Hey all, I just received word from Platform Development personnel at Gigabyte. It seems that all of their i865 / i875 motherboards that are currently on the market were designed with FMB 2.0 and VRM 10.0 guidelines in mind. As many of you may have already read, the problem that is arising deals with the so-called mandatory FMB specifcation move from 1.0 to 1.5. Since the Gigabyte motherboards were designed with FMB 2.0 in mind, this would appear to make them fully compatible with both the current Northwood core Pentium 4's, and the upcoming Prescott core processors. Another interesting comment was that, as far as he knew, the stories you're seeing on various sites are only rumors and have yet to be confirmed. We'll keep you updated as we get more word on this issue.
