ECS PF88 Board For AMD & Intel CPUs

Hexus has an interesting CeBIT report on the ECS PF88, the first
mainboard to support both Pentium 4 and AMD Athlon 64 processors. The mainboard
itself features an SiS965 Southbridge and SiS656 Northbridge for full Intel P4
1066 FSB support on the Intel LGA775 platform. Also you can use a converter card
featuring a SiS756 northbridge onboard, 2 slots of DDR400, own MOSFETs, FSB2000T
to support the AMD 939 Athlon 64 chip while the Southbridge is shared with the
mainboard. There are jumpers to disable to Intel support and enable the AMD
card.
