Anybody know when the 760MPX ABit WA2A is supposed to ship?

I salivate in anticipation...this could be the one I have been waiting for!

Well from what I have read:

3x 32 bit PCI
2x 64 bit PCI
1x AGP Pro-50 4x
3 phase power like other ABit boards
2x ATA133 channels

And the PSU connector is the long ATX type like the old Tyan dual-462 boards so a special compatible PSU will be needed.

bump!

Anybody know more about when we can expect this monster?

Also I just realized that the power connector is in a bad spot. Think about it...snaking that big ATX power cable past those dual HSFs and the DRAM...not a fun thing.

will that mobo hold 2 x PAL8045? it would be a killer system.

Hmm...it looks like there's a capacitor pretty close to the corner of one of those sockets that might interfere with the 8045, but you could just take a chunk out of the corner of it.
