Flowery Abit board a fake

The Inquirer is confirming that the alleged pink Abit nForce 5 motherboard with flower etchings that had appeared on some message boards was in fact an obvious Photoshop job. The real board seems to be an early sample of one of MSI's future nForce 5-based products. Interestingly enough, the board appears to only sport a single parallel ATA connector, hinting that Socket AM2 systems could follow in Intel's footsteps of slowly phasing out the interface. The board also seems to have a new CPU mounting bracket, validating earlier reports that Socket AM2 would be incompatible with Socket 754, 939 and 940 heatsinks.
