see i will has a new mobo out shortly...
and they seem to be using their own chips, not via or ali or amd ones!

and it truly looks like an awesome board
PC2700 fully compatible.
fsb from 100 to 233
onboard raid
active northbridge cooling...
and what i find MOST INTERESTING: up to 1/6 PCI divider.
so you could theoretically get PC3200 DDR (or highly OC'ed PC2700) running at 200Mhz(400ddr) and PCI/AGP would still be running at spec (33/66).

yum yum yum

Is that a Northwoody in your pocket or are you just eXPited to see me?

now all we gotta do is find out how fast that new PC2700 REALLY goes to!

love to know what chipset its using too... didnt know iwill had the expertese/hardware to make their own... hmmm.

this is gettin more and more interesting:
read this article
<A HREF="http://accelenation.com/?doc=86&page=1" target="_new">http://accelenation.com/?doc=86&page=1&lt;/A>
they are saying its probably the first mobo designed for overclockers!
4 fan headers
heaps of mem timing tweaks
1/5 and 1/6 multipliers
core V in 0.025V increments... possibly to 2.0V in the future
highpoint 372 ata133 raid..
6-14x multipliers
oooh dang... ali chipset. hope its a much improved revision.
still... all in all looking very good

Ohhhh, DDR3200? Wicked!!! It's going to be amazing! I WANT THAT BABY!

Wait a sec...if DDR333 beats RDRAM, then wouldn't an Athlon w/ a 333MHz FSB and DDR 333 be able to beat a P4 in memory transfer?!

Probably! Scary thought isn't it? If the FSB is increased and DDR speed is increased, the Pentium 4 will have no advantage or the Athlon except for SSE2.

It's probably their updated chipset. Similar performance to the SiS735...perhaps slightly better.

Of course, the DDR333 support might help push this chipset over the top so to speak.

Mark-

When all else fails, throw your computer out the window!!!

and the SiS 645 is comming out shortly soon.
thats DDR 333 for the p4. i bet the same for athlon wont be far behind.

add a 333 mhz board + pc2700 ram + the 0.13 micron thouroughbred... yum
just around the time i might wanna upgrade next *grins*

The sis 735 does support ddr 333 and a 1/6 divider. Checkout the new leadtek board
