Keen eyed bit-reader Risky
(he's obviously busy at work then...) spotted this gem on the Intel website. The D955XBK mobo is, in Intel's words:
"optimized to deliver new levels of performance that are essential for needs of the advanced gamer and power-user."
It's based on the (If you hadn't already guessed from the name) 955X Express Chipset, which combines support for dual-core processing, Chipzilla's EM64T and Memory Pipeline tech, a 1066-MHz system bus, dual-channel DDR2 667 memory, x16 PCI-Express and native SATA (3.0Gbs) RAID.
The board also has eight (count 'em!) hi-speed USB2.0 ports, 1394a and 1394b (also known as Firewire 400 and 800), and gigabit networking.
You can read the full specs over at the Intel Website
, and as always you can discuss the new board in the forums here
