Traditionally Intel's chipsets have always been the fastest and the best for overclocking Intel CPUs but this is about to change with RD 600.
The chipset and the boards should be ready in a little more than a month, so let's say late August, and ATI is confident that these boards will demonstrate better overclocking performance than i975 ones.
We still haven't sniffed out the commercial name for the chipset but at least we know it will end up being fast. Naturally, this board will support Crossfire boards as do i975 and P965 chipsets.
This might be a positive boost for ATI's chipset division that just lost Intel as a big, third-party partner. ATI will be after some revenge with the introduction of the fastest and the most overclockable platform for Conroe. µ
