If the cheaper boards also would contain solidstate caps and mosfet powercircuits then it would be cool

260£? for that board? one can only imagine what the maximus boards will cost....

Looks like a really decent board, so I may have to rethink my next update...
The I/O shield is something I've only seen with server boards so far; it's nice to finally see it in desktop boards.

Less than £260 :)

I thought the Maximus was the Top board as it's a ROG board.
What does it lose?

There won't be Draft-n wireless for a start... I'd guess that's around 20 percent of the price of this board.

wow.. lol... a asus rog board for less than a non rog asus board... i wasnt expecting that to happen.

Well the ROG is specifically gaming and enthusiast, not an all-inclusive feature orientated product.
naokaji 1st October 2007, 17:02 Quote
Sounds good.. i'might consider getting one of the Rog's... except if the P5E3 without Wifi and with DDR2 support comes in nice and cheap.

and hear was me thinking a nice cheap p35 would do me... the embed linux is an awesome idea with a lot of potential.... could this be community modded for more features

Nice board, if it supported SLi I would drop money on that today without hesitation due to the sheer value in all those features.

When will we see a response from Nvidia so that those of us who want SLi can get in the game?

looks very good, it's for the riches with an extra 200 to drop on a memory.

and i love your labeling of everything on second page. that's what a buyer would like to know!

what will be the real deal is yet to come: ROG boards. those are the real boards us, gamers (i assume post on this forum are), will buy (if we are loaded)

when does this board go on sale?

too much copper, why don't they just use active cooling?

Noise :P No one wants 40mm screamers in a system.

Board goes on sale next week or so.

I tried SLI, but it didn't work :( Nvidia response is soon-ish, for DDR2 at least.

As for installing your own stuff - I looked but there's no option stick stuff on the linux module.

you know Intel had a SLi system with X38 last week on demo. when do you think those kind of motherboards will be out?

SLI will be on Skulltrail only not on "normal" x38.... and they are putting a extra chip on the Skulltrail boards which the bios / driver will require to be present to allow for sli operation on Skulltrail but to prevent it from happening on other intel chipsets.
Bindibadgi 2nd October 2007, 11:21 Quote
They're dropping in an nforce chip afaik.
Tim S 2nd October 2007, 11:44 Quote
yep, there's an nForce 100 chip on the Skulltrail board.
wuyanxu 2nd October 2007, 13:14 Quote
so what sort of numbering will Skulltail have? X49 or something?

i've now got my eyes on one of those, and the processor after Penryn, plus a next genre graphics card. :)
pav1974 3rd October 2007, 01:16 Quote
will there be a next generation ati graphics card coming out soon? i would hate to buy the 2900 now and find out 2 weeks later a new one came out, does anyone know?, thanks
naokaji 3rd October 2007, 10:32 Quote
well..there are pictures making their rounds on the web about the 2950 cards... but.. the release date is just speculation and the ones in the know are under nda.

I'm kind of out of touch given that my last high-end board was i875, but I realy don't get the point of bundling in all this junk. I might want to go for the X38 premium ofver P35, but I'll have my own sound card, wifi and whatnot, thank you.

Surely there's a market for something more streamlined?
