So... a cheaper version of something extremely over-priced? Cool, cool...
Still I'm not overly interested.

I like the Hydra chip idea , but it would be nice if they had it on other motherboards because I dont plan on going back to AMD again unless AMD catches up with INTEL.

Interesting idea. Must admit the Hydra is looking pretty good each time I hear something new.

I'd be more interested in this board, minus the Hydra. The power phases of existing 870 boards don't look as complex or robust as this. If a board like that could be built down to under £100 and it were a great overclocker, like the Crosshair IV for example, it would be an absolute steal!

Under £100 for 10 phase DrMOS? Keep dreaming, Roadie ;)

I like the idea of Hydra and overall seems like a better design plan then what nVidia and ATI have in terms of their multi card solutions but this is still fairly young and can be improved upon but still impressive.

I like the idea of a camouflage tablecloth it speaks simple yet hard to see which is a great backdrop for this MB.

I prefer this camo pattern over the digital one.

Somehow im as unconvinced as the first Hydra board.... and the next, and the next.

Interesting idea, atleast this will allow more flexibility when choosing motherboards and graphics cards when you want to go to x-fire/sli. Mind you it's still quiet far from being mainstream so it'll be interesting to keep an eye on this and how it's received.

Good idea but I don't think it will catch on really.
