Asus M3N-HT Deluxe to launch soon

Another 780a board pictured

E-tailers across Europe are getting ready for the launch of Nvidia's 780a chipset, and it looks like the Asus M3N-HT Deluxe might be one of the first boards to hit retail. The same board will be available with or without Asus's memory heatpipes.

Although it's based on the same chipset as the Crosshair II Formula, which we told you about earlier, it uses a rather different layout. The board still has three x16 PCIe slots and two PCI slots, but only a single x1 PCIe slot, as this board doesn't use the audio riser card. We're not sure why Asus decided not to include the last x1 slot, as there's no chipset limitation in this case.

The rear I/O is also a bit different, but it still has a D-sub and HDMI connector. You'll also find a single Gigabit Ethernet connector, an eSATA connector, four USB 2.0 and a single PS/2 port on the keyboard here. As mentioned earlier, this board also has the audio jacks at the rear I/O and there is support for 7.1-channel analog outputs, as well as optical and coaxial S/PDIF output.

The board also has headers for a further six USB 2.0 ports, two FireWire ports and a serial and parallel port. It has six internal SATA connectors and an IDE connector, as well.

Expected retail prices of this board seems to be between €200 to about €225 for the Deluxe version and about €210 to €235 for the Deluxe Mempipe version.

Here's a picture of the Deluxe Mempipe version
