Postby mahin » Tue Feb 27, 2007 10:08 am

The GIGABYTE M57SLI-S4 [1] is the first-ever desktop motherboard

Lu who released GPL-licensed code last month. This state-of-the-art

latest Socket AM2. It contains tons of advanced features such as:

Support for AMD Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 processors
2X PCI Express x16 slots
3X PCI Express x1 slots

3X 1394a (FireWire) ports

16GB maximum memory
6X SATA 3Gb/s slots.
