New Socket does not differ from the old one... only difference is re-wiring and enabling co-existence of different power planes
The Nforce 560 is a cut-down version of its older brother, Nforce 570 - with the only real difference being support for SLI, or the lack of it. Nvidia single chip supports a plethora of different technologies testifying the nouse of its engineers.
The single chip does not need as much cooling as two or more in conventional layout. The NF560 will not lose any of the high-end features such as SATA 3.0 Gbps or RAID options. Support for a lot of USB connectors (six are at the back of the motherboard, additional four can be added) is just an additional bonus. However, favourite feature on this motherboard for author of these lines are power on and reset switches on the PCB itself.
This board is minded for the value for money buyer but puts some nice overclocking features as well.
Sadly for DAAMIT, this motherboard wants to host real Phenom processors, not single-socket versions of Barcelona (should we say Budapest). Still, for real upgradeability, this motherboard is probably not to be sniffed at, where value for money is concerned. µ
Oh and it'll also help give aural pleasure
But it might still not be enough to make virtual reality super appealing
And a ridiculous competition
Now you can talk to your silly-looking earbuds too
