Foxconn has Nforce 5xx AM2 boards

CeBIT 2006 Ready, waiting for AMD
Sun Mar 12 2006, 12:25
FOXCONN is getting ready to announce its AM2 based motherboard. The design is ready and all the OEMs in the world can enjoy the love of the DDR2 with the socket AM2 platform.

The board has a rather massive cooler but it is still a single chip design and we suspect it has two times 8X PCIe graphic slots. It is based on Nvidia's MCP 55 and Nvidia already announced that it will brand this chipset as Nforce 5xx.

The board is branded as Foxconn Winfast MCP55PM2AA-8EKRS2 and we are sure that it won't be easy for customers to remember that. It features two PCIe 1X slots, two PCI slots and four DDR 2 ram slots. The sign says that the board supports DDR 2 400, 533 and 667 but we are sure it will be able to support DDR 2 800.
