    Sapphire Shows Radeon Xpress 200 Enthusiast Board @ CeBit

    Here is a list of features and specs of this board. It's aimed squarely at the enthusiast and holds back no punches.

    CPU Power Delivery:
    -4 phase CPU power supply with the ability to deliver 170+ Amps
    -provision for passive, water block or active air cooled mosfets (heatsink form factor is the same as the northbridge)
    -voltage range to 2.7V but artificially clamped to 2.0V
    -voltage increments as fine as 20 mV

    Memory Power Delivery:
    -upto 30 Amps delivery potential
    -voltage range to 4.0V
    -voltage increments as fine as 20 mV
    -adjustable VTT (memory termination voltage) to +/- 10% of memory VDD

    NB Power Delivery:
    -NB core has it's own power rail with 4 discrete steps

    HT Power Delivery:
    - HT I/O has it's own power rail with 4 discrete steps

    PCI-E 1.2V Power Delivery:
    - PCI-E 1.2V I/O has it's own power rail with 4 discrete steps

    PCI-E 1.8V Power Delivery:
    - PCI-E 1.8V I/O has it's own power rail with 2 discrete steps

    Board Features:

    Onboard Devices:
    -twin Silicon Image SI3132 SATA II w/ NCQ chips connected via PCI-E, each chip providing 2 SATA ports. (8 SATA ports total; 4 are SATAI and 4 are SATAII w/NCQ)
    -Marvel Gigabit LAN connected via PCI-E
    -one general purpose single lane PCI-E slot (provisioned for 1 more single lane general purpose slot if one SI3132 is not populated as a build option)
    -Azalia audio support via SB450 using Realtek codec
    -POST code LED display
    -Firewire support with ViaVT6306
    -VGA and DVI outputs via Radeon Xpress 200G (enabling upto 4 monitor outputs using an ATI add in card and ATI Surroundview)
    -onboard power and reset switches
    -onboard VID code LED display

    Overclocking Options:
    -HTT frequency upto 500 MHz
    -All relevant memory timings and adjustments including support for new Rev E CPUs
    -HT link ratios X1, X2, X3, X4,X5
    -Independent PCI-E overclocking for the graphics bus

    Thermal Monitoring:
    -thermal monitoring of CPU power delivery circuitry, CPU, NB and ambient

    That's all I can remember for now.

    Here are some pictures of the motherboard and the custom Danger Den waterblocks that will be made available for sale specifically for this application.

    Why are there two waterblocks (+1 on the CPU) on the board and just a heatsink on what appears to be the chipset?

    Looks awesome btw! Does it have onboard video??? And what's the onboard audio it has?

    Any ETA?

    Here are some pictures of the motherboard and the custom Danger Den waterblocks that will be made available for sale specifically for this application.

    Even though I like Its features, The White coloring with Red slots looks ugly to Me, I like the Red as I'm partial to red, But a red/black motherboard would have looked better to Me. So If Sapphire is going to try and sell the motherboard in that color combo then I'll just have to decline, As even purple and black looks better...

    1 northbridge(above 16x pci-e) block, 1 mosfet block, 1 CPU block, southbridge passively cooled. The red and white are ATI's colours, and also the colours of the Canadian flag. Maybe trying to put Canada on the computing map much larger than it is is what was intended with the colour scheme.

    ! If they keep all those features for the production board I might have to skip the Ultra-D and go with this sucker.

    Any word on when it is to be released, Grayskull?

    *Tripping over my jaw* Able to deliever 170+ amps to the CPU @2.0v? That's 240 watts draw... That's pretty freakin' extreme IMO! Looks pretty good overall, just need to iron out your AMR solution and i'm sold.
