Komplett will have two SKUs, one named Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 AMD790FX AM2+ and the second Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 AMD790FX AM2+. The Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 board uses AMD 790FX chipset, supports DDR2 memory and works with Socket-AM2+ CPUs. It is ATX motherboard that supports GbLAN and four PCI-Ex(2.0)x16
Tommy, one of our bellowed readers, informed us that 1695 translates to about 300USD but that is the price with massive Norwegian taxes and he reckons that it should not cost more than 100 to $150 which sounds like a reasonable price.
At this time only the AM2+ versions of the board are available and you can only pre-order the boards. We’ve heard that the official launch might be as early as next week.
