    I personally wouldn't trust that... but, that's just me.

    wow...probably worst overclocker ever lol. looks like the old motherboard/sisterboard combos. Sis and Via...just eeww.

    OMG and its ECS too...definetly needs a "stay away from me" sign.

    (completely biased post over)

    well, ECS and SiS have teemed up, and just when we thought things couldn't get any worse, they had to prove us wrong!

    I bet it works better with a Intel than a Athlon.

    rofl I saw this linked somewhere else a few days back and the first thing I thought was 'they can't be serious' and 'wtf good is that for anyway?'

    A prime example of a solution looking for a problem, and since it's ECS/VIA I'm sure it won't disappoint!

    I like the potential of these types of boards, i guess i'm the only one :dunno:

    I agree with a previous poster i wouldn't trust that mobo under any circumstance, but computer engineering has to start somewhere/sometime, how about now? Like the article said, the mobo is a solution looking for a problem.

    Potential i.e. the future generations of that type of mobo.

    One day you will learn that people eat/drink/buy/wear anything even the oddest things. If this aspect of computer engineering takes off than it might open a new door in the field.

    a tear rolled down my cheek because ECS and SiS are doing this and nobody is going to follow them.

    I agree. The general prediction for SLi is it will be taken over by dual-core cards and phased out just like other old hardware. But it still seems better than merging Intel and AMD, so the results for that will be even worse from what i see.

    There is a big part of computer building that EVERYONE argues about but no one really thinks about. The famous "AMD vs. Intel" threads, remember? Merging them together into one platform takes away the BIG decision of, "Should i go AMD or Intel?" In a sense, it makes computer building that much EASIER. And i don't know about you, but i don't build/overclock computers because it's EASY. I do it for the thrill, the brain taxing, the brand dedication, the debating of products and technology, etc. Merging everything together takes most of that away...and that's just not my cup of tea.
