Epox MF570 SLI motherboard
Epox announces several new motherboards for 2006

With today's AM2 announcement, the slew of motherboard announcements is already upon us.  Epox has half a dozen AM2 motherboards lined up for 2006, and the company has decided to lead off with the nForce 570 offerings first.  The company's first AM2 motherboard, the MF570 SLI, is expected to be available immediately.

The MF570 SLI features the typical ritz of an nForce 570 motherboard: dual Gigabit LAN, 7.1 channel Realtek ALC883 audio and eight SATA 3.0Gbps interfaces.  Gigabit LAN is provided by a pair of Marvell 88E1116 ethernet controllers.  Like all other nForce 570 motherboards, the MF570 SLI has two x8 lane PEG interfaces that are automatically configured for x16 support when one card is placed in the PEG interface or dual x8 when two cards are inserted -- no more paddle cards like with nForce 4.  The nForce MF570 SLI is expected to cost less than $150 at availability.

Epox will follow up the MF570 SLI launch with an ATI Xpress 3200 board, the RD580 XR, and an nForce 590 SLI motherboard, the MF590 SLI2.  A knockdown version of the MF570 SLI will launch later this summer as the MF570-VP, which lacks SLI capabilities. We got a sneak peak of a few of these motherboards back at CeBit, but retail components will not show up for another few weeks. 

Three more middle of the pack nForce 570 and 550 SKUs will show up in the fall, primarily targetted for the sub $100 market.

Picture Sizes

Thumbs up for DailyTech and their obscenely high resolution images. It's a lot better than those news sites with those really small thumbnail-esque images.

I like the big thumb nails. They let me see more, and it isn’t like they slow the page down much.

I really like that when you click on them they are huge. That way I can pull little details out of them, like the words on the bottom of the boxes or the barcodes on the boards. I get so tired of going from site to site looking for basic info that I can almost see in the picture, but is no where listed on the site.
