Is it illegal...


If someone posts pictures of a P55 mobo and a new LGA1156 CPU before the release date. Is it illegal?

mm.. If it is illegal if you signed a NDA. Then why do sites like Tom's Hardware, Anandtech sign NDA's?

Because if they don't, intel won't send them the chips before the release date.

If you bought 'em legally i can't see you having problems. That said, i'm an auto mechanic, not a lawyer.

They are already on the shelfs in AU I believe, so posting them couldn't do any harm.

The P55 new southbridge "PCH" is really odd..

I get 3 drives together in RAID 0. I get 50mbps max on HDtune

On my ICH6R I get around 110mbps with 2 drives.
