That’s-a sexy motherboard. Reminds me of my own, actually — I think it’s the unbelievably annoying placement and orientation of the six SATA connectors. It’s also got 10 USB ports like mine and the cooling system is similar.
The P45 series will be the successor to my P35 so I’m not surprised they’re similar, but I don’t see any really groundbreaking changes other than a faster FSB, a little future-proofing for faster memory and a better setup for Crossfire and other SLI setups. Looks solid, though.
The article also has a shot of the new Radeon 4850, but there are very few details so I don’t know why I even bring it up.
