    ECS PF88 Extreme Hybrid Mainboard

    ECS has brought something very new to the table - a motherboard that carries a number of modern features and one that opens up the way for multi-CPU support. In the oft-boring, stagnant world of motherboard design, the ECS ELITEGROUP PF88 Extreme is a breath of very fresh air.

    Or is it? It's an interesting concept. It's also priced pretty competitively (the mainboard itself at least.) Of course, the market will be somewhat limited, but this may pave the way for future ideas and developments, such is the nature of innovation.

    What would be awesome is if they could take it to the next level .... and somehow have integrated graphics or 2 graphics ports and have dual PC or dual core systems on the same board running different things.. I know it wont happen but it would be impressive

    They should concentrate in mainstream projects. Come on, who wants a SiS chipset if they are paying £70?(without extra borad) I would rather have the ATi Xpress 200P. Although, this could be helpful to ppl who do a lot of testing across platform(CPU's) but then again it is easier to have 2 pcs with different cpus and then just copying program across for testing then it is to take out processors and heatsinks! What would be good is somehing that will support 754+939 or 939+new socket with sli as most ppl here would agree that amd would be a better processor then intel for quite long.
