You'd have to really love your AMD to own one of these things, at that price.

If HWC does review this board, make sure you guys test a AMD and a Nvidia card in there and see how well they work together.

If you pay that much money for an AMD board, you're nuts. For that price you can get a Rampage III Formula.

So, this basically takes the one main reason to buy AMD (price/performance) and tosses it out the window.

I honestly don't see any reason to buy this motherboard, unless you're upgrading a current AM3 rig. New system builds would be better off looking at i5/i7 rigs for that price.

I am pretty sure I'll be buying an AMD system in the next month because of this motherboard. There just isn't any Intel boards w/ the same features + the Lucid chip.

I'm in agreement with lowfat. Although it still remains to be seen, the cross-platform GPU setup could be a serious game changer. I'd certainly be interested to see what happens when a 5870 Eyefinity setup has a GTX480 running along side it to contribute horsepower and PhysX. I know lucid's been toyed with before, but if this MB gets it right... well, we'll just have to see.

Yeah if they got lucid down i'd bet it'll be an interesting board, otherwise that price is atrocious
