It's getting here, slowly

It's been delayed more than three months, but we just got word from DFI that the LANParty UT RD600-T2R/G will officially launch on December 15, 2006.  Distributors expect the MSRP to be around $220.

We first published images of the board back in October of this year.  Earlier today images of the board were posted on the net that do not represent the final design.  We've been told these images are either fake or of an early prototype.  The images DailyTech published earlier this year are also of the final design.

DFI claims this will be the last ATI/AMD chipset for an Intel motherboard -- at least as far as its roadmaps are concerned.  No other major OEM brand has picked up the chipset for channel sales.  This likely has contributed to its delay as well.

Additionally, we've also received word that DFI has an nForce 680i motherboard in the works. This board is not expected to launch until January, but it will be a significantly different design than the
nForce 680i reference boards.

There might be, considering DFI is using a passive heatsink for the NB/SB and this board is supposed THE C2D O/C board. Considering how hot the NB/SB run on 965 and 680i boards, that's saying something. For that price this might be an unbeatable deal.

The thing is, with current C2D you get such great overclocks even on $100-150 boards, why spend another $100 to get an extra 100-200MHz if you already have a 1000MHz overclock? It's not really worth the extra money when you already have massive gains.

I think it will have to have a really strong feature set/BIOS/stability in addition to OC for anyone to care about it, other than XFire users.
