    Found this motherboard on another site showing as in stock. Also showing A8R-MVP as in stock so not a standard RD480 board I am guessing. Didn't think the RD580 was out yet so not sure.

    Anybody any idea's what it migh be?

    The A8R32-MVP should have new RD580 chipset (Xpress 3200 Crossfire).
    With USB 2,0/Gb LAN/SATA II RAID • 2x PCIe x16, 1x PCIe x1, 3x PCI on the board.

    Well I think I have found it at the same retailer and as I have to go up near there in the morning I will pop in and see if they have stock and if they do I may throw some money down and grab one lol.

    Not back in London till wednesday but will connect through the mobile and pda and post tomorrow night hopefully ;)

    Hi there

    I'd imagine its just the RD480 A8R-MVP and they have mis-labelled it.

    As ATI have not even sent out press samples of their own boards yet, so I very much doubt Asus would have managed to have even start production themselves yet. Were looking around mid March for RD580 boards.....

    Don't forget guys that RD580 is still just the northbridge, so you'll likely have the same choice of SB450 ATI southbridge or ULI 1573 and 1575. If you're waiting for the better ATI southbridge then SB600 should be along a couple of months later... :)

    I need to know more to. I am trying to cost up a new pc so any cost details, specs would be great. I have no idea where you got it from as I cannot find any uk site selling them but I hope others retailers including OCUK will have them soon.

    What extra does the RD580 bring to the table? It had better improve on the A8R-MVP, for which I've seen very mixed feedback on.

    Is it common for mobo's to be launched without any reference to them on the manufacturers site?
