ATi has decided to go in the way of NVIDIA and is also creating chipsets for motherboards.
Chip design was first announced at the CeBIT exhibition without pictures and only words, but now in addition to the words added pictures.
Sapphire Technology (anyone heard of this thing ?!) brought to its site among its other unrecognized products images of two motherboards based A3 and-A4 From ATI.
The weirdest thing I noticed in these boards is the lack of DIMM slots, only two, I hope the boards from other companies will be much more, also there is a shortage of RAID but enough PCI expansion slots. But the most interesting thing, no Cooling The Northern Bridge !!
A3 - Naked Northern Bridge…
