    :/ Kinda dissapointing that its an exact copy of DFIs.

    Could this mean that Sapphire doesnt have much faith in boards they themselves develop?

    It could be simply a move to save development costs. Sapphire is a fairly small outfit....

    Or it means they both use the reference design.

    We have a choice for colours
    "To exist in this vast universe for a speck of time is the great gift of life. Our tiny sliver of time is our gift of life. It is our only life. The universe will go on, indifferent to our brief existence, but while we are here we touch not just part of that vastness, but also the lives around us. Life is the gift each of us has been given. Each life is our own and no one else's. It is precious beyond all counting. It is the greatest value we have. Cherish it for what it truly is."

    what the so we might pay less for the Sapphire (as it's the "lower" brand), but get the same mainboard? count me in xD

    what do you think? will the BIOS be made by Sapphire?

    Not 100% shure ofc but asfar as i know this DFi design aint the reference design.
    To start of with the DFI (and now also the Sapphire) are the only ones using digital PWMs, If the reference design had them i bet more partners would use em.
    And i doubt that DFI would use the reference design for their Lanparty boards cause the reference design is what the smaller board makers use and DFI always wants to offer more then that.

    Asfar as i know this is the reference design:
    http://www.tgdaily.com/index.php?opt...3&currentPic=4
    the green white black board that first popped up.

    I guess Sapphire wanted to save money and DFi was willing to sell the design to Sapphire cause they got something better coming?

    but weren't Sapphire's mainboards reference back to the days ATI didn't belong to AMD?

    Monster overclocker board needs stronger overclocker CPUs... Are you saying that those whispers mean Phenon FX will be great overclockers?!

    itll probably be identical bios wise.


    if you look at the pics of the board in the pc form this article http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquir...-phenom-system

    i think thats the saphire board meaing the bios screens form that article are what the dfi bios should look like. they claim its a reference board... does that mean dfi is selling us a reference board?
