So realistically how soon can I expect practical RS880/785G support,
if not already? My dev machine/home server/HTPC rocks a Asus
M4A785TD-M EVO with this chipset. I'll assemble a dump later but it
sports, off my head:
Phenom II X4 965
AMD 785G
IT8705 superio and some ACPI interface to it for hardware monitoring -
I wonder if I can work that interface into my P2B-LS :P
8Mbit SPI flash, socketed
