Supposedly they actually used copper for the Formula this time.

The Impact doesn't look much different IMO.

Surprised by the Impact. Thought they were doing away with the VRM daughter card this gen. Wonder if that will be Deluxe feature only....or leaked pics of early boards didnt have it on purpose. Either way...get in line Skymtl....as it may not look much different...but it sure looks purdy to me. :P

Does anyone know this time if it is possible to boot from an M.2 SSD (like the Samsung XP 941) with these new boards?
