    CEBIT 2005: AMD or Intel? Same Motherboard!

    Here at CeBIT 2005, you see innovation galore, but at the ECS stand they have something truly special that stands out as being one of the hottest products of the show. HEXUS brings you the ECS PF88, the first mainboard to support both Intel P4 AND AMD Athlon 64 processors.

    As ideas go - its quite a clever one... i'm surprised Asrock havent come up with something similar before with their cross-amd and cross-intel technology boards...

    I think this is a great idea, although I would like to be able to use an intel AND an amd at the same time...

    big concern about fitting heavy cpu blocks on this - The load support is all on the interface socket by the looks of it.

    Stick a thermalright 120 on there or something else large and heavy and you may just hear a snap.

    Would like to know how they plan to support it for the weight.

    Aurhinius - I too thought that upon seeing the pic of it with a HSF mounted.

    We've got to remember that is a rev A sample... so it's far from finished. I suspect we'll see it attack to a backplate in the case to help support it further, perhaps with some extra support struts, or metal bars along the PCB edges to prevent bending. Of course, this remains to be seen.

    WOW first post

    I'm wondering...

    the pic shows a Socket 939 expanstion card... but the test wehere done using an Sempron 2200 !! so is there's a s939 version of it or there's another Socket 754 expansion card ???


    another thing... is that PCIe connection to the southbridge or some sort of another SiS NB-SB bus thats it used in both Intel NB and AMD NB ( HT-PCIe Tunnel ) ???

    It is a 939 CPU - I believe it is an AMD ES CPU.....

    We will check out about the PCI-E link

    How about come up with a AMD-AMD, Intel-Intel add on to make it a dual CPU system so that you don't need to throw away the old one if you wanna upgrade?

    I suspect the PCIe style connector is just for wiring and isn't actually a PCIe implementation. It might be though... will have to see what David comes back with.

    I wouldnt be surprised if it was kez as its probably got enough bandwidth to copy with the cpu stuff?

    Fair point! However I look at that mobo and see it as two mobos in one - just the right hand side of the board can be directed to the daughterboard, effectively. Let's not forget that the NB for the Intel side is disabled when the AMD board is in... and if that connector WAS PCIe, you'd be using a PCIe interface to connect to other PCIe interfaces... which doesn't seem seem to add up.
