In one fell swoop, ECS are attempting to remove the cost problem inherent in switching between an Intel or AMD machine.
How does this really help with the cost problem? You still need to buy 2xCPU's 2xthe RAM, I bet this new motherboard cost just as much as 2 normal motherboards. All you are saving on is the graphics card case and drives, and you lose the ability to use both systems at the same time! Seems like a complete waste o'money to me.
Definitely agree with you Jammy...don't see the benefit of doing something like this. The only way I see this getting major play is thru OEM sales. An individual buys an OEM, does some research and then wants to do a relatively cheap switch to AMD. I would like to see some performance benchmarks from this with both Intel and AMD setups and then compare those to normal rigs for comparison. Anyone that does the research and wants to switch to AMD for performance will want to see some benchies for comparison....
