheap 6 core Gulftown for LGA 1366 in the interim before LGA 2011 is released.

Awesome! I'm glad I've been waiting for a new release. I just wonder what price they'll be at.

I'm confused though by this "new generation" of intel processors. Will this still be LGA1336 or a new socket and a completely new thing? Or is it just a chipset upgrade from the old X58?

I apologize for not keeping up on the latest Intel rumours.... school keeps me busy.

If someone can tell me, thanks!

Completely new socket and completely new microarchitecture. Big changes :thumb:
