Default Hybrid...

This one will hold both Intel 775 and Amd 939...
Some people will love this motherboard (I know Kage will like it) and some will hate it; tell me what you think...

You mean it has dual connections for having both processors in at the same time to choose between them when you turn on?
Or that it can just hold both in a way of having choice which one you buy?

Would be good if it was the first option

Though... that link won't work for me to find out

EDIT: Sorry...it was just my internet connection:

I still don't understand it though.

Its a dual board for having two processors to speed things up, but does this mean it could hold one of each? Or that it can hold two of the same, AMD or Intel together to maximize speeds on programs which allow it? hehe, i'm confused

It is the ECS PF88, and basically is an Intel 775 board, which converts in about one minute to AMD 939, via a card on the motherboard, that has it's own chipset. The board has two Bios...

I'm confused now....

So....uh?.... I thought an AMD system could support SLI anyway...well all the new boards....so its nothing to do with the processor?

And Banchan, you said its not dual Core? Why the heck does it say Dual Core architecture on it? Unless this means allowing for a AMD or an Intel chip... though I thought Dual Core, meant Dual Core (allowing two procesors at once)

so sorry Banchan but don't have to get annoyed :|

That's what I call a curiosity...
Today are many ones, for example, Pentium D processors are now Budget processors compared to Athlon X2's...
