My System Specs

Default AMD demoes PCIe 2.0 in action: Inquirer

Some neat shots of the new motherbaords here.

AMD WILL STAY in DDR2 land with upcoming generation of chipsets, but this does not mean their everlasting competitor will have a performance advantage. Even though AMD will use dual-channel DDR2-1066, the company still expects to beat DDR3 in performance numbers at least until DDR3-1600 becomes a reality. This is much to the fact that memory controller inside the AMD processors always worked at very high efficiency, such as 90+ percentage, while Intel is currently stuck with a frontside bus that cannot eat up more than a single DDR2-1066 channel, yet alone two (Intel and Nvidia chipsets with dual-channel memory controllers make up in write arena, since write speed is almost the same as the read speed - something that single-channel memory cannot do).
AMD will support members of 10h family (Barcelona/Agena/Griffin) with two chipsets: RD790 and RS790. RD790 is a high-peforming chipset, while RS790 features next step in integrated graphics for AMD.
