nVidia PCI Express for Athlon 64While the chipset and support has not been officially announced by nVidia, there were plenty of boards for Athlon 64 with PCI Express in the nVidia suite. They included a very interesting dual Opteron CK8 board from iWill.
There was even more interest in the Socket 939 nVidia boards with PCI-E. A wide cross section of manufacturers had CK8 PCI-E boards on display including Biostar and Gigabyte.
Abit's upcoming AN8 is another board that will feature PCI Express on the nVidia chipset.
The big question with PCI-Express for nVidia is: "When?" nVidia said that we may see their new PCI-Express boards for Athlon 64 as early as September or as late as 4th quarter. It all depends on how fast the market accepts PCI Express.
