Don't know if anyone caught this, but within the past few days at least A88X AMD boards have started appearing through Newegg and SuperBiiz.
Gotta say, that Gigabyte board is coming in WAY less expensive than I thought it was going to be. Time and testing (hint hint) will tell whether or not this platform lives up to any of the hype at all, or if it even IS a meaningful step forward. At the 120 dollar price point for what they would consider a "gaming" board, if it delivers then that's one hell of a bargain! A little disappointed in the Asus board though. No MOSFET cooling whatsoever, which kind of defeats the point of the A88X chipset to begin with.
