Keen eyed bit-reader Risky (he's obviously busy at work then...) spotted this gem on the Intel website. The D955XBK mobo is, in Intel's words:

"optimized to deliver new levels of performance that are essential for needs of the advanced gamer and power-user."

It's based on the (If you hadn't already guessed from the name) 955X Express Chipset, which combines support for dual-core processing, Chipzilla's EM64T and Memory Pipeline tech, a 1066-MHz system bus, dual-channel DDR2 667 memory, x16 PCI-Express and native SATA (3.0Gbs) RAID.

The board also has eight (count 'em!) hi-speed USB2.0 ports, 1394a and 1394b (also known as Firewire 400 and 800), and gigabit networking.

You can read the full specs over at the Intel Website, and as always you can discuss the new board in the forums here.
