For anyone interested in Nvidia's answer to the AMD 690G chipset - at least one of the Nvidia boards is now on the market.

Biostar TF7050-M2 at MWave and at ClubIT.

I would also point out that newegg has BOTH the TF7050 (HDMI) and the TF7025 (Traditional). Prices are quite reasonable, the TF7050 is $10 off.

Southbridge integrated into northbridge.

Unusual board layout suitable for sleeper cases, NOT for clean builds.

ABit's design yet again unusual, with apparently widely spaced N/S bridges with H/S. Cleaner looking build. No reviews, can't get to manual yet at abit tw site.

There are issues here as there are with most new bords coupled w/vista.
One of the unusual ones is the apparent lack of support for 2x2gb DC sticks in BOTH BioStar boards... even if in ooxx or xxoo config. I have e-mailed them.
