Asus prepares RD600 board

AMD for Intel
Wed Dec 13 2006, 07:41
DESPITE THE RD600 being AMD's "doomed" chipset for Intel, Asus is finishing a board design for it. It was a very simple decision. It is a superior chipset for Intel, and a much better overclocker than any of Intel's chipsets.

DFI is committed to make a board and Asus will make one as well as this might be the best overclocking chipset for Core 2 Duo and Quad. Intel won't like it but this AMD-ATI chipset will help the ultimate goal to push Core 2 Duo and Quad as fast as it can.

I am sure ATI's former chipset guys will like what emerges from this chipset and some possible world records they will be able to push.

ATI has a licence to continue making Intel chipsets but the "customers will decide" whether they want to continue to drive on this dangerous road. It would be ironic if an AMD chipset sets the world overclocking record for Intel latest greatest CPUs and this is likely to happen very soon.

We expect this board in the next few weeks so you can either say late December if it's lucky or early January if it's late. We are quite sure that Asus will show it at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). µ
