As far as I know EFi boards will not be out until the begining of next year, but I do know Gigabyte already announced a P67 board with EFI, but no AM3. Asus is also working on EFI and will probably realease them around the same time.

This is really all I could find, other than that I dont belive that those boards are out either and will not be unitl we are much closer to Bulldozer being released.

i emailed them, i believe it to be a typo, from the manufacture, in fact i emailed DFI.
i think the AM3+ will be a faster HT speed.

^Yeah, I kind of thought it was odd also, it didnt seem to me like a site that would have a product out before anyone else had it available. :)

None as far as I can tell. EFI is Intel's pet and I've never seen it on any AMD boards. Some Intel server boards have EFI or its successor, UEFI, though. It's funny that server boards would be the ones to use EFI/UEFI as many servers run Linux, BSD, or some other Unix and the Unixes don't need EFI/UEFI to boot from HDDs bigger than 2.2 TB. They can do it with an ordinary BIOS.

Also, AM3+ boards are not out yet. I'd expect to see some show up at trade shows in a handful of months as desktop Bulldozer is slated to come out in the spring.

Your going to have to wait for BullDozer's release for AM3+ far as I know, which will be anywhere from Q2-Q3 next year. :(
