ECS conjures combo P4/Athlon mobo


DigiTimes has the story on a new motherboard coming from ECS that caters to the terminally indecisive: it can host either a Pentium 4 or an Athlon 64. The board accomplishes this trick by hosting the P4 in an onboard LGA775 socket, while the Athlon 64, if used, will ride on a riser card. The mobo packs an SiS 656 north bridge for the Pentium 4, and the riser card includes an SiS 756 for the Athlon 64. The riser also has slots for a pair of DDR400 DIMMs.

DigiTimes expects the board to be formally introduced in April, confusing nearly everyone.
