Recently heard of the SI7. What are peoples thoughts on it. With it using SIS chipset and PC1200 RDRAM. Will the DDRII Intel chipset boards be a better choice?
Here's a photo I found of it.

Sounds pretty hot for us rdram few who are hooked on the bandwidth drug. Abit is doing this board for all of the faithfull Th7II owners who loved the board. I was supprised to here Abit doing another board with rdram but alas. I don't think anything will touch it on bandwidth also rdram just runs so smooth..
I will have to get one.............sometime

Well, I'm definitely interested!
I'm waiting for benchmarks and user experiences. Then I'll decide wheter I'll upgrade to this board or switch to DDRII, or even DDR400,, cuz I need an upgrade fast: either my mobo (TH7II-RAID) is instable or my memory is) So either way, I need to buy a new mobo& memory
But I f I look at the features listed at the Abit forum, it's a pretty cool board.

Cool


By the time DDR-II comes along, the SiS R659 will have already been released.

Default PC1200 overclocked, what will it do versus DDR400 at it's best boost?

RDRAM's future is looking pretty optimistic.

I don't see any problem with the floppy connector placement, you just fold the ribbon away from the board. But what I'm worried about is the cpu socket placement in relation to the heatsink bracket. It means the heatsink contact patch needs to be 1/2" wider! Maybe it won't make so much differance in temps if the cpu corners are exposed?
