    A bit frustrating considering this is a very high-end nForce 680i motherboard. Recently we tested the Penryn Yorkfield Intel Quad Core QX9650 processor on an nForce 680i SLI mainboard mainboard and...

    Yeah i have to agree, I find this very annoying.

    Oh well, as to be expected with top end hardware nowadays. I cannot afford a quad core anyways. :)

    You probably won't need a quad core for a while anyway with a Core 2 Duo clocked at 3.7Ghz...just hang in there untill maybe February or March I rekon..

    Good thing my upgrade cycle is 2 years.

    Ill buy the next gen mobo's in a years time and it will be Intel that time not Nvidias.

    Yes, this is a pain... i was considering yorkfield judging by how well they seem to be clocking. The amount of 680i's ive been through in the last year is ridiculous. I really wish Nv would just license SLI to intel, so that those of us who want 2 run dual card setups can atleast make a fair decision over which board we want.

    Can always get a quad phenom and 7-series chipset with quad crossfire....for much cheaper.....and it will probably work.

    Not to say it's better, just...throwing that out there :)

    Supposedly the ES works okay. Intel apparently changed something in the retail version of the chips. Perhaps a counter-action against nVIdia since they're denying them SLI? Oooh, conspiracies! :p

    Well then I need to find a way to get my hands on an ES since there is no way I'm going to change a motherboard AND processor in 6 months.

    According Asus the new Nforce 780i and 750i (See respectively the Asus P5NT Deluxe and P5N-D) will not work with the 45 nm quad core Penryn, although the 45 nm dual core versions (E8000 series) will still work on these new Nforce 780/750i and ofcourse the Nforce 680i will also work with the dual cores E8000 series:

    Meh, whats the point for 780i then?

    Intel really screwed Nvidia on this one... along with all of their users.

    Apparently only the dual core processors. This sucks, I just bought this board based on the fact it would support the upcoming 45nm parts but looks like quad is out of the question :(
