“Nathan, our man on the scene in Sydney, reported that the system was putting out over 12,000 points in 3DMark06 and we would assume that is at stock clocked settings. AMD will launch their AMD RD790 chipset, which includes support for their upcoming range of Phenom processors along with PCI Express 2.0 support, when the processors are ready and that date is still not really confirmed at this stage.
GIGABYTE’s particular board pictured below supports a grand total of four PEG slots running at x16 each which supports rumors that AMD shouldn’t be too far away from releasing Quad Crossfire to the world before the end of the year.”

We still don’t know when AMD will announce their upcoming RD790 chipset, but TweakTown managed to get a sneak peak at it at the World Cyber Games. This is a big step for AMD, as this is the chipset that will run Phenom processors, and add support for PCI Express 2.0.
