MicroStar International, a well know computer motherboard manufacturer has made a little slip-up and pictures of their upcoming motherboard have ‘leaked’ to the internet, namely the 890FX-GD70. And you guessed it will be using AMD’s 890FX chipset, set to be their new flagship chipset in 2010 and one of the core components of the Leo platform. The Leo platform will be AMD’s enthusiast platform and will be made up of the 890FX chipset, an enthusiast DirectX 11 graphics card from ATI and their upcoming high-end Thuban hex-core processor. This motherboard will come with support for AM3 processors, 4 DDR3 DIMM slots, and support for USB 3.0, SATA-III and a whopping six PCI-Express X16 slots. No pricing yet, but knowing AMD it should be around the $200 mark. Thanks to Coolaler for the picture.

first of all, 6 pci-e slots yeey, but still, can't fit 6 cards in unless all of them are single slot.. the pci=e's are too close together. so the max is 4 way cf on dual slot. p.s: 5970 can only go 2 way cuz it's already 2 gpu's which make it quad cf
