PC Professionale (an Italian magazine) has learned some interesting information regarding the new ASUS A7N266, which they review in their September edition.
Pricing has been released, with the board expected to fetch at market around €234.57, or close to $200 or so. So the boards will be in shops soon - but probably in Akihabara Japan first, as usual.
This Nvidia-Asus combo doesnt seem that expensive for a board with Geforce 2 MX 400, Dolby digital 5.1 surround, 100 Mbit LAN inside. Just plug some Athlon or Duron and DDR and you are ready to rocknrolla.
According to PC Professionale, the board is based on the Nforce 420 that we used to call Crush 12, using the GeForce 2 MX 400 as its integrated graphic processor, and having AGP 4X, five PCI ports, one CNR and an active cooler on the North Bridge. For networking, the board uses Realtek RTL 8100 10/100 Mbit interface.
