Is there any board in the works that allows for a 166fsb?

Basically, is there any board that will be made in the future that will allow for a 166fsb and has a 5th pci divider? I know they are making one for the Hammers, but is there one for MP's?


Thanks

The MP/MPX Chipsets go to 150. No 333 Chipset planned for the MPs but we can always hope. The concensus is no.

There is the Iwill MPX2 that has FSB up to 200 or 250, but has no 1/5 divider, so it's not too much use over 160 or so.

I really hope we'll see one. Unless AMD breaks their trend of making XPs and MPs identical we'll see the MP 2800+s with 166mhz FSBs. That would necessitate a 333 chipset.

Nothing in the news yet, but we can hope.

But by the time that cpu comes out, the nForce 2 and KT400A will be out and have the 6th divider (hopefully the KT400A will), and then people would be wanting that :(
I know, hopefully;) they'll make a dual nForce 2 board, now that would be a nice (and very expensive) setup:D
